I'm sharing a rainy day picture with you because;
a) it's raining
b) the inside of someone's mouth is not the most elegant or attractive sharing experience
Craig complained of a toothache last week and asked me to make an appointment for him but you guessed it, a weeks wait.
I had a look and it seems he has a piece broken off one of his back molars.
By the time Craig says something, you know he is in agony as he has a very high threshold for pain.
He has taken some paracetamol but applying some clove oil with a cotton bud has been very helpful. It has anaesthetised the area and probably helped in an anti-bacterial way too.
I wouldn't advise using this remedy instead of going to a dentist because pain is the body's way of saying there is something wrong and it could be any number of things but as a remedy to help you get through the wait period till an appointment it's a big help.
I'm a big fan of clove oil for cleaning mould and killing spores and deterring spiders and insects. You can also add toothache remedy to the list too.
We are getting some lovely rain today, just right for the seedlings and much needed.
Big smiles all round.
