Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. 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. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

In June 2013, I was presented with a kitten, barely weaned, who was found dragging herself through a field. Her front legs worked fine, but everything behind them did not work at all.

Quick X-rays showed a broken back. The veterinarian gave us five vials with small amounts of painkillers to give to her orally. The office staff probably expected to see the kitten back very soon in order to have her put down.

I took her basically as an experiment.... Let's see what these essential oils can do!

Knowing that cats are more sensitive than people or dogs, I started out diluting essential oils with V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex. I put a drop of that on a Q-tip first and then put as small of a dab of essential oil as I could manage from each bottle that I used, using a separate Q-tip for each essential oil.

I dabbed up and down her spine, down her back legs, and down her tail, praying for everything to come into alignment.

After about two days of this, I decided to just use the essential oils straight. We used Sandalwood, Helichrysum, Frankincense, and Copaiba regularly.

And as led by the Lord, I would include others, such as Marjoram, Basil, Cypress, and Valor (all Raindrop Technique oils), as well as Trauma Life and SARA. I think we even used small amounts of PanAway and Peppermint.

After two days she seemed like she was not in any more discomfort, as she was hanging from the top of the large cage we had her in, wanting to get out! So I gave her free range in the bathroom first and then eventually the whole house.

I noticed that she was able to keep herself clean and fluffy only from her head to her front legs. But as the days went by, I noticed her fluffiness moving a little further down her body until she was able to get to her tail.

Soon after, we noticed a little wiggle in her upper torso. That too began to move down her body to her hips, then the upper legs, and finally her lower legs.

Sometime in the middle of all this, her tail started to move once in a while. I began to "help" her walk by moving her back legs while she moved her front ones, and I would stand her up at the food bowl whenever I saw her there.

She soon figured out how to back herself up to a standing position while leaning against one of the cat scratching toys. She loved to play and got stronger and stronger every day, until finally, after only 3 months, she was jumping up on the furniture and chasing after our other cats!

She is not 100%. Her back legs are not quite aligned like they should be, so she cannot jump as high as the other kitties. But she is getting around just fine, with no discomfort, even now in 2015.
