Hustle #2 with Disclaimer
Disclaimer is right here up in front of the line, I am what DoTerra calls a Wellness Advocate and this is my Hustle #2. We mainly use essential oils for ourselves and I advise on what has worked for US here at home. I’m not a DR., I’ve had no training in essential oils except what I research for myself. Using DoTerra essential oils is for us to live a better healthier life at home instead of putting chemicals into our bodies or our environment.
Moving along, with my story. I have baby teeth, yes I’m a grown woman and have baby teeth, it’s genetics, I have one on either side of my bottom teeth. I do not have adult teeth beneath them. My brother has baby teeth and so does, I mean, so did my mom.
I go to the dentist regularly, all was good and fine until I started teaching Dublin to floss. Mind you I didn’t floss regularly like I should. You know laziness, we all lie on the dentist chair what’s wrong with this little lie. Well, something happened while flossing that my gum would hurt. Hurt became uncomfortable and then I just couldn’t chew on that side. WTH! I would treated it with doTERRA Clove essential oil to numb it or maybe doTERRA On Guard essential oil but it was just uncomfortable. When swelling would go down and I would try to eat on that side, it would swell up again. Annoying!
I made an appointment with the dentist, new dentist always means new x-rays. Lo-and-behold, I was told that this tooth had to come out because the root was almost gone. “The tooth has served you well for all these years, you need a bridge”, says the dentist. Say what? I previous dentist that I LOVED once told me “if the tooth last past 35 years old you’ll have it forever”. Ok, I believe him and I would like to keep my tooth please.
Do you know what a bridge is and what they do and how much it cost? They want to ruin two side teeth to put a bridge where my baby tooth was. So I’ll have 3 ruined teeth! uh no. The other route is a post, drill a hole where the root was and screw a new one in. This sounds better but the cost! I’ve looked up dentists in Tijuana Mexico and found someone with lots of Yelp reviews and high star ratings but I’m still not giving up on this tooth!
Essential oils trial 2
I dug around a bit more and found that Frankincense essential oil would help. It did, the swelling would go down, the hurting stopped but if I tried to eat on that side it would start all over again and that stuff is pretty bad tasting. I kept researching and found that Myrrh essential oil has been the cure all for centuries and was even one of the gifts when Jesus was born. Winner, winner. I tried that and within days the pain and swelling was gone and could eat again without a problem or the re-occurrence of the problem. Now lets see if my gum under the tooth is healed on next visit.
