Buyer beware.

I've had my dog since she was a puppy & rescued. She is a large furry lab chow mix or as I like to say, a Chowbrador :0) At any rate, her fur is very black and very thick due to her genetic makeup. She was outside with me the other day in the garden and I saw her hop & then a bee fly up from her paw. It immediately began swelling and she could barely hobble back into the house.

I began shuffeling through my refrigerator laiden with organic essential oils. I selected pure french Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) for its healing properties. I was unable due to her thick dark coat find the exact spot of the sting. But was able to figure out from her reactions the centalized location that was stung.

I then took 5 straight drops of the Lavender and worked it over that area of her paw and through the fur down to the skin. Of course as soon as I left her for a second she was licking it off so I came back to Miss runny lips! LOL I wiped her mouth with a dry rag & sat & pet her. The scent & consumption of the Lavender had calmed her down as well as me! After 5 min she was able to make it to her water dish without it causing as much of a limp. I the made her stay on her bed while I cooked dinner.

Thirty minutes later when I was done & let her get up, you could barely tell anything was wrong & 95% of the swelling was gone. We never had to reapply & that was over a week ago. My sweet doggie is 100% better & out of pain :0) God is good! See Ezekiel 47:12 NASB
