Here’s a little information about each:
Lavender is the most versatile of all essential oils and has been highly regarded as soothing to the skin. The French scientist René Maurice Gattefossé was the first to discover these properties when he severely burned his arm in his laboratory and discovered the amazing healing properties of lavender. It can be used to cleanse cuts, bruises, scrapes, and skin irritations, etc. Lavender has also been studied for its relaxing effects, both physically and emotionally. Helpful for puppies to sleep all night. Or if they get too wild, apply to back paws.
Lemon helps support the immune system. It can serve as an insect or flea repellent. Add a few drops to distilled water and spritz on your pet for a refreshing lift after an active day. Brain function is enhanced 32% by smelling lemon oil and 62% by diffusing it.
Peppermint is soothing to the digestive system. Jean Valnet, M.D., studied peppermint’s ability to affect the liver and respiration. Scientists have also researched peppermint’s role in affecting impaired taste and smell. It can improve mental accuracy up to 28% when inhaled. Useful for digestive upset and to enhance your pet’s appetite. Place a drop on your tongue for enhance brain function and take care of bad breath. Also, you can put a few drops in a spritzer bottle with water and spray in your dog’s mouth to get rid of doggie breath.
Joy is an exotic blend of lemon, ylang ylang, bergamot, mandarin, rose and other essential oils. Joy produces a magnetic energy, bringing joy to the heart. When diffused, it can be refreshing and uplifting.
PanAway was created by Gary Young as a result of an injury in which he severely tore the ligament in his leg. This blend contains wintergreen, which has an active principle similar to cortisone, clove, (which contains eugenol, a constituent used by dentists to numb gums), peppermint, calming for nerves; and helichrysum, soothing to localized discomfort. Very effective.
Peace & Calming is a gentle, fragrant blend especially designed for diffusing, but you can easily apply it to the soles of feet. Its components are orange, tangerine, ylang ylang, patchouli, and blue tansy. These oils promote relaxation and a deep sense of peace. When massaged on the pads of your pet’s back feet, it can be a wonderful prelude to a peaceful night’s rest. Peace & Calming may be especially calming and comforting to your pet during an overactive, stressful day. You can also put 10 drops in a 2-ounce spray bottle and spray the air to promote relaxation. This is very good for children as well.
Purification is a blend of purifying essential oils, such as citronella, lemongrass and melaleuca. When diffused, it can neutralize mold, mildew, disagreeable pet odors, cigarette smoke – it will generally cleanse the air. When applied directly to the skin, Purification can be excellent for soothing insect, flea or tick bites and for cleansing cuts and scrapes, and it also works as an insect repellent.
Testimonials about their results with The Essential 7 Kit:
“I noticed we have not had a flea problem since we have been diffusing Purification on a regular basis. We used to have to put that nasty stuff we got from the vet on behind the dog’s neck every year. We have not done that in two years. This was just a by-product of our quest for better family health.” – David Langdon
“I discovered that Peace and Calming also works wonders for dogs that get frightened by fireworks. I have a dog that just freaks out. She normally cannot be consoled or controlled — she literally will claw the skin right off of whoever is trying to hold her. Well, doused with Peace and Calming on the pads of her paws and inside her earflap and down the middle of her muzzle, she slept like a baby and didn’t show the least concern. This is truly a blessing for an animal and much better than trying to tranquilize them. I applaud the groomers, vets, and kennels that are thoughtful enough to use Peace and Calming. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if more of the pet industry caught on to the oils? Peace and Blessings,” – Nancy
“My 62 pound dog has hip dysplaysia and we give her 1/2 tsp. of the powdered Sulfurzyme every morning and again every evening, and it has really been helpful for her. We just put it on top of her dry food in the morning and then put a teaspoon of safflower oil for her coat on top and stir into the dried food. In the evening we give her a large tablespoon of canned dog food in with the dried food — and the Sulfurzyme mixes very easily into that.” – Debby Cason
