Unsafe Essential Oils for Dogs

 

Anise / Camphor / Hissop / Juniper* / White Thyme / Yarrow      Because of uterine stimulation or possible toxicity, avoid using these oils on dogs, especially on pregnant dogs.

*The oil of Juniper berry is perfectly safe, but the Juniper wood oil is toxic to the kidneys.

Birch / Wintergreen        Some aromatherapy formulae found on websites suggest using the oils birch and wintergreen for joint pains caused by arthritis. However, dermal use of these two oils has been proven to be toxic as they contain high levels of methyl salicylate. Ingestion can cause severe poisoning and death.

Cassia / Clove leaf and bud    These oils can cause dermal irritation and possible toxicity to both people and pets.

Horseradish / Mustard / Tansy    Due to the pungent properties of these oils, they are considered to be hazardous and may cause severe dermal irritation.

Pennyroyal     Although this oil is effective in repelling flea, it is also highly toxic to the kidneys and the nervous system. It is also a known abortifacient. Avoid using this oil on pets and yourself!

Rue    This oil is a terrible photosensitizer.

 Wormwood       Both the herb and the oil wormwood are toxic to pets and should be avoided at all costs, even though some people suggest using wormwood for treating worm infestation. There has been reports of wormwood essential oil causing renal failure in humans. It is also a known fact that wormwood causes seizures, and possesses very high oral and dermal toxicity.
