Essential Oils - 4 Remedies in Mouth Care For Bleeding Gums

The gum problem that you are most likely to experience is bleeding of the gums due to a condition known as gingivitis.
It is caused by plaque buildup on the teeth, smoking or chewing tobacco, a severe nutritional deficiency and even over-vigorous tooth-brushing.
Many of the toothpastes, tooth powders and mouthwashes sold in drugstores and natural food stores contain essential oils such as clove, peppermint, eucalyptus, myrrh and thyme.
Studies have shown that these essential oils fight bacteria and also reduce the buildup of plaque on teeth.
Other essential oils that can help reduce bleeding of gums are cinnamon, sage and rosemary.
It is interesting that indigenous people throughout the world have used sticks from various bushes and trees to clean their teeth.
The sticks they chose were often from the trees or bushes which contain essential oils known to help prevent gum disease.
Here are four ways you can use essential oils to help with the problem of bleeding gums: 1.
Put a drop of the chosen essential oil on a toothpick, and then use the toothpick to loosen debris between the teeth while at the same time preventing plaque buildup and making an application of the oil.
2.
Put a drop of the chosen essential oil on dental floss and then use the floss in the usual way, thus applying a bit of essential oil at the same time.
3.
Apply a couple of drops of the chosen essential oil on your toothbrush before adding the toothpaste, and then brush in the usual way.
4.
Add 4-5 drops of the chosen essential oil or oils to about ¼ cup of water to make a mouthwash.
Shake well, then swish and spit or swish and swallow.
Make certain that the essential oils you use are only the finest, purist, high quality therapeutic oils.
Otherwise you may have problems with the oils you use, and you cannot expect good results.
