Aromatherapy For Dogs- 

Essential oils are a miracle of nature. These health promoting and life-sustaining aromatic liquids are extracted from plants, carefully preserving the wealth of natural constituents inside. Every plant has unique properties and benefits, making essential oils a safe, natural way to promote wellness for both our companion animals and ourselves.

Due to their high vibrational frequencies, Essential OIls are known to balance and harmonize the body’s organs and emotions; hence they bring balance and wellness, aid in detoxing, oxygenate the blood and enhance the immune system by creating an environment conducive for total wellness

Some people still have misconceptions about “aromatherapy” for animals — some of them still equate aromatherapy with scented candles or grooming products with synthetic oils.

Animal Aromatherapy is SO MUCH MORE than just making your dog smell good!

Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for therapeutic benefit. Aromatherapy has been used for centuries. When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.

Essential oils can also be absorbed by the skin.


What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs, and tress, through distillation.

According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians were using essential oils thousands of years before Christ. Aromatherapy offers so much more than just fragrance. Essential oils produce remarkable actions upon animals (and humans)  – and the actions are immediate, profound and long-lasting, positively affecting overall health and emotional well-being.

Many pet owners and animal care providers have turned to Pure, Therapeutic-Grade Essential Oils to use in place of toxic and harmful ingredients commonly found in pet products.




Many dog trainers throughout the nation, have turned to the use of high, quality essential oils to help clients with dogs that have anxiety issues, behavioral issues, fears, phobias and aggression.

Dogs that have had anxiety attacks during thunder storms or at the sound of fireworks, now rest peacefully throughout the night with essential oils being diffused in the room.

The first major nerve in the body that enters the brain, actually detects scent. That nerve — and the information it carries — connects directly to the base of the brain where immediate responses occur.  Emotions are strongly influenced by scent.

“Good smells”/fragrances calm and attract, while bad smells repel us and cause aggravation. Our companion animals, especially our dogs, use their sense of smell to gain all sorts of complex information from the environment and this information is then used to calculate and predict what states of energy and response they should adopt.

Essential oils and aromatherapy are useful aspects of naturopathic/true holisitc animal care. More and more people are becoming aware that animals noses assist their health, it becomes useful to learn a bit about the subject. And since animals and people are different, it is important to know how to properly use oils with companion animals so that we do not unwittingly harm them in the process. 

Essential Oils Enhance the Immune System

Every cell, tissue and organ within the body has its own vibratory resonance.

Pathogens have a low frequency. Pollutants – both particulate and radiation (EMF) – lower a healthy frequency. Processed and canned food having a frequency of zero can greatly diminish a person’s own frequency.

Even thoughts and feelings have a vibratory quality that forms a measurable frequency. A negative mental state can lower a person’s or animal’s frequency. The normally harmonious coherent frequencies of the body can easily go out of “tune” when ever our pets (or ourselves) experience physical or emotional stress. A blockage of the flow of life energy – characterized by inflammation, irritation and illness – can result. When disease and illness are present, they may manifest as chemical imbalances. But underlying this is an electromagnetic imbalance that has altered the specific vibrational frequencies of molecules, cells, tissues and organs within the body.

Properly “retuning” the body to its original frequency brings it into balance and restores its natural harmonic resonance – illness either doesn’t manifest or is resolved.

A substance with a higher frequency can raise a lower frequency due to the principle of entrainment – the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. This principle is key to understanding the effect essential oils can have on electromagnetic frequency.

How Do Essential Oils Work?

When parts of the body and/or mind become stressed or weakened, they are no longer vibrating at the correct frequency of wellness; in other words they are not vibrating at their prime (optimal) resonant frequency.

Dr. Royal R. Rife, a brilliant physician and scientist in the 1920’s, found that every health disorder has a frequency, and that certain high frequencies can can prevent further development of these disorders, by raising the body’s frequencies back into harmony/balance.

When the immune system and the organs that house it are weak and/or compromised, it is going to have a lower energy/vibrational frequency than a strong, vital immune system vibrates at.

Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest electrical/energetic frequency of any natural substance known to man and when used in conjunction with the laws of health/nature, they have the ability to create an environment in which dis-ease, cannot thrive.
