My wisdom teeth have been growing in since I was 17 years old. I grew up in a dentist office because my aunt is a dental hygienist. Through all my time spent there, they had told me from the very beginning that I will one day be facing the removal of all four wisdom teeth because there was simply no more room left in my mouth for them to grow in naturally, as it is most common with other people worldwide. Little did I know how much of a toothache this would be.
Midway through 2007, the first tooth broke through the skin. Agh. And that was the last of my teeth as I knew them. That was the beginning of a nightmare that still has not even ended yet. I’m a mere pussycat when it comes to something like a surgery and, being that my wisdom teeth are impacted—yes, all four of them—a full-blown oral surgery is a must.
Well, I don’t know about you but I sure hate the sound of that! I can only put it off for a couple more months before a toothache just about kills me.
I had discussed with my dentist last year that I would come in for the surgery in the beginning of January. Problem is that last May we spontaneously booked our New Year’s trip to Italy and I had completely forgotten that I had made a promise to myself and the dentist to finish up with the drama of fixing my teeth for good.
Italy totally blinded me. Lol. I got a phone call from the dentist last December reminding me that I had an appointment to get them removed. Of course, I canceled because of our upcoming trip without booking a future appointment…straight up out of fear.
It’s already April and 2016 is flying by. I’ll probably be booking my appointment for surgery sometime soon. You better believe it will be sooner than later because a toothache has started to creep up on me. Nothing says relief like a good old swabbing of clove oil. Essential oil, that is.

Warm up water and salt. Add lemon essential oil. Mix well.
Gargle and swish the water around your mouth as you would with mouthwash. Spit out. Do not swallow. Repeat until you have no water left.
Dip your cotton swab in coconut oil. Add clove essential oil to the moistened swab.
Using your q-tip, swab around the area and hold firmly on the area for about 30 secs. Once the pain subsides and your mouth feels numb, you can discard the swab.
Do not drink or eat for at least 15 minutes.
