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.

While sledding on about 4 inches of frozen sleet and snow, my son fell and hit his mouth hard. He did not bust anything, and no teeth appeared to be injured.

The next morning, however, his top gum was very swollen, almost covering his top front and side teeth. The gum was bruised to a deep reddish purple. It looked horrible, and it was very uncomfortable for him.

It was suggested to me that I rub a drop of Frankincense on his gum. So I diluted a drop with coconut oil to cut the taste and rubbed it around his teeth. He didn't care for the taste, but he was a trooper.

In less than 20 minutes the swelling had reduced significantly. An hour later his gum was completely back to normal. It was amazing!

Now I use Frankincense for all sorts of bruises and minor injuries. I even use it on acne bumps for my older son, and it does a wonderful job in taking the swelling and discoloration down. I love my oils!
