I recently got to be on the Liv Fearlessly vlog with Rebecca Plautz. We went much deeper than I have publicly gone before into some of my dark days and the things that have helped me overcome them. Check it out!
One question I get from time-to-time is the correct essential oils to be using with pets and other animals. This is a very TRICKY question as many essential oils are truly dangerous, if not deadly, for our animals friends. However, aromatherapy can also be an effective therapy for animals, provided the products used are safe, effective, and pure.
Today I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with fellow Aromatherapist, Vicki Rae Thorne, who is the owner of Earth Heart Inc., a company that supplies aromatherapy products for pets. She is a wealth of knowledge in this area.
If you are interested in Aromatherapy for your animals, I would highly recommend her products. Take a look!
I recently got to participate in a survey of professional aromatherapists for Aromaculture Magazine's blog. Take a look at all of this great information from all of these essential oil experts.
What is an aromatherapy consultation like? What should you expect, and why might you want to have one?
An aromatherapy consultation is an opportunity for an Aromatherapist to get to know you and your particular health goals and challenges in detail. In my case, I am going to ask you a lot of questions about your health and your health history, your lifestyle, your habits, your nutrition and exercise, details about any medications, and many other facets of your health. In my case, I also assess you, the client, from an Ayurvedic (traditional Indian medicine) standpoint to determine any imbalances that may be happening in the body. I also use knowledge from TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to further hone in on what lifestyle shifts and what essential oils may be supportive and helpful to you.
Aromatherapy is a very holistic art. It is meant to encompass all of the person--body, mind, soul, and spirit. I have consulted with people who had skin issues and I have consulted with people who wanted to enhance their own spiritual practices. I have consulted with those who wanted and needed more accountability for making healthy choices. I have helped folks improve their relationship with food and with positive, nutritional choices.
Along with all of that, depending on your goals, you will be sent home (or receive after the fact, depending on the situation) with several custom synergies and perhaps some ready-made materials that I already have on sale through my apothecary.
As an example, in the photo above, these were the materials recently provided to a client who was seeking to feel more grounded and less anxious. She also had some chronic aches and pains she was hoping to find more comfort for. So, she was sent home with my ready-made @Ease Serum for the achy muscles and then two other serums--one for energy and one to help her feel more grounded and in control.
About two weeks after your initial consultation, you will have either an in-person or video chat follow up with me to see how you are doing with your goals and how your serums are working for you.
So, while Aromatherapists do not diagnose, treat, or cure any disease, we are going to help you find more balance overall in your life. And the body itself is the miracle--when we can support it--people often report finding more success with their goals, whatever they may be.
