Baking soda paste – Take equal portions of baking soda and water, Mix them. Create a thick paste. Apply this paste to the ulcer and let it dry. Once the mixture is dried, rinse your mouth with water and gargle as well. The baking soda neutralizes the acid formed by the ulcer, which eventually treats the condition.

Apple cider vinegar – It has antibacterial properties. Take a tablespoon of this and mix it with half a cup of warm water. Take this solution inside your mouth and rinse with it. Keep repeating for a minute or two. Once this is done, rinse your mouth thoroughly with plain water.

Honey – Honey possesses an antimicrobial effect. It helps in the fast recovery of wounds. Apply honey on the ulcers and let it remain. Since the ulcers are inside the mouth, you can accidentally ingest the applied honey along with your saliva. However, it is essential that you keep applying honey to the ulcer spots after every few hours.

Garlic – Garlic contains allicin which is effective against any infection. To use garlic, cut a clove in half and dab it on the ulcer spot for a minute or two. After this is done, rinse your mouth properly to remove the raw garlic odor from your breath. You can repeat this twice or even thrice each day.

Clove oil – Clove contains eugenol and antimicrobial properties that help deal with all oral issues. In mouth ulcers, take a small piece of cotton and apply the oil directly to the ulcer. Wait till the ulcer tissue absorbs the oil. Remember to rinse your mouth with warm water prior to the application of the clove oil. This will clean up the surface of the ulcer region.
