Aromatherapy is the use of concentrated essential oils to treat various diseases.


Some of these essential oils are currently used in human medicine in the management of chronic pain, depression, anxiety, some cognitive disorders, insomnia, and stress related disorders.


Research shows the effectiveness of using essential oils such as lavender and chamomile in improving animal welfare.


As well as other types of environmental and social enrichment, the use of the appropriate olfactory stimulation with essential oils seems a promising aid in preventing or reducing stress and in behavioural management in dogs. It may become part of the routine management for veterinarians.

During the webinar, we are going to explore the use of essential oils in behavioural medicine with a scientific but also practical point of view.
