DIY: Great Homemade Remedies for Your Dog

DIY: Great Homemade Remedies for Your Dog

Homemade Dog Shampoo

  • 12 ounces water
  • 1 tablespoons of castile soap
  • 2 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
  • 2 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops of rosemary essential oil

Make a cotton scarf or bandana flea collar:

Lay the fabric flat, and place 10 drops of cedar essential oil and 10 drops of lavender essential oil on the fabric. Distribute the essential oil drops evenly over the fabric surface.

Other essential oils that repel fleas (and ticks and mosquitoes) include eucalyptus, citronella, rose, geranium, peppermint, lemongrass.

Fold or roll the fabric, and tie it round your dog’s neck snugly.

Ear Infection and Inflammation Remedy

Apply Peppermint Essential Oil along the ear line, on the outside of the ear (never internally, because it would burn the tender ear canal), applied over the fur down the tube of the ear from the outside.

Dog Skin Soother

Just like people, dogs often get dry and itchy skin. Soothe minor skin irritations by mixing 2 Tbsp. of almond or coconut oil and 10 drops of Lavender essential oil.

Massage the oil mixture into skin irritations to help reduce itch, kill bacteria and even calm nerves.

Calming Mist For Dogs

  • 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 8 oz. of purified water or distilled

Measure essential oil into an empty and clean 8-oz spray mist bottle. Add the water until it is filled. Put on cap and shake well before each use.

Spray around the dog and even on its coat since Lavender is a good essential oil to repel mosquitoes and fleas. This is great for use in a car with a nervous dog or at any time your dog is over-energized.

Doggie Tummy Troubles

Whether it is constipation, dog motion sickness or they just ate something they shouldn’t have….just place one or two drops of Peppermint, Ginger, Tarragon, or Lemongrass Essential Oils on their paw.

May also be rubbed on their stomach.

First Aid for Dog Burns

Cool the burn with a cold water compress and then apply Lavender Essential Oil as soon as possible.
