Geranium Essential Oil: Geranium, Pure Organic Essential Oil, A Potent Antibacterial and Antifungal Oil
There are 2 ways to apply. I use both.
1. Recipe: 10-25 drops of Rose Geranium Essential Oil (or whichever one or two you choose) mixed with 2 Tablespoons of Sweet Almond Oil. The Almond Oil is used as the “carrier” oil to dilute the essential oil before application. For quality, buy cold pressed
or cold expeller pressed Sweet Almond Oil
. Aromatherapy Carrier Oils, Cold Pressed and Organic
Using a funnel, place oils in a dropper bottle. You can obtain these bottles with dropper's from the company that you purchase the Essential Oils from. Cobalt Blue Glass Bottles with Eye Dropper and Screw Caps
"Used to store and dispense larger amounts of essential oils and blends. Includes glass dropper with rubber top."
Apply in areas down center of their back, just as you would the commercial brand such as Advantix. Dot the mixture lightly on to the tips of dog’s ears and the top of the head, but not
close to eyes. Make sure you test a small spot on your dogs’ skin (for sensitivities) before committing to the whole application. Repeat when aroma disappears or if they swim or get bathed.
Mix 20 drops of your choice of Essential Oils with 2 cups of spring or distilled water in a spray bottle, using a funnel. You can use this along with the mix above. Keep out of sun and away from heat. You can choose one or more essential oils to make up your own individualized potion! It is even a great idea to make up two spray bottles with different Essential Oils in each one and use alternately to keep the bugs away! Spritz on daily if needed. Don’t forget that you can use these on yourself too instead of the “deet”!
Here are other good oils to choose:
- Catnip (not CatMINT)
- Lemon Eucalyptus
- Tea Tree
- Sweet Orange
- Eucalyptus Blue Gum or Eucalyptus globules
- Pine Needle
