There are only a few places in the world I source my essential oils, and Zoopharmacognosey supplies from, to work with the animals. The oils MUST be food grade and organic.
If you do not know how to use the oils with animals please reach out or purchase Caroline Ingraham’s book. It is a specific process, a little bit of a dance actually to get the body healed. It is all about the animal dictating the process. It is not about HUMAN knows best and pushing the process. Loss of trust and potential damage to the body will occur if the animal is not followed; or the healing process will not be supported. Please take this very seriously.
Animal Self-Medication by Caroline Ingraham
This is a MUST HAVE for all homes with animals. Caroline’s work is amazing as it is all about honouring he being and following their direction. Quality of oils is crucial for working with animals, not every company produces quality. The companies below are the only companies I currently source from.
Gut Health Guide and Essential Oil Protocol by Dr. Eric Zielinski
Really great information about leaky gut, stomach acid, diet and essential oil use for humans. Diffusing is mentioned a lot – careful this is not good around animals where they cannot escape the smell, you could do damage to their systems as they would be forced to process “medicine” they do not need.
Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals by Kristen Leigh Bell
This book provides fabulous information about the oils. What the author does not know is how animals SELECT the oils. This is very important to understand. All the recipes are not required as the animas will direct you how to use the oils on their terms, what oil and where on the body, as spelt out in Caroline Ingraham’s book above.
The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy by Valerie Ann Woodward
This is the encyclopedia of essential oils for humans. Fabulous information.
Image below: Our Yantha, processing her oils, selected by her, on her terms always. She is a master healer. Years ago, she could barely process for a second much less have them this close to her, and be so relaxed. Healing is always on the individual’s terms, it is not to be rushed by another.
