What is it?
Aromatherapy for cats, dogs, horses (equines) and other animals is the therapeutic use of scent to promote your pet’s health and well being.
Using essential oils from flowers, herbs and trees, aromatherapy helps rejuvenate your pet’s mind, body and spirit. Oils are absorbed through the skin or inhaled directly to provide pain relief and decrease tension, fatigue and stress.
It is often referred to as an alternative, integrative, complementary, natural and / or holistic medicine for cats, dogs, horses (equines) rabbits and other animals and pets. Some oils can be dangerous for pregnant animals and for some breeds of dog and cats. Always check with your veterinarian before use.
How does it work?
Aroma therapists for pets use essential oils. These are natural aromatic substances which provide physical and emotional therapeutic benefits.
Distilled from; flowers, herbs and plants, essential oils represent a very high herbal energy. This helps to restore and enhance your pet’s mental and physical health.
Different oils have different therapeutic benefits. They can; refresh, relax, soothe and induce a sense of well being. Oils can be applied direct to the skin or they can be inhaled when your pet sniffs them. Animals can direct their own healing treatment program by picking the oils most beneficial to them.
Your pet’s (e.g. cat, dog, horse, rabbit etc.) body can then utilise the healing properties of the oils and initiate the body’s innate healing process.
