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.

Magic is a large 14 year old cat. I use Peppermint on her, which includes 5-6 drops per application. They recommend 1-2 drops for small animals like cats. It has taken 5-6 drops for her to stop perpetually licking her side. Her hair is starting to grow back in.

Whatever the digestive challenge is, it appears to lets off when she gets lots of Peppermint to assist her system. It's a cousin to Catnip, both from the mint family, so it's natural... so to speak.

I'm also now using Wintergreen on her sore legs (also on 16 year old Tatter's arthritic back). I seem to be going through a bottle a month, 250 drops, on both of them. It's seems to help, sometimes she's a bit ambivalent about it. She's striding with more ease so that's the scoop here.

Thank God for these wonderful oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: back-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: arthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
3.Associated topics: arthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
