This course teaches you how to use aromatics (essential oils, hydrosols and herbal oils) to support animal well-being. If you have never used essential oils or natural remedies for your animals, this course will give you a thorough understanding of how and why they work. If you already use essential oils, this is the info you need to use them safely and effectively with animals. If you are working with animals you will be able to incorporate aromatics to enhance any other modality. The AAW system has been used successfully with all species, from guinea pigs to elephants.

How to use Animal Self-selection

Aromatic Animal Wellness allows animals to select the aromatics they need to support healing. In this lesson we will explore how and why this works, how to offer the oils for self-selection and how to recognise common responses in a variety of animals.



AAW- 3

Hydrosols & Herbal oils

Essential oils are one part of our aromatic pharmacy, but there are other aromatic extracts that can broaden and deepen what we are able to achieve. This lesson expands your tool kit and teaches you how to use hydrosols, herbal oils, clays and gels.



AAW - 4

Making Potions

Making your own natural lotions and potions is a really fun part of aromatic animal care. In the AAW system, topical application is always secondary. However there are times that a topical application can relieve pain or discomfort and speed up the healing process.
