Essential Oils for Dogs



I have dogs and use essential oils on them ALL THE TIME! I also give them Sulfuzyme and BLM daily in their food. My St Bernard is 14 yrs. old!

Essential oils can be applied topically and by inhalation. Great results have been achieved on very "difficult" dogs with Raindrop therapy.

Topical Application is the easiest and very effective method, because the oils are applied directly to "where they are needed". The oils penetrate the skin and are absorbed quickly and then enter the bloodstream. 

Oils can be added to a spray bottle with water and then sprayed on the dog. You can also add it to the Shampoo, even though I highly recommend Young Living's "Animal Scents" Shampoo for use on your dog.

Another wonderful product for skin conditions on dogs is the Animal Scents Ointment. It soothes hot spots and eliminates skin rashes quickly and safely. Animal Scents Shampoo is great for your pets coat. It is completely chemical free and the wonderful scent lasts for days!

Remember to dilute oils before use. Use a carrier vegetable oils, such as olive oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, can be used.

Some essential oils are not suitable for ingestion at all and can be toxic to dogs, therefore oral application of essential oils to dogs should only be done under the supervision of a holistic veterinarian.
