Teacher’s Guide to Cruelty-Free Essential Oils

As an extension of a teacher’s personal style, the classroom can and should be a comfortable, welcoming, and safe space for all. And what’s more welcoming than the calming scent of cruelty-free essential oils?

Helping animals is all in the details, and we have the perfect way to enjoy aromatherapy without hurting anyone. Too good to be true? Nope. This is (smell-good) magic. Here are some cruelty-free essential-oil brands:

🌺 Aura Cacia

🌺 Bare Ethics

🌺 Clay Lotus

🌺 Mayie

🌺 Tender Essence

Note: Essential oils can be beneficial to companion animals, but please be careful with them. Use high-quality oils in a diffuser, or apply a few drops to areas that they cannot access, such as collars.
