Please note:  While occasional nausea and vomiting isn’t usually a concern, we do suggest a consultation with your veterinarian for repeated or chronic vomiting, and before the use of essential oils with pre-existing conditions.

Essential oils have been used successfully as a natural treatment for people and pets for many years. This easy essential oil recipe for the treatment of vomiting and nausea includes safe, proven oils on a base of sweet almond oil.  It is intended for use as a natural treatment for occasional nausea, such as car sickness in dogs.  It may also come in handy for rescued dogs with nervous stomachs.

It is imperative that we use only high quality, therapeutic-grade essential oils on our dogs. We rely on Starwest Botanicals (US) to supply the majority of our essential oils.

Easy Essential Oil Recipe for Dog Nausea and Vomiting

4 TBSP  Sweet Almond Oil (Base)
4 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Mentha piperita)
3 drops Ginger Essential Oil (Zingiber officinale)

Blend well and shake before using.

Place a couple of drops on a cotton pad for aromatherapy.  Hold it near your dog for a minute or place close to his crate (safely out of reach). Expert Kristen Leigh Bell, author of Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals: A Comprehensive Guide to the Use of Essential Oils & Hydrosols with Animals, suggests wedging a scented tissue into the car vent for motion sickness.  You could also add a drop of lavender oil for its calming effects.

Note: Essential oils should be stored in dark glass jars and be kept out of reach of pets and children.
