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.


I was bitten by my Doberman on a Thursday morning Dec.16th about 7 am. I was in terrible pain. It was unexpected and unprovoked, but he bit me anyway.

My oldest son went for the aloe vera that we have growing in our garden, while I was moving my fingers to make sure that there were no broken bones in my hand. I was also washing the blood off.

He put the aloe vera on it and bandaged it up. We then checked this website for what others did with essential oils. We don't have a lot in stock so we kept looking till we found a testimonial with what we have on hand.

We found out that Lavender and Peppermint worked good for dog bites. Since I have LavaDerm I used that on my hand about 2 hours after the attack. It took the stiffness out and I was able to make a fist. Not a tight one but I could move my fingers. I continued to put more on it when I noticed that it was stiffening up again. I also added a drop of Lavender and Peppermint oil.

I have been amazed again with how fast the oils work. At first there was some swelling but that was gone in a couple of days. I continued to use the LavaDerm until my hand was completely better. It has been 11 days now since the episode and all that is left is a little scarring. I am using olive oil to take care of that.

Essential oils are one of God's amazing creations and gifts which He has given us.

By the way, my Doberman, Rex, is very sorry and still loves me and I him.
