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.
Before we knew about Young Living Essential Oils, in 2003, we had a Champion Clydesdale filly which developed what we thought was thrush so we treated it accordingly with a variety of over the counter "remedies" and also sought veterinary advice and treated her according to instructions. Unfortunately, instead of improving, the condition continued to worsen until it was apparent that it was not thrush but canker which is thought to be a combination of bacteria, virus and fungus.
Again we sought veterinary advice and the only alternative at this stage was to attempt to excise (cut away) the extensive lesion which had broken out both under and above her hoof. This was done under general anaesthetic and the vet was confident that he had got in behind the problem and that it should not regrow.
She required extensive nursing care subsequent to this operation but unfortunately, when her hoof began to regrow, so too did the canker. We discussed the problem with vets again and they reluctantly conceded that they could offer no more suggestions. Nevertheless, we persevered for months more with every antibacterial, antifungal and/or antiviral concoction we could employ but to no avail. By this time we had been fighting the problem for about two years.
One day my husband reluctantly went to get the rifle to euthanize her but instead went to the "essential oils reference book" (By this time we had been introduced to YLEO's) and looked up antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal oils and made a mixture of Oregano, Thieves, Thyme and Lemongrass oils and applied them neat to her hoof. We continued to do this 2/3 time per day and within two weeks she had healed. She has never had a recurrence of the condition.
Needless to say, we were amazed at the speed with which the oils brought about a healing. Among the many other "remedies" we had tried, to no avail, were essential oils which were not produced by Young Living. This indicated to us that Young Living oils were effective where other brands were not.
