Whether you are caring for a dog, horse, cat, sheep, elephant or llama, essential oils (aromatherapy) can help you keep your animals healthy. You can use aromatic medicines (essential oil, hydrosols, herbal oils) for many common health problems, to keep stress levels down and to support immune response.
To ensure you keep your animal from harm follow these 2 simple guidelines:
- Always allow your animal to choose the oils he wants to use and guide you in their application
- Dilute essential oil well before use, they are potent medicines so, just as you would not use 4 ibuprofen when 1 will do the job, don’t use more oil than you absolutely need (for more info on using essential oils go here).
Watch this clip to see how these animals interact with the essential oil offered to them, and enjoy!
