Warning

I just wanted to remind people to follow the directions and make sure to dilute this product so that you do not make the mistake that I made.

I had a slight pain in my tooth and thought that gargling with some GFSE would make me feel better. I placed about 15 drops into some water and gargled without incident.

Then I got the bright idea to place a few drops directly onto the tooth. What a mistake!! The undiluted drops quickly made my mouth water, and then the mixture of drops and saliva kind of made its way under my tongue. I spit it out, but the damage was already done. Within that few minutes I had managed to bascially give myself a chemical burn to the soft fleshy area under my tongue.

The pain was so bad that I cannot even describe it. It kind of felt as though I had chards of broken glass under my tongue. I felt miserable. Then the next day the area under my tongue was kind of swollen, and it felt like I had something stuck in my throat.

Needless to say, eating has been difficult. I'm sure that within a week or so I will feel better. The body has the amazing capacity to heal itself even after we do unwise things to it.

GFSE is great, but make sure that you always dilute it. I don't want anyone else messing up their mouth the way that I did.
