Essential oils are well known for their wellness benefits and their benefits for our pets should not be overlooked. Due to their high vibrational frequencies they are known to work synergistically with the body, raising the electrical frequencies to create within the body an environment conducive for total wellness.
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs, and tress, through distillation. According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians were using essential oils thousands of years before Christ.
They are the oldest form of remedies and cosmetics known to man and were considered more valuable than gold. There are 188 references to essential oils in the Bible.
“Essential oils do not work to treat symptoms. They work to bring the body to balance. Therefore the same oils that can support hypothyroid will support hyperthyroid, as it is all about giving the body what it needs to come to balance.”~Frances Fuller, Fuller Life
All Essential Oils Are NOT Created Equal
It’s important to note that not all essential oils are created equal, especially when using them with animals. Essential oils have gotten a bad rap in years past due to inferior quality oils used and in many cases, caused harm to companion animals. Most of the essential oils that you find in the health food stores are filled with synthetic ingredients which afford the producer a greater yield making them more profitable. Essential oils are only regulated by the cosmetic industry which then allows for extreme liberty in labeling: allowing a label to state “100% organic” as long as just one ingredient in the process is organic.
When selecting an essential oil for your animal companion be sure to look for an essential oil with a food label – because whatever is put ON the body goes IN to the body. I personally only use and trust Young Living Essential Oils.
