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 had a broken tooth pulled and an implant installed in the slot so I could get a partial redone. I guess I got a bit of infection in it because the soreness continued longer than I felt it should have.

I decided that just in case it was infected -- and I did not want another round of antibiotics -- I would start using Thieves essential oil blend on the spot. Within a couple of days the tenderness started going away and kept improving.

My appointment for my followup came, and I explained to the dentist what had happened. He then did some probing and took an x-ray. He found that indeed there had been an infection. He also told me that they would not have known, had I not told them, because the tissue around the implant looked really good and normal.

The dentist had to open up the spot, clean out in the bone, and do another bone graft. He did give me another antibiotic, but, instead of rinsing with a prescription oral rinse, he told me to continue using my Thieves oil.
