‘New’ anti-itch treatment…
A very common herb, that is in many of our gardens.
It has been used in Western medicine for digestive upset, but it also can be a big help to our pets with recurring allergies, paw licking, ear infections.
Chinese folk medicine values mint as a treatment for itchy skin and hives.
Mint contains significant amounts of menthol, which has anesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties when applied topically.
Mint also contains high amounts of the anti-inflammatory rosmarinic acid, which is readily absorbed into the skin.
Mint Tea Rinse
To make a mint tea rinse, place 1 ounce dried mint leaves in 1 pint boiling water. Cover and allow to cool. Strain, dip a clean cloth in the tea, and apply to the itchy area when necessary.

something you should know about if you have an allergic pet.
Allergy treatment is multifactorial- as in using many different things. I have many specific instructions on my blog, but you should be using my supplement. It contains EFA’s, Antioxidants, Probiotics and Colostrum which can all help decrease the itching and inflammation.
