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.

My husband gets canker sores (little painful sores in the mouth) quite frequently, mostly from stress. Once they are there, he cannot seem to leave them alone. They get inflamed and irritated quickly, causing him quite a bit of pain.

He now dabs a drop of Thieves essential oil blend neat (undiluted) at the site when he first notices a canker sore developing. To apply the Thieves blend, my husband just puts his finger over the bottle, tips it back and forth, and applies the essential oil that is on his finger to the sore.

The initial application stings, but it numbs and soothes the sore. This seems to help it heal or, at the very least, keeps my husband from making it worse while the canker sore heals on its own.
