Precautions for the use of Essential Oils with your bunny
  • Do not take internally, seek medical advise immediately if swallowed, and drink milk.
  • Do not try to make the swollower vomit;
  • Never apply undiluted essential oils to the skin, always follow the guidelines on the bottle (this varies from oil to oil);
  • Do not use essential oils when pregnant (unless under the supervision of a qualified aromatherapist;
  • Keep away from the eyes, in the event of an accident bathe eyes with water and seek medical advice;
  • Keep oils away from children, always seek the advice of a qualified aromatherapist before using any oil on a baby or a child.;
  • If itching occurs after use contact a qualified aromatherapist;
  • The following essential oils can cause a photo-toxic reaction; bergamot, cumin, grapefruit, lemon, orange bitter, tagetes and verbena, these should not be used unless under the supervision of a qualified aromatherapist.
  • Do not use eucalyptus, hyssop, peppermint, rosemary, sage or thyme if suffering from epilepsy, high blood pressure or taking homeopathic remedies;
  • Essential oils are flammable keep away from naked flame also keep away from polished, varnished and plastic surface as they can dissolve them.
  • Basic safety factors to observe when handling essential oils include keeping the room well ventilated as it is possible to overdose if in constant contact by inhalation and occasionally opening a window or door will be sufficient to clear the air.
  • Spillages should be handled carefully and mopped up with tissues if a small amount but try to avoid the oil coming into contact with your hands and dispose of tissues in an outside dustbin as oils are volatile and therefore inflammable. If, however the spillage is of a larger amount then greater care is needed. Open a window and leave the room shutting the door and opening other windows in the property.
  • Return after an hour and tidy any broken glass using rubber gloves, leave the room and dispose of getting some fresh air and drink a glass of water. After another 30 minutes return and clear the spillage with paper or sand into a plastic bag and dispose in the dustbin, again get some fresh air and drink water.
  • Remember to always wash hands or rub with base oil then wash hands after the spillage has been removed to remove any essential oil that has come into contact with the skin.

  • Essential oils should never be stored in plastic bottles;
  • Amber coloured bottles should be used;
  • Blue glass bottles can be used but they must be kept in the dark.;
  • Bottles should have close fitting lids tightly replaced after each use and a washer/wad to prevent escape of vapour or entry of air.
  • Never leave essential oils on a polished, varnished or plastic surface;
  • Keep essential oils at a cool temperature especially in respect of citrus oils or oils extracted from herbs.
  • Essential oils can be kept in a specially designed box and for extra security especially in the home where children may have access to the oils keep in a metal cabinet with a security lock at a unreachable height from unwanted hands as some oils when swallowed can be fatal.
  • All bottles of essential oils should be dated and be disposed of when out of date.




Quick Tips


Wicker balls and rings make great toys for rabbits and keep their teeth in good shape.

Make sure you provide plenty of fibre in your bunny's diet. Always have hay available and keep pellets or mix to a minimum. Rabbits love fresh greens too!



Does your cage have a front door like this. Do not let your bunny use this front "door". Many a bunny has seriously injured its leg in the bars.

If you have to use this door, cover the bars with wood or Instead buy a side opening cage and make a ramp if necessary.
