What essential oils are safe to diffuse around dogs?

I have never worked with dogs before, but I love essential oils, especially citrus oils. I have a question: Do any essential oils or their constituents (citrus oils in this case) pose a risk to dogs?

The reason I ask this is that I am going to start diffusing citrus essential oils to my dog. He is a mixed breed, but mostly a boxer mix, who has a terrible skin condition. When the summer comes around I will be able to apply lotion on him as I don't want him to get rashes from the sun. I have researched the topic, but have not found any definitive answers. If anyone has any information, I would appreciate the help.

Here are the essential oils I want to use:

1-lemon (my dog loves lemons)

2-orange

3-tangelo

4-tangerine

All of these are citrus oils, they are all fairly concentrated, and most of them have been suggested as safe for animals, however, they all have different constituents.

What is your understanding of what is safe to put on an animal? Is there any specific reason that the dog can't take citrus oils? I do not want to put something dangerous on him that is harmful to him. He has not been ill in the past with any illness that was caused by essential oils (I think).

Hi Annie,

First off, congratulations on thinking of trying essential oils for your dog! That is a great idea.

If you are doing this on a regular basis and it is during the summer months, there is a chance the oils will not be absorbed properly into the dogs skin, this could result in a reaction on the dog’s skin, so I suggest not doing this every single day. You could also put something like this in their bath, this would make it easier to get into their skin.

I do not know of anything harmful to dogs that are safe to put on them, however, essential oils have some components that can irritate the skin, so I would make sure to research that this is not something that could be a risk. I am not a vet, but you can ask around and see what others have to say.

I will say that I am pretty new to using essential oils as well, so I would not be sure to use too many different oils at once. I would start with one, see if your dog likes it and go from there.

Here are some of my favorite citrus oils for pets that I have used, there are more on my page:

Thanks so much for the information. You have answered my question completely. My dog has had an allergy to shampoos. He also has eczema. I was wondering if there were any ingredients in this that could cause problems.

Thank you again for all the help, and I hope your dog is feeling better.

Hi Annie,

If your dog has had an allergic reaction to any products it is best to first eliminate them. Since it has an allergy to shampoos it is best to go to the vet for testing. They can test him for a reaction to shampoos or
