Horse Injury

My horse was injured in a barb wire fence. Five applications of Ol+Zone Healing Oil to the hind legs were enough to heal the legs, with no swelling nor scarring.

The hair even grew back in less than a month.

Surprisingly the hair grew back black like when she was a foal.



My wife is diabetic, she battled with ulcers for years. I refused to sign for an amputation before we tried any possible solution. We applied the Olzone Healing spray daily and after a week, the ulcers started to heal and we avoided the dreaded amputation.

Persistent skin sores

We have been using Olzone for some time now and we are very happy with the product. We struggled with persistent skin sores and recently had several serious abscesses/carbuncles. After testing several other products, we have found that Olzone is effective on open sores that is infected with resistive staph aureus or any other open sores. We try to use natural products as much as possible and we are glad we have found a simple natural product that is effective that we can use on our children with peace of mind.
Thank you very much,

More Testimonials

My sheepdog “Soentjies” was stabbed with a knife by a burglar on his leg down to the bone. I could not afford taking him to the vet and treated the wound with Ol+Zone oil spray three times a day. The wound closed up completely.

Dog owner

“Ons gebruik Olzone al vir ‘n geruime tyd en is baie gelukkig met die produk. Ons het lank gesukkel met vel sere wat nie wil opklaar nie en het onlangs ook paar erge absesse/karbonkels gehad. Nadat ons baie ander produkte getoets het, het ons gevind dat die olzone effektief is op oop sere wat met weerstandige Staph Aureus geïnfekteer is of enige ander oop seerplekke. Ons probeer ook om so vêr moontlik natuurlike produkte te gebruik en dus is ons bly ons het ‘n eenvoudige natuurlike produk gevind wat effektief is en wat ons met gemoedsrus op ons kinders kan gebruik.
Baie dankie,
VW Stemmet”

Vullens se bene is beseer toe hul oor drade gehardloop het. Die snymerke is met Ol+Zone behandel, en na drie dae is dit byna toegegroei.
Dus…. Ek hou die olie by my en wanneer ek reis. Ek sal dit vir enigeen aanbeveel.

My neighbour had a swollen ankle, I applied Ol+Zone Healing Oil to his ankle and massaged it in for 10 minutes. There was a noticeable difference between the massaged leg and the other leg, the swelling came down immediately. My neighbour was delighted and said he had not seen a product that can do wonders within minutes. He bought a spray bottle to keep by his bedside.

Ol+Zone Healing Oil is vir ons onverbeterlik op die plaas waar ons woon. Die veearts is net twee keer per maand beskikbaar. Dus het ek begin om die olie op n kanker tussen die ribbes van my windhond te spuit. Volgens die veearts kon die kanker na die hond se longe versprei, en moes dit uitgesny word. Na vier weke is die plek toegegroei en gesond.
