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 dachshund puppy got ringworm on his tummy. I had read that Lavender worked on ringworm so I gave it a try. It seem to be working and drying it up, but to make sure I took him to vet and the vet ran a test and it did not show up as ringworm, but just by looking he really felt thats what is was. He did give me some meds to put on spot area, but i just kept using Lavender a few more days and it was completely gone away.

Now I'm pretty sure that it was ringworm due to that a couple of my cats come up with same thing. I did the same with Lavender and it went away on them. Now on the cats I did dilute oil with drops of V-6 oil. I was told that cats are more sensitive so thats why I diluted it.

My husband also got ringworm on his neck, I put Lavender on it along with a drop of Lemon oil to help dry it up faster and within a day it was almost gone.
