8. Pet Care
Pets can also benefit from essential oils. Always be sure to purchase therapeutic grade oils as perfume grade may be harmful when applied topically or ingested. For a homemade flea treatment for dogs, combine 6 drops of Melrose essential oil with 2 drops of Palo Santo oil. Add this to half a cup of distilled water and a tablespoon of liquid Castile soap. Avoid using this mixture on cats as pine and citrus oils can be toxic, but you can substitute the oils for either lavender or cedarwood.
