Benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil for Dogs
Hi, Fur Pawrents!
Today, we’ll review some key benefits of peppermint essential oil. I’m sure you’ve all heard of it, but do you know how beneficial it can be for your fur baby? Let’s review the following benefits:
• Supports a healthy respiratory system
• Mosquito repellent
• Soothes itchy skin
Now, you’re probably wondering how your fur baby can reap those benefits. If your fur baby has seasonal allergies, try diffusing a couple drops of peppermint essential oil. Peppermint is an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, therefore having it diffused around them can greatly benefit the health of their respiratory system. It also has properties that repel mosquitoes. If you live in an environment that has mosquitoes, try diluting a drop of peppermint essential oil with your carrier oil of choice, and rub your fur baby down prior to going outside. You can also rub them down with peppermint essential oil diluted in your choice of a carrier oil if they have itchy skin; for example, if they have been bitten by a bug. We love the power of peppermint essential oil and use it in our All Natural Itch Relief Shampoo!
