Description

A canine general purpose antiseptic product that doesn't sting. Used topically for minor cuts, scrapes, and abrasions to help aid in the healing process.  Also, deters your loved one from licking, gnawing or scratching the wound.  This product has also been used orally to bolster the immune system after injury.  

Four notable essential oils that have antibiotic properties are Clove Oil, Tulsi Holy Basil Oil, Yarrow Oil, and Oil of Oregano. Aunt Lyn’s uses a combination of these oils to give LUV IN A BOTTLE its germ killing strength.

We also use the finest carrier oils chosen for their own targeted immune boosting ability.  In LUV IN A BOTTLE, we use Pure Organic Coconut Oil and/or 100% Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

Essential oils – once known as aromatic oils – have been used for herbal and botanical medicines and remedies for thousands of years by many cultures around the world. The earliest evidence of essential oil usage dates back to 3000 to 2500 BC. It can easily be argued that the knowledge gained by studying the effects of essential oils on health formed the basis of pharmaceuticals.

Why It Was Developed

Aunt Lyn’s LUV IN A BOTTLE is the cornerstone of our Essential Oil Wellness line.

Early on, Aunt Lyn noticed that pet parents were using double and triple antibiotic human ointments because they were handy and didn't require a trip to the vet. While this may sometimes work, it isn’t a good idea to use human medications on animals. Also, the overuse of antibiotics can result in bacteria becoming more resistant to medication.

There are pet antiseptic products for dogs on the market, but most of them sting and are made with non-natural ingredients. If there were non-stinging children’s antiseptics why couldn’t a non-stinging product made from natural ingredients be made for dogs? As Aunt Lyn often says, “Humans have been treating themselves and their pets using natural ingredients for thousands of years – well before the formation of the first pharmaceutical company. God gave us all we need . . . in nature.”

So, Aunt Lyn developed and over time perfected LUV IN A BOTTLE, a non-sting, holistic, multi-use antiseptic that can be used both topically and internally.

The first dog to benefit from this proprietary blendwas a very special boxer name Nica James. She lived a long healthy pain-free life, thanks in part to LUV IN A BOTTLE.

We can't wait to hear how LUV IN A BOTTLE has helped your furry companion. Please upload a happy picture of you and your pal with your review.

WHY DEVELOPED

Aunt Lyn’s LUV IN A BOTTLE is the cornerstone of our Essential Oil Wellness line. All our products are developed with love in mind.

Early on, Aunt Lyn noticed that pet parents were using double and triple antibiotic human ointments, because they were handy and didn't require a trip to the vet. While this may work, it sometimes isn’t a good idea to use human medications on animals. Also, the overuse of antibiotics can result in bacteria becoming more resistant to medication.

As for the pet antiseptic products for dogs, most of them stung. She realized that if there were non-stinging children's antiseptics then there should be no reason why a non-stinging product couldn’t be developed for dogs using natural ingredients. After all, she often says, “God didn't put us on this earth and expect us to wait a few thousand years for pharmaceutical companies to reign and save us. He gave us all we need . . . in nature”

So, overtime Aunt Lyn developed and perfected LUV IN A BOTTLE , a non sting, holistic, triple antibiotic - antiseptic that can be used both topically and internally.

The first dog to benefit from this proprietary blend and show us we had a winner, was a very special boxer name Nica James. She lived a long healthy pain free life, thanks in part to LUV IN A BOTTLE.

It is known to reduce stress, neutralize bacterial and viral pathogens, improve digestion, strengthen bones and reduce inflammation. It is also well known for lowering fever, healing skin conditions, aiding in weight loss and strengthening the respiratory system.

The many uses of Thieves Oil :

Oregano Oil

Known primarily for its ability to add flavor to many foods, Oregano Oil is also used to treat a number of physical ailments. The herb boasts strong antimicrobial, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

It is often used as a digested and respiratory aid (lessening mucus), and has been used for centuries to help get rid of intestinal parasites. Oregano is known to have powerful antioxidant and anticancer activity.

“In a study at Georgetown University, essential oil of oregano inhibited the growth of Staphylococcus (staph) bacteria in the test tube as effectively as antibiotics did.” - Prescription for Dietary Wellness: Using Foods to Heal by Phyllis A. Balch, CNC

In nature, dogs would eat herbs and grasses that were naturally and readily available to them, in order to help keep their gut balanced and parasites in check. In today's world - many urban dwellings have no yards and even in suburban areas the landscape is not filled with the raw wild herbs that are needed. This is one reason why more and more people are turning to essential oils - essential oils for both themselves and their beloved pets.

“In one study, 77 percent of patients treated for enteric parasites were parasite free after taking oil of oregano in tablet form for six weeks. At this writing, it has inhibited the growth of at least ten different microbes, including Candida albicans (yeast).”

Clove Bud Oil

Clove oil, derived from the clove leaf is widely known as a herb, but clove oil has many uses in daily life, especially for ailments that typically strike. Some of the many benefits are, relieving tooth and gum irritations, moisturizers dry skin and treats other skin issues, improves blood circulation. It can also be used as an insect repellent.

At Aunt Lyn’s, we use clove oil for all the therapeutic reasons listed above. If not treated, dogs may lick and gnaw on their wounds, hot spots, itchy feet and ears. This does not aid healing. It can actually delay healing and cause infections. Clove in tiny amounts will deter the dog from licking and aid the healing process.

Be careful with using clove oil – and any essential oil – as it must be diluted properly. If you are interested In learning more begin here http://articles.mercola.com/herbal-oils/clove-bud-oil.

Yarrow

Yarrow is a plant that flowers similar to chamomile and chrysanthemum. It contains flavonoids, plant based chemicals that increase saliva and stomach acid which helps improve digestion. Traditionally, it is used in three ways:

Yarrow is a powerhouse with regard to your dog’s medicinal needs. In our opinion, it is one of the best staples to have in your first aid kit and we use it often when blending remedies.

Here are a few of its benefits; antiseptic, anti-Inflammatory, astringent, analgesic, expectorant, insect repellant, and worm expeller.

Ginger

Ginger comes in two primary forms, fresh and ground. Whatever ginger you choose, you can count on it doing great things for your health. The root is full of vitamins, minerals, and compounds that help your body grow and repair itself, and your brain to stay in tip top shape. The root is also packed with phenolic compounds that improve your digestive system. It is also able to reduce nausea and bolster your immune system. Additionally, it helps relieve muscle discomfort, reduce inflammation in joints, improves cognitive function, and reduce levels of bad cholesterol.

We love ginger for ourselves and our furry friends can benefit too. It can relieve arthritis, bloat, and studies have shown success using Ginger as a preventive in both cancer and heartworm. It is a terrific anti inflammatory and even can relieve nausea.

Lavender

The essential oil of lavender when applied externally treats joint pain, muscle aches, and a variety of skin conditions including insect stings, acne, eczema, and burns. Lavender essential oil when inhaled can relieve headaches, anxiety and stress. A tincture of lavender taken by mouth can relieve joint pain, depression, migraines, indigestion, and anxiety.

Our canine friends can benefit from lavender in a huge way. Of course, it is one of the more pleasing essential oil scents that also repels certain pesky bugs. Lavender from different parts of the world and different varieties can help calm agitated high anxiety or stress canines.

“Traditional treatments for travel-induced excitement in dogs may be time-consuming, expensive or associated with adverse effects. Aromatherapy in the form of diffused lavender odor may offer a practical alternative treatment …” (Wells, D.L. 2006. Aromatherapy for travel-induced excitement in dogs, JAVMA 229(6): 964–67.)

Rosemary

The Rosemary leaf and twigs of the rosemary plant are used for culinary and medicinal purposes. It is used as a spice when cooking and also used for fragrance in soaps and cosmetics. Traditionally, rosemary has been used medicinally to improve memory, relieve muscle pain and spasm, stimulate hair growth, and support the circulatory and nervous systems. Rosemary is often used in aromatherapy to increase concentration and memory, and to relieve stress.

Rosemary is one of many herbs that when blended properly can repel both fleas and tick. It is also a great spice to add to your dogs homemade food because it can boost his or her immune system.

Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice with a peppery flavor and mild smell. It is extremely popular as a seasoning, as well as a healthy and great remedy for many illnesses. It can help fight against obesity and it is used as an anti-inflammatory to help reduce joint and muscle pain caused by several diseases. It also treats bowel diseases, helps relieves cystic fibrosis, prevents some cancers, helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and protects your heart and liver.

Turmeric is a staple in Aunt Lyn's home, for herself and her dog friends. Turmeric has been thought to prevent cancer, to aid digestive issues, and to help clean teeth by keeping plaque away and bacteria that causes bad breath in our canine companions.

Basil

Basil is from a native plant originally from India. It is one of the most popular culinary herbs. While known for its many varieties, it is popular for its distinct aromas that come from their essential oils contained in its leaves. Medicinally, it has been known to help treat common colds, headaches, stomach disorders, inflammation, heart disease, various forms of poisoning, and malaria. Basil can be also used as an aromatic nerve tonic. It clears the head, relieves intellectual fatigue, and gives the mind strength and clarity.

Basil is another herb we sprinkle on our homemade dog food and treats. It helps our canines with inflammation, digestion, and fresh breathe!

So add this herb into your precious pet’s food.

Parsley

Parsley is a surprisingly healthy food for a number of reasons. Having been used for centuries, it is more than just a garnish. It is an incredibly healthy herb that contains a wide range of helpful vitamins.

It is full of vitamin C, which is best known for giving your immune system a boost. Parsley contains ample amounts of folic acid. Foods high in folic acid can help the body regulate blood pressure and produce and maintain cells.

Vitamin K is also found in parsley and is incredibly important nutrient in helping the body respond to injuries. Why?

Because it helps in the clotting process, giving the body a chance to stop the damage and begin the healing process.

Vitamin K has also been shown to help reduce the risk of bone damage and build bone durability. Parsley is known to aid in digestion, can reduce inflammation around the joints to reduce pain and could possibly act as a diuretic.

Using parsley for our dogs enables us to share many of the same health benefits listed above for people.

At Aunt Lyn's we always make sure to sprinkle parsley in our homemade dog food for an immune boost and for fresh, clean breath.

Eggshells

There are surprising uses for eggshells. They are known to be packed with protein. They also contain nutrients that promotes healthy joints, like collagen, chondroitin, glucosamine, and hyaluronic acid. The calcium rich shells can act as a natural supplement for certain animals. The gently abrasive shells can be used externally as an exfoliant. As a household cleaner, the abrasive particles will safely buff away stains and grease. The calcium in the shells can also help your plants grow faster and healthier, and take the bitterness out of your ground coffee.

Regarding our canine’s health, many people make the mistake of feeding their four legged companions either cooked or raw eggs (if the dog is on a raw diet) and then throwing out the eggshell. The eggshell contains not only beneficial vitamins but also helps balance the nutrients in the egg yolk and whites. Not including the eggshell reduces the beneficial effects of the egg and could potentially result in a depletion of the calcium reserve.

Another super benefit our dogs and pups can get from eggshells is the ability to naturally express their anal sacs. Having this occur naturally is always much better then doing manually expressing our dogs anal sacs, ourselves or having our veterinarians do it. Either way it is an unpleasant experience for us and our dog!

So add those eggshells!

Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal powder is an amazing substance and with many benefits. It adsorbs more poisons than any other substance known to mankind. As the absorption ability is one of the major benefits of activated charcoal, this substance is routinely used in hospitals and by physicians. It can do various things because of its ability to attract other substances to the surface and hold them there. This is called “adsorption” (not absorption). The powder is used for many uses such as cleansing the mouth and the digestive tract. Charcoal is used as a remedy when many different types of poisons have been swallowed. Physicians recognize activated charcoal’s benefits and use the substance for several purposes. To treat insect bites, poisoning, diarrhea, foot and mouth disease, disinfect and deodorize wounds, filter toxins from the blood in liver and kidney diseases. Additional uses are for treating acne and skin issues, indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, bowel diseases, and high blood pressure.

With our favorite furry canine pet partners, activated charcoal can be used to take the “sting” out of bee stings, fire ants, and other bug bites. It draws out the toxins that can cause a histamine reaction.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been a major component of alternative medicine for thousands of years. It is rich in nutrients making it a well-rounded food that will ensure your body has what it needs to be healthy. The bark contains a number of oils that provide the body with many benefits. Some of the benefits are that it controls blood pressure, boosts brain function, improves essential colon function, protects against heart disease, improves blood circulation, treats respiratory infections, helps prevent some cancers, reduces bad cholesterol, treats neurodegeneration diseases and alleviates arthritis pain.

Cinnamon is a “hot” oil and you need to be very careful when using on your dog. While all essential oils must be diluted with a carrier oil, it is even more important that cinnamon oil be diluted and not used at full strength.

With the proper essential oil blend, cinnamon can do wonders in keeping fleas and ticks away, and it also help boost the effectiveness in other natural blends in helping with respiratory and or allergy issues.

Chamomile

Two distinct plants, German and Roman chamomile, are both known as chamomile and are often used interchangeably. They both look like miniature daisies and are traditionally thought to possess similar medicinal benefits.

The modern use of chamomile dates back to 1921 when a German firm introduced a topical form. This cream became a popular treatment for a wide variety of skin disorders, including eczema, bedsores, skin inflammation caused by radiation therapy, and dermatitis.

Chamomile in the form of tea is said to reduce mild tension, stress, and aid in indigestion.

A medicinal use of chamomile in pet health is to reduce vomiting, especially pups who vomit when excited. It can also be used in many essential oil blends to calm anxious dogs.

Eucalyptus

The eucalyptus tree originated in Australia and Tasmania. There are many different varieties of eucalyptus, with somewhat different constituents. The most common type used medicinally is eucalyptus globules. Eucalyptus oil has a long history of use as a topical antiseptic. It has also been used as a lozenge, and with inhalation therapy for asthma, coughs, sore throats, and other respiratory conditions. Other combination therapies containing eucalyptus oil can be found in aromatherapy.

Eucalyptus leaves include tannins which are used for treatment of inflammation. The oil derived from the leaves and branch tips contain cineole, which is a natural antiseptic.

Some additional benefits are the relief of nasal congestion, headache, and overall malaise.

With regard to our dogs, eucalyptus can be used in blends to keep away dangerous fleas, ticks, and even those annoying horse flies

Castile

Castile soap contains vegetable-based ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, hemp oil, and jojoba oil along with water, and other essential oils. As they are based on vegetable oils rather than animal fat, pure castile soaps are suitable for vegans.

Castile soap is gentle on the environment as it is free of artificial foaming agents, fragrances, chemicals detergents, petrochemicals, and toxic antibacterial agents.

Aside from its super natural formulation, one of the biggest reasons to use castile soap is its versatility such as a nourishing body wash and healthy dog shampoo.

At Aunt Lyn's, we use environmentally and pet safe castile soap as the base in our exclusive Holistic Shampoo. Together with castile and our proprietary essential oil blend, our shampoo becomes not only a great smelling wash but an antibacterial, antiviral, and bug repealing powerhouse.
