    Inevitably of my cats has a lot of anxiety which he is on meds for. Which oil can I use to relax him? Peace & calming? Lavender? Stress away?? I’d appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

    • Hi JoAnn, Essential oils can be safely and effectively shared with your animal friends. However, if your pet has a disease or medical condition, or if they are using a prescription medication, it is recommended that you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained veterinarian with knowledge and experience with essential oils use on animals prior to using an Essential Oil. You will also want to seek their advice about potential interactions between the medications and essential oils. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Lisa Sisca Furtado

    Is there an oil that is good for ears on dogs?

    • Hi Lisa, we recommend applying the oils to your dog’s paws, not ears. If you have further concerns, we recommend speaking to your veterinarian for targeted advice. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Deirdre Elvis-Peterson

    Doesn’t the use of water with essential oils drive the oil deeper…wouldn’t that be a “don’t”?

    • Hi Deidre, the dilution with water is referring to using the essential oils in a spray bottle for easier application on large animals such as horses. We recommend using V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex when diluting for topical application on smaller animals. Thanks for stopping by!
