    I’m more confused than when I started, is lavender safe for cats ? Your not giving a straight answer which kind of implies your leading every one to your consultations on your web site , thanks for heads up on the diffusers though

    Thank you!! This is super helpful

    Ok a bit confused. Are certain oils dangerous? What about Lemongrass?

  4. Felicity Champagne on May 9, 2021 at 2:41 am

    *sigh…* I just FINALLY got a essential oil evaporater for my birthday and never thought to look this up

  5. **SeeYourStar** on May 9, 2021 at 2:41 am

    Just an idea…Maybe if it’s toxic to animals it’s a sign we shouldn’t be using them. @AwakenwithJP said "in fact there’s nothing more natural than taking 3000 pounds of flower petals to make 1 pound of essential oil, nature does it all the time! lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_Ecmciv9zI

  7. Swmtothemoon on May 9, 2021 at 2:43 am

    I don’t understand why this lady didn’t mention any toxic plants to not diffuse around your pet

  8. Ivette N on May 9, 2021 at 2:44 am

    Hello! Thank you for sharing this important information!! What do you think about doterra oils? Is it still good to diffus at night my dog sleeps in the room with me? I am new to diffusing oil.

    From me and my co-author Mia K Frezzo. DVM: I have not had a problem diffusing around my animals. You should watch the zoom class with me and my co-author Dr. Mia Frezzo. Here is a response we wrote recently regarding oils and animals.
    In our experience and expert opinions, we feel that the quality and purity of the essential oil is of utmost importance especially when using essential oils and essential oil products on cats. We have successfully and safely used numerous essential oils via diffusion and by topical application in cats. No adverse reactions have been observed, and the results have been positive.

    As such, the essential oil brand and source must be carefully considered when purchasing these products. Essential oil quality is extremely important when using them in dogs and cats because poor quality oils may contain ingredients such as pesticides or contaminants that may render the oil ineffective or dangerous. Potential contaminants include herbicides and pesticides, industrial solvents and phthalates.

    Much of the information circulating the web, cautioning the use of essential oils in cats and dogs, involved poor quality oils that had not undergone thorough testing for purity, potency and safety.

    When using or diffusing essential oils around your pets, always monitor your animal. We do not recommend diffusing essential oils around your animals if you will not be home or they will not be monitored. If your pet shows signs of discomfort such as lethargy, increased breathing rate, panting, salivating, squinting eyes, or any other change that you consider to be adverse or out of the ordinary, turn off the diffuser and air out the space by opening windows and doors to let in fresh air.

    Dr. Frezzo diffuses essential oils including Wild Orange and Peppermint in her exam rooms and lobby and has not had any ill affects on her dog or cat patients. In fact, innumerable clients have commented that their pets are very cooperative and relaxed in Dr. Frezzo’s veterinary hospital.

    In the case that went viral on FaceBook this week, Liver and renal toxicity can occur for a number of reasons. We would wonder if the animals had an underlying condition that could explain the liver/renal toxicity. In addition, there might be other household chemicals or cleaners to which the cat has been exposed that could explain the toxicity. Also consider what kind of diet and treats the cat is being given. All of these factors can result in liver/renal toxicity. We would also wonder how essential oils have been used on the animal and the dose. Were they applied topically, and, if so, how much and how often? Were they diffused, and, if so, how often and was it in a closed space? Most cases of toxicity that are recorded in the medical literature were in animals that were exposed to very high levels of essential oils, likely of poor quality.

    In summary, always use certified pure therapeutic grade/medical grade essential oils with your pets. Remember always use high quality oils that have been third party tested,Only purchase essential oils from an authorized distributor, consult with someone who is knowledgeable about the use of essential oils in animals and your veterinarian.

    Thank you for you video!

  14. Missy Hoops on May 9, 2021 at 2:56 am

    I make my own cleaning products and would like to add a few drops of essential oils into the mix. I have not done so because everything I read says that the oils are toxic to cats.

  15. justin lion on May 9, 2021 at 2:59 am

    My staffy loves lavender,, it really calms her down

    "in 2019, this list helped me decide for the best essential oil diffuser *scafe.shop/tbeod2019?Zo* hope it helps you out too!"

  18. Bethany on May 9, 2021 at 3:05 am

    I read that cats lack an enzyme in their liver that helps us to metabolize essential oils, so in cats essential oils lead to toxicity and can be fatal even if there are not any initial symptoms. I also saw that lavender, just the plant itself is toxic to cats. Could you elaborate on why essential oils are not toxic to a cat’s liver? I’m confused because there are so many different articles giving different opinions and I just want the facts.

  19. MurKy on May 9, 2021 at 3:05 am

    If I use an essential oil will it harm my snake in any way?

  20. Madison Tipton on May 9, 2021 at 3:06 am

    OOHHUUUMMMM…

  21. Kayla Munster on May 9, 2021 at 3:10 am

    Is it okay to diffuse around pet reptiles? I have a snake and a bearded dragon

  22. Anaiah Brown on May 9, 2021 at 3:13 am

  23. Mrs H Fibro on May 9, 2021 at 3:13 am

  24. Adriana Ansaldi on May 9, 2021 at 3:13 am

    Can you defuse lemon grass around cats?

  25. Elsie H Martinez on May 9, 2021 at 3:14 am

    Lavander with peppermint essential oil doterra water diffuser calmed by 2 golden retrievers during wind storms. The breathe doterra oil puts them to sleep during thunder storm and windows closed. It relaxes them enough to put them to sleep, without it, my dogs would wake up from deep sleep when feeling thunder outside. Have not tried diffuser during fireworks.

  26. aqin713 on May 9, 2021 at 3:14 am

    OMG just GIVE US the answer!! terrible video

  27. Robert Olson on May 9, 2021 at 3:15 am

    The very best thing for you and your pet is clean unadulterated air. Remember your dog has a sense of smell 300 times greater than you do. I think the best answer to the question is this. Set up 300 diffusers in the room and see if you like it. – The Clean Air Guy.

  28. Luxurykittie on May 9, 2021 at 3:16 am

    Is the brand Now essential oils a safe brand?

  29. Marisa Jacobo on May 9, 2021 at 3:16 am

    how many times a day can I diffuse ?? rigjt now I’m doing it 3 times a day basicly all day long … is that bad ?

  30. Piccoli Carini on May 9, 2021 at 3:19 am

    I’ve nvr tried a diffuser. I have a dog & 2 guinea pigs. Doing my research & leaning twds not bothering. I only use a bath&bodyworks plug-in in 1/2 bathroom. My nose is overly sensitive. If I burn a candle, it’s only for minutes to an hr. then I’m feeling overwhelmed. I’ve read gp’s have extremely sensitive noses, so I can’t imagine how they’d handle a diffuser. My mom was always using oils on lightbulbs in 80’s-90’s, candles, wax melts, & recently dx w/ the deadly Pulmonary Fibrosis. Ppl need to really do their research.

  31. Ronni Passmore on May 9, 2021 at 3:19 am

    You should never get to use Teatree oil around pets they can kill them

  32. Frani Dance on May 9, 2021 at 3:20 am

    I now have to go to a site that tells me which essential oils are safe for cats and dogs

  33. Margearet Williams on May 9, 2021 at 3:21 am

    Lavender is Toxic for cats but not sure for Dogs…

  34. DreamWishStar on May 9, 2021 at 3:23 am

    Why not use distilled water?

  35. KoconutJazzcat on May 9, 2021 at 3:23 am

    Thanks for my early morning discussion and I guess just mainly keeping the diffuser out of reach of animals

  36. Dawn Croteau on May 9, 2021 at 3:24 am

    Essential oils are TOXIC to cats. This lady is so WRONG

  37. Hi Sickler on May 9, 2021 at 3:27 am

    I say everybody to stop doing this around your dog. If your dog gets a runny nose or breathing hard it’s coughing don’t use them around your bogs trust me I had to put to my dogs down because of people like this that says the quality of it bullshit. It’s a allergic reaction analogy dogs might have towards it not all dogs are the same and the quality of it. Look listen Can you tell me if your kids is allergic to peanuts are you go buy a better brand Or quality And say here your gonna be fine. Trust me. We had a put to our dogs down over the shit and she still wants to believe this crap that it wasn’t none of that But when she stopped for a month like I ask her are no stop running they were doing better I do whatever I was at work should burn during the day anyways and they need a dying over it and we are still fighting over it it’s not worth.

  38. Jackie Eco on May 9, 2021 at 3:28 am

    After I started using essential oils – NO diffuser – sometimes just a couple drops at the bottom of my shower, my cat started getting MAJOR SEIZURES. I got rid of ALL the oils!!!

  39. Lori Rieder on May 9, 2021 at 3:28 am

    I don’t think she’s right. I read that some essential oils are toxic to cats (and dogs). Build up over time can cause liver failure, from what I read. Check out this website link for more information about how not to harm your cat: http://www.usingeossafely.com/is-it-safe-to-use-essential-oils-with-cats/

  40. Olivia Bill on May 9, 2021 at 3:29 am

    Are the doTerra oils good quality, I don’t want to hut my kitty

  41. bariton3 on May 9, 2021 at 3:31 am

    my friends keep telling me that essential oils can kill my dog but i dont know who to believe

  42. Shiny sylveon M.L.G. on May 9, 2021 at 3:31 am

    I’m looking for the video of the cat gagging at a diffuser where is it?

  43. Tishanna Supnet on May 9, 2021 at 3:33 am

    Hi! Thank you for the video! Are there any specific oils that are not good/safe around dogs? We just recently got one. TIA for your time!

  44. olivia brado on May 9, 2021 at 3:34 am

    what about the oils that are toxic to cats? is lavender okay to use around my kitty? I don’t want to harm him unknowingly. I’ve read that certain oils can cause problems to the liver of cats. and they can die from it

  45. Kelly Lang on May 9, 2021 at 3:36 am

    My dog has just been diagnosed with fluid around the heart, we are taking him to see a cardiologist ASAP but I wanted to see if you recommend anything? I just diffused some breathe easy and it seems like it really relaxed him but maybe it’s just all in my head? Thank you for your time!

  46. Tronderose on May 9, 2021 at 3:36 am

    2:16 WRONG. Not all oils are safe for all pets! Tea tree f.ex is toxic to cats and can make them sick because they can’t break down that oil in their system. At least that’s what I’ve heard from several people.
