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.

About five years ago I had a root canal treatment done. After the surgery there was always a dull ache in my jaw.

After 12 months I informed the dentist, who took x-rays and was alarmed at the infection visible on the x-ray. He referred me to a dental surgeon who then operated to remove part of the infected root.

Twelve months later the pain returned and there was infection visible on a dental x-ray. Another surgery operation was performed to remove the top half of the same infected root. The infection remained.

Ten months ago I decided to attempt to cure myself using natural methods. I used vegetable juices and essential oils. Every day, twice a day, for six months I drank 300-400ml of an antiobiotic vegetable juice consisting of celery, apple, kale, red onion and garlic. As well as often as I could I applied 2-3 drops of Thieves directly on the skin of my jaw line (at the location of the infection). When I was home I would rub on the Thieves as much as every hour. I also used Thieves toothpaste religiously twice a day. Everyday I diffused Thieves in my home.

Ten months later I am usually pain free. Sometimes I feel a small twang of slight pain in my jaw and I simply apply the Thieves again to my jaw line. The pain immediately subsides.

Today I continue to juice vegetable juices for good health but have ceased the special antibiotic recipe. I continue to use Thieves and other essential oils. Using essential oils has changed my life and improved my overall health and well-being.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: diet — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
2.Associated topics: dental,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
3.Associated topics: dental,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
4.Associated topics: diet — "Co-administration of the lime essential oil and ketotifen caused significant suppression in gaining weight, as well as decreased body weights of mice. The data obtained in this study suggested that lime essential oil plays an important role in weight loss and could be useful in the treatment of drug-induced obesity and related diseases."Link
