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 was asked to post a follow up on my dog's melanoma cancer experience posted in March of 2009. She continued to do very well for a total of 9 months after the diagnosis. She had only been projected to live for 5 months by the oncologist.

At 9 months following diagnosis, she rapidly declined, in the matter of a day, she started vomiting, and being very unhappy, so we decided not to prolong her misery and to exchange our pain for hers, and took her to the vet where they very humanely put her down as we held her in our laps.

Thanks to the oils we had used on her (Frankincense, Lavender, Purification oil blend, and Lemon) she lived a very happy, active last 9 months. Her coat was so shiny and healthy even in death, that it was hard to believe that she could be gone.

I was very grateful to have had those last happy months with her and also glad not to have her go through chemotherapy and other drug treatments.

I had been through chemo myself a couple of years before, and got through it fairly well, but it would have been tough to explain to a dog!

These oils really improved the quality of both of our lives!
