toothache relief by doTERRA essential oils

One of the more debilitating pains I have encountered, is toothache. And, as luck would have it, toothaches usually seem to present themselves way past the time that all dental offices have closed. Yes, even on weekends. So inconvenient.

There are a number of ways to find relief until you can get the chance to see your favorite dentist, and the following have all been reported by essential oil users to have a positive effect while they wait for that 9am appointment on Monday morning!

  • cloves by amandabhslater @ FlickrBlend 9 parts Myrrh essential oil with 1 part Clove  essential oil, and apply directly to the aching tooth.
  • Roman Chamomile essential oil, mixed with a carrier such as coconut oil, olive oil, or grape seed oil is great for tooth pain.
  • Use Clove oil, neat, for a toothache. Put 1 drop on cotton ball, and place it near the tooth. You could also apply the oil with a cotton swab. Clove has a natural numbing effect, and contains eugenol, which is also used in dental applications such as temporary fillings.
  • Apply Melaleuca (tea tree) essential oil directly to the affected tooth.
  • Try a hot compress – soak a cotton ball in water containing 3 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil. Hold against the affected tooth. (I wouldn’t suggest this if there are exposed nerves.)
  • Peppermint essential oil has also been reported to help lessen the effects of toothache, due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties.

Keep “toothache blend” on hand

  • Carrier oil – 1 tablespoon (such as Sweet Almond, Fractionated Coconut or Sunflower)
  • Melaleuca- 6 drops
  • Roman Chamomile – 4 drops
  • Myrrh – 2 drops
  • Peppermint – 2 drops

Place all oils in clean small container, shake to blend. Apply 1 drop on aching tooth and surrounding gum.

Oil Pulling

Try using a popular Ayurvedic technique known as oil pulling both for calming tooth pain, and as a general oral health practice.

Use about a tablespoon of carrier oil (I prefer a good quality, organic coconut oil) infused with just a couple of drops of any of the oils mentioned above. Swish them around in your mouth, concentrating on “pulling” the mixture through your teeth – so it gets into all the nooks and crannies of your mouth. Do this for as long as you can stand, then spit it out. Do not swallow this mixture, as it now contains many toxins.

Bonus! I’ve seen many reports of teeth being whitened by this process!

Warning: Do not use any of these methods as a permanent solution to toothache! Please see a dental health professional to determine the underlying cause of the pain.

 

Comments

  1. Great info. Thank you. I have an essential oil blend of roman chamomile and jojoba. Would that work for toothache pain?

    • Hi Gina, I’m not sure that jojoba oil is the best oil to put in your mouth. It certainly is edible, but it’s non-digestible (which just means that it will leave your body in the same state as it was when it entered your body.)

      You can certainly try it, but it may be more effective with something like coconut oil, or olive oil.

Speak Your Mind
