What is your dog trying to say?

Understand what your dog is trying to tell you by using the shared aromatic language of essential oils and other plant remedies, and learn how to improve their behavior and physical health.


Achieve truly remarkable results by allowing your dog to be in control of selecting its essential oils and plant extracts through an understanding of self-medication. Dogs know what and how much is needed to bring themselves back into health even before symptoms manifest, and through their choices, you will gain an insight into their true needs.


In this workshop, you will explore some of the secrets behind many common and extreme behaviors …it might not be what you think!


Animals in the wild have self-medicated throughout history and domestication has not interfered with the mechanisms involved in this innate behavior. It is vital for the survival of all species and is hard-wired into all living animals, from mammals to birds to insects
