Temporary analgesic for toothache
Clove oil has analgesic, antiseptic and antibacterial properties. I always have a bottle of clove oil at home just in case I’m waiting for a dental appointment and I’m experiencing pain. I apply a small amount of clove oil on the gums near the painful tooth. I also take medication for the pain. The clove oil creates a temporary numbing sensation until the medication starts to work. Sometimes the clove oil is more effective than at other times, but this probably relates to the cause and severity of the pain.
For anyone considering using clove oil for the temporary relief of toothache, be warned that its taste and numbing sensation can be slightly unpleasant.
If you are in any doubt if clove oil is suitable for a dental condition, please check with your dentist before using it. I assume that clove oil is not recommended for babies and children.
I tried using clove oil for some mould in the shower but it didn’t work. I’m not sure why the clove oil didn’t work because many people have success with it.
Perhaps I didn’t use enough of the oil, I didn’t wait long enough for the oil to work, or I didn’t scrub the mouldy area thoroughly enough.
