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 Saturday evening, not long ago, my dog started showing unusual behaviour: hiding under furniture, not wanting to eat, drink or sleep, she yelped when I attempted to pick her up, she couldn't arch her back, and she barely had energy to walk. She appeared to be in a lot of pain.

It was the weekend and my veterinarian's office was closed. I started to research the various testimonials and discovered that Frankincense oil could be used on dogs too. So I placed a drop of high quality Frankincense on the palm of my hand, rubbed my hands together and rubbed her belly and chest with one hand, while rubbing her spine with the other. You don't want to mess around with any cheap oils when it comes to your pet.

Within half hour, she finally cuddled up in her bed. I did this every hour until I went to bed.

The next day, I continued to massage her with Frankincense every few hours. She started to walk normally again and finally ate some food.

On Monday morning I continued with the Frankincense and took her to the vet. She was still showing unusual signs but appeared in better spirits. The vet did the usual tests (urine, blood, examination and x-rays). She was there for 6 hours. He couldn't find anything, except some crystals in her urine and recommended a diet for her.

As soon as I picked her up, brought her to the car, I did one more dose of Frankincense and massage. By evening, she was back to her normal self.

Thank goodness!
