Dogs Love Raindrops
Not RAINING on us humans but dropping essential oils on us. Okay Mom is a HUGE fan of raindrop technique for humans. She is also a HUGE fan of it for using on dogs. On most of her dogs she has to just do a modified massage on them with the oils but with MOI, I took the entire raindrop technique and I can tell you it was MAH-velous DAH-ling!
For me it was to support my body as I aged and also to give me some relief from my aging discomfort. For her other dogs it is for both support and to give relief of discomfort. She says we smell really nice too…okay but naturally reared dogs (aka those raised without all those toxins as I mentioned in the previous class and fed a raw carnivore diet) smell nice anyway. It’s a benefit of being raised naturally. I mean you don’t think carnivore predators would catch much prey if they smelled badly all the time do you???
I digress…back to the raindrop technique. You can learn all about the human technique and the oils used, on this Young Living site: https://www.youngliving.com/raindrop/
Mom is not one of those proponents of putting oils on the bottoms of our feet bepaws our paws have scent glands there and also it is a detoxification pathway for us. But you can do the Vitaflex up our legs. Or not. You can do the full raindrop on our spine. Or you can modify it to just a massage using oils.
There are videos on YouTube on how to do one (as you see at the beginning of this lesson).
OR you can get veterinarian Dr. Nancy Brandt’s DVD on how to do one:
Sometimes Mom just does a massage using the first oil blend in the technique, Valor – and this video may enlighten you as to why:
And here is one of mom doing a massage on her American Bully, King – he is like me he LOVES this but he never stays still for a full one so she just does a massage with the oils – it gets cut off at the end bepaws something to do with iPad saying it was too long to upload so it cut it off but you will get the idea:
This and diffusing the oils are two of mom’s most favorite ways to use essential oils with dogs – and of course she would NEVER use any other oils other than Young Living this way on dogs, WOOF!
