Accidentally bit my tongue the other day…OUCH! on my way to an appointment. Didn’t have time to put essential oils on immediately.
Essential Oils to the Rescue for a Tongue Bite!
When I got home, used my go-to bitten tongue remedy: GERMAN CHAMOMILE essential oil to reduce inflammation. But the bite seemed mildly infected and still was bothering me the next morning. So I dabbed on a touch of my favorite highly anti-infectious essential oil blend to kill any hint of infection. That did the trick!
My tender tongue was MUCH better the following day. Decided to continue with alternating a touch of GERMAN CHAMOMILE with COPAIBA essential oil ~ both of which are mild and strongly anti-inflammatory ~ to reduce the little bump and speed the healing in three days, rather than the normal week or so it takes most bitten tongues to get better.
