Essential Oils for Cats Essential oils for cats. There is so much mis-information out there regarding using essential oils on cats.

Jen has used essential oils on cats for over 15 years, she’s never killed one. She’s had 7 cats and had great success with maintaining their health and vitality.

You do not need a lot of essential oils applied on your cats. Less is more, same with a human. Cats are so small, you need a lot less.

A few ways to use essential oils on cats:
1. Diffusing with cats and essential oils. The cats have the choice to come and go. Use oils that are not obtrusive like oregano or cinnamon. Use oils that are gentle or too much for them like lavender, chamomile, or frankincense. Diffusing essential oils around the cats.

2. Topical application of oils to cats. Yes you can apply essential oils to your cats. One drop on your hand so it’s very spread thin, then pet the animal. Gentle oils that you would normally choose for a baby from flower, tree, root, and leaf oils.

Do not open your essential oil bottles and shove it under their nose. Crack the oil and leave them on the ground so the cat can go smell what they want to smell. Take the lid off too, they will gravitate to what they need. When they are done they will walk away.

Most important thing is to make sure you have PURE essential oils on your cats. Non-pure (adulterated) essential oils can harm a cat or even kill them.

    How many drops would I give my cat to help with intestinal issues? Virus is suspected from fleas, but all the symptoms of salmonella – however, so much $ at the vets cannot figure out why she is loosing weight rapidly, vomiting, etc. She’ll look ready for death, then come out of it full of energy & natural happy beauty again (she’s 14). It’s terrible. Due to the come backs being SO good, my family argues she should not be put down – but due to the downs being visible intestinal pain, crumpled up in pain, just terrible looking, it is something that builds, peaks destructive, she recovers some, then it happens again. I’m at a loss & antibiotics did nothing. This needs antiviral but I don’t know how much to use to get into her intestine.

    hi I just saved a 6 week old kitten and I’m very concerned I’ve had her for a day and she hasn’t pooped just peed . . would it be ok to use vitamin E oil or tea tree oil to help her or just coconut oil?

    Thank you for your support!. My 4 cats developed herpes from one of them and I’m planning to give hem 100% pure essential oregano oil to cure their herpes. Apparently it works with humans and I want to try with them.

    Thanks you very much for the video. I love essential oils. I found your video today because I diffused some peppermint essential in my bedroom. My 7 year old cat ran in when she got a whiff, and won’t leave the area lol.

    I accidentally put too much peppermint oil on myself and I am worried that just the smell will bother my cats. I diluted it on my skin but the peppermint smell is so strong : (

    I bathe my dogs in coconut oil to avoid fleas etc. I was surprised with a lil puppy (chihuahua) and he was scratching so I told my son to check him out and yup he had about 10 fleas so we bathed him in Dr.Woods Castile soap,a little coconut oil (hexane free) and cedarwood oil ( good for our hair,cats and dogs)…..washed him off then dried him and rubbed him all over with coconut oil.He even ate a little bit of coconut oil and enjoyed it.He is fine now,very happy and clean as a whistle….. make sure you do your own research first and use solid coconut oil labeled cold pressed and hexane free to avoid gasoline plus the tick and flea repellent component of coconut oil is “lauric acid”, so it is important to use a pure and unprocessed product.
