Does your pet have the following condition?
- Flea Control
- Car Sickness
- Cuts and burns
- Dogs have a much stronger sense of smell than humans. Therefore when using essential oils only a small amount is necessary.
- It is commonly thought that dogs have about 200 million olfactory receptors, perhaps 20 times more than humans.
- Many Essential Oils are dangerous to cats.
- Apply several drops of essential oil to a bandana handkerchief and tie it around your dogs neck, or purchase a nebulizing diffuser, which releases essential oils into the air.
Dogs should be treated with a dose similar to that which you would use on a child. This is approximately 2-3 percent. You can achieve this percentage dilution in two ways. If you are making an essential oil blend, add 15 drops of your essential oil to a 1/2 ounce of base oil- a fatty oil such as sesame sweet almond, or jojoba , If you are making a spritz spray, add 30 drops to 8 ounces of water or other liquid- hydrosols, aloe vera or cider vinegar. A dog that is exposed to a higher dose of EOs than necessary may pace, whine, roll, drool or become frenetic. Lethargy, lack of coordination and shock are also symptoms.
Aromatherapy is a complementary natural health remedy and should never be used as a replacement for regular veterinary care. If your dog is ill, please consult your vet.
