    Love all the tips and tricks!!

  • Elizabeth W.

    Please educate me as to which oils should not be around pets. I am thinking of a few drops being added to the laundry and using a diffuser with an oil of choice. But want to make sure there will be no negative effects concerning the animals.
    Thank you, Elizabeth W.

    • Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for stopping by! Essential oils can be safely and effectively shared with your animal friends. For more information on how to utilize the Young Living® products for your animals, please visit http://www.youngliving.com/blog/essential-oils-and-pets-a-quick-how-to/. If you have further concerns, we recommend that you seek the advice and recommendation of a competent, trained veterinarian with knowledge and experience with essential oils use on animals. Your animal’s size does affect the amount of oil you should use.

      -For smaller animals like cats and small dogs, use 3–5 drops. Additional dilution may be required. We suggest testing the blend on a small area before applying it to the desired area. If sensitivity occurs, the fur will become raised. In that situation, please dilute the oil further with V-6™ or olive oil. Special caution should be exercised when using essential oils with cats. Cats are generally averse to citrus essential oils and high-phenol oils. For a list of high-phenol oils, please contact productsupport@youngliving.com.

      -For larger animals, like large dogs, start with 3–5 drops. Additional dilution may be required. We suggest testing the blend on a small area before applying it to the desired area. If sensitivity occurs, the fur will become raised. In that situation, please dilute the oil further with V-6™ or olive oil.

    I have a question regarding Rosemary…. I know it is a potent antiseptic and kills bacteria and stuff. My question is will it kill off the good “gut bacteria”? The reason I am asking is my daughter suffers from Ulcerative Colitis and she takes probiotics to help her gut flora to keep her in remission and I am concerned if this will effect her or anyone else :/ Thanks in advanced for any info. I am fairly new to EOs 🙂

    • Hi Terry, Thanks for your question. Young Living’s products are intended only for the use listed on individual labels—either for topical/aromatic use or as a dietary supplement. For optimal benefits, please always follow the directions on the product labels. If you have concerns regarding the use of any product according to its label directions, please consult your daughter’s health care provider.
