Homemade Paw Balm For Your Dogs DIY

So now that winter is here and the weather can make you very dry, including your pets! Here is a DIY homemade paw balm which will help nourish those dry cracked paws and help prevents their paws from becoming dry and cracked again.

Here is what you need:
1. 1/2 cup of natural beeswax
2. 1/4 cup of coconut oil
3. 1/4 cup olive oil
4. 2 tablespoon of shea butter
5. 10 drops of vitamin E

Here is what you need to do:
1. Fill a pot about 1/3 full of water and set the heat to a medium low setting
2. Set a standard size mason jar inside of the pot of water. this will help create a double boiler effect.
3. Put the beeswax in the mason jar and heat it up while stirring it often until its melted. Usually takes about 10 minutes.
4. Add the coconut oil, olive oil and shea butter. Heat until melted, stirring frequently.
5. Remove form the heat and then add the drops of vitamin E and then stir it up.
6. Now you can pour this mixture into a container you can store it in. Let sit for about an hour or so, so it can harden up. (If you use a wider mouth jar, it makes it alot easier to apply the balm by just sticking your dogs paws into the jar and rubbing it around a bit!)

You can apply as many times a day as needed!

Although my dog, Prince doesn't have really dry paws, Bailey is getting there and she is so much bigger that it feels pretty bad. I am making this for her so she can have nice smooth and moistened paws! What do you guys think about this recipe for the paw balm? Does it sound like something you could try for you dog? Has anyone tried a similar recipe or alternative balm for their dogs' paws? Let me know, if you have used something like this and if it worked well for you and your dog?

As always, thank you for reading guys and I hope you enjoy!!

Are you serious? They are taking pet care to the next level with his one. Not only are they revolutionizing the game but you can make it yourself!? Why do i have the feeling that this would be a hit at the farmers market next year? So many of the live free or die patrons have animals especially dogs and cats. Prince is more of an inside dog if he could use the bathroom on the toilet and stay inside all the time he would. I have never used this on any of my dogs even the dogs i had years ago. I had no idea that this kind of stuff existed for dogs, great idea! We should share this with all of our family and friends to keep our furry family safe and healthy. Thank You for sharing this awesome do it yourself dog balm. Im sure our pets will love it and benefit from it for years to come.

i had no idea of these things either for pets! it is way too amazing how everything that cost so much money in stores can be easily supplemented by making it from thew things you have at home! If i had all the ingredients to make this, i would make it right now for our little furry kids!

You are so right about Prince! We should have just potty trained him! He really does not like to be outside in the snow or rain! HAHA I always bought anything I needed for my dogs from the pet store or online. Most of those products are probably made with lots of chemicals that aren't good for your dog or cat.

We should set something up like this with the farmers market, I wonder how much a hit it would be! LOL Believe it or not, being a really small town, there are alot of families that have dogs here! I cant wait to try this for Prince and Bailey!

I make my own balm for cracked heels by mixing beeswax, camphor and coconut oil. I use this balm for my legs as well as my dog's paw. I knew about this recipe from a natural healing book. When I made the mixture and used on my cracked heels, my heels became smooth in few days. I did not know whether this would work on my dog or not. However, when I applied for the first time, it really worked.
