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.

My 3-year-old son decided to jump from the coffee table to the chair a couple times before thinking he could jump from the chair to the coffee table. Well, he missed, and it all happened in slow motion, as I am sure you can imagine!

As I got up and headed for my essential oil bag, I told my husband to stay calm... and there was going to be a lot of blood. My son had hit his mouth right on the edge of our coffee table. Sure enough, there was a lot of blood -- so much so that I couldn't tell where the blood was coming from... his lip, nose, tongue, or what?

I grabbed my Peace & Calming essential oil blend and put it on my son's feet, my husband's shoulders, and on myself. Then I put 3 drops of Lavender essential oil in the palm of my hand and rubbed it all over my son's mouth.

Within moments the bleeding slowed enough for me to take a look in his mouth to determine the damage. That is when I saw his two front teeth facing backwards. Needless to say, we took him to the emergency room!

Halfway there, our son had calmed down. While there, he was calm enough to let the nurse and doctor examine him. We were sent home and told to take him to our dentist within the next 3 days and to give him Tylenol for the pain.

At the dentist's office we were told that my son's two front teeth had to come out. If we did not have them removed, they would cause him pain and eventually get infected. There was no chance of saving the teeth. However, the teeth didn't need to come out right away. We could book the appointment for after the holidays.

Meanwhile, I continued to use Lavender essential oil, and I also was able to put a few drops of Frankincense essential oil on my son's gums and teeth. We also used the KidScents Slique Toothpaste.

By February when we went back to the dentist, she was shocked. My son's teeth were white with only a discoloration that a dentist would notice, and the teeth were back in place!

To this day my son still has his two front teeth and can eat apples! We believe the essential oils contributed to saving his teeth. We are all so very thankful for the oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: dental,tooth-/-teeth — 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: dental,tooth-/-teeth — "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
