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 came home a bit too late one night so that our cat was left out past dark. Once she finally decided to come out to us from the trees and shrubs we noticed she was not her usual self. She was not happy, not wanting to move much and most of all not wanting to get to her food fast. Which at this point I noticed just a little blood on the floor from her tail.

We examined her and sure enough she had a large gash, about 2 inches on her tail about midway. We got Lavender and Purification and got that on the wound. I then wrapped it lightly and she went to bed.

In the morning we got to the Vet who said stitches could not be done on wounds older than 12 hours but took her to inspect and clean up. I got called back and told that while shaving it a large clump of fur came off that was blocking the main vein, which saved her life of course, but now would do stitches as she had no choice she had to close the wound.

I was told that the tail may not come back to life & may have to be amputated but won't know for a few days. I said 'not to worry I have oils for this healing' and off we went.

Oils of Frankincense, Lavender, Purification, Believe, and Hope were used on her. And I bet you know the rest of the story; we have a fully functioning tail without even a keloid to find where those stitches or scar were. She is one oily cat!
