How to make your own dog nose and paw moisturizer
1/2 tbsp shea butter
1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp beeswax pellets
2-3 drops of vitamin E oil
The ingredients in this homemade nose and paw butter are super clean and simple, so even if your dog is licking their nose or paws a little bit afterwards, it’s okay. It feels really good to give the pups something relaxing that I can make right at home.
You can easily find all these items for the homemade dog nose balm at your local beauty supply, health food store or arts & crafts store. I like to support my local small businesses when I can but if you prefer ordering, I’ve linked Amazon links to most of the products.
The shea butter and coconut oil melted right away but the beeswax pellets took a little longer, around 8-10 minutes. I stirred the mixture vigorously with a spoon and it helped melt much faster. It started looking more like a dog nose butter and less like separate ingredients!

I’m a new french bulldog mommy. Puppy is 4 months old, I haven’t experienced him having any dry cracked nose yet, is it typically in the summer?
It’s typical anytime. Mine are both 9 yrs. old. they have it summer winter fall and spring. It’s that Frenchies are prone to hyperkeratosis on their nose.
How do I make it creamier?

Hi Tina- I would try less beeswax and more shea butter
