Essential oils are VERY unhealthy for cats. They cannot metabolise
the oils properly and have a hard time ridding their bodies of the
chemicals. They can inhale them, just like we do and this can be bad
too for the cat if they inhale large amounts. (large amounts being
somewhat subjective as cats have a far more advanced smelling system
than we!)
