Kicking Kankers to the Kurb

So, I was sitting at a girlfriend’s house, sipping hot cocoa and chatting when all of a

canker sore
Cankers are painful mouth ulcers

sudden, a ferocious canker sore erupted inside my lower lip. I have no words to describe it. One moment I had a happy mouth. The next moment, I was biting my lip in agony. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it before! And I’m not really certain what triggered it- perhaps the cocoa? Or something on the mug? I haven’t had a canker sore since college, and (trust me) that was a looooooooong time ago. So canker sores are not something I deal with regularly.


eodr1Upon returning home, I immediately ran to Big Blue (my essential oils Bible) and looked up the best remedy to help my searing lip. But wouldn’t you know it, I had just lent the oils it recommended to a friend. Now what could I do?

Never fear, Big Blue always has a back up plan. This time it called for a blend called Purification (it comes in the starter kit)

Purification bottleOne thing you must understand. Up to this point, although I have an obsession with essential oils and have gathered a small collection, I certainly do NOT know everything there is to know about each oil. My only experience with Purification thus far had been as a freshener in my laundry and a room deodorizer. Yummmmmmm, it smells soooooo good! But Purification as medicine? I simply had never tried.

So I read in Big Blue about this blend, and this is what it told me. The blend of oils in Purification- Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Melaluca (tea tree oil) Lavendin and Myrtle- have powerful therapeutic properties. Basically, Purification is wonderful for promoting healing in wounds and cuts. Of all those ingredients,Lavendin and Melaluca, are know for encouraging a strong  immuno-response and they help promote tissue regeneration. I can’t think of anything better to use! So I gave it a whirl.

I put a dab on my fingertip and held it on my lip for about thirty seconds. I could feel the stimulating sizzle of cells springing into action (Nice alliteration, electric celleh?) Maybe I’m a bit odd, but although it stung ever so slightly, it was a positive, healing sensation. The energized cells felt a bit like this electric globe. I repeated this “purification procedure” again before bed, and when I woke up in the morning, the surface of the ulcer had totally healed over. Amazing! I remember those college days when nasty (beer-induced) canker sores disrupted my life for days, if not weeks! Commercially available tubes of (insert brand name here) did virtually nothing to help heal my canker (although it did numb the pain) but essential oils Kicked this Kanker in less than 24 hours. UNBELIEVABLE!

I’m so excited to discover more about this versatile oil that I have long neglected. In fact, I will probably put it in my emergency care kit because it works SO WELL.
