One of my favorite topics as of late is essential oils. Now I know what you may be thinking, it’s a bit farfetched to expect an oil to do anything outside of cooking and being well, oily, and you couldn’t be more wrong. Essential oils deserve a category for themselves when it comes to alternative medicine, and they are quickly carving that spot out. If we go back to the roots of modern medicine, we’ll find that it all started with Hippocrates and his theory that disease came from our environment, not from superstition or displeased gods. The first medicines came from plants, herbs, and spices. Why are we then surprised when essential oils, basically the life blood of plants, have such healing properties?
The best part about the oils is that they are 100% natural, no additives, no toxins, nothing. They come from what makes these plants survive, the life blood, and with that comes great healing properties. The premise behind oils has to do with the frequency of the body, frequency of the oils, and creating an environment where the immune system functions at a high enough frequency to prevent sickness and/or to heal disease faster. For more information and details on oils, I always consult Jill Tack of the Pet Beastro as she is my residential expert naturopath. I will continue to post about various oils that can help your animal heal and function at an optimum.
This issue I’d like to focus on lavender. Now I know you’ve heard of the plant lavender, the color lavender, the smell lavender, but perhaps you hadn’t heard of lavender oil. Lavender in particular has amazing properties that works well for calming and healing. Does your animal have aggression issues? Anxiety? Lavender should be your go to. What about open wounds? Any bites or scratches? Allergies or skin issues? Lavender can help with that too. How about dandruff? Sleeping issues? Lavender is your man!
At this point I think I’ve made it crystal clear how much lavender essential oil can do for you and your animal, all that’s left is for you to try it and see the difference it makes all on your own. No need to take my word for it, look at the research and be impressed all on your own. The only thing I caution is purchased an essential oil that is not of the highest quality. I recommend Be Young Essential Oils, they can be purchased through a representative or at certain natural shops.
