DIFFUSER RECOMMENDATIONS

Diffusing is the most effective method of using essential oils to deal with emotional issues. This is because the best way to get the essential oils to the brain’s limbic system, which controls emotions, is through the olfactory system (that is, the nose).

To safely diffuse essential oils around dogs, use a water atomizing diffuser. These are the diffusers with a water reservoir, to which the oil is added.

Do not put more than 4 drops of essential oils in the water reservoir. Dogs have a much keener sense of smell than humans and can be overwhelmed if more oil is used.

Choose the lowest setting your diffuser has. Depending on need, diffuse a few hours to around the clock for something like breathing/respiratory challenges.

BEWARE!!
