Many times, you get your essential oils and then have no idea how ot actually USE them! Sure, you can learn about aromatherapy and the three main ways to use oils: topical, aromatic and internal. Still, that leaves a little practical usage to be desired. Without someone there to actually show you how to do some of these practical things, it is hard to figure it out all on your own! So, I have started a series: Practical Ways to Use Essential Oils! Continue reading Practical Ways to Use Essential Oils: Making Roller Bottles & Droppers
Have you ever wished you could get your hands on a spray for your beloved pooch that smells amazing, is all natural, won’t irritate their skin and actually conditions their skin and coat to minimize flaky dander?
Well, today is your lucky day! I am going to share with you my all natural, awesomely amazing dog spray recipe!
As with any top quality product, a little goes a long way! I have only filled a tiny little 6ml spray bottle to use with my gigantic English Mastiff and it lasts 2-3 weeks before it needs to be refilled! Of course, always use your best judgement and if your pet is sensitive to or allergic to any of the ingredients, omit them or don’t use this spray on them!
The Carrier Oil that I used was Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil. A carrier oil is a neutral oil base that you add fragrant oils to. This way, you can dilute the fragrant oils safely. The fragrant oils blend and mix in the carrier oil, eliminating the need to shake the bottle before each application, like you would have to do if you used water instead. Also, coconut oil is GREAT for a shiny, healthy coat and keeps pup’s skin hydrated without being oily and generally icky. Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil is totally clear, liquid, non-staining and is fully absorbed by the skin and fur, so there’s no stains on furniture to worry about either. Best of all, you can get Fractionated Coconut Oil at the grocery store or through my Essential Oil business! Excited yet? I am!
Here’s the recipe:
Natural Dog Spray
- 2 drops Clove Essential Oil
- 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 5 drops Lemon Essential Oil
- Fractionated Coconut Oil
Mix the ingredients together into a spray bottle. Spray lightly across the dog’s back and sides. Because lemon and clove can sometimes irritate eyes and genitals, avoid those areas entirely. After a light spray, brush the dog’s coat thoroughly to evenly distribute the spray and help it work its way down through fur and undercoats to the skin. It smells great and your dog will prance away with a bright, shiny coat and better feeling skin too!
Allergic Rhinitis, often referred to as Hay Fever or Seasonal Allergies, is an over-reaction of the immune system to a certain item present in our environment. This could be dust, pollen, dander, certain flowers or plants, you can be allergic to just about anything. Most people take an over-the-counter or prescription allergy relief tablet, shot or nasal spray and go on with their day. If you want to break free of the medication and live free and clear, read on!
