Pets and Essential oils - how to use them respectfully with pets
When introducing your pets (cats & dogs primarily) there are few common sense things to keep in mind. If you take the time to know a few of the recommended DO’s and DON’TS you and your pets will both enjoy and benefit from Young Living essential oils.
  • Chihuahua and great dane shutterstock_2783537-1
  • Dilute: according to weight of the pet (if 1-3 drops is good for a 150 lb human… a Yorkie will need less)
  • Diffuse – it’s the simplest and gentlest way to introduce oils to your pets (make sure they can leave the room where diffuser is running when they’ve had enough
  • ASK your dog or cat which oil it wants (see video below)
Pet your dog with oils starting in the back end (away from their nose) they can smell it all the way back there. If you are wanting to apply an oil in a particular location on the dog then put the oil there.
  • Put oils in ear canal (same goes for humans). Oils can pass through tissues when applied topically so no need to get them into the ear canal.
  • Add to dog or cat water dish, you might offend them or turn them off their foods or water if you put oils in there. There are many dogs who love to lick off oil from the hand or from their fur or others who love it in their food. This requires some discovery first. Don’t assume your pet will love the flavor. It is safe for pets to ingest them (if using YL Vitality  only) , just not always necessary.
