Winter Dog Paw Wax
4tbsp Calendula infused olive oil
2tbsp Shea butter
1tsp Carnauba wax
Quarter tsp Vitamin E
30 drops rosemary essential oil (optional)
15 drops lavender essential oil (optional)
Make a double boiler using a glass measuring cup and a saucepan. Fill the saucepan with water so it comes halfway up the side of the measuring cup. Place calendula infused olive oil, shea butter, carnauba wax, and beeswax into the measuring cup. Simmer the saucepan over medium heat until all the ingredients are melted. Remove the measuring cup from the saucepan. Stir in vitamin E, rosemary, and lavender essential oils.
Pour into 3 – 2 oz. tins. Allow to cool completely before capping, to prevent condensation from forming on the inside of the lids.
Label the tins and date. This paw wax will last a year without spoilage. If you notice any signs of spoilage, such as mold or an off-smell, discard and make a fresh batch.
