Essential Oils

True, unadulterated Essential Oils have been scientifically proven to be anti-infectious, antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, antifungal, antiparasitic, and truly life enhancing in every way!*

Essential Oils are a safer and more effective alternative to the use of toxic home cleaners, disinfectants, dangerous over-the-counter medicines and prescriptions and in some cases may even eliminate the need for antibiotic products.* Fun and easy to work with, they are anti-infectious, preventative, and promote physical and psychological well-being.*







*Remember- Essential Oils are not meant to replace proper medical care!

Essential Oils are very powerful and highly concentrated and should only be used in very small amounts. Before using an Essential Oil, become familiar with its properties, method of application, toxicity, precautions, and contraindications.

The use of essential oils is becoming more widely accepted in the Veterinary world!

The use of Essential Oils and aromatherapy falls within the integrative medicine category and is gaining popularity and acceptance among animal practitioners of all types due to the gentleness, and superior results physically, emotionally, and energetically; all while being safe when used as directed.

CAUTION:  EO’s should never be given to pets internally! It is recommended to be sure rooms with diffusers are properly ventilated, preferably while the cat is not present, as they have highly sensitive metabolic systems. Do not use with fish and reptiles-pH levels & aquatic environment; birds-  respiratory & metabolic systems; or rodents- not sufficient studies to prove safety.


The use of herbs has been the traditional way of healing, for thousands of years before the last century. They played a major role in day-to-day life, not only for culinary purposes but also aromatherapy & a vast range of healing methods, ceremonies and rituals. Only during the last 100 yrs has mankind synthetically produced medicines and attempted to replicate the therapeutics qualities of plants found all over the world.

Always seek the guidance of your healthcare provider and/or a reputable source, certified herbalist or aromatherapist, especially if currently taking prescription meds, are pregnant or nursing.

Although, generally considered safe…Please do your research as bio-individuality, as well as varying influences & conditions, will affect everyone differently. Some herbs will alter the effectiveness/absorption of medications, in some cases, causing serious reactions. Herbs are not a one-for-all solution, keep safety first for yourself, for your children and for your pets!

Here is a great resource, take a look!

What is an herb?

An herb is defined as any plant or plant part that is used for its therapeutic/medicinal value, scent, flavor or dietary benefits.

Herbalism is both an art and a science. The study and integration of herbs for promoting health, preventing, alleviating and treating illness or dis-ease is applied by an Herbalist; which is someone who has dedicated their studies to learning about and working with medicinal herbs, as well as, traditional remedies.

You may be most familiar with the herbs and spices used in the kitchen, or even some “folk remedies” used by your grandmother!
