Home remedies for mouth ulcers (07.09.17)


Mouth ulcers refer to the small white spot on the cheek. The tongue or clustered on the inner side of the lip known as canker sores. In severe cases the person is not able to eat or drink anything.


Eat plenty of salad with raw onions. Onions contain sulphur and have healing properties.

Diet should include yogurt and other soured products, such as cottage cheese, and buttermilk.

Rinse your mouth with milk of magnesia to coat sores.

Orange juice is helpful in preventing the canker sores of the mouth. Drink it up in 2 or 3 days it will go away. Lack of vitamin C causes them. You can also take Vitamin C pills if you don’t want to drink all that orange juice. Cover the ulcer with a wet tea bag; the tannin will help dry up the sore. Mix Sodium bicarbonate powder with water.

It is a very effective first aid remedy. This mixture can be used as a mouth rinse as well as swallowed to help make the body more alkaline. Use a toothpaste containing sodium bicarbonate instead of the standard toothpastes high in fluoride and other chemicals.

Antacids can soothe canker sores by reducing the acidity in your mouth that can irritate them. Try stress-relieving acupressure exercises. Avoid constant stress. Take time to exercise, sleep and relax.

Avoid eating fish or meat of any kind for two weeks. The consumption of animal protein increases the body’s acidity, which slows healing. Avoid chewing gum, lozenges, mouthwashes, tobacco, coffee, citrus fruits, and any other foods that you know trigger these sores.

Avoid hard toothbrush bristles or sharp-edged foods such as potato chips or dry bread crusts. Too much acid from fruits and vegetables, and spicy foods can also trigger mouth sores.

Keep the bowels regular to prevent toxic build-up. Walk regularly walking in fresh air to oxygenate the body and stimulate bowel movement.
To avoid getting canker sores, it is important to maintain a proper balance of minerals, acidity, and alkalinity in the body.

Do not use the same toothbrush for longer than one month.

Application of peppermint oil helps, as it is an anaesthetic agent.

Mix coconut milk with honey and massage the gums 3 times a day.

Keep 1 glass of chilled water and 1 glass of hot water ready at hand. Gargle alternately with hot and cold water.

Boil 2 cups of water. Add 1-cup fenugreek leaves and remove. Cover and keep for sometime. Strain the water and gargle 2-3 times a day.

Boil 1 tsp of coriander seeds in 1 cup of water. Remove when slightly warm gargle. Repeat 3-4 times a day. Raw tomatoes help rid mouth ulcers. Gargle with tomato juice 3-4 times a day also helps.

Mix 7 parts of sugar candy with 1 part of camphor. Apply on the blister. Mix a pinch of turmeric powder to 1 teaspoon of glycerine and apply. Avoid hot or spicy foods to minimize discomfort. Mild mouth washes such as salt water or over-the-counter mouthwashes may help.

Pouring salt directly on the ulcer can prove effective, however this can be extremely painful and can scar. Rinse mouth and especially the affected area with sage tea 3 times a day. The improvement can be seen within 24 hours.

Gargle a mouthful of warm vinegar with half tablespoon of salt for about 30 secs, 3 times a day. Extremely painful but healing can be seen in about 2 days. Make a paste of baking soda and water—apply directly to the sores

Rinse your mouth with salt water at least three or four times a day. Take small quantity of salt and mix it well in warm water. Instead of rinsing swiftly, let the salt water stay in the area in which you have the ulcer for a while before you spit it out. It could hurt, but then it will gradually cure the infection. Do this after your meal. However, remember not to swallow the water.

Apply ghee or honey regularly on your ulcer. Let it stay for a while and then spit it out. Do this often and you will see your ulcer gradually shrinking.

Tulsi leaves have some wonderful properties that can make your mouth ulcercure faster. Chew some tulsi leaves along with some warm water at least three times a day for it to cure.

Castor oil is known to relieve heat from your body. If you get mouth ulcer often, apply castor oil in the affected area. It not only cures the ulcer, but also help in easing out the heat.

Drink coconut water and butter milk every day. They will cool your body and help relieve the pain.

Avoid having spicy food, hard drinks such as tea, coffee and other aerated drinks when you have mouth ulcer. Instead, opt for fresh juices. Cranberry juice is said to help in getting rid of ulcers. Try having cranberry juice after every meal.
