Can Essential Oils Support Gum Health?

After having heard Dr. Steuer, DDS  and Dr. Harding, DDS speak about how they use therapeutic grade essential oils in their patient case studies, we started using various essential oil products in our family to support gum health. Based on the research by Dr. Steuer and Dr. Harding we started using an essential oil blend called the protective blend which consists of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary essential oils by adding one to two drops to a shot glass of warm water and swishing the mouth for a minute. For special areas of concern, rubbing a drop directly onto the affected area was soothing and supporting gum health. In addition we switched to a great toothpaste which contains that same essential oil blend and started taking a supplement which supports cellular health, contains all necessary vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, and essential oils.  We now enjoy healthy gums in our family!
