When using essential oils, we have to be careful not to distract from your own body's needs. Don't doubt your own ability to be in tune with how your body is responding to essential oils. There's a proportional relationship with the benefits we receive from essential oils and the amount of essential oils we use.

This is why its our job and responsibility as pet owners to stay informed about what essential oils are dangerous for our furry friends and which essential oils are safe for them. Here are a few essential oils that wont harm your cats.
Cedarwood: Not only is cedarwood safe for cats, but it actually has been proven to be lethal to adult fleas. After you have given your cat a flea bath, try adding a drop or two of cedarwood essential oil into their collar in order to prevent future flea infestations.
Sweet Basil: A fragrant plant great at fighting odors with its natural anti-viral, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. Sweet basil essential oil is an effective essential oil to use as an air freshener and is safe to use around your cats.
Peppermint: Much like with cedarwood, peppermint essential oil is great for keeping fleas and other pests at bay without harming your feline friend.
Rosemary: Rosemary baths can be wonderful for flea control. Most prefer to mix one or two drops into a pitcher of water and pouring the mixture over your cat and letting it dry without rinsing.
