Ok.. so I had this horrible tooth abscess. I looked like a chipmunk, couldn't close my mouth and was drooling..I mean, my face was horribly swollen and the root thingie was the size of a small grape. Got the picture? So I trundle off to the natural foods store to get stuff being that it is the weekend and as we all know, nothing ever happens any other time... ever! I ended up with some Oil of Oregano. I broke open the gelcap and squirted the oil onto half a cotton ball and winced as I jammed it up into the sore spot. Three hours and three capsules later: my face is normal (for the most part) and the grape lump in my jaw is now FLAT again!~!!!!!! I have had lots of abscesses over the years and have tried many things from tea bags to charcoal and garlic shoved up there.. nothing has ever worked so fast or so well! Just thought I would share.
