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.

Tatters, my 16 year old cat knocked his front right canine tooth and it was hanging out of his mouth. He would not let me look at it to see what happened, but he allowed me to put Helichrysum on his front paw.

It is a massive pain killer, high sesquiterpenes, monoterpenes and terpenes which the French medical use is for blood cleansing, and can be used for tissue pain, regenerating tissue and scar tissue. It's the strongest pain killer I have.

I originally tried the PanAway oil blend, but it has Clove in it, and that's not the best for cats, so as Helichrysum has no offending phenols, it seems to be doing the trick. He appeared grateful when I got the oil each morning, so that was the best signal.

Once again with all infections I used Rosewood on him, he's accustomed to it on his back paw (too close to the face is too much like a flower for my man..) But the monoterpenes are antibacterial, antifungal, anti infectious and antiviral so it will not become infected, but will drain the infection as it has in his last altercations.

When the infection and pain reduced, he let me see what is going on. It might have been bothering him for a while because he originally liked a new food, then I pulled the bag out on his older food which is much softer.

The purrs were never ending when I put Helichrysum on him, then he could eat. He looked a bit miserable, and just wanted to sleep after I oiled him. He was not very active so I added Rosewood to address the internal drainage.

A couple of days later, the tooth disappeared, and there was 'mouth odor' so I applied Wintergreen directly or as close as I could get to the missing tooth area. He sucked his lips quite a bit so I copied him, showing him that is how I do it too.

He duplicated the action, and we agreed that it was a bit strong. I continued this treatment for about 4 days, and now the offending odors appear to be gone. His temperament was back to normal, so all my treatment seemed to be a good fix.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: 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: 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
