Aromatherapy for Pets

November 6, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy can be very beneficial for pets, when used safety, correctly and responsibly. The 2 main factors are to use essential oils in a safe dilution ratio and short frequency of time in a well-ventilated area. Certain essential oils will be safer than others. When using aromatherapy with your pet, I highly recommend knowing and understanding safety precautions, guidelines, contraindications, and sensitivities so that you know when your pet is responding or if they are reacting.   Safe essential oils for animals I do find certain scent categories of essential oils to be more gentle than others.

Interesting story about Rene-Maurice Gattefosse…many who have studied aromatherapy, have heard his name as a leading pioneer in forging the path in aromatherapy. As the legend goes, it has been said that he burned his hand and stuck it in a vath of lavender oil to heal it. Well, that is not actually true.

What is their sensitivity level? Where is the pain? How long have they had the pain? What is their pain level on a scale of 1-10? Current tissue state? Hot or cold? Wet or Dry? Tense... Read More
