Because you love and care for your animals and want to do the best for them, it’s always reassuring to find how safe Doterra essential oils for dogs are
It is common knowledge that dogs have a profoundly keen sense of smell. For that reason, it is logical that Doterra oils and dogs would be of great value. However, because of that aforementioned sensitivity, it is a good idea to start slowly and use the smallest amounts of oil when starting any holistic treatment on your pet. This guide will help you find out a bit about essential oils, safety and natural healing for your dog.
Doterra essential oils for dogs can be combined with a carrier oil, one drop per teaspoon of carrier oil such as jojoba, sweet almond or olive oil and massaged into the dog’s skin where there is the thinnest amount of hair, such as the joints, armpits or the groin. For dogs, the massage should last 3 or 4 minutes for the most benefit. Never apply undiluted Doterra oils as it could cause a reaction on the animal’s skin.
A mister can be used to spray the dog’s sleeping area or bedding and a diffuser also works in circulating the oil aroma throughout the house from where the dog will breath it throughout the day or night. Like pet owners, Doterra oils and dogs may have varying effects from different scents. Experimenting will help find the best scent for your furry friend.
As you investigate Doterra oils and dogs, you may realize that learning what works for your pet may be time consuming. According to holistic veterinarians, many of the scents that work for people also work on dogs. Lavender, which for humans instills relaxation or sleepiness, can calm hyperactivity and hyper-sexuality in dogs. It can also be utilized as a pain killer and as a relief against vomiting, generally as a massage oil or in a diffuser.
Calming Doterra essential oils for dogs
An aggressive dog can be calmed by the use of sandalwood or ylang ylang, by massage or diffuser, with many recommending the diffuser method until the animal shows signs of being less aggressive. A mix of a carrier oil and lavender or rosemary can help dogs in the event of a burn, by massaging the skin around the burn. Lemon oil can help prevent congestion.
Personally, at home and on our travels we use essential oils all the time. We have found that spraying our dogs with Doterra Terrasheld and water mixture will protect them mosquitoes and other insects while at the same time safe and affordable. A diffuser also be used to keep them away from your pet’s favorite areas in the house.
People who use aromatherapy for themselves and know the benefits should try Doterra essential oils for dogs for any problems your pet displays. The use of aromatherapy for dogs is a great way to bring holistic healing into your animal’s life, helping them remain healthy while using products that are eco-friendly and safe for your pets.
