Toothache? Try this for Some Relief
Toothache is one of those things that can really spoil your day. Luckily, on the third day of having a toothache and being unable to sleep properly, only getting 2 hours per night due to the pain as well as the hot weather, I was introduced to coconut oil dissolved in warm water.
To be honest I wasn’t expecting much from it, I thought it may ease the pain a tiny amount but didn’t expect it to actually take the pain away completely like it did. What you need to do is take some coconut oil and a cup of warm water. Mix the coconut oil into the warm water. After a minute or so, sip some of the mix and swirl it around your mouth, try to keep it in your mouth as long as you can, and keep doing this until it’s all gone. After a little while you’ll notice that the pain has gone, but you should avoid touching the painful area anyway.
The first time I tried this it worked for a couple of hours, I actually managed to get an hours sleep. When I did it again later, I was a bit impatient so I didn’t swirl it around my mouth long enough and it didn’t last long as a result so make sure you try to be patient with it, I know it’s difficult to be patient when you're in pain, but you’ll be happy you were when the pain has gone
