Essential Oils and Grief
One of the easiest ways to use essential oils during this time of grief is a diffuser. I use the Diffuser with the intermittent function of 5 min on and 5 min off, which is the best for animals. When we use diffusers we always make sure the animals can leave the area and we never close them in with the diffuser on.
One of the oils I recommend for grief in the diffuser is Wild Orange as it is well known for use in depression in animals as it is a very uplifting oil and has numerous benefits.
