We began using aromatherapy with our beagle Jake around 15 years ago. Jake was a tough puppy; rescued as a stray from the streets of the Bronx.  Although he was beautiful and a smart 1yr. old, Jake arrived with a complete set of emotional baggage. Over time we customized a series of essential oil blends and sprays that helped Jake adjust to his new environment and find balance and well-being in his new home. The aromatherapy was quite effective in making us a much happier family. 

So after years of study and making blends for friends and family we are now introducing Kiki and Friends, named after our terrier rescue and CEO, Kiki. We’re excited to offer this new line of products.  It’s a new company, with a fresh approach, that we hope can help you and your pet.
