This list of Q's and A’s is by no means comprehensive! Feel free to reach out to us with specific questions that aren’t answered here.
Are essential oils safe to diffuse around pets?
Always talk to your veterinarian before diffusing essential oils around pets. Animals metabolize toxins differently than humans, and therefore an essential oil that is harmless to humans could be potentially dangerous in a pet. Another factor to consider is whether your pet is taking any medications, as essential oils could interact with those medications.
In general, once you have gotten the green light from the veterinarian, ensure that you are diffusing in an open, well-ventilated area of the house. Keep a close eye on your pet and check for any signs of discomfort. If your pet is reacting negatively, stop diffusing immediately and air out the room. Never leave your pet unattended with a diffuser in the room.
Cats are a special case, since they are more sensitive to chemicals than other animals. They are also more susceptible to ingesting chemicals due to their love for grooming. Atmos Essentials does not recommend diffusing essential oils around cats.
One last note: essential oils are highly concentrated liquids! Store them in a secure location, away from direct sunlight and out of reach of children or pets.
Can I diffuse essential oils while pregnant?
Essential oils are extremely potent and can interact with the body’s systems in powerful ways. Because of this, always check with your doctor before diffusing any essential oils.
Are your essential oils therapeutic grade?
Let’s let you in on a little secret: “therapeutic grade” is just a marketing term! There is no independent grading system for essential oils, and because of this leeway, a leading essential oil company decided to brand their oils as “therapeutic grade” to make their brand stand out. We could just as easily brand our oils as “imperial grade” and it would make the same amount of difference. Our oils are of the highest quality, free from additives, synthetics, and dilutants.
Why is your essential oil less expensive than other companies?
We keep things simple! The most expensive essential oil companies rely on multi-level marketing to sell their products. We don’t have to worry about funding a pyramid of distributors. We buy in bulk from local and international farmers, and sell directly to you!
Are your essential oils diluted in any way?
Our essential oils are of the highest quality and are free from any additives, synthetics, or dilutants.
