"I am a nurse and had a fungal infection of the skin on my inner thighs. I had used many products over a period of two years without success. I began using the Goldenseal Frankincense and Myrrh soap and after a week I started seeing some improvement. I then used the Liquid Goldenseal Extract directly on the rash and within another week it was completely gone."

Goldenseal, Natural Remedy For Mouth Ulcers & Canker Sores
What are Mouth Ulcers or Canker Sores And How Did I Get One?
Mouth Ulcers and Canker Sores can be extremely painful and difficult to heal. These sores usually begin as a red, ulcerated spot with a yellowish border. The ulcer then becomes covered by a yellowish mixture of fluids, bacteria, and white blood cells. The development of the sore may be proceeded by a burning or tingling sensation. The sores can appear on the tongue, lips, gums, or the insides of the cheeks.
Canker sores range in size from as small as a pinhead to as large as a quarter. They appear suddenly and often leave suddenly, usually lasting from four to twenty days. Canker sores appear most often in females and some authorities believe they are contagious. They can be triggered by a number of factors including poor dental hygiene, irritation from dental work, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, stress, and fatigue. They may also result from an abnormal immune response to normal bacteria in the mouth. Stress and allergies are the most common cause of open sores in the mouth
What Natural Remedies Are Available?
As a part of our USDA sponsored research relating to goldenseal, and involving cooperators from seven universities, we did extensive literature studies concerning traditional uses for goldenseal as well as current medical research. Several articles reported results that support goldenseal's potential effectiveness against Mouth Ulcers and Canker Sores*. The beneficial properties of goldenseal for these problems were known to the Native Americans and early settlers for centuries. We also found that modern research has demonstrated that goldenseal effectively inhibits a wide range of microorganisms including Staph., Strep., and Candida. See our goldenseal research page for an extensive listing of current research involving goldenseal.
Physicians usually prescribe mouthwashes and ointments which contain tetracycline for mouth ulcers and canker sores. However many bacteria have become resistant to this antibiotic and often fungal overgrowths such as Candida albicans (yeast) occur after antibiotic usage leading, in some instances to a case of oral thrush.
Fortunately there is a completely natural remedy for mouth ulcers and canker sores. Goldenseal is a natural plant antimicrobial and modern research has demonstrated its effectiveness against a wide variety of oral disease including canker sores, mouth ulcers, gum disease, and oral thrush*. Several university studies are currently underway to determine why goldenseal is so effective in these areas including one, supported by the National Institutes of Health, entitled Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), Remedy For Oral Diseases being conducted in the laboratories of Dr. Christine Wu at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Dr. Wu has been kind enough to cooperate with Sleepy Hollow Farm on one of our proposed USDA projects. Please see our Goldenseal Research page for an extensive compilation of current medical research regarding goldenseal as well as information about traditional uses and cultivation research.
How Quick Does It Work and How Do I Use Goldenseal?
Many of our customers report that goldenseal provided relief from pain in a few hours time and total healing of the ulcer within a day or two without resorting to synthetic chemicals or antibiotics.
Traditionally powdered goldenseal was applied directly to the site of the sore however we have found the liquid extract to be the most convenient and easy to use. Simply apply the liquid extract to the affected area as needed with a cotton swab.
What Other Natural Steps Can I Take?
For a preventative maintenance program, use our pleasant tasting goldenseal mouth rinse. Formulated with organic spearmint essential oil for a refreshing mint flavor. Use 1/2 teaspoon of this concentrated liquid to 1/4 cup of water daily and swish around the mouth. Scroll down the page for Practical Tips To Help Avoid Mouth Ulcers & Canker Sores.
