In our house, everyone, and I mean everyone (furbabies included!) uses essential oils. My pup, Pierce, well, he’s a stinky dog. It really is not his fault – within hours of a bath, he just has an outdoor aroma to him that is not very pleasant, so I set to work making the Perfect Pooch Perfume so he could smell nice between his baths. I was fortunate enough to receive an assortment of therapeutic grade essential oils from Piping Rock, a leader in affordably priced health supplements and products, in exchange for my opinion.
What did I think of the Piping Rock essential oils?
I have to say, I love the prices that Piping Rock offers on essential oils, but of course, that naturally also will make one suspicious. Piping Rock proudly shares that they use honest extraction methods to obtain their essential oils and that these therapeutic grade oils are 100% plant-derived. Knowing this made me breathe a sigh of relief as I know that some discount companies have also taken a discount route on their products leaving consumers at risk!
I received Frankincense, Myrrh, Lemon, Sandalwood and Vanilla essential oils – along with a fantastic amber glass bottle to mix my essential oils in. In coming posts, I will share some amazing uses for the Frankincense, Myrrh, and Lemon essential oils as they are each fantastic and multipurpose, but for this review, I found myself sidetracked with an incredible use for the Sandalwood and Vanilla oils. As I shared earlier, my pup is a stinky one and I wanted to make him a safe pooch perfume that would help him smell nice between bath times. So I decided to go with Sandalwood and Vanilla as both of these oils are safe for use with dogs and make a wonderful smell when combined. I simply mixed 8-10 drops of the Sandalwood oil and 5-7 drops of the Vanilla oil in with about 8-ounces of filtered water. I put it into the glass amber bottle (glass for essential oils is best to prevent breakdown and leeching of the plastic and the amber color protects the oils from breakdown from the sun’s rays).
I let Pierce in from a romp in the yard and he was smelling particularly ripe – so I gave him a quick spritz down with my new Perfect Pooch Perfume (avoiding his face, of course!) and was pleased with how nice he smelled! Even a few days later he still had a pleasant smell going that everyone in the family appreciated! Added bonus, both of these oils can have a calming effect and for our energetic pup, it certainly did. It also seemed to help him during a recent thunderstorm – so not only is my dog smelling better, but his anxiety has been lessened, too!
