We first brought therapeutic essential oils into our home in 2013 (Peppermint for nausea, Lavender for sleep, etc.). Our dogs (Finny and Bella) were 3 and 1 at the time. We would create nightly blends of essential oils for our diffuser and used a log book to track which blends were worth trying a second time. We experimented as much as we could, read heavily, and attended schools of aromatherapy in 2015 and 2016 so we could create more effective blends and better products.
The more we learned, the more we realized that essential oils can become overwhelming for new and even experienced users. There is a LOT of content out there, and not only that, each oil can be exceptionally detailed. Traditional Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) can consist of up to 61 different chemical constituents, and the ratios are influenced by season, location, climate, processing, storage, and more.
We wanted to make it easier for you to assess your individual safety needs, so have created a 5-question framework that will allow you to do that! Use the following questions to assess the pet safety of any active essential oil household;
Can your pet metabolize essential oils?
If applying topically or setting up your diffuser, can your pet lick the spot?
Can your pet move freely?
Can your pet access your essential oils?
Have you searched for contraindications?
We hope this framework has allowed you to feel more comfortable and confident in your essential oil use around your home. If you are left with questions unanswered by this framework, comment below and let’s find the information you need! If looking to use essential oils for health benefits for your pets, please reach out to your vet to ensure that they will be a good fit for your pet’s health and wellness.
