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.

My 11 year old son had to get a tooth out and I was not crazy about the needles for freezing due to the drugs used. Usually they would use 5 injections to freeze the entire mouth before pulling a tooth. The tooth was also infected. I used the Thieves oil blend and Helichrysum oils as directed in the essential oils reference book 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 Helichrysum 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 have 2-3 needle pokes but decided I would try this on myself next time I need to get dental work.

Once again, these oils are truly magical.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: abscessed-tooth,dental,toothache — 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: abscessed-tooth,dental,toothache — "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
