Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

One Monday a few weeks back I had one of my students come to me with an impacted molar. She was in a great deal of pain and discomfort. She could not chew solid food, and the tooth was causing her to lose sleep.

She asked me if I had an essential oil that could help her. I told her to bring a cotton ball to school, and I would bring her something.

I went home and mixed up 10 drops of Thieves essential oil blend and 5 drops of Copaiba essential oil. I brought this mix to her on Wednesday. I told her to put 1 drop of essential oil on the cotton ball, place it in-between her infected tooth and gum in the morning, and repeat it again at night.

She came to me on Friday of the same week and said she could chew solid food again and that her pain was significantly decreased. I told her to keep up her regimen over the weekend and to check back with me on Monday.

She came in on Monday, and all the swelling was gone. The gum looked normal, and all the pain was gone too. She went into her dentist on Tuesday, and he told her that she should have the tooth removed eventually, but it was no longer a problem.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: teeth,gum-disease,toothache — Study 1: "[Oil pulling] would benefit the general population by giving more confidence in the ancient practices, thus preventing tooth decay and loss." Study 2: "Oil pulling therapy has been equally effective like chlorhexidine on halitosis and organisms, associated with halitosis." Study 3: "The oil pulling therapy showed a reduction in the plaque index, modified gingival scores, and total colony count of aerobic microorganisms in the plaque of adolescents with plaque-induced gingivitis." Study 4: "Oil pulling can be used as an effective preventive adjunct in maintaining and improving oral health." Study 5: "The myth that the effect of oil-pulling therapy on oral health was just a placebo effect has been broken, and there are clear indications of possible saponification and emulsification process, which enhances its mechanical cleaning action."Link
2.Associated topics: teeth,toothache — "Both clove and benzocaine gels had significantly lower mean pain scores than placebos. No significant difference was observed between clove and benzocaine regarding pain scores. Clove gel might possess a potential to replace benzocaine as a topical [anesthetic] agent before needle insertion."Link
