Use essential oils as sunscreen


We get asked almost daily in our safety group about using essential oils with pets (usually dogs and cats). Because the usage information for dogs and cats is not the same, I have split the information in two posts: this one for dogs, and one for cats .

Before I get into the lists of essential oils which are safe to use, I want you to understand some basic safety information:

Caroline Ingraham is recognized as the go-to expert when it comes to using essential oils with animals. She founded the approach, referred to as applied zoopharmacognosy, which allows animals to self-select the essential oils which will benefit them the most.

Essential oils are more powerful than you might think. They're wonderful natural healers - strong and effective, but with practically no side-effects and no addictions. You can use aromatherapy remedies to support your health simply by using essential oils for the right problem at the right time.

Choosing the right oils is easy with an essential oil use chart like this one - it's a simple, quick way to find essential oil uses for health problems from asthma to headaches to weight loss. Even though in the U.S. lots of these ailments are covered by the  Affordable Care Act , it wouldn't hurt to try out specific oils if it can prevent a trip to the doctor's office, right?

Please note that not all the essential oil statements below have been evaluated by the US Food & Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Many of the aromatic compound of plants are volatile - that is they quickly dissipate into the air, even at room temperature. Essential oils or volatile oils are the most important group of chemicals from plants that make the smells (or aromas) what they are.

The word 'essential' is used because the fragrance is the essence of many plants and 'volatile' simply describes their volatility. Each volatile oil is made up of up to 100 different components which gives the plant the ability to build unique essential oils each with their biological activity and mood and emotion-affecting properties.

Essential oils aren't true oils like almond oil, olive oil or flaxseed oil - these are called fixed oils. Fixed oils don't vaporise the way essential oils do, and they are much heavier.
