D.I.Y. All-Natural Paw Protector
During the winter months our dog’s paw pads take a beating! From the snow, ice, salt, sand and so much more. All these elements can cause issues like raw, cracking dry pads for our pups, so lets be preventative this year and make our own Paw Protector Wax!
This recipe will help protect, soothe, moisturize and even has some antibacterial properties! I originally got the idea from Planet Paws on Facebook. I did switch it up a bit to use more products I had around the house and added some lavender essential oils to give it and extra healing boost! I prefer Young Living essential oils because I know they are the best and safest quality.
Here’s the recipe:
3oz of Beeswax
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
6 Tbsp of Avocado Oil
5 Drops of Lavender Essential Oils
First I melted the beeswax, coconut oil, and avocado oil to a liquid state. I then poured it into a metal tin and added the 5 drops of lavender oil. Let it sit to harden. Before your dog goes out side or when they just need some extra moisturizing rub their paw into the wax! Share the love because they make great Christmas gifts for all your dog loving friends!
