How do those we work with benefit from working with us?

At Animal Botanical we offer insight and long lasting changes that are effective and affordable. By utilising the locally available, energetic, earthly and scientific principles inherent in our world today, we can show you a number of herbal approaches that ensure long term wellness and a shift in thinking towards permanent enrichment and vitality. So there really is something for everyone.

Botanical Healing

Animals who are unwell or who have experienced periods of trauma, change or distress can hold anxiety and illness in much the same way we humans do.

Trauma and illness can cause your animal to behave in certain ways, display negative, repetitive or aggressive traits, show signs of pain and discomfort or generally just feel low and down in the dumps, unresponsive or frightened.

Animal Botanical is dedicated to helping these animals in the most effective and natural way possible.

Our aim is to help people understand the root causes of their animals discomfort, provide advice, heal, restore and revive. 

Just as nature intended animals are especially receptive to plant medicine. Able to work much more effectvely with plant medicine and essential oils than us humans. Their instincts and innate behaviours know precicely what they need and when. 



We do it for our animals...

For all those people who are aching to improve their animals health but do not know where to begin.

For all the people who are looking for change which is affordable and engaging with a system that encourages unity and interconnectedness.

For a world which is looking to understand traditional, seasonal relationships with the natural world and its bounty of abundance.

...we can help!
