Case histories from Dr. Young's Essential Oils Desk Reference (EODR), published by Essential Science Publishing:
#1 "In 1997 a horse's back hock was fractured, with two 50-cent-sized pieces splintered off. The animal was diagnosed at stage 5 lameness and the vet urged euthanizing the animal. After birch essential oil was applied for several months, the bone regenerated and the break healed. Today the horse (Goliath) is ridden in jousting tournaments.
Wintergreen can be used in place of birch to achieve similar results. Other oils that may be effective for this condition include helichrysum, spruce and Idaho balsam fir. Sulfurzyme can be used internally."
#2 "A 4-month-old colt had the hide on one side of its body stripped off. The wound was sprayed with Melrose (natural antiseptic blend of Melaleuca alternifolia, naouli, rosemary, clove) to disinfect and helichrysum to control pain. The wound was then sealed with the formula now known as Animal Scents Ointment. Within several months the hair and skin had completely grown in and the animal had made a full recovery."
#3 "In 2000, a show horse received some kind of severe bite on the pastern. Although the vet diagnosed a rattlesnake bite, it may have been caused by something else. Two weeks later, the entire pastern and coronet band were inflamed (the size of a cantaloupe) and the rotting, decaying flesh revealed a large hole where the bone was visible and had separated from the hoof. The vet suggested amputating the foot. Instead the following protocol was initiated:
Day 1: Wound was cleaned and disinfected with Thieves (antibacterial blend of cinnamon, cloves, eucalyptus, lemon, & rosemary) and helichrysum and the foot was bandaged. This treatment decreased pain enough to allow the mare to put weight on the foot.
Day 2: Swelling dropped by 50 percent. Wound was again cleaned with Thieves and helichrysum and then packed with Animal Scents Ointment.
Day 3 to 14: Wound was washed morning and night with Thieves, Melrose and helichrysum and packed with Animal Scents Ointment.
RESULT: The animal today walks with no discomfort. A brand new hoof has appeared with only a small scar where the wound was. Although there was minor swelling in the pastern for a while, it faded 8 months later."
#4 "A large thoroughbred gelding was attacked by a cougar that clawed a chunk of flesh out of the horse's buttocks half the size of a soccer ball. The horse bled terribly, blood squirting from ruptured blood vessels.
The vet said the prognosis was grim because there was too much torn, damaged, and removed tissue. Even if the horse didn't die, the wound would leave a sizable scar and indentation.
DAY 1: To reduce pain and stop bleeding, a 5cc hypodermic syringe was filled with helichrysum and sprayed into the wound. The horse became less jittery and the bleeding stopped.
Several minutes later a larger 10cc syringe of Purification (antiseptic blend of citronella, rosemary, lavendin, lemongrass, Melaleuca alternifolia, myrtle) was sprayed into the open wound. It took over 15 ml of Purification to spray down and cover the entire wound.
After several hours, the wound was sprayed with Melrose to disinfect it and packed with the Animal Scents Ointment.
To keep hair out of the wound and reduce the possibility of infection, the tail was wrapped and tied up. Because there was no way to cover or close the wound, the horse was kept in the stable to prevent him from moving around. The animal was closely monitored to reduce the possibility of reinfection caused by the animal lying down, rolling around, and scratching the wound.
DAY 2-7 The horse's grain was supplemented with enzymes (crushed up Essentialzyme—Polyzyme is also helpful) and four scoops of Power Meal, which is dense in the nutrients required for healing and tissue rebuilding. Three times daily the open wound was irrigated with Purification and helichrysum. The vet came regularly to monitor the horse's progress. He remarked that he had never seen muscle tissue regenerate to such a degree.
WEEKS 2 to 4 Two times a day the open wound was irrigated with Purification and helichrysum
WEEKS 4 to 8 Once a week the wound was irrigated with Purification and helichrysum until it was closed.
RESULTS: Today no indentation or concavity is visible, only a small circular two-inch scar."
A few more quick suggestions from the EODR:
Arthritis - Panaway (anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving blend of wintergreen, clove, helichrysum, peppermint)
Calming - Peace & Calming blend of tangerine, ylang ylang, blue tansy, orange, patchouli
Saddle sores & raw spots - Melrose & Animal Scents ointment for at least 3 days.
Newborns - consider using myrrh oil instead of iodine on the umbilical cord of newborn foals. This has been used for milennia for human & animal births as it dries the cord, prevents infection, & facilitates a good separation.
