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.

The essential oils are as much a part of my everyday life and waking up each day. Of the many oils I have and have been using for about 15 years I will explain my use of Clove and Thieves.

Three years ago I had an excruciating toothache; the whole left side of my face was swollen because of the infection. I was away from home and went to a random dentist who gave me a prescription for an antibiotic and an appointment to go back and have the tooth removed (once the infection was gone).

I did neither, I don't like taking any medications. I remember thinking that instead of getting the antibiotic I would read one of my many essential oil books; which led me to what I already had, Cloves and the Thieves oil blend.

I used both constantly and within 2 days no more infection and by the way Cloves is good for the immediate pain. I did not go back to the dentist, I still have my tooth and it's has not given me any more problems.

I make it a habit to alternate the Cloves and Thieves morning and night by adding a few drops of Clove on my toothpaste and in the evening I add a few drops of Thieves.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: abscessed-tooth,tooth-/-teeth,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,tooth-/-teeth,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
