I originally purchased the mastitis salve for a first-freshening Alpine that freshened with a congested udder. Worked great.
Two months ago, my mother broke her arm, and as of last week, had her cast removed. There was quite a bit of residual edema, swelling, stiffness, and pain in her hand, wrist and forearm due to how her arm was positioned in the cast. When I had researched this product, I had mentioned that other people had used it for muscle pain, so she decided to try it on her arm. Overnight, the color changed to almost normal, the stiffness in her finger and knuckle joints decreased to the point that now she can oppose her thumb to her fingers and almost make a full fist; plus she can now rotate her wrist a little bit. The edema is also softening. Today, she was able to write her name again. She will eventually have physical therapy to regain the strength she lost, but she is SO thankful for this salve! (and for me, because I bought the salve)
And the Herbal Wormer's great too!

Saved my doe
I was recently reminded how well the Mastitis Salve works when I had a first freshener not only get engorged after birth but then she stepped on a teat. I was not able to get any milk out of it on day 2 and after I had tried it was angry and purple. Poor girl. I decided to use the Mastitis Salve twice a day on her, leave the injured teat alone to heal and milk out the good side. My decision was to allow the Salve to work and give her a few days. It started to heal and on day 4 I was able to milk her out on that teat, starting gently, and by day 7 it was healed. I am happy to say there is no long term damage. People need to know that your products help the goats own body with healing. Thank you!

I bought this cream to use on a goat that had mastitis. I used the cream some and it worked well.
A couple of years later my husband cut off his finger with a chain saw. The doctor was able to reattach the finger. The finger was very stiff and therapy was very hard. I was looking for some way to help and thought why not try it. So I got the mastitis cream and massaged the finger with it. The difference was amazing! We massaged the finger at least once a day with the mastitis cream. The cream softened the stiff finger and gave relief that nothing else did. The finger is crooked but he now has full use of it.

Great for Human Mommys too!
I used this product on my goats with great success. My daughter recently had her first baby and was having some breast feeding issues. Her breasts became very congested and inflamed - I thought, hmmm, this worked great on the goats why not give it a try! It worked wonders! Her breast inflammation and congestion went away immediately and she was able to produce milk again with no pain! Thanks Molly for a fantastic product! =)

So one of my girls had a really bad Edema after her kids were born. This
year she had twins but the year before she had a singleton and that
Singleton only nursed from one side causing her utter to be lopsided and
it got Edema last year as well. So this year when it was happening
again even though she had twins they still prefer only one side and tens
you not suck as much from the other side it’s swelled up and it’s been
super hard and painful to touch and milk out even though her milk is
fine and she doesn’t have mastitis. I had been putting bag balm on her
udder of when I milked her but it was still rock hard and painful so I
bought the mastitis salve with peppermint oil from y’all and I’ve only
been using it for a week and it’s clearly helped so much her Udder is
supple and soft again and not painful! The swelling is abating at a

First I would like to thank you for what you do in animal herbalism.
Second I would like to tell a story of what happened to our herd during
the Great Texas Chill. As I was no stranger to extreme cold weather our
goats were. Our matriarch of the herd who has the genetics, that if she
was human, would have a pay-per-view channel displaying her rather large
utters. It was her utters that were the problem. No matter how much I
prepared the goat shed with extra bedding and insulation it did not
prevent Goldie from getting frostbite on one of her utters.
On top of the frost bite she got misstates in that same utter. There was
no way to remove the misstates since the utter was frost bitten and a
shield of dead tissue formed in less than 24 hours. The whole utter was
frost bitten and Goldie was running a stream of green mucus from her
nostrils. My first reaction was to hand feed her as much of the Breathe
Ease tea that she wanted. The next step was to add half a cup to her
feed to fortify her condition. The third was to use the Utter Butter to
save what I could, if at all, of her utter.
It is my personal belief based on how Goldie reacted to the herbs that
it was your product and my diligence that saved her life. Unfortunately
half of her utter was removed today and the cavity cleaned out. However,
she is alive and hours after her field surgery is as demanding as ever.
With the Breathe Ease Goldie was able to support her immune system which
gave her a massive advantage. With the Utter Butter she was able to
keep half of her utter. Unfortunately her pay-per-view channel will
suffer a hit.
All in all I wanted to thank you for what you provide for us customers. Please continue doing the great things that you do!

Thanks so much for the rush order of udder salve. I had two does kid
within four days and neither one seems to want to nurse their kids. We
are putting the babies on them in the stand and then finishing by hand.
Both udders were so hard it was nearly impossible to milk, not to
mention painful. The massage with your salve has worked wonderfully on
both my girls so I ordered another one to make sure I don't run out!

Molly -- I used the Mastitis/Udder Salve on a congested first freshener
and within 2 Ieks she softened up very nicely. Very good product!
I had to tell you - this stuff [Mastitis/Udder Salve] is fantastic!!! It
started softening her udder immediately & today, she gave us 3
times more milk than I'd been getting previously. Her udder is soft,
soft, soft. Amazing!! Thanks for the advise and the salve!
- Chris Nichols very satisfied goat mom
I tried the small jar of your Mastitis/Udder Salve on 2 of our older
does who had severe udder hardening/lumping with subsequent mastitis and
it worked almost like a miracle. Both udders returned to their soft
natural condition by the end of just 2 weeks. Both of these does had
given us difficulty with this condition for months and I Ire at the end
of our rope, had almost given up on ever saving the one half of each
udder. Thanks again. If your other products are as good as the salve, I
will definitely be ordering some of them too.

Your products are the best. For mastitis, the herbal support tincture
and mastitis salve combined with massage, frequent milkings, and hot
compresses with tea tree and peppermint oils in the hot water have
worked better for me than any intramammary antibiotics.
