When you have a boy and his sister and a van and a pencil, well, you get to expect strange injuries. For scratched up uvulas (or gums, tongues, and other such things), my go-to uses the most basic of herbs. A strong infusion of chamomile and calendula, with a couple drops of clove essential oil brings quick relief and healing of swelling and scrapes. The clove is an old remedy for toothaches, though it is very strong and must be diluted, especially for kids. Store the infusion in a glass Mason jar, shake well before using, gargle, spit, and carry on!
