Oil of Oregano (Oreganum Vulgare)- a perfect track record for handling multiple abscesses in my case. I had an emergency situation where I couldn't get in to a dentist and had an extremely painful abscess. It was swollen to the point of rupturing, so it was very painful. I had earlier picked up a bottle of the oil (don't get it confused with extract!). I knew of the benefits of the stuff for other ailments, so out of desperation, I tried it.

The bottle will likely warn you to cut the stuff by one drop to twenty or a tablespoon, etc., before applying it to anything. It's that potent. I, however, did not. Took a cotton swab and tore off most of the cotton on one end. Added one drop of oregano oil to the prepared end and gently swabbed the area. Doing so, I got some on my lips and tongue and I did experience a significant burning sensation, so consider yourself warned. Interestingly, it doesn't burn your gums themselves. But the pain was nothing compared to my abscess. Three applications and 24 hours later, the abscess was completely HEALED. Not just feeling better. GONE.

I have since used this therapy multiple times on this recurring abscess. What?!? You said it was GONE! Well, it was. But I haven't had the tooth fixed yet. So once every few months or so, I can feel it begin to come back. I do the same thing and voila, it's better.

Actually, the abscesses ONLY come back if I stop my maintenance routine. I cut the the Oil of Oregano by 1/5th with organic olive oil. After brushing in the morning and evening, I take a second soft bristled toothbrush and add 2-3 drops of this solution and gently work it into my gum line, where the nasties like to hang out. It's only when I get off this routine that I ever have any issues. My gums look healthier too, after doing this for a while.

This remedy has saved me lots of pain, time and money. Which reminds me ... the oil itself isn't cheap. Expect to pay around $30USD for a few ounces. But you use so little it lasts quite a long time. I've been using it for three years and I'm on my third bottle.

Hope this helps. I feel your pain.
