Can I use essential oils with animals?
“Yes, you can”. However, according to Janet, it is one of those ‘yes, but it really matters which oils and which brand you use’ situations. Janet Roark, Andy Garcia and Heather Pulsipher all believe that brand is critical when using essential oils on and around animals. These professionals use DoTERRA essential oils in their practices. It is critical to ensure that you only use certified therapeutic grade essential oils, due to the sensitivity of animals.
Oils Dr Roark use in her practice:
- ZenGest Essential Oil – digestive health
- Copaiba Essential Oil – supports the cardio-vascular system.
- Lavender Essential Oil – helps with animals that get a little afraid
- Balance Essential Oil – Dr Roark use Balance quite frequently. Balance is already diluted. She puts a drop of Balance on her hands, rubs them together, and then pets the animal along the spine.
