Home Remedy for Toothache

So you have an unbearable toothache and that's giving you a headache as well; and you can't get to your dentist immediately. Try this home remedy.  I've tried it and it works.

You will need:
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Juice of 1/2 lime

  1. Mix these too ingredients in a tablespoon and heat it. You can hold the spoon directly over the flame.
  2. It should be hot but not scorching hot. Apply this mixture to your aching tooth with a swab of cotton or an ear bud.
The asafoetida and the lime numb the pain while the heat soothes the pain. It will help you sleep through the night.

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.
