This article will explain essential oils and the main dangers, symptoms, and signs to look for regarding oil toxicity in pets. It will also explain why certain essential oils are beneficial to one species of bird but are deadly to another. Why you should be very wary of using essential oils around cats. And why a dog should always have an escape route when you are using essential oils around the home.
Essential oils can pose a toxic risk to any household pet, or small animal, but can be especially dangerous to cats. This is because cats, unlike other animals, lack a particular enzyme in their liver responsible for the metabolizing and elimination of certain toxic compounds. It is because of the lack of this enzyme that I do not recommend applying essential oil directly onto the fur, or skin, of a cat. And don’t be fooled by the labeling found on many essential oil products that convince you they are cat friendly.

To clean a toilet, cut a lemon in half, then wipe the lemon around the toilet. Sprinkle kosher salt or baking soda over the lemon so that it acts like a scourer for any stubborn stains or bits of dirt. Finally, use a non microfiber damp cloth to wipe away any residue and buff to a shine. Dad's tip: Limes are also high in citric acid so if you prefer the fresh smell of limes then choose these instead. Alternatively choose a grapefruit for those larger areas.

Mirum has therefore been designed with the core fundamentals of being fully biodegradable and 100% recyclable. This means that not only does Mirum contain no petrochemicals but it fits nicely into the circular system. In other words, Mirum is manufactured, used, returned to NFW, disassembled, and then reassembled into fresh Mirum material. Any Mirim not returned to NFW will return to the soil and biodegrade naturally, releasing its nutrients back into the soil. In this way no inputs are lost, extra CO2 is not created and the conditions for a circular system are met.
