    Default Schultz is 10!!!!



    It's been a little while since I've posted so to catch up...
    Sgt.Schultz is turning 10 tomorrow and is still full of himself. His health has been pretty good (lots of maintenance) but I wouldn't trade him for the world.
    I've been home cooking for about 3 years (in a pinch we use a grain free honest kitchen that we add a protein to) and this seems to work well for his system.
    His chronic ear infections have been healed with a blend of essential oils that we apply weekly with a cotton balls - better than any antibiotic or vet supplied ear drop.
    He loves walks (or riding in his stroller if we are going super far), riding in the car, getting bubble baths, finding a ray of sunshine to nap in, chewing his nylabone, tunneling through a snowdrift... He is such a joy and I'm grateful for everyday we have his sweet soul to bless our lives.
    I baked him a birthday cake for tomorrow-
    Gluten free peanut butter banana bacon... It turned out awesome.

    2 1/2 cups gluten free flour mix
    3/4 cup powdered peanut butter
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 mashed bananas
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups almond milk
    6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled - I used applegate farms

    Mix thoroughly in mixer - grease 9x13 baking pan with coconut oil - spread batter in pan - bake at 375 for 35 minutes - freeze what you won't use in a week.

    Love to you all
    Sarah

    @Saalwi wow nice to see that breed at 10 yrs young! Happy birthday

    Can I ask you what is the essential oil blend you use? I use essential oils daily for myself and in my diffuser every single day. Big believer in oils. I also home cook. Just making sure to give Nyala a good start since she's still a pup.

    Thank you

    @nubonics

    Every day I use essential oils im a firm believer in oils. For ear infection there must be at least, eucalyptus, tea tree and maybe lavender.

    Or/and also can be more. Hope Sarah answers im curious now. Lol

    Here is the essential oil recipe for ear infections or just maintaining good ear health.

    Spray on cotton ball and wipe out ears ...don't spray directly in ears.

    In a 2 ounce glass spray bottle, combine:

    15 drops Lavender
    15 drops Geranium
    15 drops Frankincense
    15 drops Basil
    10 drops Arborvitae
    Fractionated Coconut Oil to fill the bottle about 3/4 of the way full
    Shake bottle well before using. Use once a week to treat ears that have an ear infection or once a month as a preventative measure in ears that are prone to recurrent ear infections

    If ears are especially inflamed or infected, dilute 2 drops of lavender in 4 drops of fractionated coconut oil on a cotton ball and apply lightly to soothe the inflamed ear area.

    Thanks for the ingredients. Im sure you know but for others make sure it's pure essential oils. 99% of the time you should have a bin# on the bottle that's for recalls. Ive never seen recalls in oils but you do have the so call words as "pure, 100%, organic" and they are not! If you see bottle is cheap in price that's another way to know it's not pure. Here's a link you can read more on for the ones not sure what to buy. There are other good links too. Do your homework guys read, read, read!!!

    Again thank you Sarah
