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 family has a 10 year old dog named Dakota. He is, as far as we can tell, part German Shepard and Hound and has always had issues with his skin. We have had to take him to the vet numerous times for treatment when we notice he has given himself a hotspot. They usually prescribe an antibiotic for the infection and ointment to help the wound heal.

A couple of weeks ago, we discovered a new hotspot that had already begun to turn green from infection right after I received my first order of YLO.

The first time I applied the Lavender oil on Dakota, he didn't enjoy the process most likely because it was so sore to begin with. However, after that he would lift up his head so we could reach the area on the base of his neck. I used several drops of Lavender on the hotspot for two days twice a day and on the third day noticed that the wound was almost completely gone!

The morning of the fourth day his skin was back to normal. Amazing.
