The Best Essential Oil to Use if Your Dog has Benign Tumors
Non-cancerous tumors (technically, benign skin neoplasia) can include a wide variety of things, including pimples, skin tags, cysts, and more. If you notice the tumor is rapidly growing, bleeding, or is causing your dog pain, you should get it checked out right away.
Dealing With Benign Tumors Naturally
I have to tell you an anecdotal story about non-cancerous tumors. Our dog, Cleo, started getting some benign tumors when she was older. She had a few small ones on her muzzle, a couple on her back, and a larger one on her back leg.
While they weren’t cancerous and weren’t causing her obvious discomfort, we wanted to see if there was anything we could do about them that would be non-invasive but would help reduce or eliminate them.
We started dropping Frankincense essential oil (from Young Living) on them daily, and within about a month, the small ones on her muzzle and back were about 95% gone! The larger one on her back leg started shrinking as well. We kept applying the Frankincense until the ones on her muzzle and back were completely gone and the one on her leg was significantly reduced in size.
The Power of Frankincense
Frankincense has been shown to be antitumoral, as well as an immunostimulant, an antidepressant, and a muscle relaxant. So, it’s no surprise to me it had such a profound impact on Cleo. While I’m not saying it will be able to eliminate your dog’s non-cancerous tumors, it may be something you’ll want to look into further (along with getting the diet on track and eliminating toxins as much as possible, of course).
