Ouch! Do you have a nagging toothache? And the dentist can’t see you till when? Calm the throbbing with nature’s painkiller—cloves. Gently apply a small amount of clove oil (found in health-food stores) to the aching area with a cotton swab or a bit of tissue. Or if you can bear to chew and don’t want to purchase a special batch of clove oil, take a whole clove and dip it in honey (which has natural antiseptic properties), then chew the clove slowly, rolling it around the aching tooth. This releases the essential oil and eases the pain.
