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.

As a child I would get tonsil stones a couple times a year. It wasn't a huge concern. I had a round of Scarlet Fever four years ago and afterwards I had nonstop tonsil stones. Some were quite large. I knew when new stones formed because my tonsils would begin to swell and my breath would be foul. I would manually dig the stones out. The skin around the tonsils is very tender and many times I would scratch it and infection would set in. It was a vicious cycle.

The only sure cure is removal of the tonsils. I purchased products that claimed to stop the problem but nothing prevented the stones from forming. These products all contain fluoride. My thyroid is sluggish so I had to weigh the effects of the fluoride against the nuisance of the tonsil stones. The thyroid won.

Late last year I read a testimony on here where someone was putting a drop of Thieves on their tooth brush every day to prevent getting sick. Everyone around me was ill so I began doing this once and sometimes twice a day. After brushing with Thieves toothpaste, I would rinse my brush, add a drop of Thieves EO and brush every surface of my mouth--especially the area around my tonsils. This wasn't easy because I have a strong gag reflex and I was using Thieves neat without diluting.

I stopped using it once the cold season passed and soon had my first tonsil stone in months. I realized it must be the Thieves working. I tried brushing the area with just the toothpaste and then following with the mouthwash and spray. That didn't prevent the stones. Once I added the Thieves oil back into my routine, the stones did not come back. I have been stone free for six months now. Thank God for the Thieves oil blend!

throat - "Streptococcus pyogenes [strep] plays an important role in the pathogenesis of tonsillitis.... [T]hyme, cinnamon, lemongrass, tea tree, lavender, oregano, clove, palmarosa, or cajeput [melaleuca] EOs [essential oils] are known to be active against Streptococcus pyogenes, while oregano, basil, mint [peppermint], rosemary, and lavender EOs are known to inhibit another Gram-positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus [staph].... We showed that cinnamon presented the higher activity against S. pyogenes compared to the other EOs tested.... 14 [essential oils] showed antibacterial activity against Streptococcus pyogenes.... Among them Cinnamomum verum [cinnamon bark], Cymbopogon citratus [Xiang Mao], Thymus vulgaris CT thymol [thyme], Origanum compactum [oregano], and Satureja montana [Mountain Savory] essential oils exhibited significant antibacterial activity. The in vitro results reported here suggest that, for patients suffering from bacterial throat infections, if aromatherapy is used, these essential oils, considered as potential antimicrobial agents, should be preferred."Link
