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.

My 12 1/2-year-old chocolate lab has all the symptoms of Cushing's disease. We have not done the cortisol stim test (a.k.a. ACTH stimulation test) due to the cost and his lack of significant symptoms. My goal is to keep him as comfortable as possible for as long as possible.

He had the typical hair loss, and his snout was completely bald and shining! He is on medication for other older dog issues, so I figured that some essential oils may help him feel better.

I made a bottle with the following mixture:

40 drops olive oil
40 drops Lemon
10 drops Thieves
10 drops Peppermint (to cool him off, as he has overheating issues)
4 drops Frankincense

I apply this mixture morning and night on his kidneys, on the top of his head, and on the Vita Flex points for his kidneys.

Well, I can tell that he feels better, and the top of his snout has hair again. I am working on adding additional Lemon essential oil on his liver to help his liver function, a problem with Cushing's disease. We will see how that goes. All I know is that he is feeling better and looks great!
