Natural Remedies for Receding Gums

Sadly, a page that listed a number of great natural remedies for receding gums (on another site) contained an AD with a virus!  So, I decided to just quickly post some remedies here:


Aloe Vera Gel – very soothing and healing to the gums and tissue – take a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and swish it around in your mouth for a few minutes, then spit out.

Coconut Oil – soothing, cleansing and anti bacterial – place a teaspoon of coconut oil in your mouth and swish around for several minutes, then spit out.

Lemon Essential Oil – anti bacterial and strengthening to gum tissue. You can add a drop to your toothpaste, or just put a drop in water and swish around your mouth. I recommend only Young Living essential oils.

Hope that will get you started on the path to natural treatment for your receding gums and Living Free from toxic toothpastes!


Update: I can report that I tried a combo treatment of coconut oil, with a drop of lemon, plus a drop of aloe vera gel. I think that will be my method of application. It felt super healing. I’l report after my next dental check up if this works to reduce receding gums!
