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.


While my father lost all his teeth at age 40 and my mother in her 50's, I am now 56 and have all my own teeth.

I recently went to the dentist for the first time in 5 years. With that lapse in not going to the dentist for a check up, the Doc had scheduled a deep cleaning. I had been brushing my teeth with the Thieves oil blend or Peppermint for nearly three years. The dental hygienist asked me if I was the person they thought I was.

Confused, I asked why. She told me there was nothing to clean, no tartar etc and was just making sure she had the right client. She asked what I was using, so when I told her baking soda and therapeutic grade essential oils, she was silent. I was in and out of their office in 15 minutes.

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
