Clove Oil - works a treat21 messages in this subject.
|You are supposed to dillute essential oil since they are SUPER concentrated. I use and am very familiar with essential oils and the only one that you could use pure is lavender. Essential oils can be amazimg but you have to do research on them because some can also be toxic and harmful, if not used correctly. Clove is oil is very strong and " hot oil" and must be very diluted. Tea tree oil is also very good but must be diluted as well.|

|I used clove oil undiluted on a sore under my tongue. It helped with numb the pain but soon I developed very painful swelling (ulcer like bumps) under my tongue. I have not been able to sleep or even talk for 4 days and it does not look any better. I'm never ever using undiluted Clove oil again. In fact this has really scared me about using essential oils.|

|I tried clove oil after a painful tooth extraction and now have a cluster of 8 mouth ulcers inside my mouth next to the extraction. Won't use again!|

|Seriously you need to use a carrier with it. Add some other oil then clove oil. Or add it too your wet toothbrush then toothpaste on top and brush. Otherwise it will burn.|

|Anbesol oil works a treat but don't over do it. Also my doctor told me eating pineapple helps, something in the enzymes (not tinned).|

|Same iv been using clove oil for tooth and gum ache n now hav a massive red area with ulcers on it.. Do u think its safe to use anbesol/bonjella on these ulcers now??|

|i agree with eve, at first i read comments saying that clove oil is great, so i popped to boots and got a bottle to try, used it possibly up to 6 times on the first day i brought it, and the next day i noticed my ulcer infact was bigger and more painful. |
Clove oil numbed the pain, but the results of it made it worse. I'm thinking of trying anebesol instead, has anyone tried that before? if so, does it work?
I've also heard, lack of vitamin B12 is the result of ulcers. so in future I guess i'll keep my Vitamin B's up

|Yes the pain goes for ages with clove oil, but avoid at all costs. The ulcer grows twice the size and I have developed more around it. The oil burns it, so actually keeps the user there longer! NO NO NO !!!|

|I used clove oil just now on my ulcer, it tasted discusting and burnt abit, plus it smells vile :-( but on the other hand I can't feel the pain of my ulcer anymore so all good so far I suppose.|

|I used to get 20 - 25 ulcers practically all the time. I have recently been diagnosed with crohnís disease and apparently, the mouth ulcers were a sympton of this. I know when my Crohnís is flaring as Iíll start to get ulcers again. But then when I take my crohnís meds the ulcers clear up...I still them but they only last a day which is HEAVEN!|
A med that really worked for me was Adcortyl in Oralbase - really quite yucky in the mouth so I only used it at night but it did speed up the healing process.

|Blimey, I canít live without it, it seems to be the only thing that gets rid of the pain, and yes the pain is bad when first put on, but it soons stops and feels great for ages afterwards. I got it in Boots, and it didnít say anything about causing ulcers...makes you wonder though.|
Also, the doctor has given me a mouthwash called Difflam which is also helping to ease the pain.
Iíve had them for 3 weeks now & they still donít seem to be going anywhere. Iím kinda fed up!

|thanks for the warning, i really dont think its worth the pain of putting on the clove oil. its nasty. Ian, if i had 7 mouth ulcers id be lucky! sometimes i get up to 15 or 20 at a time. so it could be worse?!|
|ed 12 January 07|
|If you read the back of the box that Clove Oil comes in it says - ícan cause mouth Ulcersí..........glad it worked for you but others beware!!|
|Lucie 11 January 07|
|I used Clove Oil and ended up with 7 mouth ulcers - never again!|
|Ian 11 January 07|
|where do you get clove oil?|
|rick 10 January 07|
|i just tried clove oil and the pain when i put it on was almost unbearable, i almost started crying. thought i was going to pass out. the effect doesnít last that long either.|
|ed 10 January 07|
|i have tried this but it leaves a really horrible taste in my mouth how do you get rid of it?|
|bethany 5 January 07|
|Iíve tried the Boots mouth ulcer stuff yesterday and it hurt like hell when I put it on, after about 2 hours it felt great but today it all flaked off & theyíre hurting again so Iím not impressed.|
Iíve also tried Anbesol gel & liquid, Bonjela, bicarbonate of soda, whiskey, and a few others but nothing has been better than the Clove Oil I bought yesterday. stops hurting instantly, donít know about itís healing qualities but for pain relief itís a winner.
