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.


My friends Pomeranian dog started chewing her front leg. It got so bad that it chewed the leg right to the bone. The veterinarian suggested amputation of the leg. My friend wanted to try having the dog wear a "cone" and use antibiotic ointment on the affected leg. She did this for a couple of weeks and the leg started to heal. As soon as she took the cone off, the dog started to chew on her leg again.

I suggested to her that she try Animal Scents Ointment and gave her a sample from my jar. A couple of weeks went by and I had forgotten all about giving her the ointment. When I saw her next she thanked me very much... the dog was now without the cone, wasn't chewing on its leg and hair was growing back in to the affected area... She has now purchased her own jar of Animal Scents Ointment :)

Also, we sent one of our horses away for training. After the first day of training, the cinch had caused a 2 inch gall (sore). It took the hide off her and looked incredibly painful. We took her out of training and took her home to heal (these sores usually take a long time to heal). We applied Animal Scents Ointment each day. The wound never scabbed and by day three, hair was growing back. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it!!!!

We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link

One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
