While not a replacement for Veterinary Medicine, Essential Oils can be empowering!
They can put the healing power of nature into you the people’s hands! Instead of just in the hand of scientists! EOs can help reduce the need for acute/ crisis care and aid in the treatment of chronic conditions.
The current definition of aromatherapy is “ the therapeutic use of pure, unadulterated essential oils, hydrosols, and other fragrant plant materials for holistic health treatment”
An essential oil is a VOLATILE substance obtained from the leaves, flowers, roots, bark, seeds, or fruit of a plant via steam distillation, carbon dioxide extraction, solvent distraction, or manual expression.
EOs are NON oily, but are EXTREAMLY concentrated, and HIGHLY aromatic
Each EO contains specific benefits to which the body and mind respond
Ex: antiseptic, immune stimulant, anti viral/bacterial/fungal/organism, cancer fighting, and more
Aromatherapy DOES NOT mean ‘smells good’
Most of the products labeled ‘aromatherapy’ in stores that smell good are ARTIFICIAL fragrances.
Aromatherapy is THERAPEUTIC so not all of them smell good!
How Do EOs work on the body?
•Scent triggers the limbic (the emotional center) of the brain- this is the most
Primitive portion of the brain.
•Animals may lack some of the complex emotional reactions we experience
From smell- in some ways this simplifies their response to scent.
•Scent therefore works at a primarily physical level in animals.
•Example- antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antipruritic Sedative, stimulating and regenerative (to varying physical levels)
