If you've taken the time to compare YL oils to any other brand, they are very different. The smell alone will confirm it, but YL does lots of expensive and thorough testing on all of their oils to ensure they are free from synthetics, and are the highest therapeutic value possible. YL has a Seed to Seal promise, and it’s the basis of everything the company stands for.
Most, if not all, of the oils sold on Amazon and in any other store contain synthetics, which are harmful to both people and animals. That’s why I choose to use YL oils and products - to avoid the harmful things that are hidden in the products we commonly purchase. The post also stated that the use of scented candles are used in the home. Fragrance has been shown to be toxic to humans and animals, and unless you’re reading labels, your home is probably filled with it. This is why I have chosen to eliminate scented candles and oil burners such as glade plugins and other toxic products in my home.
Although I do not have cats currently, I know plenty of families who use YL oils who do and have no issues at all with their animals health. Animals are definitely more sensitive to essential oils and when using essential oils with animals you MUST dilute properly, do your research on oils that are safe for animals and above all use common sense.
My dogs are surrounded by essential oils daily and I have applied topically to my dogs with no adverse reactions. I feel perfectly safe diffusing YOUNG LIVING oils around my animals and family and my grandchildren. I trust Young Living oils and know they are safe and beneficial for my family. I urge you to do your own research and do what feels right for you!
For more information, please find a trusted reference guide. There are great Animal specific reference guides out there. Just be careful Googling, because there is a lot of misinformation on the internet. Anyone can write an article and pass it off as fact.
