Pet Essentials

Dilution Because essential oils are highly concentrated and potent, it’s important to understand how to dilute when necessary. A good rule of thumb is to use less rather than more. All Be Young essential oils and blends are classified into three categories Neat, Sensitive, and Photosensitive.

• Neat means less or no dilution is necessary (this does not apply to most animals) • Sensitive means dilution or additional dilution is recommended (see instructions below)

• Photosensitive means the essential oil will react (and can cause burns) if exposed to the UV rays of the sun. Photosensitive oils should not be used if direct sun exposure is expected immediately after use or up to 12 hours after application of oil. Photosensitive oils typically only impact fully hairless breeds and albino animals.
