21. essential lavender oil. not straight up, but cut in with another, gentler oil

 

(which is how it's sold anyway). The bottle I have right now is lavender/almond oil, but any of the lavender/something blends will do.

Essential lavender oil is antimicrobial and very soothing to the skin. Not to mention the heavenly fragrance.

I used it on Jake's ringworm, which the prescription stuff hadn't touched for 2 months. Continued the prescription stuff, but used the lavender oil in between. Left my dog vet all when the ringworm magically disappeared.

I also have used it to heal scratches (which is essentially the same thing as ringworm, i.e. a symbiotic fungal/bacterial infection) on my old horse, who was prone to both in his later years.
