Aromatherapy is commonly known for its use by humans for well-being and health purposes. But did you know animals can benefit from aromatherapy too? In animals, aromatherapy helps them to reduce behavioural issues and physical conditions such as skin problems, rashes, itchiness, wounds, allergies, and much more.
How do they work?
As animals breathe in the fragrance of essential oils, the molecules are transported into the limbic system of the animal’s brain. Essential oils contain very powerful natural compounds that work in synergy with the brain and the body and its healing abilities. In addition, aromatherapy provides emotional benefits for our loved animals too but they must be used correctly. This is why in aromatherapy quality matters and here at Well Gel Products we pride ourselves in using top-quality ingredients, cruelty-free and eco-friendly.
