Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A SNIFF-IT?
A patented individual portable handmade diffusing system to use with high quality essential oils.
WHAT IS THE HISTORY OF THE SNIFF-IT?
Blue Sky Prairie Textiles yardage has been used to produce blankets, rugs, upholstery, pillows, mittens, garments, handbags and now the newest contribution:
The Sniff-it*. Smallest in size, it is the largest in concept of all the work done at Blue Sky. The custom handmade design is portable and easy to use. The stitch structure as well as felting techniques employed makes a product perfect for accepting essential oil** and dispersing it over time from the Sniff-it pillow. The intent of the Sniff-it is to help canines (and now humans) to use their sense of smell to easily inhale the positive stimulation directly to their brain and body.
* Sniff-it TM patented
**We enthusiastically recommend using animalEO essential oil on your Sniff-its.
HOW CAN I USE A SNIFF-IT?
The intent is to provide individual access to the benefits of specific oils in a controlled and smooth diffusion. It allows access without direct application to the animal’s body. The Sniff-it can be applied and removed at will. The medical and behavioral support information is available from the specific manufacturer of the essential oil in addition to the instruction provided by your veteriarian. (ex. animalEO oils are specifically made for use with animals, are compounded by a veterinarian and have an excellent and abundant amount of useful information on their website (animalEO.info)
HOW MANY KINDS OF SNIFF-ITS DO I HAVE TO CHOOSE FROM?
HOW LONG DOES THE OIL APPLICATION LAST?
Blue sky has always used animalEO essential oils for our Sniff-its and finds that the oil is “good” for 9-12 hours. Note: since an essential oil is not a perfume, the scent of an oil does not necessarily relate to the strength of the diffusion.
HOW ARE THEY CLEANED?
All animal Sniff-its can be cleaned with a mild soap and water. Cleaning instructions are printed on the packaging. The Sniff-it can also be left out of its storage bag to evaporate for 24-36 hours.
CAN I LEAVE COLLAR SNIFF-IT ON ALL THE TIME?
I take mine off and put on as needed to meet specific circumstances. In chronic cases, the Sniff-it can stay on the collar or in the setting and re-oiled as necessary.
WHY ARE SOME COLLAR SNIFF-ITS WIDER THAN OTHERS?
The sizes differ to provide a secure fit to the collar width and to fit each dog’s size and essential oil requirement.
HOW DO I CHOOSE AN ESSENTIAL OIL?
By reading the educational information on the manufacturers website and publications or following your veterinarian’s advice. Ex: animalEO.info has detailed information on each and all of their oils.
WHAT DO I GET FOR MY INVESTMENT?
Each package contains: the Sniff-it, sample bottle of animalEO essential oil, storage bag, use & care instructions and contact information.
