aromatherapy introduction for dogs

Essential oils are meant to be used topically or inhaled. Our mists can be sprayed on your pet but be careful not to spray in eyes, nose or mouth, we recommend spraying in your palms and massaging behind ears and back. When introducing a new essential oil to your pet, never force application without first getting their approval, if they resist the scent in any way do not apply. Do not use essential oils on medium or large breed puppies until they are eight weeks old or on small breed puppies until they are ten weeks old. Introduce 

essential oils gradually. If a dog shows any signs of distress (whining, panting, drooling, etc.) around an essential oil, stop using it. Use essential oils in moderation with dogs, especially old, pregnant, or ill dogs. Be especially careful if the dog has epilepsy or is prone to seizures. Read below about precautions for cats and use of essential oils before starting any aromatherapy regime.
