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.

When I had a massive bone infection due to a dental implant I used Thieves oil. On Monday the Dentist told me to take massive antibiotics for 5 days, saying as it was so extensive he would have to remove the implant on Friday. It was not fun getting it put in and I could only imagine the pain of it coming out. He had no remedy beyond that.

Initially I used Thieves every 30 minutes. A white congealed puss appeared on my gum. I removed it with a sterile dental instrument. Then I added more Thieves, 2 or 3 or 4 drops neat topically on all the sore areas. I continued like this all day and perhaps the next - sorry not sure - it was a while back. The whole side of my face hurt as the infection was throughout the bone - a very deep infection.

When the application of Thieves started to pinch (hurt slightly) I extended the application time to every hour because I observed that less puss was appearing. After doing that for about a day, it started to sting again, so I extended the time to every 2 hours. Again, when less puss appeared, I extended the time between applications.

From Monday to Friday when I saw the dentist the second time, he expressed 'amazement with the improvement from the anti-biotics' as he never thought they could 'clean up the mess'. I told him I had used essential oils and handed him back the prescription, saying 'Thanks, I didn't need this'.

He did not want to know what I had used even though it had produced miraculous results as his license only allows him to prescribe anti-biotics (anti=against, biotics=life). It was a 'win' for me, as I required no further surgery, and perhaps a 'loss' for him because I required no further $$$urgery.

I was probably drinking oils like Peppermint or Orange or Lemon in my water at the same time during the day, but it was the enormous amount of puss the Thieves pulled out that really did the trick for me. I may have put something like Wintergreen or PanAway on the outside cheek initially, - it hurt, I'd try anything - don't clearly remember what oils I choose cos it's an intuitive process with me and I just go with what I get a 'hit' on.

I knew the oils were getting on top of it by the middle of the second day (Tuesday) because the pain was reducing. An infection cannot live in an alkaline state. If we choose to listen to our body, infections are the body's call for clean alive water and cleansing.

Hope this helps.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: dental,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,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
