One natural health method involves using essential oils, which is part of the field of aromatherapy. Essential oils are the volatile oils produced within the seeds, flowers, leaves, bark, roots or resins of aromatic plants. Plants produce essential oils to attract insects for pollination, repel pests, and resist microorganisms that can destroy the plant.
Humans can use essential oils as health remedies, but be careful about giving essential oils to your cat. Cats can’t handle many ingredients in essential oils, which makes those oils toxic to cats. Just remember that what might work for your health could be dangerous to your cat.
