Welcome to the World of Animal Aromatherapy!
While aromatherapy is well-known for its therapeutic uses with humans, many may not know that aromatherapy may also be helpful for our animal friends too.
With more and more people seeking the use of holistic and alternative therapies for their own health issues, they are also becoming increasingly aware of many of these same therapies for use with their beloved animal companions.
The sense of smell is important to all animals and is relied upon for health and general well-being and especially more so for animals and their survival. An animal’s sense of smell is much more potent than ours and with some, which means that they are capable of detecting scent 10,000 to 100,000 greater than humans!
Aromatherapy is both an art and science and includes the use of pure essential oils (concentrated extracts derived from the flowers, leaves, rinds, roots, seeds, and also the gums/resins of aromatic plants and trees) as well as the use of hydrosols and botanical bases such as aloe vera gel and jojoba. Essential oils are made up of many different chemical components and it is these components that give the essences their therapeutic properties and most importantly their unique scent-all useful for physical, emotional and mental wellbeing
