Paw Balm Recipe

25Jan10

As we discussed before winter can be especially harsh on your dog’s paws. I wanted to share with you a recipe for all natural paw balm, along with a great foot soak for your pet prior to applying the balm (this also works great for people too!).

Natural Paw Balm
1 part beeswax
1 part olive oil or avocado oil
1 pinch borax
Purchase cosmetic grade beeswax and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for melting (this is often sold at craft stores for making homemade lip balm). Once the wax is melted, slowly add the olive oil or other edible oil, mix this until it is of a whipped consistency and add the pinch of borax. Remember that the dog will lick its feet after the balm is applied, so all of the ingredients must be edible and of current non-spoilage date. Store the balm in an airtight container to avoid spoilage or discoloration. Just a few smudges of this on each pad will go a long way. Rub it is well, and be sure not to make a mess of the hair around the pads.

Soak your pet’s paws in Epsom salt with purified water (1-2 tbs pet gallon of water) for 5-10 minutes before applying the paw balm for best results.

Thanks to Chris Sertzel for this great recipe!
