Essential oils are safe if used correctly and can be beneficial when your pet is overly hyper or has an annoying flea and tick problem. Aromatic oils are also beneficial for adding to pet care products like shampoos, conditioners, body washes and sprays. We’ve put together a few of our favorite recipes that you can create on your own and for different purposes.

  • Spray bottle
  • 300mL of purified water
  • 5 drops of Lavender essential oil
  • 3 drops of Frankincense essential oil

You can’t go wrong with Lavender for pets. Its aroma is calming for the active and excited pet. Adding a few drops of Frankincense works to quiet the mind. Shake well before use.

Rosemary is an effective flea repellent, while Sweet Marjoram heals irritated skin and kills bad bacteria and fungal growth. Beyond Lavender’s exceptional aromatherapeutic properties, it is also an excellent antiseptic. Eucalyptus stimulates relaxation and purifies skin.

Natural Skin and Fur Conditioner

It is normal for pets to experience itchy skin, but this DIY essential oil recipe can help alleviate symptoms of dry, itchy skin. All you need to create this blend is:

Way of Will’s Hair Therapy carrier oil is rich in Vitamin E to promote healthy fur and hair growth. Lavender cleans the fur, while leaving a lovely floral scent.
