If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions.

My friend's beautiful collie had been having allergic reactions (according to her vet) and a very painful, itchy rash since March. When I found out about it in August, the condition was so bad that the dog was chewing bloody holes into her skin because of the itch.
My friend was actually considering putting her collie down to stop her suffering. The veterinarian did not have any recommendations except to get more expensive tests and to take the dog to a specialist.
I said, "Wait, just let me try my essential oils before you make that decision." My friend agreed.
I went over that very day, and we applied a weak solution of Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living. We let it "soak" on the dog for 20-30 minutes and then rinsed it out. The dilution was one capful to a gallon of water.
Next I made a solution of about 16 ounces of water with the following essential oils added:
10 drops Lavender
10 drops Purification blend
10 drops Lemongrass
10 drops Melrose blend
I told my friend to shake the spray bottle and then spray the large, bright-red patches of rash that were all over the dog. Then I instructed her to put some of this solution on a cotton ball and wipe the itchy, red patches inside the dog's ears.
I also gave my friend a little NingXia Red wolfberry juice drink containing other essential oils and suggested a tablespoon a day of that (the amount that I give my cat at home). Additionally I suggested a tablespoon per day of coconut oil (which she already had on hand) and a small capsule of Oregano essential oil per day.
THE NEXT DAY the dog's skin looked a normal color again, and the itching had stopped! I checked back with my friend after a couple of days, then a week or so, and finally a month later... and the itching had not returned!
