TOOTHACHE HOME REMEDIES & HELP FOR DRY SOCKET PAIN
CLOVE OIL - Put a couple drops of clove oil on a cotton ball and apply to tooth. For larger area you may want to mix the drop in 1/4 teaspoon of organic olive oil then dip the cottonball in the mix. Clove oil is very potent but it's probably my favorite of all the toothache remedies!
This is a great dry socket remedy also. Clean the socket first (irrigate with warm water syringe) and pack the socket with the cottonball infused with a couple drops of organic clove essential oil. This simple oil will greatly help toothache pain!
If you can't find clove essential oil, your local drugstore should have a Red Cross Toothache Kit. This kit contains an oil called Eugenol which is basicly clove oil.

WHOLE CLOVES or POWDERED CLOVE - When using whole cloves dip the clove in some honey and gently chew it to release the essential oils. Or make a paste with powdered clove and water or olive oil. Apply directly or use a cottonball.
CAYENNE PEPPER - Apply a few grains of cayenne pepper to the tooth or make a paste. This may make your tooth ache pain worse for only a minute before the pain subsides.
GINGER ROOT - Chew a small piece of ginger root or make a paste with powdered.
ECHINACEA TINCTURE - Apply a few drop of tincture to the tooth and gums. This is one of the best toothache home remedies as it will not only numb the pain but fight infections as well.
SAGE - Make a strong cup of sage tea. Swish each mouthful and hold for 30 seconds before swallowing. Do the same for each mouthful until cup is gone. Sage is also a natural tooth whitener!
OIL OF OREGANO - Oil of oregano is deeply penetrating and germicidal. Use directly on the tooth or put a few drops on a cotton ball and wedge between bad tooth and gum.
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL - Charcoal has a great ability to draw toxins and can be very beneficial for an abcesed tooth or just a toothache. Make a poultice and apply as long as possible.
ACUPRESSURE - Squeeze your index finger (same side your tooth is on) on each side of your fingernail. Squeeze and rotate back and forth for several minutes.
FIGHTING GUM DISEASE AND GENERAL ORAL HEALTH
MYRRH ESSENTIAL OIL - A great antiseptic for your mouth and more! Make a paste by adding a few drops to some baking soda. Rub on gums then use to brush your teeth. You can also add a few drops to some vodka then mix with water and use as a mouthwash. (essential oils and water will not mix hence the need for vodka) This is a good remedy for canker sores also.
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE - Use 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash. Soak your toothbrush in HP to sanitize!
SALT - Add a teaspoon of salt to warm water and rinse.
HOMEMADE MOUTHWASH RECIPES -
GRAPEFRUIT SEED EXTRACT - Add 3 drops of grapefruit seed extract to 3 ounces water for a rinse and/or gargle. (Available in most health food departments) Use 5 - 10 drops in a glass of water to soak/sanitize your toothbrush for 15 minutes.
SOLOMON'S SEAL ROOT TINCTURE - This amazing herb is mostly known as a bone and muscle remedy so it's no surprise that it is wonderful for teeth and gums.
