Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

In 2013 I was expecting our second baby boy. I was about 5 months along when my wisdom teeth became infected.

I sought out the help of a dentist to get his take on the situation, and he suggested that once I had the baby to get my wisdom teeth removed. "Gee, doc, thanks. I hadn't thought of that!"

Anyways, I had SO much pain and discomfort that I could barely talk. My face looked like a million bees stung it. I couldn't eat, yawn, or laugh. I told him that I needed some kind of relief NOW.

The dentist prescribed an antibiotic for the infection and HYDROCODONE for the pain. Mind you, I am 5 to 6 months pregnant. I asked the dentist if hydrocodone was okay to take while pregnant, and he said yes.

So I was off to the pharmacy, and I double checked with the pharmacist if hydrocodone was okay to take while pregnant. She looked at me like I was crazy. She said it came along with some serious risks... risks that I was not willing to take.

Feeling very disappointed that there was no relief available for a pregnant woman, I reached out to my friends, family, and trusty ol' Google. My cousin emailed me and suggested Young Living essential oils. Honestly, I thought she was crazier than the crazy doctor. But I was desperate, and, if it couldn't hurt, what was I to lose?

So the next day I went to a local shop that sold Young Living essential oils and bought Clove and Thieves. I put a drop of each oil on a Q-tip and applied it on my gums, tooth, cheek (inside and out), and jaw.

I kid you not.... Within 24 hours, I no longer noticed the discomfort. Within 48 hours, my face looked normal again, and by the end of the week I could eat and talk like a normal person.

I was hooked... not to mention my baby was healthy and not introduced to narcotics. I am so grateful for these essential oils!
