Cloves have been traditionally used for generations to alleviate toothache. Researchers found cloves to be as effective as benzocaine gel, a topical gel used by dentists to reduce needle pain.They applied cloves, benzocaine gel, or a placebo to the inside of the participants’ mouths. They found out that cloves and benzocaine gel lowered levels of pain similarly, but not with placebos.

12. Using Capsaicin From Chili Peppers


Capsaicin, found in chili peppers, are used for natural pain relief. It can cause a mild burning or tingling sensation when applied topically.

Many pain-relieving products contain capsaicin.
