DIY Anti-Itch Spray for Humans AND Dogs

20 Sep

Reblogged from Dogtalk: “I used it on my OWN mosquito bites and minor skin abrasions last summer, and it worked better than any ready-made remedy I’ve ever purchased! It’s inexpensive, all natural, and easy to mix up. If you have a dog with itching problems caused by allergies, insect bites, healing wounds, sunburn, or hotspots, give it a try.”

You will need:
*witch hazel
*aloe vera gel
*tea tree oil
*lavendar (optional) 
*and a 4-ounce spritzer bottle.

You can get all these ingredients at any drugstore.

Fill the spritzer bottle about half and half with the witch hazel and aloe vera gel. Add about 15 drops of tea tree oil. If you want to make it smell even better, add a few drops of lavendar. Shake it up. It will have the consistency of a thin lotion. Apply the lotion daily or as needed, and gently massage into the affected areas

    Finally, scientists have developed advanced treatments that won’t allow itchy skin to keep you from making the most of the season. According to Dr. Michael Southall, a leading scientist at Johnson & Johnson’s Skin Research Center, there are new ways to help ensure against extreme itch. Until now, over-the-counter remedies have included topical hydrocortisone treatments that provided only temporary relief. A new breakthrough technology has revamped the anti-itch category, allowing hydrocortisone to stay on skin for a longer period of time. These new products not only soothe and heal but can also last up to 12 hours, making for a successful day at work or play and a peaceful night’s rest.”

    I recently read that tea tree oil is dangerous to use on pets. Can I make this without tea tree oil & if so would it be as effective? It sounds like a good recipe. Thank you

      I haven’t heard about the tea tree oil issue with pets… I’d think to be 100% sure – you should talk to your vet. Keep in mind that different dog breeds have different skin types too!
