I had been chewing gum to relieve my dry mouth but my mouth and tongue often got very sore. So I tried rinsing my mouth with warm water with coconut oil in it and got almost immediate relief. Now I"ve stopped chewing gum and I sip water with coconut oil in it throughout the day and this helps a lot. I still need to suck lozenges or sugerless candy from time to time during the day, but at least I've gone off gum and my mouth is no longer sore.
