Did you know that Young Living (The leader in essential oils) has an Animal Care product line? When I saw this I got so excited. Animals are a huge part of my life and our farm. We take their care and health very seriously and do all that we can to make sure they are all healthy, all the time. These products are for dogs, cats and horses. *And people too.
My animals are like my children. Especially my dogs. We love them and care for them like they are humans. (I know, typical dog lover) A portion of all Animal Scents products proceeds goes toward the Vital Ground Foundation- A non profit organization that protects the habitat of grizzly bears and other wild, free roaming wildlife. So amazing, right?! I just love Young Living!
Okay, so what does Young Living offer, here are a few of my favorites that every animal owner must have:
Animal Scents Ointment- This is a salve that is soothing and protective. Made with Tea Tree Essential Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia), Myrrh and other supporting essential oils like Bergamot (Citrus aurantium bergamia) and Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens). We rub this salve on our dogs paws after a long hike or in winter when the house is dry. For best results, cleanse the area first, then apply this ointment as a protective barrier.
Animal Scents Shampoo- Okay, lets just start by saying that this shampoo is highly concentrated. That means that you can probably get TWO or even THREE bottles of plant based, all natural shampoo for your pets for the price of ONE! This shampoo has 5 powerful essential oils to clean, condition and protect your pets coat. Your pampered pup will be clean and they will smell so wonderful after a bath.
Dental Pet Chews- These pet chews are made from naturally derived ingredients, including spearmint and peppermint essential oils. These pet treats help promote good oral health. They also combat dog breathe!
Animal Scents Cat Treats– Made with Ginger Essential Oil and have a crunchy texture that cats love.
Paragize- A combination of ginger, spearmint, peppermint and other supportive essential oils. (Cumin, fennel, juniper, lemongrass, patchouli, rosemary and tarragon) This oil blend is made specifically with your pets well being in mind. This will be very soothing for horses, cats and dogs with digestive upset. Apply on the abdomen to support healthy digestion. This is a good oil to keep on hand if your pet likes to sneak food off the table. (like my pup)
Repelaroma- This oil blend contains Citronella, Idaho Tansy, Palo Santo and Tea Tree essential oils. This will support healthy skin and your pet will love to be outdoors! Apply a drop on the ears, legs and along the spine. Rub a few drops into your hands and simply ‘pet’ the animal for easy application before outdoor adventures. For on the go: add this oil to a 1oz. Spray bottle and spritz generously to your pets coat or skin.
T-Away- This calming blend will provide a sense of emotional freedom and joyful feelings for your pet. The are several different essential oils that make up this blend are: Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Frankincense, Valerian, Spruce, Lavender, Geranium, Helichrysum, Citrus Hystrix, Rose, Tangerine, Ylang Ylang, Orange, Angelica, Hyssop, Spanish Sage, Coriander, Bergamot, Lemon, Jasmine- Absolute, Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa, Blue Tansy, Ruta and German Chamomile.
There are 3 essential oil blends that work best together as a system. They are:
Animal Scents Puriclean, Animal Scents Infect Away and Animal Scents Mendwell.
Puriclean- Use 1 to 2 drops topically or 8 to 10 drops in a 1 oz. spray bottle with distilled water for a quick skin cleansing spritz.
Infect Away- This is a preventive approach to protect your pets skin. Essential oils in this blend are: Myrrh, Dorado Azul, Palo Santo, Ecuador Oregano, and Ocotea.
Mendwell- Gently massage 1 to 2 drops topically. You can also use a roller Fitment for easy application.
