1. I’m doing some research on cedarwood and cats and came across your article. Being a cat owner and having been formally trained in aromatherapy by Dr. Jane Buckle, a leading authority from the U.K., I find a few things in the article that need to be addressed. Aromatherapy is not another word for diffusion. It means using essential oil therapy and all the ways that can be done. Diffusion is only one method of aromatherapy. Cats can lick everywhere on their body except behind the head/top of their necks because of their flexible spine. If an oil is not supposed to be ingested, then that is the only safe place to put it. Otherwise, they will be licking it. And, if there are multiple cats, they often groom one another. So even there isn’t safe from licking cats. I’ve done a lot of research on cedarwood for fleas on cats and from my reading, it seems that the best cedarwood for fleas (and safest for cats) is the eastern red cedar a.k.a. Juniperus Virginiana, not Atlas Cedar.

    1. Hi there!

      Thank you for reaching out and sharing your thoughts on the article. I appreciate your expertise in aromatherapy and your experience as a cat owner. It’s always great to have knowledgeable individuals contribute to the discussion.

      You’re absolutely right – aromatherapy encompasses more than just diffusion, and it involves various methods of using essential oils for therapeutic purposes. I’ll definitely make sure to clarify this in the article to provide a more accurate representation of aromatherapy.

      Regarding the safety of essential oils around cats, your insights are valuable. Cats have a unique physiology, and it’s essential to be cautious about the oils we use around them. I’ll include a note about being cautious when applying oils on cats and the specific safe areas where they can be used.

      I’m glad you brought up the issue of cedarwood for flea control on cats. Your research on the best and safest cedarwood variety, Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus Virginiana), is valuable information that other cat owners should be aware of. I’ll update the article to reflect this important detail.

      Your input is very helpful in improving the accuracy and usefulness of the article. If you have any further insights or suggestions, feel free to share them. Thank you for taking the time to help enhance the information we provide to our readers.

      If you have any more questions or need any assistance, don’t hesitate to ask. Happy researching and take good care of your furry friends!
