Lumino Canine Cool Balm For Hot Spots 1.65 oz Aromatherapy For Hot Spot Relief Product Information Hot spots are extremely painful sores that develop on a dog's skin. They can be the result of many things, including bug bites, small sores, or scratches on the skin that begin to itch and bother the animal. As the sore becomes increasingly irritating, the dog begins to lick, chew, and scratch the area, causing bacteria to grow and creating a hot spot. The key with hot spots is to act quickly, as they can go from being barely visible to several inches in size and just thirty minutes. When the problem goes untreated, the spot can increase to twenty times its original size in just a day. Canine Cool Balm for Hot Spots is a combination of anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-microbial,m and anti-bacterial carrier and essential oils. We have formulated this balm with Cedarwood, Carrot Seed, Sweet Marjoram, and Niaouli. These oils were specifically chosen for their ability to alleviate the pain associated with bites, eczema, dry itchy skin, rashes, and minor wounds. The carrier oils, organic coconut oil and organic castor oil, both have long histories of being used therapeutically. Organic food grade Diatomaceous Earth is added for its drying properties and high mineral content. Formulated from all natural human-grade ingredients, this balm is safe if ingested. Directions: This amazing formula goes on easily. Put a nickel size amount in the palm of your hand and rub until it's very soft before applying to the hot spot. In a short time all the oiliness disappear, leaving a thin layer of protection on the skin which allows air to penetrate and begin drying the hot spot. Ingredients: Orcanic coconut oil, organic castor oil, wildcrafted candelilla wax, organic food-grade diatomaceous earth, essential oils of carrot seed, cedarwood, geranium, lavender, and sweet marjoram.
