Yesterday, I was enjoying a lovely pot of pear caramel tea and a fresh chocolate-dipped scone at my fave tea place when, suddenly, dry mouth!

Yuck. A veritable bad braces moments. Was it the black tea? What the scone too dry? (Too sweet, more likely.) Probably a combination. Drinking plain water didn’t help.

lemonFortunately, some fresh lemon wedges came to rescue. Just squeezed them into my water. Aaaaah! Relief. (Better than resorting to artificial saliva. Who knew there was such a thing?)

Dr. Weil’s website suggests the lemon juice trick, too, and talks about other suggestions and causes (medical) for dry mouth.
