Rub These 2 Essential Oils on Your Gums and Teeth and Fight Tooth Decay, Plaque and Bad Breath Naturally

Before dentists, people were using essential oils on tooth pain for centuries, and at last clinical studies are beginning to prove that this method can be just as good as the modern day dentist. 

Essential oils have been shown to have a positive effect on teeth and gum health, along with their other therapeutic properties.

From a 2014 study published in the Journal of International Oral Health, entitled “Possible Use of Essential Oils in Dentistry,”:

“Essential oil rinses are found to be equally effective in inhibiting plaque. A study carried out by Pizzo et al. on plaque inhibitory effect of amine fluoride/stannous fluoride and essential oils showed no significant difference in efficacy of both. As chlorhexidine causes staining of teeth on long term use, essential oils can be used as an alternative to chlorhexidine rinse. Essential oils have shown to possess antimicrobial activity against subgingival periopathogens too.”

Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil effectively reduces bacterial load and yeast and fungal infections, as well as treats viral infections, many of which are the source of tooth pain.

In studies it has been confirmed  that it is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antiprotozoal and relieves the symptoms of gingivitis and those of denture stomatitis. 

Researchers at Switzerland’s Institute of Preventive Dentistry and Oral Microbiology at the University of Basel studied the effect of tea tree oil on bad breath and they concluded that tea tree oil decreases the bacterial colonies that cause halitosis, giving you fresher breath.

Clove oil

Clove oil is one of the oldest  remedies for tooth pain, thanks the ingredient eugenol it has been used for centuries to anesthetise patients suffering from tooth ache. Eugenol is not limited to having it's benefits just on oral hygiene, is a helpful at curing pain all over the body, as it possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as working as a local anesthetic.


You will need essential oils of both clove and tea tree. Rub straight into your gums or use it to brush your teeth with. The antibacterial properties will help prevent cavities, gingivitis, bad breath, and tooth decay. Apply 2 drops of these oils twice a day with a carrier oil such as coconut oil.
