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 was at a pet show when I saw the Young Living Independent Distributor booth. I was at the show just for something to do, not really looking for anything to buy. My son said he was thirsty so I told him to ask for a free sample of the water at the booth. The water had different flavors of oils in it. Once he finished we walked on, but something told me to go back and ask about the products. This was a strong feeling so I listened to it.

The distributor said I should try Lavender oil for my dog's and son's ear infection. I had never used any oils or any kind of natural medicine and was raised to not believe in those things. I decided to purchase the Lavender and give it a try.

I just started applying the oil on my dog's ears, twice daily, when my cat burned her head. She is ten years old and likes to sleep next to the space heater in the bathroom during the colder months. Apparently she feel asleep with her head against the heater. She had a quarter size burn between her ear and eye. It was bright red and raw just like someone rubbed it with a cheese grater.

I applied a drop of Lavender oil, neat, to the burn twice daily. Within a week the burn cleared up without any scab forming or scarring. Within a few weeks the hair had grown back. In addition, she seemed more outgoing and friendly than in the past.

My dog's ear infection also cleared up in about a week's time.

Since then I have used many more Young Living products and they continue to amaze me.
