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.

I have always had issues with canker sores and have tried many remedies. Typically they get large and painful and last for several days. I read a testimonial on this website that recommended using Thieves on the sores. It worked! It greatly reduces the pain from the sores, and they heal much more quickly.

I use a Q-tip for application. On one end I put two drops of Thieves. With the other end, I gently dry the sore. Then I hold the Thieves end of the Q-tip on the sore for several seconds. For me the pain is gone almost immediately! The area even feels slightly numb.

I know that in the big picture of life, canker sores aren't a big deal. But they have been painful enough for me to ruin my day. I am so thankful that I can do something about them!
