I was diagnosed with gum disease, receeding gums by my dentist, I used 10 drops of oregano under my tongue, let it set til I had good saliva built up, then swished it aroung my mouth, used my tongue to rub it on my gums & swallow it, every morning & guess what, went to my densist 6mo. Later & he was amazed. I now do this every morning, & for some reason---i do not get ill near as often either. Amazing!!
