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.

For years I had been trying to eradicate the fleas that my cat had contracted. It is nearly impossible to control when a pet goes outside in the spring, summer and fall then inevitably comes into contact with fleas, either through hunting or other animal contact. So, how to solve this dilemma?

The flea treatment provided by my vet didn't work and seemed to increase their activity. I vacuumed, washed floors and bedding, but it did not kill the hatching of eggs. The larvae harbour in the cat's ears as mites, then they eventually crawl out and become little annoying fleas!

As I am working with the oils and becoming more familiar with them, I noticed how much the cat LOVES Peppermint essential oil and the Endoflex essential oil blend. Every time that I would use it he would become "Mr. Romantic."

I decided to apply a drop of the oil from my hands to the back of his head, off the ears, between the shoulder blades and down the spine all the way to the tail. I also gave a rub down on the head area and then stroking down the spine.

It is within hours of application that the fleas let go of their hold. Regular re-application is encouraged and the cat loves it and will thank you for it too! The oils also gives a lustrous coat of hair!

Believe me, it works! Oh yes, and do add a few drops of the Purification oil blend to the kitty litter box. It smells so much better and will keep his paws a little cleaner too!

Another tip is to wash his feet in a water bath when he comes in from the outdoors. Grab by the scruff of the neck, pick him up and then just drop him into the water to clean off the paws. Its very good for cleaning and then work with the oils.

I started treating this problem in winter and today I am one step ahead of the game.

I am so THANKFUL for the oils as I finally am 100% in control of this annoying re-occurrence.
