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!
