Here is a simple recipe which makes a great teething gel for babies and also is a very effective treatment for mouth ulcers and cold-sores.


1/4 cup virgin coconut oil

1 Tbsp organic licorice root powder


If the coconut is already solid, heat it gently so it is liquid; you won’t need to fully heat it. In a small bowl, mix the licorice root powder into the oil and refrigerate. It will set hard and looks like chocolate.

To apply, simply bread a small piece off and squeeze between your fingers and it will melt quickly into a soft paste. Rub gently into the affected area.
