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.
A tick had attached itself to the chin of my poor cat. I had tried specific tick products from the pet shop, but nothing seemed to get rid of it. I just didn't have the right "tool" to try to detach the tick myself.
Initially I put some Purification essential oil blend directly onto the tick. It seemed to harden overnight but was still very much embedded.
Next I applied a tiny drop of Oregano essential oil. (Anyone who tries this should be very careful, as Oregano essential oil is a very, very hot oil.) Within 12 hours the tick had dropped off of my cat and was dead.
