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.

Whatever you call them -- mouth ulcers or canker sores -- Peppermint essential oil will zap them! After having them more often in the last ten years or so, somehow I got the idea to put Peppermint oil on each sore. It tastes good, and a drop or two or just a bit on my finger can just about wipe it out before I experience any real discomfort.

Whenever you sense that one will erupt (you know that tingly kind of sensation that starts), immediately rub with the Peppermint essential oil. Then touch a little more to that area often throughout the day for several days until you know the episode has passed.

Also, placing a drop of Peppermint oil in a tiny bit of warm water in a cup and swishing it around in your mouth will help if you can't quite tell where the sore is located. Then you could actually just swallow the water since it's beneficial for your digestion and tastes so good!

I now carry the Peppermint essential oil in my purse like the lifesaver it is since you never know when!
