Podcast 041: Pets’ Paws & Topical EO Safety

This week, a case of histiocytoma on a dog’s paw leads Katja to talk about wound care for animal companions. What to do when a furry friend has a wound? Help it out with herbs! It’s not as hard as you might be thinking.

Ryn received a helpful email this week that made him want to dig deeper into essential oil safety, and will lead to some revisions of his liniment and muscle rub recipes. Special thanks this week to Jennifer Lombard of Earth and Aether Aromatherapy for the heads-up, and for being so generous with her time and resources. Thank you!

Herbs discussed include chamomile, calendula, plantain, witch hazel, rose, catnip, cinnamon, wintergreen, clove, and ginger.
