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.

My oldest son had a tooth extracted today in preparation for his braces. We were told by the dentist that since it was a pretty long tooth, he would probably experience quite a bit of pain after the local anesthesia wore off. He recommended Tylenol or Ibuprofen every 4 hours.

Well, here we are 8+ hours later and he has used NO OTC pain meds. As soon as we got home, I applied Wintergreen, Helichrysum, and Copaiba to his jawline (his face was still numb at this time.). Then we applied the oils, along his jawline once every hour. His numbness lasted about 2 hours. He has had NO pain the entire time. In fact, he just ate pizza (albeit chewed on the other side of his mouth)!

We have started to space the oils every 2 hours. I will add some Valor tonight and maybe Peace & Calming. I love, love, love the fact that we were able to tackle this "expected" pain with the oils. I'll also add that the oils, even applied to the outside of the jawline, stopped the bleeding right away.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.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
2.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
