Peaceful Cat Spritz is the perfect answer for the anxious and stressed feline. Formulated by a certified Master Herbalist with USDA organic hydrosols that are safe for cats, this blend contains the hydrosols most recommended by aromatherapists to help with anxiety and depression in animals.
The hydrosols in Peaceful Cat Spritz can help the more sensitive feline cope with their anxiety and improve their mood when used daily and during stressful situations like moving, vet visits, home construction or new additions to the family. This highly researched formula can also help animals in multiple cat households more easily cope with the stress that can arise from bullying and other behaviors.
Available in 4 oz spray top bottle
What are Hydrosols?
Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, are the aromatic water that remains after steam-distilling botanical material in the process used to create essentail oils. So hydrosols are basically a byproduct of essential oil production. The plant matter used in the distillation process imparts the hydrosol with the water-soluble aromatic and therapeutic properties of the plant. Unlike essential oils that should be diluted prior to application on the skin, hydrosols are much gentler than their essential oil counterparts and can generally be used directly on the skin without further dilution.
Why Can Essential Oils be Dangerous for Cats?
People can detoxify and eliminate the aromatic constituents found in essentail oils. However, cats are known to be deficient in their ability to eliminate compounds through hepatic glucuronidation (they lack the enzyme glucuronyl tranferases). Glucuronidation is an important detoxification mechanism present in most animals except cats. Lack of this important detoxification mechanism in cats may result in slower elimination and the build up of toxic metabolites in the body causing toxicity problems and liver damage.
Most people are aware of the dangers of topical and oral administration of essential oils, but they are generally unaware that inhalation of essential oils can also be unsafe for your cat. Precautions should be used when diffusing essential oils or using them around the home, since the aromatic constituents will be absorbed into the blood from the lungs and can lead to the same toxicity issues as topical use.
It is believed that some oils are worse than others, especially those high in phenols like peppermint, clove, cinnamon and thyme; and high in monoterpene hydrocarbons like citrus oils. We recommend steering clear of all essentail oils around cats unless you are very experienced in their use.
A proprietary blend of USDA ORGANIC hydrosols: Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Chamomile (Matricaria recutita), Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) and Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
Spritz directly onto your cat or spritz onto your hands and run through your cat’s coat several times per day. Every half hour for thunderstorms, vet visits or other stressful situations. Shake well before using.
Important: Remember, your cat is going to lick his coat and the hydrosol is going to be ingested so you want to use only a small amount and not soak your cat. For external use only on unbroken skin. Do not spray directly onto face. Refrigerate for longer term storage.
