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 black-headed Caique is almost 19 years old. He is usually a quite active, happy little boy. Last week he started spitting up his food and refused to eat or drink anything for a few days. He had no energy and tried to sleep most of the time.

Not really knowing what was wrong, I checked in Melissa Shelton's Animal Desk Reference for possible answers. There was mention of Crop Infection, so I got out the Frankincense oil. I also thought that, if it was his time to pass on, then Frankincense was also appropriate.

I rubbed 4 drops on the front of my neck, and he tucked himself under my chin. I then put a blanket over him so that he was breathing in the vapors. I had also given him diluted NingXia Red Juice from a dropper.

Finally on the third day he was much better.

I am so thankful for Young Living and these powerful oils!
