RABBITS, and other pocket pets (like Guinea Pigs, Chinchillas, Sugar Gliders, etc.), are a bit more sensitive to Essential Oils because of their sensitive (1) respiratory systems and (2) hindgut fermentation system. Therefore, caution should be used when it comes to Essential Oils and rabbits.
More dilution (a 0.5% dilution or one drop per 10–15 mL carrier oil) is recommended for topical use with rabbits, and water diffusion is preferred.
With these guidelines in mind, what oils are helpful for rabbits and similar animals?
• The DIGESTIVE BLEND is the best choice for any digestive issues.
• PEPPERMINT and the RESPIRATORY BLEND are great to diffuse for respiratory issues.
• LEMON can be used in your rabbits’ water for immune support, but only in very small quantities (one drop per liter of drinking water).
• The PROTECTIVE BLEND or CLEANER CONCENTRATE can be used to clean cages as a non-toxic cleaner and can help boost their immune systems.
