Some Essential Oils and Herbs that could be useful for teeth healing!
My 4 favorite tooth herbs (today) are Basil, Osha Root (sometimes called Bear Root) and Nature’s Biotic or a combo like it, oh and I can’t forget myrrh.
Nature’s Biotic is available from www.grandmas-herbs.com. We use it as a first defense for almost any infection. We take 1 per hour if we are sick. I always have this on hand. Sometimes I mix up my own blend of these herbs and capsulate them or make a tincture out of them.
Myrrh – I love myrrh. It is a very powerful herb. If you have an ailment and don’t know what to try, look up the healing properties of myrrh. It is in Nature’s Biotic – I think that is one of the reasons it is so powerful.
Osha Root has been known to help the body perform its own root canal if it needs one. We chew on it or make tea out of it. It has a very distinct flavor. It brings circulation to your teeth and gums, which is a challenge in unhealthy teeth or gums. Don’t worry it won’t create a root canal in your healthy teeth.
See below (in oil section) for info about basil.
The oils are to be applied on the skin topically. The herbs may be taken internally.
