When it comes to caring for your pet, most of us want only the best for them. After all, they are family members and they need to be treated with loving care like the rest of us. Many people who have been using doTERRA’s essential oils know that many of our oils can be used safely and with beneficial results when targeting our furry friends but some people don’t know about this yet. Today I’m going to share a few pet recipes for useful things that I think everyone will fall in love with!
doTERRA and Your Pet
One of the most popular recipes is geared toward your cat and their irritating way of scratching any surface except the pricey scratch post that you invested in.
Cat Scratch Deterrent
- 10 drops doTERRA Eucalyptus Oil
- 10 drops doTERRA Lemon Oil
- 1 Cup Water
Fill a small glass spray bottle with the essential oils. Top off with the water and shake well before each use. Spray on the areas that the cat is not allowed on or shouldn’t be scratching up. This should help steer your kitty to its scratch post quickly!
- 1 LG Banana
- 3 Tablespoons Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 LG Egg
- 2 Cups Garbanzo Bean Flour
- 1/4 C Flax Seed
- 3 – 5 Drops DigestZen, Frankincense, or Cassia Oil
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Combine the banana, peanut butter and egg in a bowl. In another bowl, combine flour and flax seed. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together with the essential oil of choice. Roll the dough on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thick. Using a cookie cutter of choice cut out the treat shapes. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool and store up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Tablespoon Castile Soap
- 1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E
- 3 Drops Peppermint Oil
- 2 Drops Roman Chamomile Oil
- 2 Drops Purify or Abode Oils
- 1 Drop Cedarwood Oil
Place all ingredients in a glass jar and mix well. Apply a quarter-sized amount to your damp pet and scrub away. Rinse with water until no soap residue is left. The shampoo will be a bit watery but will leave your pet clean and smelling great for days!
