How do Myrrh and Encinco help the mouth?
Myrrh is stated to possess antimicrobial, astringent, carminative, expectorant, anticatarrhal, antiseptic and vulnerary properties. Traditionally, it has been used for aphthous ulcers, pharyngitis specifically for mouth ulcers and gingivitis. Myrrh is excellent in the sore mouth and extreme ulceration of mercurial ptyalism.
Dr Ellingwood (1919) noted that combined with Yellow Dock, he has used it cure the severest cases of nursing sore mouth he had ever had, after other lauded remedies had signally failed.
Dr Sebi’s tooth powder can be used to brush the teeth, also as gargle and mouth wash.
