BALMS FOR CALM are intended for dogs, horses, and the people who love them. Put a small amount on the back of your hands. Vets, techs, dentists, groomers, and horse shoers put it on their forearms so the animals still get the benefits even when they put on their “work gloves.” Trainers put a dab on their shoes or pants cuff. Some put a bit on a towel and hang nearby crate or kennel or on a bandana and tie near the collar. Avoid silk, linen, and fine leather goods as oils can stain. Since these products contain essential oils, we do not recommend that cats have any physical contact with the balms as they may ingest it while grooming.
