Essential Oil for Dogs and Cats 

Pet World.

We all love our pets.  Many people have grown to love essential oils. The question is, can we mix the two loves?

The answer is YES!

Essential oils are a great benefit in the human world, and it can also be beneficial in the pet world.

Keep in mind that your pet’s sense of smell is 40 times greater than a human.

Use precautions to avoid skin irritations, allergies, and other unwanted side effects.

Tips & Tricks:

Essential oils straight out of the bottle can be too severe for your furry friend. Regularly dilute the essential oil(s) with a carrier oil, then rub onto the fur.

Add 1-2 drops of the oil of your choice into a diffuser. Release the aroma every 15 minutes.

Store all oils in hard to reach places from curious critters.
