Our dogs love this soothing, Paw & Skin Balm. Its a great excuse for a cuddle and pamper on the couch, great for dry hands too.
All Natural and Lick-safe, made for mans best friend.
This Paw & Skin Balm is high in vitamin E, which is essential for hydrated, supple skin. It also has properties to reduce inflammation and itching.
The research undertaken led us to the natural wonder of peppermint! Peppermint has a vast amount of qualities which can be beneficial to dogs. In addition, the coconut oil contains essential amino acids which forms a barrier on your dogs skin. Coconut oil is mainly composed of saturated fats, this is amazing at repairing damaged skin.
Relieve Muscle and Joint Pain
Peppermint oil is a very effective natural painkiller and muscle relaxant. It also has cooling, invigorating and antispasmodic (muscle relaxing) properties.
Coat and skin care
Peppermint oil is actually used in many high-quality hair care products (for humans) because it can naturally thicken and nourish damaged hair. It can have the same amazing benefits used on a dogs coat and skin. If your dog is suffering from patchy or thinning coat, it helps to stimulate the skin, promoting coat regrowth and thickening. Plus, peppermint is a powerful antiseptic agent, so it may help to remove germs that may buildup on your dogs skin. It is even used in anti-dandruff shampoos, so can help you pooches flaky skin.
The menthol found in peppermint oil inhibits itching. So, your dog has a spot which they constantly nibble, scratch at or generally annoy, apply this Paw & Skin Balm.
Naturally Repels Bugs
Unlike us humans, a number of little critters hate the smell of peppermint oil, including ants, spiders, cockroaches, mosquitoes, mice and possibly even lice. We use a few drops in each Paw & Skin Balm, therefore even though we get a hint of the peppermint aroma, it wont be too over powering for your dog. GS Dog Supplies however wouldn’t recommend you use this on your dogs nose, as we think it may be too strong for the super human sniffer your pooch has. (See our Sniffer Soother for a nourishing nose balm).
Boost Skin Health
Peppermint oil has calming, softening, toning and anti-inflammatory effects on skin. Use this on your dogs hot spots to promote healing and healthy skin. Peppermint oil also has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties to keep your dogs skin tiptop.
Sunburn Protection and Relief
Peppermint oil can hydrate burnt skin and relieve the pain from sunburns. After a long walk in the sun or a fun day at the beach your dog may have tender hot spots which this can be used on. It can also be used to help prevent sunburn.
In conclusion, Paw & Skin Balm containing peppermint is amazing, your dog will agree! Its cooling, invigorating, expectorant, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, energy boosting and pain-relieving properties.
