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.

I've just completed four years or orthodontic treatment as part of a TMJ therapy program. I go out of my way to avoid any pharmaceutical or over-the-counter painkillers, so the oils were a true Godsend for me.

When I began experiencing pain after my orthodontic adjustments, I performed the following routine. First, I took a mouthful of the Thieves mouthwash and swished it around in my mouth for as long as 20 minutes. Then I took a cotton swab dipped in PanAway diluted with oil and swabbed the mix on the gum tissue surrounding the sore teeth. It was amazing how effectively this treatment reduced the pain -- especially at night when I needed to sleep.

Of course, the routine needed to be repeted at intervals. However, the discomfort from having my braces adjusted always disappeared within one to two days.
