Difusing For Animals
Diffusing is a great way to introduce essential oils to animals. It is gentle enough for most sensitive animals who have had little exposure to essential oils, and, at the same time, very effective. Because of their tiny molecular structure, essential oils diffused in the air will not only be introduced into the bodies of nearby pets or animals through smell, but they will also penetrate through the skin, allowing the animal(s) to reap the benefits of the oil's therapeutic properties. (NOTE: Even fish can benefit greatly from diffusing.)
are ideal. It will prevent the over-concentration of essential oils in the air and is especially suitable for small animals, especially cats who seem to be more sensitive to smells. It is important to start with a very minute amount of oil in the water diffuser (even as little as 1 drop) and gradually increase over a matter of weeks as you see fit. Also, keep in mind that the greater the area is where the oils are being diffused, the better it is for first-time users.
