13 Essential Oil Blends to use for Dogs and Horses

Here are 13 of my favorite recipes for essential oil blends to use for dogs and horses.

For each recipe, combine 5 drops of each oil for a stock blend. When the recipe calls for a hydrosol, mix 5 drops of each oil into 2 oz of the hydrosol.

If you are interested in getting an energetic frequency blend mixed specifically for your pet or yourself book a holistic care an diet specific session with me to attune to your body mind’s priority – your oil can be shipped worldwide or collected in clinic.

Use the inhalation method with your small stock blend or use in a diffuser.

Precautions: Don’t use any of these essential oil recipes for dogs directly on skin or fur. Never allow your dog to ingest oils in any way.
