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.

I have a Shih Tzu who has a severe allergy with fleas. We battled and battled last summer, which was prior to our involvement in Young Living, and nothing helped. We treated the yard and even tried using medicated flea sprays/shampoo and those only caused her to break out more. She literally had no hair left by the end of the summer and was absolutely miserable. She would scratch and bite until she was bloody and had sores everywhere. Nothing we tried seemed to help her. Once summer passed, we had no more issues.

Recently, she started itching and scratching again. I ordered the Animal Scents line of shampoo, ointment, Mendwell, Puriclean, and Infectaway. I started with a short haircut so I could easily access the skin and then she got a bath with the Lavender Shampoo (which smells AMAZING by the way). I actually let her soak with the shampoo on her skin while I bathed her partner in crime.

I mixed 15 drops of each (Mendwell, Puriclean, and Infectaway blends) in a small spray bottle with distilled water and I added about a teaspoon of Vitamin E oil. Once she was dry, I sprayed this on her and rubbed it in. I let it dry for a little bit and then applied the Animal Scents Ointment to all of her hotspot areas.

By the next morning, she had no redness or sores! It was incredible. Now she still itches but I keep the spray close by and just give her a little spritz anytime I see her start to bite/scratch at an area. So far, we haven't had any real issues with the hotspots so long as we keep a close eye on her.

In the mornings, I spray her down and rub in the oil mixture. Once she is dry, I apply the ointment to all of the areas that I know she has been scratching at. I also do this at night before we go to bed. It has made our home life SOOOO much better and has made our sweet 4-legged friend so much more comfortable!

Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
