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.

In June of 2010 I had to have jaw surgery with bone grafts. The surgeon told me that I would need to plan on about four days of recovery before returning to work. I had been to the Young Living convention in early June and had heard a testimonial that a girl had used Frankincense for her jaw surgery so I thought I would give it a try.

For about a week prior to surgery I would rub Frankincense on my gums all over the area that I was to have the surgery. The morning of the surgery I rubbed Frankincense on my gums, my outside cheek and my brain stem.

I then rubbed Cypress on the inside of both arms not knowing which side they would be putting the IV in and also on my gums.

Usually the person inserting the IV has a difficult time finding a vein, since mine seem to be rather small. I always end up with a lot of bruising at the site, but this time she said it was very simple and created no problem. I had no bruising at all from this procedure and no aching at the site of the IV.

After the surgery I awoke without the usual groggy feeling of anesthesia. I went home to rest and applied more oils just on the outside of my cheek over the surgery site. I used Frankincense, Clove, and Cypress. I had no other bleeding from the site after I removed the gauze.

I feel asleep for several hours, and awoke slightly wondering why the numbing had not worn off, since I felt absolutely no pain at all. I was able to eat a light meal that evening with no soreness, pain, or bleeding.

The next morning I woke up after a pain free night's sleep and returned to work. No one could believe that I just had jaw surgery the day before without seeing the stitches inside my mouth to prove it.

I returned for my follow up visit with the surgeon. He was amazed at how quickly everything had cleared up and especially how the bone had regenerated so quickly.

Did I forget to mention that I had also been taking AgilEase starting a month before the surgery.

I'm so grateful for God's gift of essential oils in my life! Young Living Oils are truly a gift from God.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: bone-regeneration,bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
2.Associated topics: bone-regeneration,bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
3.Associated topics: jaw-pain — "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
