Doctors don’t really know what cause canker sores – painful mouth ulcers – but they say it could be stress, genetics, immune issues or even allergies.
We’ve all had canker sores. For me if I eat cinnamon or something really tangy. But I just deal with it usually never really having thought of a natural remedy.
So here is one that I found that does work and is completely chem-free.
You know your grand mamma always put that aloe vera plant to good use. She may have known more than you think. Because the gel from this magnificent plant has soothing properties that aren’t just for a sunburn. But it can be used for canker sores as well. Make sure you use natural gel-not the green kind.
Stir one teaspoon of aloe vera gel and one tablespoon of water into a glass and swish it gently over the sore. Spit. Do this three time’s daily and it should make it feel better and speed healing.
