When it comes to cats, there are many differing views on using essential oils with cats.  Experts recommend using Hydrosols over oils with cats because cats cannot metabolize essential oils the same as humans and dogs.

To use Essential Oils safely, always ensure cats can leave a room that has oils being diffused in.

Avoid all oils that contain: camphor, limonene, methyl salicylate, pinene, as well as essential oils with significant ketones and phenols.
