This morning, thanks to the efforts of Sandy Guevara, a student at the courses I gave in Mexico, a large box of books set off for Mexico City. Sandy coordinated all the requests for copies of "Libre Elección". Without her tremendous help it would probably have proved difficult to organise everyone. Thank you, Sandy!
No excuse now! With this beautiful copper still I hope to be able to distill some essential oils from the plants available in the garden. I had been toying with this idea for some time but yesterday we bit the bullet and went searching. As these still have traditionally been used for distilling "mountain dew" [...]
The Online Certification Course in Zoopharmacognosy will become available in September. The exact date will be posted nearer the time. Preparation of all the teaching material for the the eight modules and fifty-one lessons covering the practical side of holding a session as well as botany, the basic science of essential oils, theories of zoopharmacognosy [...]
My book about essential oils and other substances that animals frequently choose in zoopharmacognosy sessions has just been released. The book is in Spanish, but I wanted to share this news with you all. There are virtually no books in Spanish on this subject so I hope that "Libre Elección" (Free Choice) will help to [...]
A new recording has now been added to our Learning Page. Many homes these days have several animals of the same or different species sharing the space. Sometimes problems of different kinds can arise. In this webinar we look at some of these and then see how applied zooopharmacognosy and Tellington TTouch may provide us [...]
I am currently taking a course on fundamental organic chemistry in relation to essential oils. In the latest lesson a piece of information surfaced which I thought would be of great interest to a lot of people. One of the common constituents of essential oils examined was beta-caryophyllene. Some notable therapeutic properties of beta-caryophyllene are [...]
This is a first - for me at least! I have been offering live webinars on a variety of topics but not everyone is free to participate at the appointed time, so I felt there was a need to make these webinars available on a permanent basis. Here is the first one! The topic of [...]
The Pausa with a capital P is a simple but highly effective "tool" in all learning processes. When we pause, we give the animal the chance to process and assimilate the recent experience in order to learn from it. Sometimes we will find that after the pause a task which previously seemed impossible will simply [...]
In this interesting post below you can learn how to make rose water either by distillation for a more concentated water or by infusion. As rose water is one of the products that we use often in zoopharmacognosy, it is well worth taking a look and trying this out. https://www.mnn.com/food/recipes/blogs/how-make-rose-water
