Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

One of my horses started having weeping eyes all the time, year round. The vet figured allergies and doctored accordingly. No improvement.

I then researched herbs, essential oils, talked to anyone that would listen, and started trying my oils. What I came up with, that finally worked, was to use Young Living's Lavender lotion with 2 drops of the RC and Purification blends and diluted all of that with a bit of massage oil.

In the summer he usually ended up with conjunctivitis due to the flies feeding on his weeping eyes. I would gently wash his eye area, applied the salve and face mask if the flies were really bad, and thereafter did not have one problem with the flies or infection.

His eyes stopped weeping as long as I used the salve every day. I continue to use the salve every day, even in the winter. Not sure what is causing it. The vet has done all he can so I will continue with this protocol since it works so well.
