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 miniature pinscher who has been having seizures since she was about 1.5 years old. A naturopathic vet said it was probably from overdosing on vaccines.

I would use Rescue Remedy on her but sometimes it would just go on and on. Once she had rolling bouts for over an hour before easing off.

I had heard something about Peppermint and seizures. Peppermint is definitely not her favorite oil. She will usually flip out after smelling it. Anyway one day she was in the middle of some pretty strong seizures so I pulled out the Peppermint, which I rubbed on her ears tips, the top of her head and down her spine.

I also put a couple of drops of Peace & Calming on her tummy. With in a couple of minutes the vibrating stopped and her muscles unlocked. Within 5-10 minutes she was up and moving.

Usually after a bout she loses the use of her back legs for awhile and sleeps a lot. I have done this several times with her, using just Peppermint or Peppermint and Lavender which always works.

She will even smell and lick my fingers just after I put the oil on her. Once it's all over though, don't get near her with the Peppermint cause she'll act like a nut case, rolling, sneezing and snorting like I've tried to poison her.
