Benefits: Can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, antiseptic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, deodorant, diaphoretic, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicidal, insect repellent, stomachache, stimulant, tonic and vermifuge substance.
PET: For dogs with fleas, add a couple of drops to a "doggie bandana" or to an absorbent collar, such as woven nylon, and place around dog’s neck. Do not use this method for cats, as felines are much more sensitive to this scent.

Wildcrafted: Paradise Springs Oils are wildcrafted, a practice of harvesting plants from their natural, or “wild” habitat. This process means there are never any unwanted chemicals such as herbicides or pesticides introduced into the plant’s growing life cycle. Care is taken to only remove the necessary plants, flowers, or branches, so that plenty remain to continue supply.
Paradise Springs Essential Oils feature a regulator cap to control the flow of oil out of the bottle. Each oil is highly concentrated and, therefore, only a few drops are required at a time. The regulator helps control usage for easy blending and diluting.
Paradise Springs Essential Oils are 100% pure, highly concentrated oils rich in natural, aromatic compounds. Wildcrafted, these compounds—also known as essences— are never chemically altered or synthetically modified. Found naturally in different parts of plants, these potent liquids are perfect for aromatherapy, skin care, and natural home-cleaning solutions.
