Essential oils

    I know there are many essential oils to avoid in the house. Ziva's acupuncture dr. uses lavender so I'm guessing that's ok. However I use various blends topically on myself (not in a diffuser) and she spends part of the night on my bed with me. Are there some I should avoid?

    The way it was explained to me is some oils are just plain toxic. Others are only a problem because of how concentrated essential oils are. A dog's sense of smell is so more keen than humans so a whiff for them is REALLY powerful.
    I don't know if you have access to a Holistic Vet where you are but they tend to be the most knowledgeable on the subject.
    Because all dogs are different, I would say if you notice any symptoms at all STOP the use.

    I would also make sure they are all USDA certified Organic. You get what you pay for. Not all are created equal.

    Some need a carrier oil in them to put directly on the skin.
    Or if you have a Cotton collar you can put them right on the collar.

    Also some oils can be toxic when used in a diffuser!

    Look up www.AnimalEO.com we use their CardioBoost.

    Also Young and Living are very good Oils

    This is interesting to me too since I was just looking more into them last week. I do have a bottle of lavender but haven't tried it for anything yet. I believe someone here suggested it in part for a bug repellent; probably Genny.

    My holistic vet said there should be no problem using them topically ON MYSELF. I don't use a diffuser. The only one used by my holistic vet on Ziva was lavender.

    Very important! I think this applies to EVERYTHING! Label reading can be challenging. The marketing ploys companies can get away with are maddening. So often the cheap stuff is filled with crap!
