Patch Testing for Allergic Reactions
While safe for most, of course it is possible to be allergic to natural
oils, nut oils in particular; as well as essential oils, waxes, butters
and plant extracts. Since all natural ingredients can be broken down
into chemical components, allergic reactions are possible in sensitive
animals and/or individuals.
By purchasing these products - you agree to
perform a double patch test. Apply a small amount of the
product on your dog's skin in an area with little to no hair - we recommend
patch testing under the armpit. Observe the area for 24 hours. If redness,
irritation, or inflammation occur on the skin, discontinue use. If after
24 hours there is no reaction observed on the skin - REPEAT the patch
test and check again after 12-24 hours. If there is no allergic
reaction from the double patch test, it is safe to use as directed.
Pregnant women should avoid contact
pregnant women can be incredibly sensitive to a variety of natural herbal
ingredients and preparations, caution should be taken by pregnant women
when using any natural herbal preparation during pregnancy.
essential oils and herbs are contraindicated for pregnant women, particularily
when taken orally, and in their concentrated states. Even though
the concentrations in our formulas are small in dilution, and none of
our formulas are made specifically for humans or for internal use (and
are likely safe topically), we prefer to err on the side of caution
and recommend pregnant women avoid direct contact - when it comes to
natural herbal preparations and pregnant women, there exists much conflicting
information and not enough solid research.
We advise that you consult a healthcare professional for medical
advice before using any natural herbal ingredients while you are pregnant.
