I just purchased you book last night via Amazon…
I just started using eo to worm my 3 giant breed leonbergers…I am using 1 drop of lavender & 1 drop of Digest-Zen..(doTerrs oils)….and 1 drop of oregano in a veggie capsule….for 5 days…knowing that is the cycle of most worms….just want to be sure this is safe…I am on day 2?
I’ve read conflicting information about essential oils & cats (that essential oils may be toxic). I’m confused! 11-12 adopted 2 all-white, short-hair, male cats (genetically deaf) who are now ~12yrs old. One cats keeps compulsively licking himself (for the last 4+months) … so much so that his tummy is pretty bare (fur-less), as well as his lower legs (all 4). His appetite seems relatively normal. Also, he tends to have more “eye crap” (dark-ish brown, but so is his dry cat food, by “Blue Buffalo-higher-end, natural, dried cat food) In general, he prefers water from the dripping faucet over the daily fresh water in his bowl (that he shares w/his brother), but he will drink from that, too. He’s generally a very content & quiet kitty cat, but i’m concerned about this excessive licking. Any suggestions?
One of my friends who also owns several cats (of unknown background) said she thought he might have a urinary tract infection. I’d generally rather not have him take kitty-antibiotics, if he does have some type of infection, but if that’s what’s indicated, i suppose that i could have his vet give him a round of meds. Is there anything that’s anti-bacterial/anti-fungal that i could use either essential oils or hydrosols, instead?
P.s. i was a scientist in university (biologist, neuroscience), and i have been doing some checking on the doTERRA company & the essential oils it produces. Apparently, oils are sourced from around the world (where the plants grow indigenously for greatest potency of therapeutic chemical constituents), & the company uses independent, outside testing labs to test every liter of essential oils (via both Gas Chromatography & Mass Spectrometry) to ensure the purity & consistency of the beneficial chemical constituents in their oils (i.e. no fertilizers, additives or synthetics). The company refers to this level of quality control as “certified pure, therapeutic grade” (cptg), or “beyond organic”.
I find that level of quality control to be quite commendable & singularly unique among the essential oil providers i’ve looked at. I was wondering if the other essential oil companies you mentioned do similarly rigorous & consistent testing of their product, as i’m not familiar with the companies you mentioned?
I’m reading a quick search about Gas Chromatography/Infra-red Spectroscopy and seeing that it uses radioactive coils. Is this the case for the lavender tests as well?
It is preferable to use hydrosols when working with cats as they are gentler for their sensitive nature than the essential oils. However that does not meant that all oils are toxic. Essential oils can be used with cats as long as they are used properly ie properly diluted and not applied directly to the cat's fur. There are some oils, however, such as tea tree that can be especially toxic if misused and so it is preferable to get proper instruction before using them.
As with any obsessive compulsive behaviour the first thing to do is to visit the vets to see whether the behaviour has an underlying pathology. Once we know more about the nature of the problem we can then address it properly. Due to his age I would suspect that he may have pain in the areas that he is licking especially in the legs (arthritis) and is trying to soothe his pain with his behaviour.
In my opinion all essential oils that are to be used for any reason should be what they call 'therapeutic grade' ie up to the standards that you mention. If they are not therapeutic grade you run the risk of using lower class oils that may not be pure and/or are adulterated. All the essential oil companies I have mentioned produce only the purest therapeutic grade oils.
I use doTerra oils for the most part…but also have some Mountain Rose oils….are they as good?
Im looking for charts that show flex points on horses and dogs will this book help me with this??
No, lots of other good info, but not those points.
Hi, it is never a good idea to experiment with essential oils internally, unless you are a medical herbalist or trained in aromatic medicine. I do not know what the do Terra blend contains, and prefer not to use blends with animals, lavender is not anthelmintic (worm expelling) so probably doing no good, but will not harm your dog at that dosage, oregano can be harsh on the digestive tract. Personally I think that using herbs is a safer and more effective option for controlling worms than essential oils. Essential oil companies I recommend in the USA include but are not limited to:
Mountain Rose Herbs (although their herbs and base oils are better than their essential oils)
I am wondering if you are at all familiar with doTERRA as a company or with what the CPTG standard actually is. If not, please do a little research before generalizing and stating “the main aim is making money rather than ensuring the individual quality of essential oils” if you knew anything at all about doTERRA, their philosophy or their practices, you would know that could not be farther from the truth; regardless of your opinion of MLM theory. Do all companies not aim to make money? Because if you know of a place that I can get CPTG quality oils from a producer that is giving them away for the sake of bettering the world, I would truly like to know of such an entity!
You are a “team” that represents itself as knowing much about essential oils and aroma therapy; and as such, people assume that is true and many people seek guidance from you and it is entirely irresponsible for you to make those kinds of generic comments as you are obviously ill-informed on the subject.
I will freely admit that distributing essential oils through Independent Product Consultants who know little to nothing about them or how to use them is a bit odd. But that says nothing of the quality of the product they offer nor of the lengths the executives at doTERRA go to, to source the purest, highest quality oils the world has to offer. And really, do you know of a better way to get the word to the masses about natural, alternative solutions to our health issues than through our friends and families? Have you noticed a spike in people interested in using essential oils in the past 5 years? Have you wondered why?
And also, so your readers are aware, an essential oil label can say “100% pure, therapeutic grade” and still be synthetic. Personally I prefer an essential oil that has been run through not only gas chromatography and infrared spectroscopy but also mass spectrometry, and doTERRA throws in microbial and organileptic testing for good measure. If you know of another company that goes to that extent to ensure the quality of their essential oil products, could you PLEASE let me know! Cause I’d like to check them out!
I checked out Do Terra the first time someone tried to sell me their oils (which must have been just as you started now I think about it) and decided I preferred the oils I use, which I buy either from the producer or people who know the producer personally and are of the highest quality. All the companies I use test their oils with GC/MS, and for contaminants, as any reputable seller of oils will do.
There are many passionate people selling good quality essential oils at reasonable prices (I find do Terra expensive) and find it childish that both Young Living and do Terra claim to be the 'only' company selling good quality oils. I have no objection to anyone making money, but am concerned that trying to supply the demand for a consistent product in an MLM has to compromise quality. Essential oil yields are variable from year to year, and like good wine there are vintages that are better than others, which is why I like to keep a range of suppliers.
As you mention the therapeutic grade label means nothing, knowing your supplier personally, and educating your nose is the only true guarantee, even a GC/MS wont tell you that the constituents you are seeing are from natural sources, just that they are balanced in a way that you are expecting.
I respect your mission to help people live more natural lives, and am not saying your product is not good, and is definitely better quality than some essential oils out there, I simply prefer to buy my oils in a different way, just as I prefer to buy my vegetables at a farmers market.
I am flattered that you value my opinion highly enough to feel threatened by it, but it is just my opinion and my preferences and I think it would be irresponsible of me not to tell it as I see it.
In peace, Nayana
Do you know of any studies regarding the safety or toxicity of geranium essential oil with external application for dogs? Or if ingested?
