Fix Your Tooth Abscess at Home in 24 Hours for Under $20
Four days ago my husband had some minor tooth pain in a tooth that has a gum line cavity. He took an over the counter pain medicine and stubbornly ignored it even though he knew it was a tooth abscess.
The next morning he woke up with swelling in his lower jaw. He was suffering horribly intense pain. Labor Day weekend of course! This had to happen on a national holiday weekend! He took over the counter medicine once again. He also did our normal natural remedies for a tooth abscess. He tried a bit of garlic and some vinegar with minimal relief. He has had a tooth abscess a few times, always in the same tooth. He refuses to have it worked on. He’s a bit stubborn. So home treatments or the occasional antibiotic are all I can get him to do.
So I emailed my iMom for advice. She gave me the name of a natural remedy to try. Swedish Bitters.
What are Swedish Bitters?
I had no idea what Swedish Bitters even was. In fact I had never once heard of it. With a bit of research I found out a good bit about it. Swedish Bitters are a traditional herbal tonic. Originally formulated in ancient times by Paracelcus, Swedish Bitters was thankfully rediscovered during the 18th century by Dr. Urban Hjärne and Dr. Claus Samst, two Swedish medics. Later, an Austrian herbalist Maria Treben began promoting it for its wonderful ability to treat various illnesses.
How to Use Swedish Bitters for a Tooth Abscess?
I followed the instructions my iMom gave me. Her instructions were: ‘Put just a little in some warm water and then slosh it around the tooth. He can do that as often as he needs to. The pain will be numbed for a while (hard to say how long), and then just do it again. It will get rid of the infection as well.’
My husband is a home remedy skeptic! He doubted it 100%. He prefers his Asprin and Tylenol over any natural remedy, but with me around he doesn’t have an option. So my husband reluctantly followed her instructions. Within moments of the first use my husband’s pain eased up. The pain came back in a couple of hours but he just rinsed his mouth with the Swedish Bitters again. He didn’t have to depend on the over the counter medicine he was taking that we all know isn’t very good for us. No emergency visit.
In 24 hours my husband had a home remedy for his abscessed tooth that actually worked so well his swelling was down and 90% of the pain was gone. I would recommend anyone who has issues with their teeth to seek out Swedish Bitters to have on hand.
Other Uses for Swedish Bitters
Thanks to my iMom I learned that Swedish Bitter are great for an abscessed tooth, but it is also great for many other uses.
- Bee Stings
- Tooth Aches
- Manage Blood Sugar
- Reduce Stress
- Balancing Stomach Acid
- Helps Liver Functioning
So there are many reasons you should keep Swedish Bitters on hand in your home. My husband is enough proof for me that it is effective for curing an abscessed tooth.
Other Natural Home Remedies for a Tooth Abscess
So you may not have quick access to Swedish Bitters. Your pain may strike you in the middle of the night when nowhere is open. So while you wait for the stores to open or for your Swedish Bitters to be delivered consider some other options to get you started.
• Garlic – Bite down on a small chunk of garlic clove. It burns for a few seconds, but then it begins to numb the area with pain. The Antimicrobial properties of garlic have been used for centuries to treat infections.
• Clover oil – A few drops of clover oil near the abscess will help ease the pain within a minute or two for most people.
• Whiskey – No need to swallow if you are not a fan of alcohol. Just give it a good long swish around the problem area.
• Cayenne pepper – You can use either a fresh pepper or the powder. If you have a fresh one just chop it or blend it with a small amount of water. Add the paste in your mouth. This is going to be spicy if you are not use to peppers. Capsaicin inside of peppers has been used since ancient times to treat pain.
Or skip all this and get to the Swedish Bitters. It works so much more than any other natural remedy we have ever used for tooth pain.
