Thanks Sharyl-- I think I'll disregard oils and look at hydrosols instead.

I would never put a drop of essential oil on a cat.  There probably are safe 
ones to use but the majority are harmful.  I don't know about using a 
diffuser.  Some cats are sensitive/allergic to fragrances.  It would depend on 
your cat.

Dear all

Does anyone know anything about the safety of using essential oils in a
kitty household? My aromatherapist friend says:

>>>>There seem to be two schools of thought, one of which
(internet) is
that essential oils in a diffuser can be too strong for cats, but that
hydrosols (also called hydrolats or floral waters) are safe to use,
simply sprayed into the air.  
The other source said that a single drop of essential oil [sweet orange]
in a diffuser was useful to calm cats.

I don't think myself that a drop of essential oil in a diffuser could do
cats much harm.  If this was harmful, I'm sure it would be well known.
I've never seen any warning about not using a diffuser if you have a cat
- or two!<<<<

Thanks! Kerry M.
