You will need:
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Juice of 1/2 lime
- Mix these too ingredients in a tablespoon and heat it. You can hold the spoon directly over the flame.
- It should be hot but not scorching hot. Apply this mixture to your aching tooth with a swab of cotton or an ear bud.
Tip: Keep a candle and matchbook along with the tablespoon of the concoction on your bedside table. That way, if the pain wakes you up, you don't have to trudge all the way to your kitchen to heat up the mixture.
