Paws & Aromas: Integrative Wellness with Essential Oils and Energy Medicine for Pets

Class recorded live in 2023
Totally Revised and Reformatted - Completely new curriculum

There is no other
 aromatherapy and pet training out there like this.  The information provided is a combination of my 40 years of working with animals (my own and also my clients) using essential oils (clinically and the self-modulation way), color therapy, herbs, homeopathy, botanical extracts, crystals, and energy medicine techniques. 

Each of these modalities is powerful all by itself, but when combined, well, it is nothing short of Magic.
