ARE ESSENTIAL OILS SAFE TO USE AROUND PETS?We should always exercise caution when using essential oils around our pets. Keep all essential oil and aromatherapyproducts (like diffusers) out of reach of pets. Keep open bottles away from pets to avoid internalconsumption. We do not recommend the topical use of essential oils on pets, as they have a strong sense ofsmell and cannot get rid of the oil if they don’t like it or it is disturbing them. When diffusing essential oilsaround pets, always diffuse in a well-ventilated area and leave an option for them to remove themselvesfrom the space, such as leaving a door open. Every animal is different, so carefully observe how each animalresponds when introducing an essential oil for the first time. If irritation occurs, discontinue the use of theessential oil. We recommend seeking medical attention if ingestion of essential oil occurs.

5. Place the oil tray back in its compartment and pushto close. The scent willstart automatically whenthe air purifier is turned on.
