Safe Use of Essential Oils with Pets 

If your pet has an illness/condition or is under veterinary treatment please speak to your medical specialist before using Essential Oils on your pet. It is extremely important that you use a "Less is More" approach and dilute the oils to the recommended ratios before using them with your pet. Read the essential oil bottle recommendations and directions for use, if it does not specify that it can be used on pets the instructions are for the use with humans, precede with caution and follow the companies recommended guidelines.

Always monitor their responses and behaviour and never diffuse essential oils around caged birds. When using a room diffuser open a door for them to leave if they choose too. Before applying undiluted essentials oils to your pet seek the advice from an experienced holistic veterinarian and it is really important when first introducing essential oils to your pet, they associate an aroma with a positive experience.

Happy, Healthy & Harmonious Homes for People & Pets

Today many homes are inundated with multiple chemical and synthetic aromas, contributing to physical and emotional health concerns of our pets. Animals have powerful scent receptors that make them extremely responsive to scents in their environment. The fragrance of a diffused essential oil can directly affect the emotional state, health condition, and alertness of household pets effectively calming and alleviating stress.

Making small, positive, daily changes in the home can have a notable impact on the long-term well-being of your family and pets. Everything in the environment that touches your pet’s skin or fur, will be absorbed into their bodies. This is particularly important as the skin is the largest external organ of the body, providing protection from injury, damage and disease. Dogs are extremely sensitive as their epidermis (skin) is only 3 to 5 cells thick, a lot thinner and more sensitive than humans which is around 10 to 15 cells thick.


​Essential oils have the capacity to transform our environment. They provide a dual benefit by assisting us both emotionally and physically, promoting overall good health and well-being. Essential oils are so much more than delightful aromas!................The results will amaze you.
