It's Take Your Dog to Work Day!

To celebrate, we share some of Sal's dog-friendly blending ideas to try at home below, which include a Doggie Bed Spray and a Calm Doggie Mist.

 

General advice

Prior to using aromatherapy for your four-legged-friend, please read the below:

  • Never putting undiluted oils directly onto your dog's skin
  • Avoid essential oils that can be dermal irritants, such as clove bud, cinnamon bark and lemongrass. 

Sal's dog-friendly blending ideas

Every dog is different and they have their own favourite smells. Normally dogs do not like strong, floral scents. However, our Beagle, Lucy, loves the smell of jasmine. I think that says more about her personality: she has to be friends with every human and dog she meets. 

To help deodorise your dog's bedding, here is a general all-purpose spray recipe, which includes pure essential oils of tea tree, peppermint, lavender and eucalyptus. You may spray it liberally onto the bedding. You may also use this as a dog deodorant: lightly spray onto their coat to help eliminate dog odour, avoiding the eyes. 

Doggie Bed Spray

  • 2mL essential oil solubiliser and mix well
  • 45mL warm, purified or filtered water
  • 5 drops tea tree 
  • 5 drops peppermint
  • 5 drops lavender
  • 5 drops eucalyptus

Instructions 

1. Add all the essential oils to the solubiliser and mix well 
2. Add warm, purified or filtered water to the essential oils and solubiliser mix and shake well. 


When your dog needs help settling down, spray a light mist of Calm Doggie Mist over your dog.  

Calm Doggie Mist 

  • 2mL essential oil solubiliser 
  • 45mL warm, purified or filtered water
  • 5 drops geranium
  • 5 drops sweet orange 
  • 5 drops Atlas or Virginian cedarwood

Instructions 

1. Add all the essential oils to the solubiliser and mix well 
2. Add warm, purified or filtered water to the essential oils and solubiliser mix and shake well.
