Essential Oils for Pets
When you begin to introduce essential oils to your pet, make sure to dilute your oils with carrier oils because you might get an allergic reaction. General rule of thumb for dogs is to use a 1% dilution for emotional issues and a 2-3% dilution for physical issues.

Cats are more at risk for having an allergic reaction so it needs to be used sparingly for you cat. They have a sensitive sense of smell so it is important to dilute your essential oils. If there is an allergic reaction, make sure your vet is told and my products have a list of the essential oils I have used.
First Aid Oils for your Dog!

When your pets are in pain it is difficult and often when your pet gets hurt we become stressed. You need to be calm because your pet will feel the emotions from you and they can not tell you what is wrong. 

If you need to travel with your pet, it is important to care a first aid kit for your pet. I recommend to have essential oils as part of your first aid kit.
