some of our customers send us holiday letters and photos of their pets – that connection is appreciated.”


Vicki is kept busy receiving orders nearly every day, many from referrals or reputable media sources – that kind of net- working and connection, says Vicki, lets her know her prod- ucts are helping people solve every day problems with their pets.


Genie in a Bottle icki Rae Thorne


Powered by Plants Vicki Rae Thorne loves creating things that make others feel good, espe- cially when plants are involved.


“Plants benefit us in so many ways – food and beverages, fabric and shelter, a wide range of medicines, from herbal teas, tinctures and essential oils to prescription drugs,” ex- plains Vicki, whose company is called Earth Heart.


“I am honored when I have a chance to teach others about the power of plants, and to help families work with simple, affordable, safe and effective remedies that can benefit the whole family.”


Thunderstruck by Results


It brightens her day, emphasizes Vicki, when a customer calls to share a story about how one of her products has helped a beloved pet.


“It can be that a ritual misting of Canine Calm helped keep a previously terrified dog stay calm during a thunderstorm or fireworks, or using Guard Well helped a dog stop chewing off fur because of chronic itching and soothed sore, irritated skin; that Buzz Guard helped the whole family enjoy their summer hike in the woods, or how Travel Calm kept the dog from getting car sick for the first time ever!”


“The love people have for their pets and their willingness to take the time to call or email their stories to us, is touching;


“In 1999,” explains Vicki, “a kennel owner asked if I could make something to help calm the canine visitors in her kennel, especially during feeding time and when new animals arrived. Many of the dogs missed their families and experienced anxi- ety, agitation, anger, and depression. I formulated what is now Canine Calm, and it was effective in calming the visiting dogs from day one!


The kennel still diffuses Canine Calm in both the reception and boarding areas, and the staff can tell when the diffusers are low because the dogs become agitated and noisy again! The kennel 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. They wanted to take that same calm home with them, so Vicki started making the mists.


Under the Influence


Vicki’s BDF (best dog friend), Lucky, has had a big influence on continuing to market her products. “As a hurricane survi- vor, he was terrified of storms, and it was wonderful to see how Canine Calm helped him relax more and more over time. Lucky has been a ‘test dog’ for other Earth Heart products, and has given ‘4 Paws Up’ to all of them,” says Vicki.


Proudly, she adds, “Earth Heart uses only pure essential oils that have been sourced from the most reputable growers and distillers worldwide. Everything that goes into our products is family friendly – that includes you, your children, and your furry friends.”
