March 7, 2008, Newsletter Issue #151: Herbal Treatments For Toothache

Tip of the Week

  The best treatment for toothache is a visit to the dentist. But if this is out of the question, try using cloves. They contain antiseptic and anesthetic compounds and have been used for thousands of years to numb the pain of recalcitrant teeth. Modern day dentists still use oil of cloves as a local anesthetic.

Oil of cloves can be obtained from most pharmacies and health food shops. It should be applied directly to the tooth and will produce a numbing effect. Alternatively, crush a clove and mix to a paste with a little warm water. Spread on a cloth and apply to the aching tooth.
