Natural Wisdom Toothache Remedy!

I want to write about this before I completely forget what my last toothache was like.

I have had one wisdom tooth for as long as I can remember… and for the most part it doesn’t cause me any problems.  Only ever twice has it flared up, the first time was a while ago… all I remember was that it flared up and calmed down within a couple of days, without doing anything specifically for it.

This time the flare up was so bad that I wasn’t sleeping at night.  The pain was so bad!  I figured it would settle down on it’s own, but after 3 sleepless nights, and two days of only wanting to eat soup, I decided it was time for me to take action against it.

As a nursing mom, I try to avoid medication.  Along with my natural ways, I was looking for a natural cure for this brutal toothache.

I figured that I must have had some infection, and that if I went to the dentist, they would want to prescribe an antibiotic.

So – what is nature’s best antibiotic?  Garlic! 🙂

This is what I did!

Take a small dish and put a little splash of olive oil in it.
Crush 1 clove of garlic, and place it in the olive oil.
Swirl it around a little bit, to infuse the olive oil with the garlic.
Using a q-tip, dab it in the oil and get a chunk of the garlic on the swab.
Place it on the inflamed area of the tooth.  Keep it there for as long as you can stand it.

Be Warned: The garlic is very strong!  It may even burn a bit.  You are going to be tasting and smelling garlic for a while after this.

Do this about 3 times a day, until your tooth is feeling better.  It took a couple of days, but my tooth is back to normal, and all is well!

You may still need to see a dentist, just sayin’.  This is only my experience and what worked for me.

Good luck!
