For Your Dog Chamomile Tea:
Chamomile has a multiple use for the health benefits, but only straight pure not mixed with any other herb, it can improve digestion, and calm a dog during car rides and will help your dog to sleep better.
I add this tea to Gandalf’s food bowl after its cooled with his food when he has a sensitive tummy It helps him to digest his food and get the nutrients he needs . I put about a 1/4 cup of tea in his food, and for my pups that can get into stuff they get a bit less but it so helps them calm down for the night rest ,they won’t have so much animated dreams that bark in the night and shadow running on their backs ..
When I was a Little girl My grandmother after washing her face, would rise her face in cooled chamomile and let it dry her face was so soft, and she would rinse my hair after washing to keep the scalp healthy and hair shiny, we also used it to wash and clean cuts or sores. Does your dog have runny eyes? You can use the tea as an eye wash to wash the bacteria away while it also soothes the dogs eyes. Now with winter or summer that with air conditioning and indoor heating our dogs experience dry eyes or are subjected to dust or ash from wood stove, and fireplaces which can irritates their eyes.
In a saucepan steep a bag of I love this brand Celestial Seasonings , let it cool down to room temperature and add a pinch of sea salt and dissolve by stirring with a spoon. If using the loose herbs strain away the leaves after it cools down.
Use a cotton pad it’s easier to use than a cotton ball it will leave fuzz in the eye now we’re trying to comfort the eye not irritate it more. Soak the cotton with the tea mixture and gently apply on your dog’s eyelids for a few seconds, squeeze the cotton a little bit.
Use a new cotton pad so no transfer from eye to the other eye and repeat 2 times a day for a few days.
Natural herbal teas have many applications for your dog and they are inexpensive, easy to prepare and readily available in your health food store. While herbal teas are totally safe for you dog or cat, do not give regular black or orange pekoe commercial teas are not recommended.
Now This evening have a cup of Chamomile tea with your dog and Pleasant Dreams
