Essential Oils are great for therapeutic and creating a beautiful scents in your home, but to some members of our family they can be quite distressing. Dogs are super sensitive to scents as their smell is the most active sense, so it is important to research which essential oils are suitable.
Avoid using the following oils indoors when there is limited fresh airflow as they could be harmful or even fatal: Tea Tree, Cinnamon, Orange, Mandarin, Lemon, Lime, peppermint, Wintergreen, Ylang-Ylang, Juniper, Thyme, Basil, Clove.
Some of these are good for natural cleaning products, so try to use sparingly on the floors or lower surfaces even when diluted. Dogs are not fond of eucalyptus either. It isn’t harmful so much as annoying to them, so works as a good floor cleaner substitute instead of citrus.
There are several others which are seldom used, but dogs are extremely sensitive to the ones above. They will become depressed and potentially stop eating.
