Easy DIY Oil Recipe for Toothaches
Toothaches are terrible. Sometimes you can’t get to the dentist right away so it’s good to have a home remedy ready to use. This pain-relieving tooth oil is easy to make and you can use it for many purposes:
- toothache relief
- makeup remover
- skin softener
- bath oil
Here’s how to make your own Clove Oil recipe right at home.
Clove Oil Recipe
Use extra virgin olive oil, a liquified form of coconut oil, or avocado oil. A few ounces will do. Place the oil into a small jar with a lid.
Put 1/2 tsp of ground cloves into the oil. You can also use fresh cloves if you grind them up in a mortar and pestle. Put the lid onto the jar to keep out any dust or debris.
Allow the ground clove to steep in the oil for one week.
Strain the oil (if you choose) with a fine strainer and put the clove-infused oil into the jar for safekeeping until use. Store in a cool, dry, dark space like under the bathroom cabinet.
To Use Your Clove Oil
For a toothache
Using the tip of your finger, your toothbrush, or a Q-tip, rub a small amount of the oil onto the affected tooth and surrounding gums. Reapply as needed.
As a makeup remover
Using your fingers or a soft cotton ball, sweep the clove oil over your face to soften your makeup for removal. Follow with your regular facial cleanser and any face treatments you prefer.
As a skin softening treatment
Apply a small amount of the clove oil to your skin and rub it in. Do not rinse.
In the bath
Drizzle a little of the clove oil into a warm bath. Enjoy the scent and the softness of the oils on your skin.
