This is a brief intro for people who are apprehensive about using oils on their pets. I only use Young Living Essential Oils on my cats. For many years I was scared to use oils on my cats because of all the negative information I read. I started to find more and more testimonials from Young Living essential oil users who were having great results with the oils. The difference is the high quality and purity of these oils.
Young Living carefully selects seeds and follows them through planting, harvesting, distillation, and bottling. This is called Seed to Seal. www.seedtoseal.com They use low pressure, low temperature distillation without chemicals. The land used is pristine. Every batch is tested for quality in house and by an independent lab to confirm the oil’s target constituents. These constituents can vary based on climate, soil, time harvested, and other factors.
Essential Oils are the life blood of the plant. They come from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots,
bushes, seeds, and fruit rinds. They are highly concentrated and more potent then herbs.
They freely flow through cell membranes. They increase oxygen and nutrients in the cells. They can be inhaled, applied topically, and ingested.
Read supplements carefully. Don’t use anything with Xylitol in it for dogs. That includes the toothpastes and BLM powder but not capsules. Thieves mouthwash is currently safe and can be added to the water.
I avoid citrus oils in cats except the blends such as Peace and Calming. Citrus oils are often used to deter cats from places. High phenol oils such as Thyme and Oregano need to be highly diluted in cats. Other oils containing greater than 50% phenols are Wintergreen, Anise, Birch, Clove, Basil, Tarragon, and Fennel.
Use oils your pets like. They are often drawn to ones they need. There are so many to choose from so keep trying. Start far away. Their noses are stronger than ours. I keep small pre-diluted bottles of oil handy for applying on napping cats. Diffusing is an easy way to use the oils on pets. You can use a special diffuser with a timer or use an unbleached coffee filter or washcloth in the room.
Cats/small dogs: 3-5 drops diluted (80-90%) or let oil dry on you then touch pet
Medium dogs: 1-2 drops (follow recommended dilutions for people)
Large dogs: 3-5 drops (Follow recommended dilutions for people)
Apply to paws, diffuse in air, or apply on location. If oil gets in eyes or is irritating add V6, organic olive oil or organic coconut oil. Do not add water.
Sangha enjoys using essential oils such as Copaiba, Lavender, and Purification.
Dudley enjoyed Lavender, Sacred Mountain, and SARA in a diffuser for emotional support when I found him in my garage.
