Yesterday I was at my organic farmer’s stand and a new outfit was selling bee / honey related products. What was interesting for me was the propolis and tea tree toothpaste. It said it had something for tooth decay, tar tar and plaque. And it was on sale, only 60 pesos per tube and the gel was almost black. Interesting. I bought 3 tubes. Then on to research more about this at home.
Funny how it seemed counter intuitive but some people say that raw honey does good to stop tooth decay and bleeding gums. Ah, since I’ve got both, may as well test this on myself. We’ve got lots of different raw wild honeys at home, may as well try one. I tried the honey from my sister in law who is sure that the natives who gathered the honey got it from wild bees in the forest of Ilocos and of course it was raw. The taste was interesting, it tasted like my childhood remedy my mom used to put on our gums to sooth the pain of an erupting tooth. Was that brand Harabe de la barre? I don’t even remember the proper spelling.
I got a dropper to drop honey in a cavity where the filling had come off. It was painful and infected in my jaw a few days ago but I have it under control with strict diet and cleansing my mouth with oil pulling, oregano oil, jamming the cavity with cotton soaked in clove oil. I’m not giving up this molar without a good fight. I’ve noticed the key was to keep it clean without food debris. So far so good. Raw honey on gums and teeth is delicious.
