Lecture Title: Aromatherapy for Dogs & Horses
We often talk about alternative/complimentary treatments for ourselves and our families, but how about the furry family members? (And I’m not talking about that weird uncle…) Essential oils can be a very effective tool to help our pets get healthy, stay healthy, and live better naturally. They can be easy to use, less expensive than vets and meds, no side effects, and animals seem to respond quickly. We’ll discuss how you can calm, work with breathing issues, assist arthritis, help skin issues, reduce separation anxiety, and much, much more.
