"MOO" AGE THERAPY ... FOR DAIRY COWS.

DAIRY FARMERS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM SAY AROMATHERAPY IS IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF THEIR COWS.

A SPECIALLY FORMULATED "UDDER OIL" HAS HELPED CLEAR UP MASTITIS, AN INFECTION WHICH CAUSES COWS' UDDERS TO BECOME INFLAMED.

DEVELOPED BY A 59 YEAR OLD EX-FARMER, THE UDDER OIL IS A MIX OF LAVENDER, EUCALYPTUS, GERANIUM AND DAMASK ROSE.

FARMERS TOUT THAT BECAUSE THE OIL IS ALL NATURAL, NO CHEMICALS ARE PASSED INTO THE COWS' BLOOD OR MILK.

THE PRODUCT IS SAID TO CLEAR UP THE INFECTION IN TWO OR THREE DAYS.
