An animal bite treated with essential oils

    So last week, our elderly inside cat bit me. Not an aggressive bite, it was a case of mistaken identity as she mistook my thumb for her food. Blood was drawn so I quickly washed it and put some rubbing alcohol on it. By the end of the day my thumb was swelling and starting to get stiff. By the next morning it was more swollen, turning a very light shade of pinkish red, and I could barely bend my thumb.

    I figured this was as good of a time as any to try a natural remedy that we already had on hand. So my wife told me to get a bandaid, put 2 drops of rosemary oil and 2 drops of tea tree oil on the bandaid, and put that band aid on the wound.

    Truth be told, I was expecting to have to give my doctor a call that evening. To my surprise, at the end of the day the swelling had gone down, the natural color was back, and movement was getting better. The next morning I repeated the treatment. By the end of the second day my thumb was back to normal, except for the 2 puncture wounds!

    I am not that much into essential oils but my wife is, and this has definitely showed me the benefit of having alternative forms of treatment. Your results may vary, but in my case they worked beautifully!

    I am a huge believer in essential oils……… IF….. the essential oil is quality… Walmart brands are notorious for not being what they are labeled to be.

    Oregano oil + coconut oil from cold press has worked wonders for me with problems with my teeth / gums.

    I bought an extra large bottle of the Oregano oil to have in supply for backup as a major war or economic collapse does not seem to be far away.

      Oregano oil is a HUGE medicinal arsenol in our home.

    It took my husband some time to get used to the idea that EO’s and herbs have the potential to keep us out of the clinics/hospitals.

    Thank you for sharing!!

    Results do speak for themselves.
