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.

I would like to share an oil story that I experienced recently. A couple of weeks ago on a Saturday, my tooth and area around the gum began to hurt. I started using the Thieves oil blend on the aching tooth and gum. The Clove oil in the Thieves numbed the pain, but by Sunday morning my tooth and gum really hurt.

I had read about an antibiotic formula using Young Living oils, so I looked it up. I found two recipes. One is 12 drops of Thieves, 6 drops of Oregano and 2 drops of Frankincense. The other one uses Lemon, Mountain Savory and Oregano. I used both.

I alternated capsules mixed with Thieves, Lemon, Oregano and Frankincense. I didn't have any Mountain Savory. I did this for three days. On the second day, my tooth and gums felt much better, but not 100%. I was beginning to question if this would really work. But I continued anyway.

I rubbed Thieves, Lemon and Peppermint alternately on my gums. At the end of the third day, the pain had left. I was so excited. I know that if it had not been for my oils, I would have had to go to the dentist after an excruciating weekend and have a really high dentist's bill.

Not to mention the prescription for antibiotics. Essential oils do not kill the good bacteria in the gut but antibiotics do. As it was I spent a few dollars in drops of oil to fix it myself.

I hope by sharing my experience it will give you the desire to learn more about the powers of essential oils. I am grateful for the knowledge I have gained over the years from using Young Living essential oils on myself and my family. With the cost of health care skyrocketing, it is so important to do all that you can to stay healthy.

Good healthy food, exercise, plenty of water and essential oils for your medicine. It is reassuring to me to know that Young Living Essential Oils are 100% pure therapeutic grade. I feel prepared to tackle just about anything.

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