Essential Oils and Pets

You actually Can Keep fleas and other insects off the household furniture, carpets as well as anywhere the household pets might wander using a spray of cedar. Inside spray bottle, combine 1 drops of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ cedarwood essential oil for each ounce of water and lightly spray anywhere needed. Re-apply a couple of times per month to help keep the fleas away.

Fleas

Remove fleas from your pets by using 5-10 drops of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ Melaleuca (alternifolia) essential oil in your normal pet shampoo. Massage the shampoo completely in to the coat, getting all the way to the skin, then let it set for Five to ten minutes. Rinse out, and see the fleas fall off.

Make certain that fleas don’t come back by, soaking a nylon collar in a 50/50 solution of water and Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ Eucalyptus Blue essential oil. Allow the collar to dry completely before placing it on your pet. You will know it is time to re-soak the collar when you can no longer smell the eucalyptus. Typically, every two weeks or so.

Skin Irritations
Relieve minor skin irritations using a mix of 2 tablespoons of almond oil with 5 drops of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ lavender essential oil. Rub the essential oil mixture directly into skin irritations to reduce itching, kill harmful bacteria as well as relax your pet.

Ticks
Ensure that your pets are safe from ticks well before they go out into the outdoors. Mix a 50/50 solution of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ clove essential oil and water inside a spray bottle, and cover your canine friend with a fine misting. If you are going outside too, this is a great repellent for yourself as well.

Dander

Decrease dander negatively effecting your pets using a a little Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ patchouli essential oil. You can either combine 5 drops of patchouli essential oil with 2 Tablespoons of almond oil, rubbing that on the skin, or put 10-15 drops in your pet’s shampoo every time they get a bath. As opposed to Melaleuca, aka tea tree oil, you don’t have to let the oil set; but, it is essential that you provide your four-legged pal a deep, dander clearing therapeutic massage.

Smell Sweet
Make sure that you do not ever hear your house smells like a wet dog, with the use of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ bergamot essential oil, an all-natural deodorizer, 2 or 3 times per week on your own lovely, though not so lovely smelling household pets. Just as before, combine a 50/50 solution of Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ bergamot essential oil and water, applying a light spray as needed.
