Ear Infection and Inflammation Remedy
Apply Peppermint Essential Oil along the ear line, on the outside of the ear (never internally, because it would burn the tender ear canal), applied over the fur down the tube of the ear from the outside.
Dog Skin Soother
Just like people, dogs often get dry and itchy skin. Soothe minor skin irritations by mixing 2 Tbsp. of almond or coconut oil and 10 drops of Lavender essential oil.
Massage the oil mixture into skin irritations to help reduce itch, kill bacteria and even calm nerves.
Calming Mist For Dogs
- 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 8 oz. of purified water or distilled
Measure essential oil into an empty and clean 8-oz spray mist bottle. Add the water until it is filled. Put on cap and shake well before each use.
Spray around the dog and even on its coat since Lavender is a good essential oil to repel mosquitoes and fleas. This is great for use in a car with a nervous dog or at any time your dog is over-energized.
Doggie Tummy Troubles
Whether it is constipation, dog motion sickness or they just ate something they shouldn’t have….just place one or two drops of Peppermint, Ginger, Tarragon, or Lemongrass Essential Oils on their paw.

First Aid for Dog Burns
Cool the burn with a cold water compress and then apply Lavender Essential Oil as soon as possible.
Keep Your Pets Healthy, Naturally
Just like us, domesticated animals like dogs and cats are affected by the health hazards of modern living. Pollution, poor nutrition, stress and unhealthy lifestyles can lead to a variety of illnesses and conditions that are very similar to those experienced by people.
As our Native Remedies customers grew to know and trust our range of natural remedies for children and adults, they began asking for safe, effective natural solutions especially designed for their pets. As treasured members of their families, our customers wanted their pets to be able to receive the same benefits as they had discovered for themselves with Native Remedies.
In many cases, our natural remedies for humans were used with great effect for the pets in the family and, as time went on, we could no longer ignore the need for remedies especially formulated for pets, with pet-friendly doses and remedies which could be easily administered. Out of this was born PetAlive – a range of herbal and homeopathic remedies to help with a variety of ailments commonly experienced by dogs, cats, horses, and small pets.
