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 13-year-old terrier has had severe environmental allergies since I rescued her 9 years ago. We started off with Benadryl two times a day with occasional prednisone rounds. When the Benadryl stopped working, she was switched to Zyrtec. Again she would STILL have to go on the occasional rounds of steroids, which I hated to do. I have tried different foods for her, including the prescription food from the vet.

It has now been over a month, and I am SO happy to say that she is no longer dealing with the allergies. And I still say that quietly so I don't jinx anything, LOL. I use 1/4 cup of organic coconut oil and add 7 drops each of Lavender and Purification, with 2 drops of Frankincense added to it.

I started off rubbing down her belly and feet two times a day and just rubbing what's left on my hands (usually just the scent at that point) down the rest of her body. I now do it once a day. The brown crusty sores that she had all over her were gone in less than a week. She's now actually playful and more at peace.

And my other dog won't be left out either! She gets super excited just seeing me grab my container and isn't happy unless she gets to EAT some of it. So I give her a rubdown and let her lick the oil mix off of my hands.

Thank you Young Living for a more natural approach... and one that has worked!!
