Make Sure It’s The Good Stuff!
Most of what is found on the market is either ineffective or worse, cut with synthetic chemicals.
This is the brand I trust. They control the process of growing the plants, harvesting, distilling, testing and bottling. No other company owns their own farms.
These tips for essential oil use with animals are from the world renowned essential oil expert, D. Gary Young.
How Much Should I Use?
Most animals are more sensitive to the effects of the oils than humans.
Generally speaking, if you have never put oils on an animal before, you should start carefully, applying them only to the feet, paws or hooves first. Stay away from the head and nose area.
In the cases of cats and small dogs, essential oils should always be diluted before applying, because they are actually MORE sensitive to the biochemicals in the oils than humans.
Once your animals is familiar with essential oils, dilution may not be necessary.
The amount for small animals like cats and small to medium size dogs: 1-3 drops each time applied.
For larger animals like large dogs, apply 6 drops.
Apply on their paws where the absorption is very fast.
Or, sprinkle a few drops on the spine and then massage into skin, just like with humans.
Which Oils? There are many options:
When the Animal is Jittery and Resists ~
If you have a high-spirited, jittery animal that won’t be still to receive the application, apply Peace & Calming and/or Valor on yourself first.
As you approach the animal, it will react it perceives the aroma. Kneel down or squat beside the animal and remain still for several minutes, so that it can become accustomed to the smell. As the animal breathes in the fragrances, it will become calmer and easier to manage.
