Aromatherapy Benefits for Animals

Aromatherapy has been around for centuries. It is commonly used in skin care products, to flavor foods and disinfect hospitals. Humans have become accustomed to nice, refreshing and relaxing scents surrounding us in the bathroom, the kitchen and workplace. Well, aromatherapy is not just for humans, it is equally beneficial for animals too. Animals have a powerful and heightened sense of smell and respond very quickly to aromas. Scent to an animal can dictate if they are in a safe environment or if they are in danger. Historically, we have seen animals employed to sniff out the scent of missing people and drugs. Their heightened sensitivity to smell is an example of the significance and importance scent may play on emotions, behavior and physical concerns.
