Companion Animal “Heart Talk” with Young Living Essential Oils (Part 1)

6 April 19, 2011 - Archive

What blessings our beloved companion animals bring to our lives! Yet as we rejoice in the bond between us, we also recognize a deep responsibility for their welfare. One of the simplest, most powerful methods of enjoying our relationships with our pets is to keep them healthy, happy, and calm. Not every animal will be quietly calm; some will be bounding across the rooms. However, if your pet’s nervous system is balanced, he or she will be free of inner conflict and able to enjoy your shared bond.

Heart Talk is the unspoken sharing of love with our best friends in an array of furs, feathers, scales, and more; it’s a way of achieving even greater bonds with those we have rescued, adopted, or bought. Young Living’s Peace & Calming® essential oil blend can helps us achieve this wonderful sharing of emotions and assist our dogs, cats, horses, and more to feel at peace.

Keep in mind two important factors when using essential oils with animals:

1. Humans have about 5 million olfactory epithelial cells; cats have nearly 100 million and dogs can have up to 220 million of these smell sensors!

2. Because of their incredible sense of smell, the effect of essential oils on our companions is more powerful than it is on us. We only need to run a Young Living TheraPro™ Diffuser for 5 minutes on low and off for 20 minutes to assist our pets. For topical applications, dilute the oil according to species, weight, and age. For example, a horse does not need a diluted application, but a cat would need a 75 percent dilution, or more, depending on age and weight.

For an animal’s first introduction to essential oils, simply take one drop of Peace & Calming in your hands, rub them together, and then pet your friend as you normally would (keeping away from eyes and inner ears). This is the first step to helping your companion move toward a very healthy and peaceful feeling. You will notice how peaceful you feel, too!

Consider using Young Living essential oils in your car when traveling with your pet. Keep a Travel Fan Diffuser or an unbleached coffee filter in the vent for just these purposes. Three or four drops of Peace & Calming will be all you need. This is a perfect approach for going to the veterinarian’s office!

Watch for Part 2 of this blog post later in the month where we will focus on the ABCs of Heart Talk!

Wishing worlds of success to you and your companion,

    My mum has put many drops (2-3) of this straight onto the head of my dog and I’m wondering if this is okay and won’t harm her??

      Hello Madison, When using essential oils with animals, it is recommended to dilute according to the size of the animal. For more information on how to utilize the Young Living® products for your animals, please visit Essential Oils and Pets: A Quick How-To. If you have further concerns, we recommend that you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained veterinarian with knowledge and experience with essential oils use on animals.

    I have used Young Living products for myself for several years; however, just this month, my 42 lb Australian Shepherd was diagnosed with epilepsy. She is currently on anti-seizure medicine, but she has had two seizures since introduction to the medication. My question is this – I have read that during the seizure, I can put a drop or two of Frankincense on my hand and hold it down to where she can smell it during the onset of the seizure ( the aura phase). Will peace and calming help as well. The seizures only last about 15 – 30 seconds, and they aren’t the grand mal that she was having. She is so disoriented when she comes out of them, and I would rather use essential oils with her before herbal supplements, which might cause more harm than good. Thanks!

    We have many dogs walk through the Saturday morning Farmers’ Market in downtown Venice, FL and occasionally one becomes agitated. The one drop of Peace & Calming really works!!! There is also a dog-rescue booth across from our Young Living booth and we have “rescued” the owner of that booth by calming all of the pets that are on display in his booth each week.
