Essential Oils: For your Dog

General guidelines


  • Dogs tend to tolerate most essentials oils quite well.
  • Dogs will vary in how they respond to essential oils in general as well as to specific individual oils.
  • Make sure you are aware of your dog’s reaction to the use of the oils.
  • Start low and slow and dilute a lot. Their sense of smell is way more sensitive than ours.
  • “Strong scented” oils, such as citrus or minty types may be less tolerated by dogs as compared to “soft scented” oils such as lavender, cedarwood and vetiver.
