Essential Oils For Your Furry Friends!

Posted on August 28, 2014

Welcome to the first oily blogHOP!  We are so excited to have you here.

 Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for little bottles of lemon as you read through the blog posts. At the end tally them up and you can enter a fun giveaway to win the Gentle Babies book by Debra Raybern, a total must have for Mom’s with little ones.

 If you have gone the whole way around the blog and found your way back here, go to to enter the number of lemon bottles you counted on the whole blogHOP.  Entries will be accepted until 9AM (PST) on 8/29 winner will be selected at random on Sept 1st!

I could list a million ways that we have used our Young Living essential oils, but one of my favorites is for Lily.  Our oils are non toxic to the dogs, just like humans so it’s great to know they are safe.  Like most dogs, Lily tends to itch often.  We always try and use soaps that are mild and formulated for itchy skin, but they never seem to work.  I was excited to try out our Young Living recipe on Lily and thrilled when it worked and her itching has almost completely stopped- not to mention she smells much fresher!   This recipe is easy and quick!  (If you don’t have all the oils listed, don’t worry, just use what you have.)  Combine in a jar. Shake well. Lather and rinse well.


Lily has had chronic ear infections for the past 2 years.  As soon as we would stop using the medicine she would get another infection.  I read how many Young Living users were applying Purification Essential Oil along the ear line, on the outside of the ear (never internally, because it would burn the tender ear canal), applied over the fur down the tube of the ear from the outside.  Within 5 days of starting Lily’s ears had no more brown stuff inside and were less inflamed.


Essential oils can be used to calm and focus our dogs.  Peace and Calming has been successful  at promoting relaxation and peace with Lily.

Like people, there are tons of different uses and combinations.  I hope some of these ideas have opened your eyes to the world of possibilities that are out there for essential oils and your pets.
