ARE ESSENTIAL OILS SAFE TO USE AROUND PETS?
We should always exercise caution when using essential oils around our pets. Keep all essential oil and aromatherapy products (like diffusers) out of reach of pets. Keep open bottles away from pets to avoid internal consumption. We do not recommend the topical use of essential oils on pets, as they have a strong sense of smell and cannot get rid of the oil if they don’t like it or it is disturbing them. When diffusing essential oils around pets, always diffuse in a well-ventilated area and leave an option for them to remove themselves from the space, such as leaving a door open. Every animal is different, so carefully observe how each animal responds when introducing an essential oil for the first time. If irritation occurs, discontinue the use of the essential oil. We recommend seeking medical attention if ingestion of essential oil occurs.
ADDING ESSENTIAL OILS
This air purifier has been certified by the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) as an allergy-friendly product. Please note that allergy friendliness is no longer guaranteed if the Essential Oil Scent Tray function is used, since essential oils may lead to allergic reactions.
WARNING: Putting oil anywhere but the oil tray will damage the air purifier.

  1. The oil tray is located on the side of the air purifier above the nightlight ring.
