Recently, I have been concerned with our 11 year old dog, Spirit. Her eyes have become slightly cloudy and we wonder if she hears as clearly. Well, about a week ago she got lost overnight! My husband found her about 2miles away the next morning. She was traumatized and became very “clingy” to us. We would have to go outside with her for her to go to the bathroom and then she would run to the door to get inside the house. I felt so bad for her – she was clearly anxious and it was not going away.
I remembered that a colleague had used Frankincense essential oil on a dog biscuit for her dog who had a cancer diagnosis. So, I thought this might be a good way to use Frankincense for Spirit. I brought out the oil and she sniffed it eagerly which was something she shied away from in the past. I put a drop on her favorite treat once a day.
On the second day, I noticed drainage around her eyes which cleared easily. On day 3 and 4, my husband and I both noted that the cloudiness of her eyes was gone! On day 7, something happened with Spirit’s emotions. She went outside on her own – she ran and was playful and began to roam the yard again! It was like Spirit got her spirit back!
This is week two and I am still using the Frankincense essential oil. I gave her one day off and began regime again. I am not sure how long we will continue this process but I believe Spirit will guide me:)
