I started using it on my cat (I think she has fleas, but not sure, I know she has something on her) and she really seems to like it.It seems to calm her some. She also must think it tastes good as she licks it from my fingers and then cleans herself. I was wondering if you know if the oils that are in it are good for her. She hasn't gotten sick, so I'm not concerned, just wondering if you looked into that and know. I know she likes it because she actually runs to me when I start shaking the bottle and that is not a normal thing she does!!Thanks for all you do, I love your products especially

Here are two questions I receive from time-to-time. I would like to address them here for all of my customers. "Are your products Organic and non-GMO? Why don't you get certified?" 95% of our ingredients are non-gmo. The other 5%, I'm not positive about. As far as organic; I purchase them when the price is comparable. To become certified organic, and non-gmo is very costly and labor intensive. Frankly, the majority of my customers could not afford our products if we were to go that route. Our prices would probably about double. Many of our customers can barely afford the cost of our products now. The amount of paperwork and "hoops" to jump through is amazing. I have checked it out. Did you know that the "organic" designation is a trademark owned by the USDA? There are certain chemical pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers that are allowed on organic fields. The rain is coming down through our chemical-laden atmosphere and layering these "organic" items with the same chemicals

PERSONAL CARE TOXINS : A PARTIAL LISTOf the more than 15,000 chemicals found in personal care products, 60% are considered toxic. Here is a list of the ones you will find most often, and why you should avoid using them. Of course, none of these are ever used in Healing-Scents.com Toxin-Free products. While this list may seem extensive, and boring, we want you to know that use of any of the chemical agents listed below can have severe adverse effects on your skin. The FDA allows these ingredients, which are by and large very inexpensive, to be used in small quantities. The problem is that most of them have cumulative effects–they add together as you continue to use them. Topping it all off, imagine this–if ONE of these is bad for you; imagine what they do in COMBINATION with each other. We are convinced they make a TOXIC SOUP, and hope you will learn to avoid every one of them.
