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.

On April 22, my best friend's 7 month old munchkin kitten suddenly took ill. We were outside gardening, by the time we came in it was awful to look at him!

He was walking around 'crooked' and could not lift his head, he was not eating or drinking at all... looked almost like his neck was broken and just bobbled around or maybe like he had a stroke - we just didn't know. He couldn't even lay down normal... it was so sad!

Well, we rushed him to the vet. The vet told Sharon he thought it was a virus attacking his brain or inner ears but without some very expensive blood work he would not know for sure. My friend, being on a fixed income could not afford $300 or more for these tests.

The vet advised her not to even waste her money because he felt it was just too late and gave her an antibiotic and sent her home. The vet said, "Just make life comfortable for him." One friend told her she was 'cruel' for not having Bailey put down!!

On the drive home, I said to my friend, "Baloney! If it really is a virus , I have oils for that so don't worry!!" I got my essential oils reference book, looked up Bailey's problems (digesting his food, virus, maybe a bacteria) and picked oils and prayed.

I choose the Thieves, DiGize and Melrose oil blends. I put about 3-4 drops of each oil in a cup and then added about 20 drops of V-6. I told my friend to put the mixture on his paws at least 3x a day.

In 3 days he was eating... in 4 days his appetite was completely back and he was eating and drinking all alone plus he was now holding his head up high and not walking crooked any longer! By day 5... he was running and jumping back up on the furniture no longer hiding away in his pet taxi! By day 7, he was completely back to normal.

On May 5, she took Bailey back for a check-up and the vet almost fell over when he walked into the exam room and saw him. He asked my friend, "What have you been giving him?"

He KNEW it was NOT the antibiotic that saved him! She told him my friend has these therapeutic oils... Now the vet wants me to bring him information as he is so blown away by Bailey's change in such a short period of time.

Oh, and the best part... for the first time since she has had Bailey, he has finally gained weight... 9 oz during that 10 day period of time! Something he has NEVER done and the vet was always concerned about it!

The vet told Sharon, "Don't stop whatever you are doing!"

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: virus — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
2.Associated topics: virus — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: infection — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
4.Associated topics: infection — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
5.Associated topics: spine — "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
6.Associated topics: infection — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
7.Associated topics: infection — "14 plant essential oils -- anise (Pimpinella anisum), bay leaves (Laurus nobilis), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), hop (Humulus lupulus), Istanbul oregano (Origanum vulgare subsp. hirtum), Izmir oregano (Origanum onites), mint (Mentha piperita), myrtus (Myrtus communis), orange peel (Citrus sinensis), sage (Salvia officinalis), thyme (Thymbra spicata), and Turkish oregano (Origanum minutiflorum) -- were related to inhibition of 10 bacteria (Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca)."Link
8.Associated topics: infection — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
