Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Recently, one of my molars which previously had had a root canal treatment was diagnosed as having a ruptured root and an infection in the gum. In fact, when the oral surgeon evaluated the tooth in July, 2012, pus oozed out from the gum area.

Needless to say, I was concerned about this development as I only use non-flouride toothpastes such as those from Young Living Essential Oils. Given my age, 60, I accepted that it was finally time for this tooth to go and scheduled the extraction for September, the earliest appointment that worked with my schedule.

Meanwhile, I had to deal with the infected tooth and gum area so I started rubbing Thieves essential oil blend on the gum area twice a day and then rinsing my mouth with a little water. Within one day, the area started to feel better and within two days, my gum above the infected tooth was no longer puffy! I continued to use Thieves a few times a week to keep the area healed.

I just had the tooth extracted two days ago and have not experienced hardly any discomfort even the first day. I was told that the area could become more painful and swollen on the third or fourth day after the procedure, but this has not occurred! I attribute this speedy recovery to my use of Thieves which must have kept the external and internal gum area free from all bacteria.

I continue to swish a couple of drops of Thieves in water around my mouth to help the extracted area continue to heal properly. I am so grateful to have these oils in my life!
