Pets + Essential Oils
As much as I consider my dogs (Oliver & Lemon) part of the family, the reality is animals have different chemistry then we do. Every pet is different, just like every human, therefore their reactions also differ to essential oils.
According to APCC (ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center), using an oil diffuser for a short time period in a secured area— one that your dog or cat cannot access—is not likely to be an issue.
Remember - The compounds present in essential oils are powerful, and very minute amounts of essential oils can have powerful biological effects on every system of the body.
Oils to Avoid:
- Tea Tree
- Citrus Oils (Lemon, Lime, Sweet Orange)
We recommend discussing any use of essential oils with your veterinarian prior to topical use.
