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.

I am fanatical about my oral health and always get kudos from my dentist when I go in for my cleanings. So when my hygienist asked me what had changed in my life, I got really nervous! I have been on medication that suppresses my immune system (hopefully oils will change that!), and my gums were very sensitive and bleeding... a lot! I had noticed that when I would eat certain foods that my mouth would burn.

At that point, my dentist recommended three under-the-gum cleanings and a medicinal mouthwash. At the end of my cleanings (which took 3 months), there was very little improvement. He conceded that it had to be my meds because there was ZERO plaque on my teeth.

A friend had given me Thieves essential oil for another issue, so I thought that I would start swishing with it. Every night I put just a little bit of water in a glass with 2 to 3 drops of Thieves oil and swished after I brushed.

I am sure you can guess... my next dentist visit was a total shocker for my dentist and hygienist. They couldn't believe how good my mouth looked -- and no bleeding and no burning when I would eat. The hygienist even said, "You have to come see her! She is NOT the same patient that is in the notes!"

Now that I am healed, I swish about 2 times a week just to keep whatever it was at bay. I am SO grateful to have found Thieves oil when I did, as I am sure I would still be battling the gum issues without it!
