Myrrh is a deeply healing oil, it is especially effective for festering, difficult to heal wounds, this makes it very useful fo mouth ulcers. Being in the mouth, an ulcer (open sore or wound) is constantly moist, being moved and having things bump across it, making it difficult to heal, not to mention painful and uncomfortable especially when it comes to eating.
Myrrh essential oil is the perfect antidote to the problem of getting an ulcer to heal, just mix 1 drop with a teaspoon of olive oil and then apply with your finger tip to the affected area. Do so morning and night, after cleaning your teeth (and potentially Gargling with Myrrh) and when you feel to through out the day.
Myrrh is also useful for other types of ulcers as well as bed sores, get in touch if you would like to discuss a custom made product to help with these conditions: firstname.lastname@example.org – Click here for Custom Blends.
Caution ~ Avoid using myrrh essential oil in pregnancy, although it can be useful in the 3rd trimester to prepare for birth make sure you seek professional advice for this. Tip: replace myrrh with lavender essential oil for treatment of a mouth ulcer, but only after the first trimester.
Internal Use ~ essential oils are not suitable for internal use unless you are being treated by a professional health practitioner. Use in the mouth is considered safe and not technically internal use.
