We have all suffered from toothache once in our lives and we can safely say that it is one of the most uncomfortable pains that one can feel, as it produces a generalised pressure in the entire body. Toothache is generally due to the tooth decay or other types of gum disease, and for those raging moments of pain a fantastic alternative is the use of natural remedies, among which is the use of saffron.
Why does saffron relieve toothache?
Saffron relieves toothache as it contains certain anaesthetic properties, which when used on teeth, as an infusion or mouthwash, helps reduce pain and discomfort in teeth.
How do I go about making a saffron mouthwash?
Infusions which contain saffron that are well-concentrated and topically applied onto teeth and greatly relieves pain when experiencing toothache pain. This is not only used on adults, but can also be a good homemade remedy for babies who are undergoing teething.
To that end, for having a good homemade remedy as an alternative before going to the dentist appointment, or simply to check if it is a sporadic pain for which it is not necessary to go to a specialist, we’re about to recommend here a very useful recipe for these situations.
- 5 cloves
- 1 cup of water
- 3 saffron strands
Heat water in a saucepan and add the 5 cloves. When the mixture is about to boil include saffron and a pinch of salt, but must keep a close eye on the saucepan as when the water starts to boil it must be removed from the heat so as to maintain all the ingredients’ properties.
To eliminate all the infected substances, pour the mouthwash into a glass bottle and place to boil in a saucepan and once the liquid of the mouthwash is warm pour it into a glass.
It’s time to gargle or rinse your mouth with the homemade saffron mouthwash mixture, and you’ll start to feel pain relief in the area.
Tip: Remember not to swallow it!
