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 73 year old dad just had an infected molar extracted. A lot of pain in his jaw, sent home with gaping hole and not a lot of help with the pain. He has Young Living Melrose and Peppermint oil, so I suggested that he put those right on the extraction area, in that order or alternate. Perhaps put a drop on the toothbrush after regular brushing and work it into the gums. He was surprised when the pain went away and pretty soon got religious about applying the oils several times a day (as needed).

I saw him a few days later and did a Raindrop session for him. We included a topical application of Thieves on his jaw, along with Wintergreen to move it deeper into the bone. He applied some Wintergreen directly on the gum as well. I then sent him home the last of a bottle of Clove oil, and he started using that too. You've probably heard that Clove is long revered by dentists for tooth pain, but its also a powerful antiviral/microbial. Dad has since obtained a bottle of Thieves.

By the age of 73, teeth are often showing wear and tear, gums tend to draw away from the tooth and infection has a fantastic breeding ground. Dad has similar symptoms showing up in another molar and is already applying the oils to it, we'll see what his dentist has to say with the progress.

Little by little, my family has come to value the effect of the oils, even though they may not fully understand how and why they work. Its been fun to watch!

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