Thank you for this article! I love aromatherapy. I took the level 1 training workshop for Wisdom of the Earth essential oils, because I love it so much.
A word of caution though....becareful of the grade. A bad grade of oils can be poisonous to pets. Bad grade of some can cause break outs or allergic reactions in some.
Also keep in mind, pets generally have smaller lungs then we do. Something that might be pleasent to us, might be overwhelming to a cat or a gerbil or such.
I only trust medicinal grade. In the workshop, we tried dozens of oils, on our skin, straight up, no carrier oils. And I didn't break out, even though I have excema. I didn't have any allergy problems even though I am allergic to pollen.
