Don't Use Essential Oils On Your Dog Before Reading This!
We want the best for our pooches, and if you like essential oils for yourself, you might want to share the benefits with your dog.
But before doing this, learn which ones you can use and how to apply them safely.
Benefits of essential oils for dogs
Many holistic vets incorporate essential oils into their practices, so why not use them at home? The benefits include reducing anxiety, helping with flea and tick prevention and skin conditions.
The big no-no's of essential oils
Here is a list of harmful essentials oils to your dog:
- Tea Tree (melaleuca)
- Citrus (orange, lemon, etc.)
- Sweet birch
- Ylang ylang
Never apply essential oils directly to your dog's fur as they are very sensitive to smells and could lick it.
How can I use essential oils on my dog?
The best way of sharing the benefits of essential oils is by washing your dog with a natural shampoo that incorporates them. Using a store-bought shampoo with artificial scents will not have the same benefits as one containing real oils.
Have you tried our natural Byron Paws Dog Shampoos? They contain safe essential oils that are beneficial to your pooch and gorgeous moisturising ingredients.
