Dogs love the smell but fleas and ticks don’t. It is healing to their skin and hair, and improves the look and feel of their fur. It can help with digestion problems when rubbed on their tummy. It is recommended that you use the Lemongrass Hydrosol formula externally for your dog rather than full strength as it can be mildly toxic in pure strength.
Is lemongrass essential oil safe for cats? No, they don’t have the enzymes needed to process it, so I would avoid it with cats. They may chew on lemongrass plants in small quantities ocassionally but not enough to hurt them, they know just a nibble is all they can handle.They can usually handle the aroma but not directly on their fur. Always best to be safe as there are other essential oils that are better for cats like Rosemary Essential Oil that can be used as a natural flea repellant.
