Oils + Our Four-Legged Friends

“Are essential oils safe for my pets?”

It’s a question we hear over and over again and it makes total sense. We use essential oils to help support our bodies, so why wouldn’t we want to do the same for our four-legged family members? Well the good news is you absolutely can, but as with anything we use around our animals, we always want to be sure they are safe and effective. Luckily  Young Living has taken all the guesswork out of the situation by creating an entire line of products formulated especially for our favorite furry friends!

If you haven’t checked out the Animal Scents line of products, now is the time to do so because it is a game-changer for sure. From dental care to tasty treats and most everything in between, this line of products has just what you need to safely care for your cats and dogs while introducing them to the wonderful world of essential oils! Let’s check them out, shall we?

Infect Away

This amazing blend of Myrrh, Patchouli, Dorado Azul, Palo Santo, and Ocotea essential oils is formulated to help keep your pets clean without feeling the need to throw them in the bathtub 24/7 (since we all know how much they love to avoid a good cleaning). Simply put 8-10 drops in a 1oz. Spray bottle, fill with distilled water, and spray your pets down for a quick skin-cleansing spritz! Be sure to dilute your spray depending on the size of your animal, especially those smaller species!


Help your pets feel their best with this delicious blend of Geranium, Frankincense, Myrrh, Lavender, and Hyssop. We love to just add a roller fitment to the top of the bottle to easily apply to any area of need! Once again, be sure to follow label instructions and dilute properly for the size of your animal.


We aren’t the only mammals to experience tummy troubles. Help reduce feelings of discomfort for your fur babies by diffusing or directly applying this helpful blend of Ginger, Anise, Peppermint, Cumin, Spearmint, Rosemary, Juniper, Fennel, and Patchouli. Simply diffuse into the air or apply straight to their abdomen to naturally comfort their bellies.


Similar to Infectaway, this blend of Patchouli, Lavender, Mountain Savory, Palo Santo, Cistus, Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle help to cleanse and purify your pet’s skin. Simply add a roller fitment top to your bottle and apply to their skin! Again, be sure to follow label instructions and dilute properly for the size of your animal.


This blend packs a punch with this extensive list of ingredients: Tangerine, Lavender, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, German Chamomile, Frankincense, Valerian, Ylang Ylang, Black Spruce, Geranium, Davana, Orange, Rue, Helichrysum, Hyssop, Spanish Sage, Patchouli, Coriander, Blue Tansy, Bergamot, Rose, Lemon, Jasmine, Roman Camomile, and Palmarosa. Wow! T-Away was formulated to help support a new level of emotional freedom for your sweet pets. Help them connect to feelings of joy by applying this generous blend of essential oils to the bottom of their paws or foot flanks. We are so sure they’ll thank you for it the next time there is a thunderstorm, fireworks, or you have to run to the grocery store without them!

The Young Living Animal Scents line also includes the following products:

  • Animal Scents Shampoo
  • Animal Scents Dental Pet Chews
  • Animal Scents Cat Treats
  • Animal Scents Ointment (which is awesome for extra dry human skin too just FYI!)

Wanna know the best part? As if supporting your pets with essential oils wasn’t benefit enough, a portion of all proceeds from the Animal Scents line goes to support Vital Ground, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the habitat of wild-roaming wildlife! We’re all about the win/wins in life and this certainly sounds like one to us!

As a quick disclaimer, we always recommend discussing any potential new product use with your trusted veterinarian first just to be on the extra safe side. Once you’ve done that, log into your Young Living account to check out the entire line of Animal Scents products and begin confidently supporting the well-being of your pets with the use of our awesome essential oils!
