Why are some Essential Oils Dangerous to Animals?

Many animals lack the enzymes for breaking down the compounds of Essential Oils, and this can lead to poisoning or build-up of toxicity that will eventually cause them to be sick.

 

Cats, for instance, lack a liver enzyme (which most other mammals do) called glucuronyl transferase that helps to eliminate compounds through hepatic glucuronidation.

Birds have an extremely sensitive respiratory system that can respond negatively to certain compounds inhaled.
