Organic Dog Breath Freshener

Last week, I shared some home remedies for people (and their pets) who embrace organic living. I’m following up with another mini-recipe from newspaper columnist and author Heloise, author of Get Organized with Heloise.

To make this simple dog breath freshener, you’ll need a 20-oz. (or larger) plastic water bottle. Fill it halfway with cold water. Add one very small drop (.05 mL) of peppermint essential oil.

Cap the bottle and shake for 30 seconds to mix thoroughly. Fill the rest of the bottle with cold water. Shake again and pour the water into your dog’s bowl.

Sweet breath—and a happier owner!
