But what IS Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the professional use of pure, unadulterated and totally natural Essential Oils to improve our health and wellbeing, in physical but also mental and emotional ways. Often people find it easy to understand the physical impact of Aromatherapy on their health because it’s results are more obvious; if I have an infected wound and I apply a topical ointment containing Essential Oils with anti-inflammatory and anti-septic qualities and my wound gets better and feels better, then this positive health outcome is obvious and easy to understand because we can see it.

The mental and emotional healing qualities of Aromatherapy sometimes take a bit more of a discerning eye, but once you understand how it all works, you will be noticing changes within yourself and your furry friends in no time.

Say you and your little dog are doing some anxious behaviours; not sleeping well, being overly vigilant, shaking, looking and feeling rather unsettled. And you spritzed our blend for anxiety and hyperactivity around both of you. Our amazing blend, Stillness & Calm contains pure, unadulterated and totally natural Patchouli Essential Oil which helps calm your anxious behaviour because it is grounding, balancing and mood harmonising because…
the pure, unadulterated and totally natural molecular constituents of Patchouli are:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Neuro-protective
  • Anti-depressant
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Analgesic
  • Anxiolytic
  • Sedative

The molecular constituents of Patchouli Essential Oil stimulate your body’s release of pleasure hormones serotonin and dopamine too. So we feel better when we spritz Stillness & Calm about! And this is but one of the amazing and pure Essential Oils in this blend!

Is it ok to use Aromatherapy with my pet?

Aromatherapy can be an effective and enjoyable natural therapy with which we can improve the health and wellbeing of our pets. Just as other natural therapies for pets like Acupuncture, Myotherapy, Homeopathy, Physiotherapy, Bowen Therapy, Chiropractic and Herbalism are well enjoyed by dogs, cats and even horses, so too is Aromatherapy.

The similarities in physiology between humans and these animals make Aromatherapy a good choice when we want to choose a natural health solution and avoid synthetic hormones, chemicals and medications. In the hands of a professional, Pet Aromatherapy is totally natural, gentle, safe and effective.

While it is very easy to treat dogs and horses with Aromatherapy, special attention must be paid when treating cats. Their livers do not metabolise some substances and so it is important we take a good look at all the substances we have in the homes we share with cats, not just the Essential Oils we are using. Please take a moment to assess the chemicals you have under your kitchen sink, in your laundry, in your bathroom and importantly, any synthetic fragrance based deodorisers, stick diffusers, wall mounted air fresheners and scented candles you may have in your home. You can read more about cats and Aromatherapy in the cat section of our FAQs.

Why use Aromatherapy for animals?

You’d use Aromatherapy for animals for three main reasons:

  1. Aromatherapy, professionally administered, has such a marked and beneficial impact on the health and wellbeing of animals.
  2. Professional Aromatherapy improves animals’ health and wellbeing – naturally free from chemicals or medications.
  3. Animals have a natural tendency toward plants i.e. cats and dogs eating grass for their digestive health, cats and dogs self medicating by rolling in lavender or mint in the garden

The use of Aromatherapy with animals is a complex, varied and highly individual process that works on multiple levels; mental, physical, emotional, conditional.

Despite the rise of the practice of Aromatherapy by the general public, driven by pyramid scheme Essential Oil companies like Doterra and Young Living, qualified and professional Aromatherapy is still your safest option when seeking the benefits of Essential Oils.Because cats and dogs have exceptional senses of smell, Aromatherapy is a very effective therapy for them and also demands respect. Only use Essential Oils recognised as being safe for cats and dogs and remember to keep the concentration far, far lower than you would for humans. And us humans don’t need as much Essential Oils as some folks are using either!
