Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I came home from a few days away and found one of my horses with two large wounds; one open deep wound on the shoulder and one that was scabbed over and abcessed on the flank. I figured I'd try the oils because the standard IM or oral antibiotics always cause side effects and often don't really work.

Twice a day I washed with soap and water and applied Frankincense, Basil, Thyme and Lavender oils to the wounds, getting the oils inside the wounds as much as possible. After 5 days, the swelling was gone, the pus was gone, the soreness was gone. I stopped the oils after that point and things have healed up as if the wounds never existed.
