Essentials oils are becoming exceeding popular as a holistic way of managing our health, but can our pets benefit from them too?
Essential oils can be a wonderful addition to supporting our pets emotional and physical wellbeing when used correctly. They can support our pet’s skin, calm the emotions and give relief to our senior pet’s muscles and joints and so much more.
But what are essential oils exactly?
To put it simply they are naturally occurring aromatic compounds found in plants, seeds, bark, stems, roots and flowers. They are extremely potent so a little goes a long way and especially for our pets!
There are a few important things to consider when starting your journey of using essential oils for your pets.
First off, know your pet’s health and talk to your veterinarian if in doubt. It’s always good to know what you are dealing with first and some oils may not be advisable with certain conditions and medications.
There are many different oils brands on the market but not all oils are created equally. Choosing an oil that is certified pure grade is imperative. Many oils contain synthetics and we could end up doing our pet and ourselves more harm than good.
Knowledge is the key. Essential oils can play such a beneficial role in our pet’s well being and there are lots of wonderful resources and information out there. Take time to research the oil you are using for your pet, get advice or attend an essential oils workshop to learn more.
We love using essential oils for our beautiful dogs Sunny and Grommy and we are passionate about sharing our knowledge and helping others.
