Diffusing Essential Oils At Home With Pets
We love using a diffuser in the office and in our homes, however, it is important to note that diffusing essential oils has a completely different effect on animals than it does when using them in products topically.
This doesn’t mean to immediately stop diffusing, it just means that you may have to undergo a bit of an investigation to see how your pet reacts to the various scents, often they move away or leave the room if the smell is not to their liking. If you do notice your pets disappear when you’re diffusing a certain oil or blend, it is recommended to lower the dose (never exceed the drop count) or cease using it for a period of time.
Be sure to take note if your pet is having any respiratory irritation (e.g. watery nose, eyes, difficulty breathing) as some oils when diffused can be hazardous to cats. Once again, call a specialist/veterinarian for expert advice.
