Buyer beware.


I had a quick and wonderful result with Wintergreen oil in a diffuser overnight.

My healthy two year old hound has been rubbing her ears regularly and now beginning to bite at her skin and cry. She had been repeatedly tested negative for ear mites and her ears look clean even with a deep medical exam. I had her blood tested for multiple allergies, among a few others, (mostly grasses currently not out in the winter here) she showed a high response for dust mites.

I already have a HIPPA filter high-grade vacuum cleaner, few rugs, etc. so was especially frustrated to think we had dust mites.

After a thorough house-wide vacuum and laundry everything I could, I then used Young Living's Wintergreen oil in a diffuser in the bedroom all night which resulted in no ear pulling or scratching.

After two nights I stopped and the dog scratched again. On the third, fourth and fifth night I used the diffuser again and no scratching. The 6th night no oil - she scratched and I'm not sure how long I will need to do this. I also moved the diffuser from room to room, and had the vacuum motor professionally cleaned and filters replaced.

I am pleased with the effects of Wintergreen oil and will see how things continue...
