I’m waiting patiently for a PE that I had recreated.  So excited!

I just added a 1000mcg version of Peace and Calm to my plans. I work in home health care. I’m in close contact with people who might find it annoying to have someone’s obvious perfume in their home. I’m thinking an extra strong phero would mean using less, therefore less scent. Just a mild, fresh-washed laundry scent to mask it. 

I’m finding my cats don’t like the pheros, and they tell me about it! One cat in particular has noticed my wrist points and will actually get up out of my lap, turn around and yowl at me in a pissed off tone. Then she tries to lay across both of them to prevent the off-gassing. They especially hate the sprays - I can get away with the roll ons around my cats easier. 

 

Edit to add:  Hey wait... as a 60/40 spray lover, I think I may be erring in which characteristic is annoying to me cats. If it’s the immediate blast, I can do that away from them, maybe it is the OIL part that annoys them?

Now I’m thinking I should choose instead toward 100% alcohol, just be away from then while it’s drying. Enjoy my Balm Balm’s initial relaxing spritz & drydown, THEN join them.

Ya think that’s better, cat wise?

 

Melisse, are you sure it's the pheros? What scents are you using along with the pheros? Are you using any essential oils? Asking because there are certain scents that are toxic for cats, and it's possible they are responding to the cover scent rather than the pheros. Cats and dogs usually like pheros, but it's also possible that you are wearing too much for their taste and you can dial it back a bit.

I guess it could be the scent I’m using, but with different scents and different cats, I haven’t found the pattern yet - maybe I was watching for the wrong issue?

 

ive heard some essential oils are toxic to cats, but I thought that was only when they are forced to lick it off, because someone applied it to their skin for holistic reasons? 

Just smelling certain oils can be bad too🤯?

 

ETA - I’m currently using just LP fragrances. Which leads me to another question - I understand you don’t use artificial stabilizers (or whatever chemicals ordinarily go into perfume). Does this make it less objectionable to environmentally sensitive people?

Essential Oils shouldn't even be diffused in the air if you have cats, they absorb toxic levels just thru the air which build up in their system and cause liver failure and death. I have noticed that some minty notes will make a cat wince and move away, so I never force them to be near it as it's likely toxic. (Whenever I apply my minty hand cream, my cat River leaves the room). I haven't had that issue with perfumes and my cats, but I would check the notes on that perfume if I did, and not wear it around them. Here is a list of essential oils that are poisonous to cats.

  • Lavender
  • Wintergreen
  • Peppermint
  • Citrus (including lemon oil)
  • Teatree
  • Pine
  • Eucalyptus
  • Cinnamon
  • Pennyroyal
  • Sweet birch
  • Clove
  • Ylang ylang
  • Oregano
  •  Sage
  •  Thyme
  •  Birch
  •  Bergamot
  •  Spruce
  •  Any other oils containing phenols

In answer to your last Q, yes, we have had tremendously good luck with people who have said they can wear and enjoy our scents where they never could deal with commercial scents. Our perfuming is very clean, and the oils are heavy, both which contribute to that success. What works well for us may not work well for our four legged friends though.  :purr:

On that note, I've had two dogs that would both shiver violently when exposed to citronella EO.

I’m working on a guessing game for new release notes that I’ll be posting in the Facebook Chat group tomorrow. I’ll post a link to it tomorrow!

Good timing, summer releases are about to happen! Lots of forum changes, cosmetic and whatnot, it will take a minute to get used to but you'll get used to it soon enough. Here's a link on the current Forum Upgrade if you're curious. Feb and April releases had some really lovely hits, too.

Great list to keep handy. Saved that.
