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.

My 9 pound dog developed a large blood blister on her ear (Aural Hematoma).

I took her to the vet and they told me she would need immediate surgery to lance the wound in a certain way and then about 50 stitches to "quilt" the ear so that the blood flow would not return there. It was estimated to be $750 and require a two week recovery period.

When I inquired about other less invasive options as a starting point, the reply was, "there is nothing else that can be done, this is the only option for this problem".

I declined the surgery and researched my options with essential oils. I ordered some Helichrysum oil. I applied 1 drop to the hematoma on her ear twice a day for three days. Then I took some photos. The before and after pics are incredible.

I continued to apply for another 3 days to be safe that it was fully gone. So, 6 days, 12 drops total and you really can't even tell that there was any problem there unless you closely compare one ear to another. The one affected ear still has a small area that is slightly puffier - maybe the size of a dime, but does not seem to bother the dog and isn't red or swollen looking.

Helichrysum oil is one of the pricier ones, but was certainly a LOT cheaper than the surgery. Since I only used 12 drops, I get to save the rest of the bottle for my first aid kit 😃

My pup is happy and I didn't have to put her through a horrible surgery and recovery period.
