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.

About a year ago a dental x-ray showed I have a fractured root in an area which is jeopardized by very little bone mass around it and it was infected allowing no pressure from chewing in that area. The dentist wants $5,000 to resolve this problem.

I began applying Clove oil and Wintergreen directly on the gums around the tooth. In about 1-2 days the discomfort was gone and within a few weeks I could chew soft things in that area with only a slight feeling of the infection. I was very careful for a few months with chewing and now 1 year later I can chew anything there, NO DISCOMFORT and I have so far saved $5,000 - that buys A LOT OF Clove oil!

I do treat that area with respect by not aggressively biting down on such foods as carrots, nuts, etc hoping to repair the fractured root. I now apply the Clove only periodically just for good measure.

In another 4 months I'll have an x-ray to find out what's really occurring there. Then I'll update this testimony. Clove is a natural numbing oil; Wintergreen may be helping to re-place some of the bone loss but the forthcoming X-rays will show the results. Needless to say, I am thrilled with the oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: 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: 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: abscessed-tooth,dental,sensitive-teeth,tooth-/-teeth — 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
4.Associated topics: abscessed-tooth,dental,sensitive-teeth,tooth-/-teeth — "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
