This week I received a very large bottle of tea tree oil and was excited to use it.  At the same time, I was reminded of the conversation I had with a friend earlier this week when I thought about using it for Maggie.

Her cat received some toxicity from the essential oils my friend puts on her face and neck. The cat must have licked her in a place with too much oil and a few hours later they were at the vet’s office since the cat wasn’t eating.

She and I discussed both essential oils as well as tea tree oil, which one would think would be a great natural way to treat abrasions and minor infections. Unfortunately, it’s not. There are many articles on the subject, but here is a great one:…/what-you-should-know-about-tea-t…

At the same time, tea tree oil is super for humans. I recently posted about using it as a facial cleanser and I love using it with water to disinfect sheets, floors, and furniture.

I recommend always having some in the house, but just keep it away from your cats and dogs!
