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.

Last week I had my last two wisdom teeth removed. I had the first two done a few months ago and was in a lot of pain with lots of swelling for about a week afterward. I also could not open my mouth wide enough to eat except with a baby spoon for 2 weeks and then still had to be careful for a week after that. I also took the prescribed antibiotics and it greatly increased the Systemic Candida yeast infection which I have struggled with for years. This time the surgeon told me that it would be more painful because he had to make a deeper incision to remove my bottom tooth.

This time around, I used a lot of essential oils instead of relying solely on painkillers. I woke up the first morning after surgery expecting to be in a lot of pain as the drugs I was taking ran out in the middle of the night. I was surprised to find that I had very little pain at all and significantly less swelling than I did last June.

I took 3 Ibuprofen (equal to one Motrin which is what was prescribed) every 6 hours the first two days, but after that I cut back to 1-2 or none at all depending on whether or not I needed it. I got my antibiotic prescription just in case, but I did not take them. In short, last time I felt drugged and exhausted the whole time, this time I felt great! I went in for a check-up and the dentist and his assistant were both very impressed!

These are the oils that I used:

PanAway essential oil blend- 2 drops topically 3-4 times per day or as needed
Clove- 2 drops topically after 2nd day
Lavender oil-2 drops topically 3-4 times or as needed
Nutmeg oil- 2 drops either topically or internally after 2nd day
Copaiba oil- 4 drops internally 3 times daily
Arnica 30C-(I got these from a health food store.) 2 tablets every 15 minutes for the first few hours, then 2 tablets every hour.

Frankincense oil- 4 drops internally 3 times daily
Oregano oil- 7 drops internally 3 times daily
Lemon oil- 3 drops internally 3 times daily

The 5th day my Thieves oil blend had arrived in the mail, so I started taking 12 drops of Thieves, 6 drops of Oregano and 2 drops of Frankincense in a capsule every 4 hours. I had experienced a little more pain after my Copaiba oil and PanAway ran out, but this helped a lot!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: antibiotic,candida — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
2.Associated topics: dental,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
3.Associated topics: candida — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
4.Associated topics: candida — "It is suggested that the in vivo effect of tea tree oil ointment in the therapy of fungal infections of the skin and mucous membranes as well as in the treatment of dandruff, a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis, may be at least partly due to an antifungal activity of tea tree oil."Link
5.Associated topics: dental,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
