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 my experience with several dry sockets and the oils. I have had 3 dry sockets in the past 2 years. The first one lasted 5 weeks of excruciating pain even though I went to the dentist several times and had it packed. The second one lasted 3 weeks and that's because I started to do my own research on the internet and found that the Clove oil would help. So after two weeks I started to use a small piece of gauze dipped in diluted Clove oil (50/50) and inserted in the open socket and that would give me immediate pain relief. After a week of this the socket started to close completely. What a relief.

Last thursday I had another tooth extracted with lots of infection. The tooth had 6 stitches. By Saturday afternoon the earache and dry socket pain started again. But this time I could not insert a gauze in the socket because of so many stitches. I started to put Helichrysum on the outside of my ears for the earache, made the antimicrobial blend and applied that on the outside of my jaw where the tooth was extracted and then applied a gauze on top of the extraction site dipped in the Clove oil. I did this many times during the day. As soon as the pain would start I would do it again. But also rinsed by mouth with a saline solution and the Fresh Essence Plus Mouthwash. After every meal this was done and before bed also with the gauze in for the night.

Today is one week later and now have minimal pain left in the socket. I am very limited on taking pain pills because I am a chemically sensitive person. The oils have come to my rescue and am so thankful for the relief of this excruciating pain that comes with a dry socket. No doctor or dentist or homeopath has been able to help me before this.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: dental,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,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
