Essential oils are highly concentrated components of plants and are a popular way to add a soothing scent to promote relaxation in the home, beneficial for us and our furry friends. When used in small amounts and for limited periods of time, vaporising (diffusing) essential oils is generally regarded as safe for pets.
What are the dangers?
When vaporised, essential oils release small airborne particles, which pets can inhale. Pets can also ingest essential oils if they are licked off fur, or furniture.
Your pets have an acute sense of smell, something that may seem to be a light scent to us, may be overwhelming to them, and cats do not have the liver enzymes necessary to metabolise essential oil components. That said, you can safely vaporise essential oils around dogs and cats if you take a few simple precautions.
How to use essential oils safely around pets
Like humans, each pet is an individual and has its own chemical makeup and will respond differently to essential oils.
If you follow the recommendations above, you can safely use bask aromatherapy essential oil blends, except for our ease blend as it contains tea tree and eucalyptus which are not recommended for pets.
