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 had to take my Jack Russell to the veterinarian a couple of months ago because, due to allergies, she had licked a spot on the top of her paw to the point that it was raw.

The vet gave me a prescription spray, but it did not seem to give my dog any relief. I also tried several over-the-counter sprays, bitter apple, etc., with no success.

A friend suggested Lavender essential oil. So I put one drop on each paw, diluted with coconut oil. After the first application, my dog immediately quit licking her paw!

I have repeated the application of Lavender oil two to three times a day, and my dog seems to no longer be bothered by the allergies. There is absolutely no more licking at all!

I am so thankful to be able to address this issue with my all-natural essential oils.
