My 11 year old son had to get a tooth out and I was not crazy about the needles for freezing due to the chemicals etc.. Usually they would use 5-7 needle pokes to freeze the entire mouth before pulling a tooth. The tooth was also infected. I used the Thieves and Helicrysum oils as directed in the Essential Oils Desk Reference to help reduce the swelling and tackle the infection. I also used it prior to the tooth being pulled and the doctor only used 2-3 needle pokes in a light dose to the immediate area, not the whole mouth and my son was able to have his tooth pulled with very little discomfort.

We were told to give him Advil or Tylenol every 4 hours for a couple days for the pain but instead I applied the Thieves and Helicrysum oils again when we got home and it stopped the bleeding almost immediately as well as took care of the pain. My son was smiling ear to ear saying mommy it doesn't even hurt. We put another dose before he went to bed just in case and by morning he felt 100% pain free and returned back to his original routine. It was truly amazing, I am sure he probably didn't even need to 2-3 needle pokes but decided I would try this on me first before him the next time I need to get dental work. Once again, these oils are truly magical.
