Sore-Gum Soother

0

Dental work is often necessary. But your mouth is a tender place for a drill to do its work! Here’s some healing help…

Massage sore gums with myrrh tincture (available at health-food stores)…or put a half-teaspoon of the myrrh tincture in a cup of warm water and use it as a mouthwash to help heal the painful areas.

Note: Although myrrh is safe for most people when used in small amounts, be sure to inform your dentist of any herbal treatments or supplements you take or plan to use in recovery.
