Cloves for Toothaches
My grandmother always used to ask us to chew the cloves whenever we complained of tooth ache of gum inflammation. While the pungent flavor might prevent you from trying this out, the anesthetic and anti-inflammatory nature of these tiny black spices are really tempting. Just chew a clove or apply clove oil on the infected area to reap the antibacterial and antiseptic properties of this kitchen ingredient.
