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 beautiful border collie was 6 yrs old when he started to have epileptic fits, we took him to the vet who advised that this was common for the breed and if we put him on meds it would be for the rest of his life.

Not wanting to do this I went home and looked in my essential oils reference book. It said to try Lavender or Frankincense oil. I applied one drop of Lavender to the crown of his head!.

The fits were still coming about every 3-4 weeks, so the next 2 times he had a fit when I was present I applied 1 drop of Frankincense to his crown during the fit. The third time he had a fit I noticed that he stayed fairly alert and the symptoms did not seem so severe.

That was six months ago. I have not seen my dog have a fit since and I am at home with him more regularly than I ever was.

I now apply Frankincense oil about once a month just as a preventative.
