#2 This is our newest addition. Her name is Belle and we rescued her about 5 months ago when she weighed just 1.1 lbs. She's a malti poo and seriously the sweetest thing ever.
This is a picture of her licking the frankincense off my feet at night.
We were lucky to get her as a puppy so this is her oily life so far:
1. I added 15 drops of digize to a 15 ml bottle and filled it with coconut oil. She is now up to 3 drops a day. You know puppies come with all kinds of poopy issues and unwanted guests.
2. She gets about an ounce of Ningxia Red a day
3. She gets one swipe of lemon in her bowl of water. ( just put a drop in my hand and then stick my finger in it, swipe it in the bowl before I fill it up). She gets iced water outside. Spoiled much?
4. She gets bathed in YL Animal Scents shampoo once a week - she's white!
5. She loves Tsuga, Lavender, Spruce, Rutavala and Frankincense
6. She gets a raindrop from time to time. (Recipe and details to come later).
# 3 Meet Goo. He's my baby boy. Ok, He's 11. When I rescued him, he and his entire litter got pan Leukapenia. He was the only survivor. He was all bones and fur ( you wouldn't know it now!). I would visit him at the vets office and tell him "Don't die today". I would read Harry potter to him every day! He's now getting a bit older and has a bit of arthritis and the pan leuk left him with Feline herpes so his eyes flare up from time to time, especially if he is stressed.
He is is a total nurturer, earth personality and will love on you when he knows you aren't at your best or are sick.
He lost his sister last year, but gained a new one this year.
He's oily too
1. He gets omegagize (fish oil) in his food every day
2. He gets a raindrop every week.
3. He gets Ningxia Red every day
4. He loves Frankincense and Panaway
5. He finds the diffuser alot!
#4 We have to start here.
With what we feed our pets. It's the root of many different things.
I just learned of this new site. Its awesome! Checkout your brand of pet food and see how it shapes up.
Clean Label Project™ uses data and science to reveal the true contents of America’s best-selling consumer products. Products are tested in an accredited analytical chemistry laboratory for 130 harmful environmental and industrial contaminants and toxins. Results are published as Product Ratings.
#5 This is frightening. Many crops are now being sprayed by 'round up'. and the glyphosphate and many other chemicals are ending up in our food and our pets food. Those heavy metals are cause for so many things:
They are known to interfere with normal function and are deadly to cells and tissues when they accumulate in the body. Prevention is KEY!!!
Would you eat food sprayed by round up?
#6 Here are some tips about using oils with your animals. Remember they can smell a dead body under water so their noses are super sensitive.
1. Go slow. When you diffuse, just don't lock them in a room at first with the diffuser. Leave a door open and let them decide.
2. For scardie dogs and cats, introduce them to a calming oil at a time when they are playing and happy so that's what they start to associate the smell with.
3. If you put oils in food or water, keep your eyes on it. You don't want them to stop eating or drinking
4. Some oils need to be diluted before being applied. We will cover that later.
5. Let them pick the oil they like.
#7 Lets review whats on the floor or whats in the air. Our animals are delicate creatures. They spend their time low. Closest to plug ins, walking on floors and licking their paws. Even the hair spray you use find its way to the floors where our animals walk.
The lotion you are wearing, they lick off. I remember being in animal rescue when Pinesol was known to cause deaths in animals because peoples pets were walking on the floors and then cleaning their paws. I was using Pinesol at that time. What cleaner are you using? I will look it up for you.
A chemical free home is just as important for them as it is for us, they are exposed to harmful chemicals and toxins that cause allergies, skin issues, low energy, breathing problems and sometimes worse things.
Home work; Get rid of all the plug ins and switch to Thieves cleaner. I promise you everyone in the house will notice a difference.
#8 I will go through some of the oils in your starter kit and how to use them with your babies. Please know I would not use or recommend any other brand for animals. You have to be confident in the purity.
If you don't have yours yet, ping the person that invited you here today. You are going to want to get hooked up!
You must have seen all the awful posts about animals getting sick using essential oils? Let me tell you a secret. The oils they are using aren't pure. There is no standard on what get's labelled 'pure'. The oils you get from the store might say "pure essential oil" but codex states that the ingredients only need to be 5% pure oil, the rest of the 95 % can be anything (alcohols, fillers, synthetics, perfumes, water)
#9 whats your dog bed smell like?
Remembering that laundry is the #1 household toxin, its worth considering Thieves laundry detergent for your dogs bed.
Please, Please, Avoid fabreze. I beg you.
There are studies that have shown that the chemical sin fabreze negatively impact the livers of our pets.
If its stinks try this:
In an 4 oz pray bottle add 10-15 drops of purification and fill with water.
Spray over pets bedding. Bada Boom!
#10 Here is the Thieves Laundry. This bottle right here does 64 loads and is free from dyes, chemicals. Your pets lungs will be so grateful for the switch, so will your lungs
#11 At the recent animals conference, many vets talked about all their stories and there were only a few oils mentioned almost EVERY SINGLE TIME and this was one. Adding a drop to your dogs food may promote overall wellness.
When Fuzz was with us, he would get one drop of Copiaba vitality in his food as he got older. Just one drop, once a day.
He was a small dog that had that 'hacking' issue after he ate. It went away after we added copiaba.
#12 Guess what the second oil mentioned was in that same conference ??
Both Magoo and Belle will find me and lick off any frankincense I put on my skin! Its quite rude! I put it on the back of my hands and face at night and sometimes on the bottom of my feet. Seriously, these too will steal it!!
If your dogs or cats need some skin love, add a drop or 2 to a tablespoon of coconut oil and apply to their skin or pads. It's ok if they lick it off.
It has the same benefit for them as it does for us. Calm, Skin lover, Grounding, Beam me down Scotty.
#13 Matilda (RIP sweet girl) LOVED lavender. Whenever I diffused it she would find herself as close to the diffuser ass she could possible get. Its was her jam.
Its the first one I would try for a storm if your dog gets scared. Its also great for skin and it's gentle enough you could apply neat if you needed to.
Lavender is the #1 emotional oil. For us and for our pets
TIP: If you are introducing your pet to oils for the first time, please don't wait until a storm. Use an oil (like lavender) when they are happy. Like when you are loving on them, playing with them or snuggling. They will then associate the oil with that moment too.
#14 While we are on the subject if skin, I would not be without this. It's the most amazing magic ointment ever made.
If you have been around me for a while, you have probably got a little tub of 'skin balm'. That skin balm is made with shea butter, animal scents ointment and lavender (and maybe some other oils) It's is so amazing for your animals AND you. (I use it for heels, cuticles, knees).
Just yesterday I gave some to a friend of mine whose dog had been to the groomers and has been shaved too close! (Poor baby). This ointment cleared it right up!
Our Vet tells stories about how she makes friends with dogs and peppermint. Horses LOVE peppermint.
-Tip: If your dog doesn't like car rides because of tummy issues. Add a drop to a cotton ball and put the cotton ball in the air vent.
#16. Let's recap
1.Diffusing is awesome for your pets. Just leave them with a way out of they don't like it.
2. Topical application works great, just dilute with a carrier oil
3. Internal. Keep your eyes open if you are putting it in food or water to make sure they continue to eat and drink.
#19 When I use Panaway on my knees or ankles, Magoo will go nuts!! He's so funny. He uses his teeth to take up all the scent he can. The weird thing is he's been doing this for years and just a few months ago we discovered he has arthritis. Smart kitty going for the panaway. So now he has his old man blend which includes valor, panaway and copiaba that we apply to his hips.
If your dog is super active and needs some muscular support, pan away is a great option. Again, depending on the size of your baby, dilute it.
#20. Purification is a hit. If you dog gets skunked, you will need this on hand.
1. Add a drop or 2 to a collar or bandanna before going outside to avoid some pesky biters. *
2 Make your own pet bed spray to keep their beds fresh and clean,
3. add it to some Thieves cleaner to spray fake grass so it doesn't stink.
* Prevention is always better than a cure. Don't WAIT until your babies get friends.
#21 There's nothing worse than having a sick animal. What's worse, their trip to the vet? The worry ? trying to get them to take meds?
Avoid it all with Thieves. I don't know where we would be without this particular oil. It's awesome in the diffuser, and remember they get the benefits too!
Oil Ninjias: What's your favorite Thieves use?
#22 If you want to take the guess work out, there is a whole animal line geared specifically for your pets. They are pre diluted and you don't have to worry.
I heard a story just last week where a lady was having a problem with her chickens because a fox got into the pen, Luckily no chickens were harmed, but they were really freaked out (Who wouldn't be). She set up the diffuser with T away in it (Trauma Away) and when she came back, all the chickens were swarmed around the diffuser. T-Away is an oil blend containing 27 oils, WOW!
PuriClean is a 12 blend combination featuring Cistus, Citronella, Lavendin, Lavender, Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Mountain Savory, Myrtle, Palo Santo, Patchouli, and Rosemary. This combination by the name you can tells helps to cleanse and purify such as in minor skin irritations. This can be applied on location with roller ball on top of oil bottle of oil added to spray bottle with water for spritzing application.
InfectAway is a combination of Myrrh, Patchouli, Dorado Azul, and Palo Santo support skin and support the immune system of your animal. Add 2-4 drops to the animal’s coat or 8-10 drops to spray bottle.
Mendwell is a 6 combo of essential oils including Geranium, Lavender, Hyssop, Myrrh, Frankincense and the exotic Hinoki essential oils. For support of the immune system and is also skin supporting. Apply 1-2 drops on location.
RepelAroma oil blend contains Citronella, Idaho Tansy, Palo Santo, and Tea tree oil. This one is invigorating and your pets will enjoy being outdoors when wearing. Can be applied to your hands and then to the animal by stroking their back. This is a great one to apply via a spray bottle as well for better coverage. If your animals friend friends hitching a ride, you need this one.
What pet would you love to have?
#23 Lets talk Rain Drop. Ah MAZ ING, (Even if you do smell like a pizza).
The raindrop-technique was developed by Gary Young, ND an essential oils expert and founder of Young Living Essential Oils.
Cats can expect to have many of the fantastic benefits of raindrop as humans, horses and dogs. Here I have listed some of the conditions that holistic vets and animal practitioners are using KRDT (and essential oils) for:
Support emotional and mental wellbeing of the animal;
Re-harmonize the body;
Support healthy immune system*; and
All my animals get and have had a rain drop. In the next post we will take applications and dilutions. It helps with everything, supports their immune system, eases muscles, supports tummies. everything. When I know something isn't right with one of ours, I lean towards the rain drop.
# 24 Warning: Raindrop technique for animals should not be done with any oils other than Young Living Oils which are therapeutic grade. I cannot guarantee your pets safety using other oils; and I have not worked with any other oils for this technique. I am not trying to scare you—that is just a fact. I also may mention that it is highly recommended that all animals receiving this technique take Ningxia Red Antioxidant drink to help the liver metabolize the phenols in these oils.
Magoo and Belle gets their daily Ningxia red.
Of course, many animals won't sit there while you do a 45 minute therapy on them so coming up I will share the cheat sheet.
# 25 Rain drop in a bottle: (this is the recipe I use for Goo and Belle) Take four drops of oregano, thyme, basil, wintergreen, marjoram, cypress and peppermint and place in a 30 ml or one ounce bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with V-6 vegetable oil blend or base oil and gently mix by rocking the bottle back and forth. Apply six drops to the spine from the base of the sacrum to the shoulders and feather stroke the oil into the back three times. Do this one to three times during this session.
You can add additional oils based on what you think you may need for physical or emotional well bing. Add a max of 3.
Copiaba, Digize, Heli, Myrrh, Black Spruce
We add copiaba and Digize to ours. Its not like it will hurt if they dont need it for a particular rain drop. If you want to add emotional oils, add the one they chose. (remember that video?)
#26 How often?
For your babes that NEED it, do a rain drop every day for 3 days. Keep your eyes on them and make sure they have plenty of water to drink. The rain drop will find toxins to exit and they have to get flushed out. Just keep fresh water out and make sure they are drinking it.
After 3 days go once every other day for a week.
Then go to once a week.
Magoo is on a once a week routine
Belle is on a as needed basis.
#27 What supplements can you give to your dogs and cats?I
If there is only one, go for Ningxia red and stay consistent. Animals need antioxidants too and can benefit from whole food nutrients at a cellular level.
Belle gets Ningxia red over her food at lunch time every single day (about half a capful). I want her to get the goodness of antioxidants too! Note!! Don't give it to a puppy with supper at 8pm unless you want to stay up late!
Magoo had Pan Leuk as a kitten and has had Feline Herpes since and his yes have a goopy discharge. He's also been having some impacted anal glands in the past and the base of his tail felt weak. (like when you pet a cat and their tail does vertical) He's on a raw diet (made me yours truly) BUT I have been giving him NXR every day. His tail is better and his eyes are clear!! I have to give it to him in a syringe as he's not a fan of it in his food. You could put it on their feet to lick off if that works for you, but it won't work if you have white carpet,
Both Belle and Goo get omegagize every day (I mix it in with their food) and when I feel like Belle is having a growth spurt, I will add the powder of half a sulfurzyme in her food once a day.
