Essential Oils and Pets

Updated: Oct 1, 2022

We all want to keep our pets safe. While we are usually aware of many foods that our furry friends must avoid (like chocolate and grapes), not many know that some plants and essential oils are also toxic. However, it is important to note that how much and how often essential oils are used make a large difference. Here are a few things to keep in mind when using essential oils around your cats and dogs. Reptiles and other pets require additional consideration. Please do your research if you love your snake, lizard, tortoise, etc.

Say no to concentrated oils

As a rule of thumb, never apply undiluted/neat (ie 100% pure) essential oils onto your pets. All Zeeta products have a carrier oil, or distilled water, that allow for easy application while reaping the same therapeutic benefits. This is beneficial for dogs, who have a heightened sense of smell and may have negative reactions to more concentrated blends as well as for our feline friends. When in doubt, use at your own discretion! If it will irritate your skin, it will probably have the same affect on your pets.

Think Before Diffusing

While diffusing essential oils may make your home smell lovely, pay attention to your pet's behavior around the diffuser. If your curious cat likes to stay by the diffuser for long periods of time, it could have negative affects on their health. A pet-friendly alternative to diffusers are Aromatherapy Sprays, which are water-based and safe for use. Our favorite blends to counteract unpleasant odors are Defuse and Lovely Lavender. For safest results, spray your pet's bed instead of spraying your pet directly.
