Aromatherapy Formulas Recipes for Healthy Mouth

3 Aromatherapy formulas recipes to make your own mouth-care products

A healthy mouth could potentially be one of the best assets you can have for yourself. Generally, poor oral hygiene can cause a person a lot of problems. Poor oral hygiene not only affects your appearance but also your personal relationship with others.

Toothpastes that are advertised and sold in the market would normally be accepted as the solution for this problem but beyond consumer’s knowledge some of these products are laced with harmful ingredients that can get to your blood stream since the substance gets in direct contact with the membranes of your oral cavity.

Relevant to poor hygienic practices are gum problems that is one of the major cause of tooth loss and the same has been related to the development of heart ailments, cerebrovascular accidents (stroke) and other respiratory conditions.

Gingivitis and abscess is one of the leading dental conditions that many suffer from. These conditions may lead to infection and pain.

Gingivitis is a medical condition that is the swelling of the gums due to infection and it can even cause bleeding. Another known effect of this condition is the receding of the gums that may show the roots of your teeth. With this exposure the teeth becomes prone to development of cavities that is secondary to the infection of the gums.

Abscess on the other hand is cavities filled with puss that is a result of tooth decay left untreated or non-extraction. This case is secondary to infection as well.

Aromatherapy is a method in alternative medicine that may be just the solution for you if you are looking for an all-natural way of preventing these gum-problems.
