Pet-Friendly Essential Oils

on May 31, 2021

In recent years, there is a growing tendency in society that essential oils can be found just about everywhere! We have come to use essential oils to benefit so many different areas of our lives. Aromatherapy already has become part of our lifestyle. But somewhat more recently, essential oil for pets is a popular topic. Pet parents are excited to extend this same healing power to their pets as well! But are these products safe for our pets? well, the answer is yes. It does support the human-animal bond if used appropriately.

 

How Aromatherapy Helps Pets

Whether it’s a nervous dog or sad cat, we as pet owners will always want the best for him or her. We've put together this guide on essential oils to help our four-legged friends. As always, we hope our beloved pet never suffers from pain and won’t need these methods at all. However, emotional problems for dogs or cats do exist and it has become our realization that we need to do something to ease their pain. And like us, our four-legged friends can experience travel anxiety. Turns out, lavender oil and chamomile oil have been shown to help dogs suffering from anxiety. Diffuse some in your home before you and your pet get into the car could be another option. Or your dog is suffering from some general issues such as aggression or shyness, and you would like a natural way to help them. You may simply diffuse the cedarwood oil, let it float through the air, both you and your pet can enjoy the aroma. When aromatherapy is used responsibly, the powerful plant oils deliver a safe solution to support pet on their journey to emotional and physical well-being, as the complementary or even the alternative to traditional medicine. It can help to create a calming environment scent before rest period (depending on oil), to keep pet alert and energized after a rest period (depending on oil) and to eliminate harmful airborne bacteria and offensive odors (depending on oil).
