Essential oils toxic to cats

For over a hundred years, aromatic plants have been used in folk medicine to remedy illnesses. Many natural remedies have been passed down through the generations. Essential oils are the aromatic liquid extracted from the plant. An important element in the use of essential oils is that they must not be inhaled or ingested. The oils can be used as drops in the eyes. Sometimes they are applied externally.

Aromatic plants and cats

The aromas of aromatic plants are usually attractive. The perfume of lavender has been used for centuries to soothe the nerves. It is used to help reduce stress and promote relaxation. The leaves of the verbena plant have been used in folk medicine as a sedative and to relieve tension. The oil of clove is highly aromatic and is used to relieve pn, calm anxiety and to reduce symptoms of cough and fever. Peppermint oil is anti-spasmodic and can also stimulate the nerves. The aromatic properties of peppermint can be used to treat flatulence, indigestion and constipation.

It is common for essential oils to be mixed with animal fats to make creams and lotions. Often, the oils will be added to the diet as a health supplement. The use of essential oils in folk medicine is usually in diluted form. Sometimes the essential oil is mixed with food to add flavour and aroma to dishes. Aromatic plants have been used to flavour foods as they are also a traditional remedy.

For the use of essential oils in cats, dilute the oils with half the amount of water. If possible, add two drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil (such as almond or almond, olive or coconut). If you cannot add two drops, add the maximum amount that is tolerated. To cats, a dilution of one part essential oil to 30 parts carrier oil is the most effective dosage.

Essential oils can irritate the eyes and skin when applied in undiluted form. To avoid irritation, apply the oil mixed in a carrier oil to the area to be treated.

**Note:** The cat's digestive system does not function the same way as a human's. If you use essential oils on a cat, use a much lower dosage than recommended for humans. Too much of anything can be toxic to a cat.

After you have diffused a few drops, remove your hand, or let the water cool for a few minutes. It may take a couple of minutes for the essential oils to diffuse into the water, so don't be alarmed if it takes a bit longer.
