Buyer beware.

One Saturday night recently I let our chickens out of their enclosure while I watered the garden for a few minutes nearby. My dogs don't bother them. When I went to put them all back inside, one was missing - I called out and searched and finally my 9 year old daughter saw lots of feathers at the fence to our neighbour's. We ran over to the neighbour's yard and their dog had absolutely mauled the chicken - it was lying down with closed eyes, lots of gashes and blood, and very shallow breathing.

I took it back home and put Helichrysum in all the wounds I could find (face, shoulders and many over her lower back) for stopping blood flow and easing pain, then Melrose, knowing that infection would be one of the big challenges, and finally Lavender for calming

Day 2 she could sit up but her eyes weren't opening. I put oils on 3 times in the day and gave her water as well as some diluted NingXia Red through a dropper.
I trimmed her feathers so I could see where all the wounds were and saw that her skin was red and hot - infection had set. She pooed once today.

Day 3 and I thought that water alone wouldn't keep up her strength so gave her a dropper of Powermeal/water

By Day 4 the infection was gone she could stand up.

Day 6 one of her eyes opened slightly and I thought maybe they were caked shut so bathed them both with a saline solution and they opened! Gave her water with a little rice syrup sweetener to keep up her energy.

In addition to the original healing oils put on her wounds 2 to 3 x a day I added Valor, and SARA for trauma.

Day 12 she drank by herself from a bowl and Day 13 she ate some diced tomato. She was then moved from my bathroom to the study and roams at leisure.

Day 16 she began preening. Tried her in the chicken pen but the others sensed her weakness and try to peck her.

I returned her to the pen a few weeks later and she is good as new! GREAT OILS!!
