Mobile Veterinary Essential Oil Therapy in Edmonds, WA
Dr. Justus uses essential oils therapy to not only assist in acupuncture treatments, but also to help manage various disease conditions.
Essential oils are an aromatic, volatile liquid within many plants. They are produced through a distillation process requiring large amounts of plant to distill out a very small volume of essential oil. The essential oil is quite concentrated- much more so than the dried form of the plant (as in herbal medicine).
Essential oils continue to be controversial in veterinary medicine. There is a lot of misinformation, especially on the internet, regarding toxicity, uses for oils, species on which to use oils, and more. However, through using only medical-grade oils and carefully diluting the oils as needed for animal use, Dr. Justus has not seen any negative reactions.
There are many different reasons to use essential oils in veterinary medicine- allergies, immune support, decreasing pain and inflammation, among others. Depending on your animal’s needs, essential oil therapy may be added to your animal’s treatment plan.
