You’ve just purchased your handmade dachshund oil burner and now you’re wondering what essential oils you can put into it. Are you wondering how much and what else you can use?
Here are three ways to use your handmade dachshund oil burner:
1/ Essential oils
When using essential oils in your handmade dachshund oil burner, add water to the top (about 1/3) and then four to a maximum of ten drops in water. A few great options to use around your dog are:
Eucalyptus – Eucalyptus helps to clear congestion and is great for colds. It has antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties and, in addition, is an excellent air cleaner and deodorizer.
Lavender – Lavender is great for treating a wide range of problems and relaxes us when we are tense and stimulates us when we are low. It is also known to help treat headaches.
Lemon – Has a calming and clarifying effect on the nervous system and is very good for headaches. It also has antiviral and bactericidal properties. Mandarin, in particular, is calming and revitalising.

I designed Comfort Blend specifically for separation anxiety but the blend can also help dogs with distress, sadness, or grief. It’s also a great aid in helping dogs that have difficulty adjusting to unfamiliar circumstances. From my own experience and feedback from so many clients, I also know that Comfort Blend works well for senior dogs with Canine Cognitive Dysfunction (also known as doggie dementia).
For the best result, I recommend applying Comfort Blend directly onto the dog’s chest but alternatively, you can add 2 – 3 drops to water in your oil burner. Be aware that the blend is oily so it will leave the inside surface of your dachshund oil burner slightly oily.
3/ Wax melts
Wax melts are completely wickless scented pieces of wax that melt in an oil burner. As the wax melts, it fills up the area with its scent. Wax melts come in many shapes and sizes. Check Dotty 4 Paws website they have some great pet-friendly wax melts.
Do you remember the scented stones?
I still miss them so much! Unfortunately, I still don’t have an alternative, but fingers crossed for the future. Keep an eye on my blogs and newsletters.
