I would like to share an experience of relief that I experienced with a toothache.

I awoke early this morning with pain in a tooth cavity. I kept trying to extract the food that was irritating the damaged area of the tooth. I remembered that I had essential oils.

I got out of bed and looked through the oils. I could not find the Clove oil, so I used the Thieves oil blend that has Clove in it. I put a few drops of Thieves in a glass of water. I swished the water through the area of pain.

After I had completed this I was still in need of relief. So I prayed to find more help, the thought came to search in my Essential Oils Desk Reference book for solutions that could help with the pain in my tooth.

I went to go find the book and as I came close to where the book was, I found the Clove oil. I put the Clove oil in a glass of water and swished the oil and water mixture around in my mouth and finally experienced pain relief that I was looking for.

I am now interested to find other oils for other types of pain that I have. In the process of finding a solution for my toothache, I also tried Idaho Balsam Fir on the outside of my face where the pain was. I have also found this oil to be effective for sore muscles. Share your experience of the many uses for essential oils!

These therapeutic essential oils are wonderful! Wow!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: dental,tooth-/-teeth,gums,toothache,cavities-/-caries-/-decay — 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
3.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
4.Associated topics: muscle-pain,muscles — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
5.Associated topics: dental,tooth-/-teeth,gums,toothache,cavities-/-caries-/-decay — "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
6.Associated topics: muscles — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
