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.

Im 49 and have had gum issues for about 20 years. Periodontal surgery twice for large pockets and infection. The last surgery was about 10 years ago. 6 months ago the dentist and subsequently his periodontist said I had a 7mm pocket and that I should have surgery. I believe scraping the teeth is a precursor to this in many situations. I went to a holistic dentist for a second opinion. He thought if I was diligent and added a waterpik I could maintain the gums. So I decided to do that.

For 2 months I was diligent about first flossing with Thieves floss, then using a proxy brush in larger gaps between my teeth, then brushing with Thieves toothpaste, then using the waterpik with the gum attachment. At first I added an herbal gum irrigant to the water (that I got from the holistic dentist) in the Waterpik, then after I ran out I added about 3 drops of Thieves. And then I finished by swishing the Thieves mouthwash. Two months later that pocket was 3mm and my teeth were in great shape. Also if I have a sore place on my gums I usually rub Thieves or Clove on it and it is gone in a couple of days.

I did this tooth routine only once a day in the morning. Nothing at night.
