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 have made a recent discovery that I hope is useful for other finicky cats. Scarlet, my 19 yr old cat had recently begun eating less, drinking more water, losing weight and her appearance was unthrifty. I knew she would not take any meds or oils in her food. I used Juniper Essential oil on her back a few times but that did not seem to do the trick for her.

And then inspiration came after a lot of prayers. I applied a 1/4 dropper of K & B Tincture along her back by putting the tincture on my hand, then I wiped it down her back. She was not offended, and after a few moments walked off taking it in, contemplating how it felt. After only a few mornings of applying the K & B Tincture topically to her back, she perked up, slowly began to eat more food, and was drinking slightly less water.

After 10 days, her coat improved also. She has continued on this upward swing, feeling better and heading in a direction that we both like!

I will continue using this for awhile monitoring how she is doing. If she continues to improve to a better level of functioning and stabilizes, I will decrease the amount and frequency of K & B Tincture and will use as needed.

I am so pleased that I realized that K & B Tincture can be effective by applying topically!

Supporting Scientific Study
kidneys - "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
