What are your go-tos for mouth/head pain? You know, headaches, migraines, canker sores, teething, bumps and bruises...the list goes on. The pain is there for a reason and it's often not wise to just take an over the counter drug to dull that pain. Instead, treat the cause while applying a natural pain reducer. That way, the pain will be slightly dulled but you will also be healing your body rather than simply reducing the pain.
Here is a list of common head area pain and how we naturally treat it-both for inner healing and the pain.
Bitten cheeks/canker sores/sores from braces - A salt water rinse can do wonders for sores, bitten cheeks, and after dental work (in addition to sore throats). We also use Clove oil to apply to the area.
Headaches and migraines - Peppermint is GREAT for headaches and pain. And you can apply it fairly often. Plus, make sure you are hydrated, have visited a chiropractor recently, and your diet consists of whole foods, not processed. My triggers are caffeine, too little sleep, anything with fake sugar, and the sun's position into my eyes. Figure out what your triggers are!
Mouth pain/Teething - Clove oil. Did you know clove oil was used for decades in the dental industry? It’s a great antiseptic, pain reliever, and helps the mouth to heal quickly. Plus it’s the BEST relief for teething. Warm compresses or ice packs will help too. Or try an amber necklace or bracelet...they provide natural pain relief.
