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.

Several years ago I awoke with horrid pain and swelling in jaw, neck and around a tooth. Upon going to a dentist which I feared. He said, a root canal (which I could not afford) or pull the tooth.

I wanted to keep my tooth and said no to both of which the Dentist said your going to be in so much pain you'll be calling back today and smirked. I applied 3 drops of Thieves and Peppermint to a gauze and rotated it back and forth to each side of the tooth. (This is hot and will make your eyes water) I put the same amount of drops over the swelling to outside of jaw applying very warm moist heat several times a day.

At night I applied the oils to gauze placed inside jaw against tooth and applying during the night if awakened by pain. By morning the pain and swelling was reduced. I did this daily a little less often each day by 7 days all pain and swelling was gone.

I continued for another week applying 1 drop of each oil inside and outside once a day and night just to be sure it was under control.

I did receive a letter from my dentist asking if I had gone to a different dentist being unsatisfied with him he would like to talk to keep me as a patient. LOL
The tooth did try to flare up 6 months later and I attacked it at first sign applied just the oils and was gone the next day but continued with the oils for a week.

This year Christmas 2010 I had another tooth swell up out of the gum where I could not shut my mouth and swelling in the jaw, very painful. This time I had Clove on hand and does it take the pain away. I added it to Thieves and Peppermint did the same protocol with faster results. At any signs of feeling the tooth or slight pain I put Clove on right away to make sure the issue is resolved.

I learned years ago just because something feels better it is still a good idea to continue longer with the oils to make sure it is healed.

Thanks YL, I have my teeth and saved a lot of money to buy more oils. I'm very happy.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: abscessed-tooth,dental,gums,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,gums,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
