Organic Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia)
Lavender is the common name for Lavendula, which is a series of 39 different flowering plants that belong to the mint family. It is native to Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, throughout Southern Europe, and across portions of Northern and Eastern Africa, essentially along the Mediterranean territories. It can offer many benefits for those looking for a dry paw cure for their dog.
Dry skin for any dog can be a serious problem, whether it’s the snout, paws, or some other part of the body. Dogs don’t have the ability to produce fatty acids themselves, so they need to get them through other means, usually diet. However, if their diet does not contain enough fatty acids, or the right kinds, it can lead to an increased risk of dry skin for the dog and other problems, including cracked and chapped paws, snout, and even painful symptoms of these.
Why Use Lavender for Dogs
Lavender essential oil has many wonderful healing properties. At its most basic, it acts as an analgesic, can help healing processes, and can also help to reduce inflammation. For anyone who has a dog that is dealing with dry paws, they understand how uncomfortable and even painful it can be them.
Lavender offers an all natural solution to some of the potential germs and bacteria that can form around cuts and minor abrasions that result from dry paws. It is also highly effective at soothing some of the pain and discomfort the dog may feel as a result of their dried paws.
Essential Properties of Lavender
Lavender consists of many constituents and is derived through a process of distilling the flower spikes of certain, specific Lavendula plants. There are two distinguishable types of lavender oil that can be produced from this distillation process: lavender flower oil and lavender spike oil. Each has a slightly different density, but they also possess naturally occurring phytochemicals, including linalool and lynalyl acetate.
The therapeutic properties of lavender oil are antiseptic, analgesic, anti-convulsant, anti-depressant, anti-rheumatic, anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, bactericide, carminative, cholagogue, cicatrisant, cordial, cytophylactic, decongestant, deodorant, diuretic, emmenagogue, hypotensive, nervine, rubefacient, sedative, sudorific and vulnerary.
Lavender also contains a number of monoterpenols, terpene esters, monterpenes, and terpenoid oxides. Some of these are:
- (Terpene esters)
- Linalyl acetate
- Geranyl acetate
- Octene-3-yl acetate
- (Terpenoid oxides)
Lavender can be effective at providing soothing and healing to the skin, which is important for any dog with dry paws. Bringing soothing comfort is essential for any dog owner whose beloved pet is dealing with dry skin, either on their nose or paws.
When searching for a dry paw cure of any kind, it’s best to rely on all natural ingredients and lavender is one of them. Lavender is an essential oil, too, which means it will not dissolve in water. Instead, it will help to protect cracked and inflamed skin and help improve the overall healing process.
Organic Cajeput Essential Oil
The cajeput oil is an oil considered to be highly volatile that is derive from the myrtaceous tree. This type of tree is indigenous to South Asia and some of the hottest places throughout Australia. The word itself, cajeput, is Indonesian and means ‘white wood.’ For dogs that have suffered damaged paws and are painful, getting relief and healing as soon as possible is essential.
A dog’s paws are extremely important to its health and well-being. When a dog has damaged paws due to drying or cracking, they may have a tendency to remain sedentary rather than being active.
Why Use Cajeput for Dogs
Cajeput oil has been used in a variety of applications through the years and is reported to have similar uses as clove oil, though its properties are much different.
One of the common factors for dogs that suffer painful paws due to damage, either from running too often on concrete or pavement, for example, or poor diet and nutrition is that they aren’t producing the right fatty acids that are an important component to health skin.
The snout and paws for a dog are some of the most sensitive to drying conditions and relying on supplements or ingredients like organic cajeput oil helps to restore that moisture to vital parts of the body.
For dogs that may be dealing with damaged paws, it can be a painful experience for them, which is why cajeput oil is an important ingredient in any paw soother. It can act as an antiseptic to some degree, helping to fight against fungal infections, and it can also be used to numb some degree of pain.
Essential Properties of Organic Cajeput Oil
Cajeput is commonly used as a mild pain reliever, such as by dentists who advise patients to rely on it for gum pain. It is also commonly used to treat headaches, toothaches, and as a tonic. It can also be applied to the skin to fight fungal infections and has been used to treat joint pain when applied with other ingredients.
Cajeput oil is not commonly used alone but rather in concert with other ingredients to provide comfort and healing.
Cineole is the active chemical component found in cajeput oil and when applied to skin, it creates surface warmth and mild irritation, which helps to relieve pain that resides below the surface of the skin.
History of Cajeput Oil
It is unclear how long cajeput oil has been used for, but it is only produced on the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi. The oil is extracted from leaves that are collected on a hot day. It is then macerated in water, distilled, and fermented overnight.
It has a strong, pungent odor but can be effective as a mild pain reliever. For anyone whose dog is suffering from painful paws due to damage, any paw soother than contains cajeput will be helping to bring comfort and healing.
