More dentist stuff..

So, as you well know I went to the dentist yesterday. What you probably could not tell was that i have developed a certain phobia. I was not always like this but i had a few painful mishaps and here I am. He put some sort of drug inside my tooth and a temporary filling on top and if the pain subsides and does not build up I have an appointment on Monday to replace the temporary filling with a real one. So, as you can imagine I have taken it a step further with ginger and chamomile teas for their anti-inflammatory properties and I do not even work out in case the excess blood flow work against the healing process. No, not obsessive at all! I have a very healthy approach towards dental hygiene. You can say I put on the extra mile. Flossing is my best friend as is clove essential oil.
The Witch inside me prayed yesterday to wake up painfree. I drank some wonderful tinctures I have cooked up in the past. I put a few drops of my echinacea tincture in my chamomile tea and I drank a whole teaspoon of a very potent tincture I have made for my sleeping problems and back pain. The latter has passiflora, valerian root, chamomile and lemon verbena that where steeping in vodka for several months. It works well, but I can only take it at nights. Today, the throbbing in my tooth has stopped and a dull light pain is left and when I woke up I was completely pain free. So, my prayers(and all my spells) were answered. Now, it just has to be like that for the next 48 hours and I will be ecstatically grateful.
Be loved, be blessed and ...floss with all your might.

Great news. I always say nothing worse than a toothache. I've got the dental phobia as well. Same reason. Some bad experiences with dentists. Mine is so bad the tears start to flow the moment I step in the office....and all during the procedure the nurse has to hold my hand. I commend you for your bravery yesterday.

For such small things, teeth sure do cause us a disproportionate amount of trouble. May you stay pain free!

Tumeric and cinnamon also have amazing anti-inflammatory properties, and have you ever heard of oil pulling? Basically you swish oil (I've only ever heard of people using coconut oil) in your mouth for 5 minutes and it has natural anti-bacterial purposes and will help keep things disinfected and ease dental pain. :)

OMG! I hate dentists too. Childhood phobia. I will wait until I'm dying and David is dragging me kicking and screaming all the way.

I feel for you. Keep that tea flowing and cloves nearby. When I have a sore throat, I make a mouthwash of fresh garlic and cloves. The garlic heals and the cloves cut the ache. Happy Flossing!

Hooray for good dentistry and witching that leaves the mouth pain free! Goodness gracious, I know how terrible tooth pain can be. So I'm really, really, really happy you're doing better. ♥

Wonderful news. I hope it lasts and lasts. I too faced a phobia and conquered it. A fear of heights. But the dentist one I'm still working on lol I'm so scared of the dentist that I refuse to manifest any holes. It's worked for almost 49 years! Great witches we are xxx
