Essential Oils & Cats
A cat's liver is unable to metabolise some of the chemical components found in Essential Oils, eventually causing liver failure. This can happen with oils applied to the skin or inhaled. Depending on the oil(s) used, toxicity can occur very quickly or over time with long-term use.
If you have cats around, think carefully before using air fresheners, burning aromatherapy candles or using diffusers with Essential Oils.
Cats are highly sensitive to Essential Oils as they have a very good sense of smell, so it is always better to have professional guidance if you ever consider using Essential Oils on your cat. Tea Tree Oil is one of the most problematic oils and the one that people often have to hand "in case of emergency".
