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 purebred whippet Topaz had been displaying a strange behaviour of nibbling on her paws over the past two weeks. Another one of my dogs had been severely ill with an auto immune disease over the same period, so unfortunately I had not been as attentive to Topaz's discomfort as I normally would.

Last night her discomfort was heightened. I had applied Copaiba to a cyst on her neck two weeks before which had resulted in the cyst breaking open and scabbing over. Last night I noticed the scab was still there and had not lifted at all. When her discomfort increased I decided to apply Copaiba to her paws and massage in.

At first she had some relief but then her discomfort increased further. It was so bad I had to put her plastic "Elizabethan" collar on to stop her chewing her paws.

A short while later she could not settle - constantly pacing and thrashing out with one of her back legs. She was obviously in a lot of discomfort so I gave her some pain relief. Being an equine body work practitioner I was fairly sure that a lot of Topaz's pacing and leg thrusting was a processing in relation to the impact of the oils on her system.

After about two hours of processing Topaz, now in bed with me, settled down to sleep for a solid two hours before asking to join the other dogs by the fire in the lounge room.

This morning her energy is much calmer, there is no chewing or signs of discomfort AND the nasty little scab on her neck is finally lifting and coming off!

I cannot ascribe this to "coincidence"!
