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.

About 8 years ago I was told I had periodontal disease and needed to have expensive and painful root planing surgery. I used Melaleuca instead and then the Thieves toothpaste and mouthwash came along which I have been using daily for years. Last week my dentist measured my pockets and they went from 7 to 2-3, with only one 4. My dentist was very pleased with the condition of my gums and my general dental health. I used to have shocking dental problems.

I then told my friend. Her husband had periodontal disease 15 years ago. The doctors recommended Hibiclens to irrigate the gum line through a fine needle. He has low platelets and the Drs wanted to do surgery and steroids, which they refused because it would be life-threatening. My friend's husband wanted her to order 1 gallon of it but the pharmacy was out of stock. On an impulse she researched Hibiclens on the internet and found that it was the cause of his lowered platelets and it was not to be placed in the mouth!

After hearing my testimony about using Melaleuca for gum disease my husband rubbed two drops of Melaleuca on his gums. The next morning as he came down the stairs he had a strange look on his face. This was the first time in years that he had woken up without a toothache! He is so grateful to be able to eat his sandwich without pain for the first time in so long.

Thank goodness for the oils and Young Living! While we are not cured obviously the oils are supporting our gums.
