How to us

Pour only the liquid to a cup, for only the amount of liquid that enough to rinse your mouth, switching in the mouth for about 3- 5 minutes before brushing your teeth.

Use it 1 - 3 times a days as need it.

This will last you for about 7 – 9 days. If water become less or dry out, then you can add more water to the mixture.

Warm the left over medicine every day

Note : Warm the left over medicine at least 2 -3 minute every day, for about 7 – 9 days, before you want to discard the unused portion away. Add more water as need it, and leave the unused portion in refrigerator during night time to protect the medicine from rotten.

Where to buy

You can find makrut leave (Kiffir lime leave), at any Asian grocery store, or Asian super market. If you cannot find fresh, then look for one in the freezer. But if you can find fresh one, then you can stock up, and save makrut leave in the freezer for the next time you need it.

Or if you don't know where to buy, then you can go and ask people (owner) at the Thai restaurant, ask them, where they bought makrut leave, and you want to buy some for yourself. They will be able to tell you, where they buy it from, because Thai restaurants are always have makrut leave to put in their curry and tom yom soup.

I got my at Hong Kong market for less than three dollars per pack, but it only 0.09 oz., it about almost two hand full for one pack, but you should buy 2 packs, and use all two packs, because more makrut leave, it's will be more effective to heal your tooth pain, and swelling gum faster and better.

*** The original recipe is from my grandfather, who made this remedy for me on the time that I still little as a child.
