Loving Touch with Essential Oils

0 Posted by - May 26, 2011 - Archive

Whether you are the friend of a furry, feathered, or scaly being, you probably enjoy holding and petting your companion animal. This type of loving touch can also help keep your pet’s internal terrain inhospitable to pathogens.

Daily “oil petting” for general prevention and promotion of well-being is simple. Incorporate these six steps into your daily routine:

  1. Choose one of these five fabulous oils for your best friend:
  • Peace & Calming® essential oil blend helps relax the nervous system and can release tension.
  • Sacred Mountain™ is grounding and stabilizing. This blend is filled with the fragrance of outdoors and brings unexpected gifts. One day a neighbor’s dog came over joyfully and sat by me in the street. Her owner commented, “She never goes to anyone!” That is the wonder of Sacred Mountain! I applied one drop an hour before and then I was this dog’s best friend.
  • Idaho Tansy is one of the most versatile oils for animals. It is purifying, cleansing, regenerating, repels flies, and lots more!
  • Lavender essential oil is a wonderful relaxant and is great for healing wounds.

2. Take a deep breath and let go of everything except the present moment. Know that you are in the presence of another wonderful soul clothed in a different form. With full focus, know that you are relating from your heart and soul to theirs.

3. Trust your intuition and quiet all mental chatter. Place one drop of your chosen oil in your palm and gently rub your hands together. Do not rub too much or there will be very little oil left for your friend.

4. Pet your pet. Keep in mind that this is a healing act, born of your love for life and the life of those you touch.

5. Close your eyes and let your hands do the work. Trust that your hands are being guided by the creator of all life.

6. Apply the oil with gentle strokes anywhere you believe it is needed. Belief is born of intellect, knowledge, and intuition. Focus on the daily use of Young Living essential oils for your friend. You will discover the joy of a deeper bond as your best friend experiences your love as a healing gift.

Wishing worlds of success to you and your companion,

    OH>> the reason i do not suggest to put your dog in his kennel for the naughty dog spot is that it can them make his kennel a bad place to be…

    ALL the oils are Theraputic grade…so you may ingest them…tho ther may be some oils that are not good for cats…you would need to investigate that…lavander is good for all pets…

    As far as your dog bitting you…try a news paper rolled up and not your hand…also…if the dog is naughty…give him a time out naughty dog spot…you know sorta like putting your kid in the corner…lol…it works! I am a pet groomer so i have metal kennels that i put my dog in when he has been naughty…like not wanting to poddy outside was a real biggie…so evertime he would not go for me outside…instead of reprimanding or yelling or spanking him,,,,i just put him in that cage…and not his actual kennel….so maybe like the bathroom or something like that…give it a try…but the key to all training is consistency….now my dog goes poddy almost on command!

    are these safe for cats, who lick themselves constantly?

      research each oil as not all oils are good for all animals, and even humans some oils need to be used with a carrier oil.. such as lemon or oregano… it is such strong oils that they can burn skin. So do your research :) there are also 3 different grades of oils

      Perfume Grade- definately NOT one at all for use but to smell pretty

      Grade A- this oil comes to you pre cut with an oil already so it is cheaper to purchase. and in most cases is not ingestable…. so careful with Grade A oils

      Thereputic oils- the purest form you can purchase and also all are able to injest. These are the best as then you can use a carrier oil of your own choosing. I have used Olive Oil and it seems to work really well with out disturbing the integrity of the oils

      Hope that helps :)

    I have a question about oils on dogs. Our dog suffers from occasional bouts of colitis. What would work on him…I was thinking Di-Gize, either on him or in his food? Also we have a bit of trouble once in a while with him being a bit agressive with us especially when we ‘scold’ him for being naughty (he is 18 months old so sometimes that seems like alot!) He has bitten me twice. We just got him nuetered in the hopes that would help. How would Peace and Calming work on him and how do I use it on a 40lb dog? I appreciate your time and knowledge !Thanks so much

    I know lavender will help with separation anxiety, but what do you suggest for stress and allergies manifesting on the skin in hot spots and itching?

    • DeAnna Haagenson October 25, 2012 - 2:22 am Reply

      i suggest still using lavender… it is healing for hot spots.. i just used this on a dog i was boarding that had hot spots..when his owner brought him in whe had pills for him to take for his excessive itching, and a cone as he had a hot spot on the side of his neck… so i used Lavender theriputic oil on the hot spot and dabbled a little along his spine and the next night he was not itching :) I hope that helps
