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.

During the cold winter months my fingertips start to split open (especially the more my hands are in water); it hurts to do anything with my fingertips.

I have the Animal Scents Ointment in my cabinet and I pulled it out thinking it did so well on my feet (I had ordered it for cracked heels which has helped tremendously), why not give it a try on my fingertips.

I applied some before bedtime and put on gloves (socks work great too) and the next morning, my fingers didn't hurt as much and the cracks were not red and as dry.

I kept applying throughout the day and again that night. The next morning, the cracks were completely sealed with only a visible line where they were located. I continued to apply each time I washed my hands.

My husband is a service technician and his fingers split as well (only his are deeper and longer - ouch). He applied the ointment at night as well and was pleased with the results the next morning.

He continues to use Animal Scents as a moisturizer throughout the day!
