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 large pony breaks out in the summer with oozing patches that are extremely itchy. Over the previous 3 summers that I have had her, I had tried many things like acupuncture, flax seed, chinese herbs, minerals, changing her diet off of any processed foods and support her metabolism with OB Formula. But she was still breaking out.

This summer after an early, sudden break out in June instead of August, I added the JuvaFlex oil blend in her food.

Within 24 hours, the oozing stopped and she stopped itching! I used the JuvaFlex for about 5 days in a row initially. The itchiness went away, her coat softened, the patches that had been oozing healed quickly with hair growing back!

I continued a maintenance dose of using JuvaFlex about 2-3 times a week in her food during the summer from early July to September. Any time she began getting the least bit itchy though, I added an extra dose.

The itch consistently stopped and she did not break out at all for the rest of the summer. And she began losing some of her extra weight! Now, during the cooler months, I am only adding some every once in awhile.

Last week, the end of November, I noticed she began scratching her sides for about two days. I realized I had not added any JuvaFlex in about a month. So I added about 4 drops to her food. No more itching! Now I will likely add some about once a month just for winter maintenance.

In the first 5 days when I initially used JuvaFlex, I used about 10 drops a day. For maintenance during the summer I was only giving her about 4-5 drops at a time. She weighed about 1,100 pounds initially during the summer and was too heavy.

She is now about 950 and is looking great. She has lost all her extra fat along her back for the first time in the 4 years I have had her.
