I’ve stashed a few bottles of Clove Oil in my first aid kit. After burning the inside of the roof of my mouth on hot food, I was ready to try anything to relieve the pain. I took a cotton ball and sprinkled several drops of the Clove Oil on it. Then (not following instructions) I placed the cotton ball directly on the burn inside my mouth and held it there for 30 seconds. After the 30 seconds, I removed the cotton ball and felt no more burning pain on the inside of my mouth. The instructions state if using Clove Oil as a treatment, you should dilute it with water when touching the skin or insides of your mouth. Only use the Clove Oil straight up when applying directly to a tooth that is hurting.*****
Yesterday, while watching the dogs play outside in the back part of the property, I came across this beautiful butterfly perched on the dirty bird bath. I hadn’t had a chance yet clean the bird bath out, and put new water in for the birds.
With the temperatures dropping into the low 20’s the late evening, early morning hours, and somewhere between 46 – 60 degrees during the day it’s strange to see a butterfly. I’m thinking with all these drastic weather changes the poor thing is confused.
How was your weekend?
