TIPS FOR USING ESSENTIAL OILS WITH DOGS


The oils used in these recipes are all considered safe for pets, but that doesn't mean all dogs will accept them.  Some dogs are more sensitive, and some just won't like the smell.

Both of my dogs liked the six natural essential oil recipes for dogs that I make, but yours may not like some of the scents just like you may not like the scent of some oils.

Let your pet sniff the product before you use it.  If they react negatively, then don't use it on them.

When you are diffusing or using sprays, always let your dog leave the room if they want to.  

Start slowly and gradually use more oils with your pets while they get used to them.  I started with one drop of the blend in the diffuser and increased by a drop each time I used it.

PAW BALM RECIPE


This recipe can help protect your dog's delicate paws.  These can get sore or sensitive in the winter from the cold or in the summer from hot sidewalks.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 tablespoon beeswax
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond oil
  • 2 drops ginger essential oil
  • 3 drops juniper berry essential oil
  • 2 lip balm tubes

DIRECTIONS


Melt the beeswax and coconut oil in a double boiler or in a glass bowl in the microwave.  If you microwave it, use 30 second intervals until melted.

Add the almond oil and essential oils.  Stir well for at least 30 seconds.  Pour into the lip balm tubes.  I had a little left over, so I poured it into a little souffle cup to use later.
