Its been over a year since I first began to research how to incorporate essential oils and recipes using them into my life. Since I began I have replaced many of our cleaning products, over the counter remedies and cosmetics with essential oils and blends.
My first thought now when I get a skin wound or cut is to grab a few essential oils and mix with some fractionated coconut oil, to make an ointment with natural antiseptic properties. If I overindulge in yummy food and end up with a stomach issue, I have discovered and used oils for that, also.
Sore muscles and joints are also treated with oil blends for relief. Naturally, I began to look into replacing animal health care products with essential oil concoctions that I make at home. There are some differences to be aware of as not all oils are appropriate or safe for use on animals.
Animals cannot always communicate that there is a problem, and some oils may burn skin (called Hot Oils) or upset a problem and make it worse. I want to share with you the ones I have determined are safe to use on my animals and that I have tried with success.
