If you love your dog but hate the bad breath, this DIY Toothpaste for Dogs is for you! I have to admit, I’m not a huge dog lover. The main reason being their bad breath and doggie odor. But what if there was a solution for that? What if there was an oil for that? Well, guess what?! There is!!
Meet Huntley! Huntley is my boyfriends dog! I am learning to love Huntley and taking him on walks (if you know me well you know this is a big deal), but he is needing some serious help in the doggie breath area. Don’t worry though, I made this doggie toothpaste for him and he loves it! It’s a win-win for us both and perfectly safe to use on him! For more about using Essential Oils on Animals, click here.
DIY Toothpaste for Dogs
Here’s What You Need:
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda

Here are some other tips to remember when using essential oils on animals from Young Living:
1. Most animals are more sensitive than humans to essential oils.
If you want to start using essential oils on your animals be sure to dilute them heavily and use in moderation. Every animal is different so be aware how each animal responds to the different oils. Do not get essential oils in your animals eyes. Avoid high-phenol oils such as Oregano and Thyme. Use special caution when using essential oils with cats – especially citrus oils.
2. Your animals size affects the amount of oil you should use.
3. Apply oils to yourself or diffuse to introduce animals to essential oils and help them get comfortable.
4. Once animals are used to essential oils, animals can respond well to topical application.
Paws are a great place to apply essential oils.
