I’m sure you can tell that my dog doesn’t get any special treatment… HAHA! Yeah, I knew I couldn’t keep a straight face. In May 2016 we added our baby boy, Hayden, to our family. We adopted him through a rescue specializing in American Eskimo Dogs. Unfortunately, there is not much history on him except he was picked up by animal control and never claimed. From day one he had very dry pads, but as the weather started to change they continued to dry out. My husband and I often had scratches and abrasions from his rough paw pads. I wasn’t pleased with options for sale, but I found and tweaked recipes for this magic stick of hydrating goodness!!
- 2 Tablespoons White Beeswax Pellets
- 2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Unrefined Shea Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Sweet Almond Oil
- 10-20 drops Vitamin E Oil
- 5 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
Please see my post here on the products I purchase to make my homemade beauty products.
Combine beeswax pellets, coconut oil, shea butter and sweet almond oil in a double boiler. Heat on low-medium heat, stirring frequently, until completely melted and combined. Add vitamin e oil and lavender essential oil, stir together. Pour into deodorant stick containers and allow to cool completely.
Simply swipe across your puppy’s paws to hydrate and heal chapped paw pads.
