Tea Tree Oil, the pure oil from the Australian Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia), can be applied directly to the gums with a cotton swab to kill bacteria. A drop or two of Tea Tree Oil can also be used on your toothbrush and dental floss.
White Oak Bark has an astringent effect which helps tighten the gums and stop bleeding. The capsules containing white oak bark can be opened and the herb powder can be applied directly to the gums and held in place with a cotton ball.

I like the herb powder because it has a mild abrasive effect.
