Canker Sores And Its Home Remedies

Canker sores are oral lesions that sting inside the mouth. This can be painful and can make a person difficult to eat or talk. It may be caused by a number of different factors including a minor injury in the mouth, food sensitivities, bacteria, emotional stress, nutrient deficiencies, shifting hormone levels, and medical conditions.

There are some home remedies that we can try to speed up the healing process of canker sores. Continue reading to know more.

Tea Bags

Tea is alkaline and full of healthful tannins as well as astringent compounds that may all help relieve pain. Hold a damp tea bag over the canker sore for five minutes.  Cool the tea bag for even more relief.

Alum Powder

Alum powder has astringent properties that can help shrink tissues and dry out canker sores.
This remedy will require us to create a paste by mixing a tiny amount of alum powder with a drop of water and then dab the paste onto a canker sore. Leave it on for at least 1 minute and rinse the mouth thoroughly. For best results, repeat daily until the canker sore is gone.

Aloe Vera

The use of aloe vera may help reduce the pain caused by canker sores and speed up the healing process. Dry the ulcer with a cotton bud and apply the gel on it using a cotton bud. Also, drinking aloe vera juice is recommended. Repeat as needed.


Aside from soothing a sour stomach, chamomile tea can also calm canker sores. It contains chamazulene, a natural anti-inflammatory agent, which will help accelerate the healing process. Simply allow the tea to cool, and then swish it around the mouth for a minute.

Baking Soda Rinse

Baking soda works by reducing inflammation and restoring pH balance thus healing canker sores.
For this, we simply need to dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 cup of water and then swirl the solution in the mouth for 15 to 30 seconds and spit it out. Repeat every few hours as needed.


Research has shown that it may reduce the pain and size of canker sores when applied a few times each day. Aside from this, honey will also help prevent secondary infection.

Coconut Oil

The antimicrobial abilities of coconut oil may cure canker sores caused by bacteria and prevent them from spreading. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce pain and redness.
For best results, apply the generous amount of coconut oil to the sore several times a day until it is gone.


  1. I’m here to testify about what Dr Okosun did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 4 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Rose Smith on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Okosun on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, Dr Okosun prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as Dr Okosun assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact Dr.Okosun for help via drokosun55@gmail or whatsapp +2348124363791
