Great Product, Great Price
Found RMO after doing some research on essential oils and their quality. I also use MLM company to purchase some items only they sell. Needed Melissa oil as an ingredient in a roller ball recipe, so I checked both companies. RMO had the best price - by far, and quality of other oils purchased from RMO have been same as quality from MLM. This is my first use of Melissa. The scent is as described. The effects are calming and uplifting. Can't wait to try new recipes incorporating Melissa.

BEST ANSWER: Hello Mollia!

At this time, we have found insufficient research about using essential oils on or around domestic animals, including procedures and possible reactions. Because of this lack of research, we are unable to advise how to use essential oils with pets.

For more information, we are happy to suggest some great books! Please see below:
