How To Use Essential Oils for your cats:

AROMATIC
Diffuse
🌱Apply to your hand and hold up the nose (never put directly on their nose)
🌱Apply to a bandana, collar, bed or toys

TOPICAL

🌱Nape of the neck
🌱Paws (between toes or pads)
🌱Directly on affected area
🌱Spine
🌱Pinna (hairless portion of ear flap
🌱Petting (apply 1 drop to hand and pet the cat down or up the back

INTERNAL

🌱In water bowl

Oils which are not safe for cats

🚫Avoid oils high in phenols and eugenols for direct application (topical or internal) such as,
🚫Basil, Birch, Cinnamon, Clove, Fennel, Melaleuca, Oregano, Peppermint, Thyme, and Wintergreen
🚫as well as oils high in d-limonene which includes all Citrus oils (Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Tangerine and Wild Orange).
Essential oils with high levels of these constituents may overwhelm a cat’s liver’s ability to metabolize and eliminate them.

● It’s not a good idea to use oils topically or internally on your cat every single day.

● Don’t put oils directly in eyes, ears, nose or any other sensitive areas.

● When oiling your cat, please make sure they are well hydrated. The oils are detoxifying and if they aren’t properly hydrated the toxins will just sit in their system with no way out.

If they are severely sick, they may need IV fluids from your vet.

● If you are treating a wound, remove all the hair with clippers (not scissors) from around the wound. This allows the wound to heal faster. Keep your cat from licking the wound by using a sock, t-shirt, shorts, bandage, or e-collar when necessary.
