When working with essential oils, we use the animal's natural instincts and allow them to choose what products they prefer. This method is safe, effective, and simple, and it strengthens the bond between you and your animal.
HOW does the choosing work?
You keep the lid on the essential oil and let them smell it. Their "choice" or a positive sign looks like prolonged sniffing, interest, or even licking.
A negative choice will be completely ignoring it, barely giving it a sniff or actual avoidance.
Do not force a product on an animal as it can cause stress.
Adverse effects may result by forcing essential oils on an animal.
Everyone has heard of Lavender. It is frequently referred to as "the Swiss army knife of Oils."
