Clove Oil - Natural remedy for Abscess: Clove oil is an established remedy for tooth pain and can be used until you are able to get to the dentist. Clove oil is derived from the dried leaves, stems and flowers of an evergreen tree. Oil of clove possesses anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic or pain relieving properties. Clove oil can be applied directly on the gum to relieve pain. Suggested use is mixing clove oil with olive oil as it is so strong that it can be irritating when used on its own. You can also crush five cloves with two teaspoons of warm water, add one teaspoon of olive oil and keep in a small bottle. Apply with cotton wool when required.
Health Warning: Never use clove oil on children's teeth.
