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 granddog, a Chiweenie, was visiting for a few days and loved to traipse in the woods.

She arrived home one day with a couple of ticks on her belly and chest. They were already attached firmly when I found them.

I decided to get out the Thieves and Purification oil blends to perform an experiment.

I put one drop of Purification on the skin surrounding one tick, massaging it in. That tick backed out and I got it off.

I applied one drop of Thieves the same way with the other tick and it not only made him back out, but he died on the spot!

I am sure my granddog was very grateful!
