What can you expect from immersing in the herbal journey for you and your animals?

At Animal Botanical, we understand the challenges you and your animals face when it comes to acute and chronic health issues, reactivity, trauma, and emotional well-being. We're here to provide the empathy, knowledge, and support you need to reverse these conditions and build resilience and vitality along the way. Let us help you achieve your long-term health goals for both you and your animals. 

We also recognise that herbal immersion is so much more than a health journey, especially for animals. Herbs are about enrichment, fun, play and togetherness. They help us bond to our animals and children in ways we may not have experienced before. 

Herbs help us open up the natural world and all its wonders not only for health but also for happiness.

We are a community, a tribe all seeking ways to improve our lives naturally with empathy, love and a big hearted smile.

Community, Support, Empowerment

Louise Spicer & Callie.

"I’m so glad that I joined Herbal Shenanigans, it’s opened my world and I love to be able to help Callie in every way I can. Keep doing what you’re doing Rachael, you’re amazing.....

It’s like you’re part of something so special and spiritual almost

You really feel that you’ve helped them help themselves. They trust you, connect with you and are content. It’s a gift to offer them and to share with them”


Return to health for your animals

Together we show you how the botanicals, the seasons and our animals connect. We seek in nature answers to dysfunctions and show you how to use herbs to heal.

We specialise in teaching an in depth and energetic understanding of the botanicals we can use daily. 

The healing journey is one that will bring back to balance the physical body, aid the release of emotional traumas and help transition through the spiritual planes. 


Knowledge on safe and effective herbs

We’ll mix it up: different tools, different herbs, different animals and different owners. Each herbal offering provides something unique to you. We provide the knowledge so you care for your animal in a guilt free, shame free space. Where the ethos of choice, enrichment and empowerment take precedent. Work with the herbs and facilitate the healing space while we provide the knowledge and support. We use the science while also acknowledging the energy, mystery and magic of herbal connection.

"My favourite thing was that incredible affirmation of my belief that nature is outstanding, but at levels I hadn't appreciated before. That nature provides exactly what is needed for health and wellbeing as the seasons change. Learning how the herbs growing suit the conditions our animals typically experience, blew my heart and mind wide open".

Laura Harbour

"I love what we are doing, I love its depth. And I know the more we get out there are do it, it will flow. But I think I want to go further with it all. You just inspire me so much! Doing this with you makes me want to change as a person, become more at one."
