The 3 Sprays Every Dog Owner Needs in Their Cabinet

Calling all animal lovers! We get it, your fur baby is part of the family! And you want to give them the best love and attention you possibly can. That includes when you use essential oils. We have three sprays that are essential for any dog owner. Keep reading to find out what they are and why you need them.

The 3 Sprays Every Dog Owner Needs in Their Cabinet

Hydrosol Deodorizer

Now, this might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of your fur babies, but hydrosols really are the hidden gems of the essential oil world! Hydrosols are gentler than essential oils and are safe to use on skin and your doggos. In addition to benefiting from the therapeutic properties of certain essential oils, they can also be incredibly useful as a deodorizer. So if your pup’s bed, crate or favorite toy has that stubborn “dog smell”, whip up this DIY and spray directly on the linens for a deodorizing effect. It’s even safe enough to spray directly on your pet!

What you’ll need:

2 ounces Rose Hydrosol
2 ounces Lavender Hydrosol
1 tsp baking soda

Add these products to your cart

What you’ll do:

Add ingredients to an empty 4 ounce bottle. Shake well. Spray directly on your pup or their bedding.

Show Ready All Purpose Cleaner

For those of you that use essential oils to clean, you know just how amazing it is! However, not all essential oils are safe to use around our dogs. We’ve created an All Purpose Cleaner that you can use with confidence around your precious pups. It uses the new Show Ready blend, which was created to help support the immune system and overall health of your dog in order to protect them from illnesses. That makes it an ideal choice for this cleaning DIY.

What you’ll need:

5 oz Water
3 oz White Vinegar
1 tsp Dish Soap
12 drops Show Ready
8 oz spray bottle

What you’ll do:

Add essential oils to dish soap and mix well. Combine all ingredients in the bottle and shake well to mix. Spray surfaces and wipe off to clean. This product should be stored in the fridge and used within a week or add a preservative.

Confident K9 Linen Spray

This spray uses one of our brand new Pup & Pony blends! Confident K9 was specifically created to help with dogs who struggle with being alone. It promotes relaxation, supports confidence, and soothes worry so they can relax when their favorite person is away. Before using this linen spray, make sure you’ve properly introduced your pup to essential oils and they have a positive association with these blends. Then you know you can safely use this spray while you are away. Also, the Everclear acts as an emulsifier in this recipe. It evaporates quickly, making it safe to use around pets. Just be sure to leave time for the spray to dry before bedtime.

DIY Confident K9 Linen Spray

What you’ll need:

  • 18-36 drops of Confident K9
  • 1.5 ounces of water
  • .5 ounces of Everclear
  • Empty spray bottle

What you’ll do:

  1. Measure out water and Everclear in separate measuring cups.
  2. Mix essential oils into Everclear and then add water in slowly.
  3. Pour into an empty spray bottle.
  4. Spray dogs bed or horses linens lightly and allow to dry.

*If you do not want to use Everclear, then an emulsifier and preservative would be necessary. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

  1. I have a very nervous doggy 🙁 he shakes and hides from loud noises. I’m anxious to try the confident k9 spray to see if it helps relax him a little! Thanks again PT for helping us keep our whole world natural!

  2. I love using Rose hydrosol on my dog to help her smell a little better. I didn’t think of using one of the pup and pony blends in a cleaner, but it makes sense! Thank you for the great recipes and information!

  3. I can’t wait to make these recipes. My dog and cat will be happy too! Thanks PT for these great ideas!

  4. I was sad to find some of your pet line are not kid friendly. Shouldn’t you put that on the label as you do your other oils?

    1. You are correct, only one of the Pup & Pony blends is KidSafe, which is why they don’t have the KidSafe logo. But you can find a complete list of single oils that are pet safe and KidSafe here! Plus you’ll find some tips on how to safely use the Pup & Pony blends when you have kids in the home.

  5. I have the Pup & Pony Line as a gift from my daughter. Now I can use all these recipes with confidence. Great Blog.

  6. Will Plant Therapy come out with a line that is safe not only for dogs but also cats? There are many essential oils that work great for dogs but cats can’t be around. I have both so I want to sure each one is ok.

    1. We actually don’t recommend using essential oils at all around cats because their physiology prevents them from properly breaking down oils. Please check out this blog post that goes into more detail about essential oil and cats.

  7. I’ll definitely have to try the deodorizer hydrosol!! Love my dog, the “dog smell” not so much. As always, PT, great advice and the high guality products!

  8. This is great. I never know what is ok for my dog but plant therapy is a trusted source. Thanks for pet Oils and recipes above!

  9. Interesting ideas, I hadnt thought of these uses. Will have to add Confident K9 to our collection, especially before July 4.

  10. Thank you so much for these recipes. Next payday I’ll be grabbing some Confident K9 and Show Ready. I’ll be trying that hydrosols spray when I get home later.

  11. Omg!!! I love all of these ideas!! I think I’m going to need to order an other confident K9 soon!! Thank you PT!!

  12. Rose and lavender hydrosol are going in my basket now, along with Confident K-9. My mini Aussie is going to a very happy and good smelling puppy. I say puppy but he’s 6 weeks from his 1st birthday.

  13. Love the linen spray recipe! I never thought of mixing hydrosols so that is beneficial since I have those in stock at home.

  14. I can’t wait to try the hydrosols spray. And me, at the store buying Everclear: no really it’s for my dog linens… XD

  15. I was just telling my sister about the Pup and Pony line. I will be sending her this blog post for her furbabies.
