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.


We have a 6 year old dog who each year when spring comes starts to chew on her feet until they bleed and she scratches constantly creating bald hot spots.

She also has had clumps of eye discharge in her eyes year round. We end up taking her to the vet at least once a year for this. They give her a cortisone shot and antibiotics and suggest expensive allergy and cancer testing. The symptoms clear up and come right back.

It treats the symptoms but not the cause. The vet prescribes a prescription ointment for the eyes that never works. We have had her on various diets: grain free, gluten free, raw diet, supplements, fish oil, you name it. The vet has also determined that because diet has not helped, it must be environmental.

I started using one drop of Lavender and one drop of Frankincense oils on her daily. I separate the fur on the back of her neck and drop the oil on her skin.

In about three weeks I noticed her eyes were clear. They have remained clear for a whole month now. She started chewing her feet mid April before we got our oils but stopped as soon as we started using the oils.

I am so glad her feet are now fine with healthy black pads and her eyes are clear.

Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
