Try These DIY Hemp and CBD Fur and Skin Health Concoctions
DIY hemp and CBD fur and skin treatments really are easy to make. Healthy fur goes along with healthy skin. It’s ideal to focus on both. Vitamins are an essential part of improving your pet’s skin health. Hemp seed oil contains healthy fatty acids and vitamins with antioxidant properties which may help with moisturizing and healthier skin/fur.
Hemp Seed Oil and Oatmeal Bath
Oatmeal is great for your pet’s coat. This whole grain helps pets just as it does humans when it comes to soothing and moisturizing the skin. If baths make your dog nervous, the inclusion of CBD products may support a healthier response to the stress of the situation.
1/2 cup ground rolled oats
2 tablespoons of hemp seed oil
½ cup Epsom salt
A dose of Anti-Separation CBD Tincture
This is ideal for smaller dogs up to about 20 pounds in size. If your dog is larger, consider increasing the volume.
Start by grinding up whole rolled oats in the blender to make a powder. You’ll want the consistency to be similar to flour. Pour this into a container with the Epsom salt and mix.
Start your pet’s bath water. Rub the hemp seed oil into their skin. Mix the proper amount of the oatmeal mixture into the bath water and give it a stir.
*Note: If your dog or cat tends to drink its bath water, consider leaving the Epsom salt out because it could cause diarrhea.
Scoop the oatmeal bath over your pet and massage it into the skin. Rinse your pet thoroughly with clean water.
What’s the Anti-separation CBD tincture for? If your pet experience anxiety or stress during a bath, this might help. Make sure you are using the appropriate dose for your pet’s weight. If you need to give your pet the tincture in food, do so an hour before bath time since the CBD will need time to digest.
This DIY fur wellness CBD recipe does not include CBD in the actual bath water mixture, but it is an option to support a better response to bath time itself when your pet experiences increased anxiety from the situation.
Soothing Skin Balm
Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils are both present in hemp seed oil. These essential oils are ideal for promoting healthy skin and fur. The addition of spearmint oil, peppermint and chamomile may bring added benefit to your pet’s skin and coat.
2 tablespoons hempseed oil
3 drops pure spearmint oil (non-alcohol extracted)
2 drops chamomile essential oil
1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 drops pure peppermint oil (non-alcohol extracted)
This couldn’t be easier to make. Simply add all of the ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine.
If your pet has specific trouble spots, dab just a small amount of the balm to the area and rub it in thoroughly. For overall treatment, consider mixing a few drops in with the shampoo. This can also be massaged into your pet’s skin.
These are just a couple of options for DIY hemp and CBD fur and skin health concoctions that you can make at home for your pet. These recipes are meant to be used topically. Speak with your vet before making any of these recipes in case your pet has a sensitivity to any of these ingredients.
