Topical Oil Blend for Toothaches

Ouch! Are your teeth causing you major pain? Don't worry, we're not going to tell you that essential oils are the cure (they're not... get yourself to the dentist!). But diluted properly and applied topically, certain essential oils can really help to mitigate inflammation caused by dental issues, and take the edge off the pain that's happening in your mouth!

No need to put oils directly on the gums! You can apply this roll on to your face or jaw in the area corresponding with your pain, and it will absorb through your skin and work effectively on your dental pain.

If you do want to use essential oils on the gums to numb the pain, please make sure that you are either buying a product designed for this purpose, or diluting your oils sufficiently in a carrier oil.
