Aromatherapy for Boston Terriers

Posted by

Aromatherapy can be used in Boston Terriers to:

To slow or stop diarrhea
Ease pain from cancer
To reduce nervousness and anxiety
To help alleviate the pain and immobility of arthritis
Calm an aggressive dog
Help reduce hyperactivity
To relieve itching of dry skin
To reduce nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness

Aromatherapy uses two different oils.  A carrier or base oil is mixed with several drops of an essential oil.  Good carrier oils are all pure vegetable oils, olive oil, safflower oil, grapeseed oil, and avocado oils.  Good essential oils are sandlewood, eucalyptus, juniper, birch, lemon, chamomile, and bergamot.  Be sure all essential oils are properly diluted.  Essential oils should never be used without dilution.

There are two different methods for using aromatherapy in Boston Terriers.

The first is by diffusion.  Mixing an essential oil with a carrier oil and allowing the scent to diffuse the entire the house.  Leave the dog in a room with the diffuser for 30 minutes.

The second is by massage.  This involves mixing the essential oil with the carrier oil and massaging it into the dog’s skin.  Massage an area that is as hair-free as possible.  Good areas are armpits, groin, stomach, or inner thigh.

Here is one recipe for a calming oil for Boston Terriers.
