In this podcast, she talks about the special qualities of dogs and how, if we let them, they can help us appreciate some of the wondrous little things on our planet.

She has lots of examples of amazing successes in treating dogs with the use of natural remedies.

Earth Heart and Vicki Thorne: Aroma Therapy for Dogs on the “My Doggie Says…” Show

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Earth Heart™ Inc. has a long-standing reputation for providing quality wellness products using pure essential oils Photo by The Courier-News Sun-Times Mediaand other plant-based ingredients.

Products are developed by Vicki Rae Thorne, certified aromatherapist and master herbalist.

Vicki founded Earth Heart in 1996 to help others learn how to use herbs and aromatherapy as an integral part of everyday health. She is a member of the Alliance of International Aromatherapists and the American Herbalist Guild. Products are developed according to customer need and their impact on the whole family…including pets.

Over 10 years ago, Vicki was approached by a kennel owner who wanted help with calming her canine visitors. The dogs experienced a wide range of emotions from being anxious or angry, agitated or depressed, and they all missed their families.

The formulation now known as Canine Calm™ was developed to diffuse in the kennel, and it worked from day one. Customers noticed that their dogs were calmer when they left the kennel, and didn’t fret so much when it was time to go back.

This same kennel has been successfully using Canine Calm since the spring of 2000. When kennel customers wanted to take the product home, aromatherapy mists were developed as an affordable ready-to-use remedy.

Earth Heart continues to develop remedies that are simple, safe, effective and smell good. Customers appreciate our aromatherapy remedies that are designed with the same loving care you give your dog.

Giving back is a major part of the Earth Heart brand providing donations to over 30 rescues, shelters and other charitable organization in 2010. Featured in Dog Fancy, Modern Dog, and listed as one of the Top 100 Best Dog Products and Wellness Products of 2010 by Fido Friendly Magazine, Earth Heart products have been recommended by dog lovers, trainers, veterinarians, groomers, and kennel owners.
