The Benefits of Essential Oils for Animals ~ Thieves






Thieves contains Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus radiata, and Rosemary.

Thieves is an incredible mainstay in animal therapies. With antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic, antibacterial, and immune-boosting properties, there are many indications for its use. Thieves is considered a "hot" oil for topical use, so one must take care when administering this oil in animals, especially in dogs, cats, and smaller animals. Thieves is most commonly used orally for many needs, primarily as an antibiotic.

The general diffusion of Thieves is also found to reduce allergy symptoms both in humans and in animals. Thieves diffusion also reduces the desire of insects and external parasites to stay in the vicinity of the diffusion.

Birds & Exotics: Water diffusion of Thieves is the most common route of administration, and is often performed with caging or tenting (3-4 drops in the diffuser). Thieves can be added to foods, but is not often added to drinking water due to the "hot" nature of the oil blend. Indirect diffusion of Thieves is commonly used as well by placing a drop or two on cotton balls or on cage papers. All respiratory conditions will benefit.

Cats: Thieves is generally used for cats as described within all of the guidelines when used for birds & exotics. For oral consumption, please refer to the Animal Desk Reference guide.

Dogs & Larger Animals: There are so many conditions that benefit from the use of Thieves essential oil that it is difficult to list them all! Ringworm, fungal skin infections, bacterial skin infections, and more benefit from additional Thieves added to Animal Scents Shampoo, Thieves Household Cleaner, or Animal Scents Ointment for application. Any hoof condition in a horse seems to benefit from neat Thieves application, even laminitis. Application amounts and usage in combination with other Young Living products vary, so please ask the person who invited you to consult the ADR for further description of products, and for more information on their many uses!
