Essential oils and pets

I have received an enquiry about essential oils and pets. Since I have never owned pets, I cannot speak from experience, but I share the following with you.

· Upon the enquiry that I have received, I have asked Soil – the essential oil company for their views.

· Here is their answer:

“Animals and essential oils is a tricky one. Animals’ sense of smell is far more sensitive than ours and therefore use of oils should be limited and controlled. Some oils are considered toxic for animals. It is recommended to keep the area well-ventilated and allow the animals the opportunity for easy exit if they do not like the smell.

· 3.If there is ever a negative reaction or unusual behaviour from the pet, then you should stop use immediately. Just as in humans, animals can react differently to the same oil.”


I would like to add that animals are also much smaller than we are – so if we bear in mind that some medications are worked out per body weight, it would be logical to bear that in mind for animals as well.

I recommend that you look up some articles on the internet, and/or consult your vet if in doubt.

It also important that rooms where you use essential oils are well-ventilated – also for humans.

The oils are efficient in very small dosages.

3-5 drops in a diffuser for 20 minutes will already have a therapeutic effect.

Remember that when you switch off the diffuser, there will still be some molecules in the air for a while.
