Hello everyone! I joined to seek answers for a friend who owns an EB about her dog’s facial wrinkle woes and I see this page is such a friendly wealth of info far beyond that and couldn’t resist! So here I am. I have two Frenchies CLU and TRIP Whom I show and love too obviously lol!
I also have, train, breed, handle and show American bullies and have been showing for around 10 years (5 in the abkc with bullies and before this I showed collies and Dobermans in the akc)

I have
a) a question. What are some natural wipe recipes for bulldog wrinkle care if there are any or how would you suggest I truly make it easy for my EB friend to create a routine for her dogs wrinkles? What should I suggest? She complains that they get goopy and she bought a balm (I am asking her tomorrow what her cleaning regimen is if she has one for the wrinkles at all!) and she complains the smell of the balm sends her pup into a “heck no with this” tizzy
So I’ve compiled a list of products and screen shots I’ve found in my 24 hours of hard hard internet scouring but I want to hear from real people!

Second I see many are like me and a huge essential oil fanatics. My mom is a certified aromatherapist who works for an acupuncture specialist/aromatherapist/Chinese herb Specialist/certified doctor. So I do understand the dangers and proper use of oils, so with that added I want to share my very very special and most asked for blend. I use oils for flea and ticks, allergies and skin care,minor wounds, Appetite stimulation, and more! But I have two blends that are the biggest with my show friends and they can’t get enough of it! I will not go without the CALM blend for boarders here, especially those with separation anxiety! I don’t travel without it either! I diffuse it in my hotel room for my frenchie clu who gets wound up in new hotels the first night. For show ring it’s again a must and works both effectively for humans dogs and even horses (all of my horses push their noses into my hands when I have it on them!)

I’ve seen an anxious wolf hybrid go and sniff the steam from my diffuser and literally watched his back muscles relax before he did a circle and laid next to the diffuser (he’s our worst anxiety case ever for boarders! Or was)

I’ve had a collie on the grooming table at Nationals and as I groomed her she turns her head awkwardly back towards my wrist, which has my diffuser bracelet on and tons of canine calm, she kept persistently and gently sniffing in a way that says “I really like this” then her handler and my friend (who didn’t know of our little bonding moment or my oils yet) came back to ask “who is this dog?!” I panicked wondering if I made her off in the ring but she said the girlie never once has stood in the ring and usually belly crawls half of the time in there. instead, here at nationals (the biggest show of the year) She stood and gaited for the first time and the entire time in that big scary nationals ring!

My friend’s gelding horse is always sniffing the bottle when she gets it out for him, she said he follows her and sniffs it every time and won’t stop!

I’ve spent years giving samples to friends to gain feedback and I think I’d like to share it here too since it’s done so much good for us all here So hoping it will do someone great things here too if they need it!
I’ve used it topically (on my own neck and on my dog)
I’ve used it with water to make an after bath rinse
In a diffuser
A spray spritzer Sprayed on a dog’s travel blanket
On Gemstone bracelets with lava stone diffuser beads (which I custom make btw)
And on my wrist with no bracelet too
On my custom clip on collar pendants (I’ll even share how to make them!)

Collar pendants
Pick a pendant that will not open easily when the dog shakes or plays

I use these For my own dogs but I buy 12 MM lava stone separately since they do not come with them BONUS IS I CAN PICK COLOR OF STONE OR ONE THAT IS BLACK AND NOT COLORED
JIALEEY Spiral Bead Cages Pendants, 20 PCs 14x15mm Silver Plated Stone Holder Necklace Cage Pendants Findings for Jewelry Making and Crafting https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07D7WD5WQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_yXbaFbBSZP8R9

8 Pieces Metal Keychain Clip with Key Ring Buckle Clip Hook Keyring Chain Holder for Car Key https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086MDRZ2M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_y5baFbC0DQ9EH

And viola! Easy and cheap collar pendants you can even clip them onto the crate for dogs who aren’t bad at chewing things (like I do for my older frenchie clu whos never once been a chewing or destructive dog)
Put the oils on the lava stone and clip on to collar ring
If dog shows discomfort from the scent you use remove immediately obviously!
Do not leave a dog unattended with the pendant especially for dogs prone to trying to ingest it!
You can even skip the clasp clip and just do the keychain ring to make it less dangly, if that helps keep your pup from eating or playing with it!

Alright so here it isn’t
DAKOTA ROSE’S canine calm blend and EPIC CALM which I’ve not yet made or tried but hopefully someone here does before I do and can shoot me feedback on its effectiveness for their dog!
1/2 oz (15 mil) base oil (sweet almond works fine)
3 drops lavender
3 drops Sweet marjoram
6 drops Roman chamomile
3 drops Neroli, sweet orange
or in the one I love and use Constantly I used 3 drops bergamot And 3 drops sweet orange

Epic calm
1/2 oz base oil
3 drops valerian
2 drops vetiver
4 drops petit grain
3 drops sweet marjoram
2 drops sweet orange
2 drops bergamot

So again, I look forward to all of these insightful forums and learning more about bulldog health issues,care, grooming and dog tricks and tips that work for any breed as well as the holistic pages and oil blends but overall I’m thankful to have found and joined this group! Hello all!
