Canker Sores!

15ml_onguardHave you ever had a canker sore so bad that even the thought of drinking a glass of water hurts?  I have.  I remember my wedding day, I woke up with about 7 cankers along my lower lip.  Talk about "wedding day jitters".  Now it seems I've passed this down to my children.

My son wouldn't eat dinner a couple nights ago.  I asked him what was wrong.  He showed me his lip and sure enough he had a canker sore.  I decided to use him as a guinea pig.  I put some doTERRA essential oil on it. Just a drop of  "On Guard".   He said that it stung a little bit.  The next morning I asked how he was, he stated that he felt a bit better.  The next night I applied one more drop of "On Guard".  This morning it was as if he never had the canker sore. 

I am sold.  One little dab of "On Guard" doTERRA essential oil, sure beats a mouth full of baking soda.  (my old remedy).  I'll keep it handy for my sons wedding, when the both of us wake up with "wedding day jitters."

  1. Do you happen to know what causes canker sores? I have one right now and have been using peppermint, helichrysum, melaleuca and clove to help get rid of it. It didn't really know what it was as first, but now I will try the on guard - maybe i'll be able to eat something without wincing in pain. thank you!
