When I have a canker sore

When I have a canker sore
When I have a canker sore

My testimony

I think I brush my teeth with a brush with bristles that are a little too hard, which sometimes irritates my gums and the inside of my mouth. Normally this is not a problem, but during periods of significant stress or fatigue, when immunity drops a little, I have canker sores that appear on these irritations inside the cheeks or lips. . When I was younger, I didn't do anything, I waited for it to pass, which usually took a good week (when I didn't "chew" them too much). Since I started using hydrosols and essential oils, I get relief much more quickly.

My tip

As soon as the canker sore appears, I give mouthwashes after each meal with 1 tablespoon of bay leaf hydrosol which I circulate in the mouth for 1 to 2 minutes before spitting it out. If mouth ulcers are caught in time, this tip makes them disappear in two or three days. If the canker sore is already very ulcerated and painful, I supplement with a 30% aromatic oil: I pour into a small 5 ml amber glass bottle at least 60 drops of St. John's wort oil and 30 drops of essential oil of noble laurel (this mixture gives a little less than 5 ml). I apply this aromatic oil to the canker sore using a cotton swab 4 to 5 times a day.
People prone to mouth ulcers can use laurel hydrosol as a daily mouthwash for prevention.

What does herbal medicine say?

A large number of essential oils are very good local antiseptics, but noble laurel is THE plant for mouth and throat conditions. It is a powerful antibacterial and antiviral, as well as an excellent oral and dental antiseptic. Essential oils are delicate to use on mucous membranes. As a hydrosol, noble laurel demonstrates rapid and spectacular action on canker sores. For canker sores, in herbal medicine, mouthwashes with hydrosols are recommended, as they are effective and non-irritating.

Did you know ?

.Different factors such as fatigue, stress, certain foods (strawberries, pineapple, tomatoes, nuts), certain medications, chemotherapy, hormonal changes (menstrual cycles, menopause) can promote the appearance of canker sores. they appear regularly, they can indicate a deficiency of iron, zinc or B vitamins

I use hydrosols SAFELY

The tip presented here has no contraindication, the hydrosols being perfectly suited to applications on mucous membranes. This recipe has proven to be life-saving on numerous occasions for people suffering from very painful chemo-induced mouth ulcers. The aromatic mixture with laurel essential oil should not be used in children under 6 years of age, and should be stopped in adults if they experience irritation. In this case, it will continue with hydrosols and St. John's wort macerate alone.

LAURUS NOBILIS The noble laurel

Originally from Asia Minor, the history and legend of the laurel pass through Greece where, dedicated to Apollo, it crowned heroes in full glory and brought protection to those who wore it. It is currently found in Europe, from the Mediterranean to the coasts of the Channel and the Atlantic. It is for its culinary qualities that bay leaf is best known. With garlic, parsley and thyme, it makes bouquets garnis. However, it is endowed with many other virtues. As an essential oil, it is in fact a powerful immunostimulant, antiseptic, analgesic and neurotonic (promotes concentration and self-confidence). As a hydrosol, it is essential for oral and dental conditions and essential for its numerous anti-infectious properties.
