The Winter can be ruff on your pup's paws. Our pups love playing in the snow, but the city streets are always covered in ice melt. The ice melt can burn your dog's precious, little paws and cause them pain. We created the Paw-ty Balm to protect and soothe their paws. We love this recipe because it's quick, easy and cheaper than buying the balm at the store!
- Beeswax provides a protective barrier
- Coconut Oil is an anti-bacterial and a moisturizer
- Calendula Oil heals and soothes cracked paw pads
- Shea Butter moisturizes the paw pads
- Lavender Oil has calming effects
In a pot on the stove add:
Put the stove on medium heat and mix. Within 5 minutes, it will melt into an oil. Quickly pour the oil into the tins and let it dry. Within ten minutes, the oil will harden into the balm.
When pouring, be careful not to burn yourself! The oil is very hot and the tin you pour it into will be too. We recommend using a funnel and an oven mitt.
Our recipe was enough to fill 6 of the small candy tins, so adjust the recipe for the size of your tins. You can even pour the oil into larger caps that you have around the house.
Before heading outside, put your pup's paws directly into the balm and twist it around so it evenly distributes throughout the entire pad. You will immediately notice how shiny and smooth their paws look and feel!
