Essential oils with animals = essential fun!

Frogworks is a company that offers natural healing with plants and essential oils for both you and your animals. Last week, I had the opportunity to visit Frances. I was there to film her working with animals to create a video for use in one of her educational classes.

It was one of those beautiful early summer days, the perfect setting for filming near Roxborough State Park. We began by filming Frances in her studio mixing her oils and then working on her dogs, Oscar and Indie. Indie seemed to take an instant like to me and my video camera (she was a natural!), and then it was the turn of the cats.

After filming Frances working with her dogs and then her cats, we moved onto some of her horses. Well, you can just see from the images below how much fun Maynard was having … what a character!

It was a great afternoon and so interesting to see the reaction of the animals to the different oils, and of course the interaction between Frances and her animals! To learn more, visit


The perfect environment to learn, relax and rejuvenate.
