We all know how important it is to keep our canine counterparts healthy. We want to share with you a few natural ways essential oils can help keep your dog happy and healthy!
Dogs’ sense of smell is stronger and more developed than that of humans. Therefore, when using essential oils on your dog, we always recommend letting them smell the essential oils prior to putting them directly on their fur or skin.
Remember to always dilute oils before applying them directly to your dog’s fur or skin. The area between their shoulder blades is a great place to apply the diluted oil to ensure it is out of licking reach. Other recommended application areas are the top of the forehead, ear pinna, behind ears, and chest.
Here are great ways to use essential oils:
• Neem, Chamomile, and Sage oil for flea and tick repellent. Also Cedarwood and Citronella can be mixed into a shampoo to keep off fleas and ticks.
• Tea Tree oil for skin infections.
• Our 21 Drops Calm Blend fuses the 100% natural essential oils of Jasmine Flower Oil, Sweet Orange Fruit Rind Oil, and Vetiver Root Oil, in organic Jojoba Oil, and can be used during thunderstorms or nervousness.
Remember to start slowly introducing your dog to the blends to ensure they like the smell. Always allow them plenty of space to move away if they don’t like the scent.
