Essential info on Essential Oils!

I received a question about the safety of essential oils and pets!

First of all, let me say that I am a HUGE believer in using natural products whenever possible! I believe this for people and animals alike!

That said, there are a lot of differing opinions on the safety and effectiveness of essential oils and pets.

Here are my tips:

1-Always check with your veterinarian first and foremost. Some pets may be more prone to different allergies, ailments, etc…

2-Do your research (ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE CATS). Some essential oils are said to be safe while others should ALWAYS be avoided.

Below are some websites to help you with this decision:
