Pets and Essential Oils

$14

with Elissa Nauman

Calendar Feb 26, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Did you know that you can use essential oils on your pets? These gifts from nature offer a safe, gentle, and natural way to treat a variety of health issues and can even be used along with medications in order to help possible side effects. In this class, you will learn which oils are recommended for your furry friend, which ones you should avoid, and what you can use them for. We will also explore how to apply them to your pet, and safety precautions to take while treating them. Please note that this class will mostly pertain to dogs since cats are more sensitive to the potency and scent of essential oils, however, we will briefly review which oils are safe and toxic to cats.
