  • Hi Dee! Great question! Essential oils can be safely and effectively shared with your animal friends. Special caution should be exercised when using essential oils with cats. Cats are generally averse to citrus essential oils and high-phenol oils. For more information visit EO’s and Pets A Quick How To also Animals and Oils What You Need To Know. If you have further concerns, we recommend that you seek the advice and recommendation of a veterinarian who has experience with essential oils use on animals. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Hi Sueita! We’re happy to hear about Purification working well to help eliminate odors. However, due to the sensitivity of Sugar Gliders, we do recommend caution when using essential oils, including Thieves or Purification, around Sugar Gliders unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian. Thank you for stopping by and sharing!

  • Teresa Wilson

    We bought our daughter’s SUV when she moved to Europe. Unfortunately, she had smoked in it, & I am highly allergic to cigarette smoke. I pulled the vehicle into garage, put my diffuser inside & ran an extension cord to the outlet. I ran the diffuser over a course of several days, & now the odor is extremely faint. I think with another round or two, & it will be free of those last hints of smoke—& you know how hard that is to accomplish without chemical air “purifiers”!! I’m very happy!!

    I use this in my toilets!
