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 foster dogs through an animal rescue. While they cover all their vetting expenses, I had one stray come to me on a Saturday night. After checking him over, I found him to have ringworm on his belly.

I used Thieves on it, full strength, which I probably should have diluted. He squirmed just for a minute and then was fine after the initial contact. I treated it for two days and it was gone by the third day.

I also used Thieves in some coconut oil and massaged that in the other fosters to prevent it from spreading to other dogs.

Fortunately there was no outbreak!
