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 kitten, Sissy, was spayed on Tuesday. The vet put stitches under the skin and glued the incision closed, so there were no stitches to take out later.

That night, according to the vet, I could feed Sissy a small amount of food. Together in a shot glass, I opened a capsule of Sulfurzyme and a capsule of Life 5 (to replace Sissy's flora) and mixed them together. I sprinkled a tiny pinch of the mixture and mixed it with mackerel out of the can. The smellier the fish the less detection of the Sulfurzyme.

She gobbled it right up. A couple hours later, I fed her a good grade of non-cereal kitten food with water to soften the food. She literally devoured all of the food both times. The mixture was administered only once a day until gone.

The day after Sissy's surgery I applied a 40:1 ratio of 40 drops extra virgin olive oil to 1 drop Frankincense, directly on top of her incision, being careful not to apply pressure. Holding on to her and petting her for approximately 10 seconds I mashed the Animal Scents Ointment so it was soft on my finger.

I softly applied the Animal Scents Ointment directly over the incision on top of the Frankincense and let her go. The ointment didn't stay on her long, because she almost immediately went to the other side of the room and licked it off.

I performed this routine morning and night for 5 days. By the 5th day, Sissy was used to the routine and didn't fight me anymore and she quit licking the ointment off too. This helped her pain tremendously. I knew this because shortly after I applied the ointment she started playing. Before the application she wasn't walking too good and she was crying.

By the 2nd day she was running and jumping, in the sun room, to my horror but to her delight. She's doing fine and playing in the yard with her brother, Shadow.

Thank goodness for the little creatures in our lives that keep us company. And thank God for the plants and Gary Young's diligence with developing essential oils.

2.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
3.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "Topical 5% tea tree oil is an effective treatment for mild to moderate acne vulgaris.... Tea tree oil has broad-spectrum antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity in vitro. These properties have formed the basis of its use in the treatment of a range of superficial dermatoses such as cuts, insect bites, boils, and dermatophytosis [ringworm]."Link
4.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. 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
5.Associated topics: cut-/-laceration-/-incision — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
