Product Description

Aroma Paws Canine Aromatherapy Massage Oils provide a great way to bond with your dog, while you are nurturing their skin & coat with the soothing ingredients.  This formula is vegan, cruelty-free and contains NO synthetic ingredients.

Lavender:  Helps Calm & Relax, Helps with Hyperactivity, Helps with Anxiety, Eases Nerves.

Directions:  Use the bottle dropper to apply a small amount of oil into your hands, & begin to massage into dog's skin & coat as desired.  Only use so much as lightly coats & conditions the coat. We suggest focusing on the head and neck area so that your dog will smell the essential oils for hours after the massage.  Avoid massaging near open wounds or near the site of recent surgery.  You can massage near these areas to promote circulation and encourage healing.  Safe for your dog to lick.  Not safe for cats.  For external use only.

Use of proper dog massage techniques can comfort & relax, help aid digestion and improve circulation.  After massage, you can wrap your dog in a warm towel for further relaxation and absorption of ingredients.

Groomer & Home Use Tip:  It's best to use the massage oils on a dry coat, massage, let set for 15 minutes in a warm towel, then bathe and groom as usual.  The oils will still have been absorbed into the skin, and you can always add a little bit to their skin & coat after grooming if you can't smell the essential oils.  If the dog just has the massage without grooming, just use the oils lightly, enough to absorb but not leave a greasy mess.  If used lightly, their coat should be shiny and conditioned, not oily.  If you've used too much you can also rub the dog down with a towel to absorb any excess.

Ingredients:  Grapeseed Oil, Pure Olive Oil, Apricot & Sweet Almond Oils, Pure Essential Oils.

Size:  2 fl. oz.

Canine Massage:  Here are some “at home” canine massage techniques that you can use to bond, nurture or heal your dog.  Always be mindful of your dog's comfort level, as this should never be painful or cause your dog stress.  Remember to always use gentle pressure.

1. Place your dog on a stable but soft surface—such as a rug on the floor, or on a bed.

2. Stand at your dog's head and place your hands, palms down, behind its ears.  Using firm pressure, (don't press too hard, this should not cause pain or discomfort), rub your hands down the dog's back. Start with several long, slow strokes from head to tail and then slightly increase the pressure. Continue this process for several minutes.

3. Hold the tip of each ear between your thumb and fingers and rub in a circular motion using light pressure.  Lightly grasp at the base of the ears with the entire ear in your hand and working your hands towards the tips of the ears, with a slightly firm grasp to massage all of the muscles in your dog’s ears. Rub each ear from tip to base and back again.

4. Place your fingertips at the base of the dog's neck and use circular strokes to apply pressure to the neck and shoulder area.  Move down the dog's back, keeping your fingers on either side of the spine until you reach the hip area.  To massage around the spine, walk thumbs down both sides of spine from base of head down to the tail.

5. Open your hands and rub firmly down each of the back legs, starting from the hip joint and working down.  If the dog will allow you to do so, lightly squeeze each of its back feet.  Repeat this entire process for the front legs.  To massage the front legs, apply light pressure while turning your hands around the dog’s legs.  To massage the hind legs, place both hands around the largest part of the leg and gently squeeze, working your way down to the paws.  If your dog will allow you to touch their paws, you will lightly open their paw between the pad and toes and gently rub; you can stretch their toes apart lightly and rub those.  Finish by holding the entire paw in your hand with a gentle squeeze.

6. Massage the chest area by rubbing with an open flat hand in a clockwise motion

Tips: 

Never do deep-tissue massage, always nice light stokes, starting at your dog's head, long and slow, not just petting your pet, but long strokes from head to tail, moving along the contour of your dog’s body. 

When massaging the sides of your dog, long steady gentle stokes help to stimulate the organs and increase circulation; which is especially beneficial in older dogs

The first time you massage your dog they may be anxious and not know how to relax.

Try as many of the techniques as your dog will allow.

Over time the massage process will be easier, once your pup notices how great this feels!

Made in the USA.
