This may seem like a particularly unpleasant remedy, but gargling or swishing your mouth out with salt water can stimulate the healing of burns in the mouth. When you eat hot or spicy food, it is quite common that you “burn” your tongue or gums. Salt water is astringent in nature, causing the inflamed area to shrink down and compress, leaving less surface area to be exposed and irritated. Mix a few teaspoons of salt in a glass of water and mix thoroughly. Then, swish the salt water around in your mouth for 20-30 seconds; relief from the burning sensation should be very quick.
