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.


Is your cat scratching ears, shaking their head, have debris that looks like blackish/brown coffee grounds in the ears? Ear mites, small spider-like parasites, feed off ear wax in the cat's ear canal.

Help get rid of ear mites without toxic chemicals:

To a 1 oz. (30 ml) glass dropper bottle, I add 10-12 drops of the Purification essential oil blend and then fill the bottle with olive oil. (Allow space for the dropper to fit.)

Warm the oil slightly if desired before applying. Holding the cat and its head firmly, squeeze a full dropper of the olive oil mixture down into the ear canal (the cat will want to get loose and shake it out).

Gently use cotton swabs with the same mixture on them to remove the debris visible in the ears. Do NOT go deep into the ear canal with the Q-tip. Absorb any excess oil that the cat shakes out later onto its fur with a paper towel.

Repeat for a couple days: a dropperful of the oil mixture into the ear canal and gently removing the debris from the ears with a Q-tip. Wait a week and repeat process. Skip another week and repeat.

All stages of the ear mites' life cycle will have been addressed with this regimen.
