I have never used essential oils for diabetes, so I have no basis in experience, except for being careful not to expose my dog to certain essential oils. Since many of us diabetics have pets, I believe it’s essential to know that some essential oils are toxic to pets!
Some research suggests that there may be some essential oils that can be safely added to a diabetes care plan with significant results.
