Buyer beware.

I was on a bike ride,when all of a sudden I heard screaming, yelling, then came upon what had been a dog attack. A large golden retriever had bitten a smaller bulldog.

The bulldog had 3 puncture wounds and was gushing blood from his inner left front leg. I flew 5 blocks back home on my bike, grabbed my Helichrysum, Myrrh, Lavender and Frankincense oils and flew back fast as I could.

The owner had been applying pressure, we got a rag, wiped off the blood that had pooled and I started working with the oils.

I applied Helichrysum, about 6 drops right into the largest puncture wound. The bleeding stopped instantly in front of our eyes. I applied Helichrysum to the other 2 minor wounds, bleeding stopped on contact. I was amazed to see it in action first hand after hearing so many testimonials.

Throughout the dog was very calm, let me come right in and work on her, as before I started working on her I checked in with her energetically, and she was very inviting, knew I was there to help and assist, and she liked that I was calming to her owner.

Her owner was the one who was the most freaking out from seeing her beloved pet gushing blood, and she thought it was a lot worse than it really was, with the blood gushing and the powerful emotions of being in a fight and having your animal hurting. I can understand the tenseness of the situation.

I applied Lavender, about 5-6 drops all over the general wound area to disinfect and calm both owner and animal, and Myrrh right into the wound for skin and tissue regeneration which has antiseptic and antibacterial effects. The blood pooled and a scab started forming almost immediately.

The dog then started to lick the wound naturally, and the blood started gushing again. I applied 2 more drops of Helichrysum and it stopped bleeding again.

I put 3 drops of Lavender oil in her hand, and had her breathe a few breaths, which immediately visibly and calmed her down, and she started talking with a lowered voice and with calmness.

I told her it was fine, that it was not as bad as she thought, showed her that the bleeding has stopped, and then just quietly walked away and let the animal cops make their report. I was only there about 5 minutes doing this work, then animal control showed up, because the owner called and reported this instance.

When I started to leave, the dog got really antsy, I looked her in the eye, told her I knew she was OK and in good hands, and she was cool with that.

This was a powerful experience, and I am so glad I was able to be there and in this service of helping animals and owners.
