Cloves have the power to stop an annoying toothache right away! They are rich in a substance called eugenol (between 70-90%) that has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and analgesic properties. Back in time, cloves were the first choice made both patients and dentists to get rid of toothaches, especially when dental instruments looked like torture utensils than something that helps to relieve pain.
If you’re facing with a toothache, all that you have to do is to put 3-4 cloves in your mouth, wait them to moisten in the saliva, and then crush them between your teeth (the healthy teeth). Thus, the oil in them will be released. Place with your tongue the crushed cloves, near the hurting tooth.
You can also use clove essential oil, but not excessively because it becomes toxic to your body.
Pregnant women aren’t allowed to use cloves.
