This formula is easy to use and soothing for hot spots, bug bites, and other skin irritations. This recipe is safe for dogs and cats, but avoid use on open wounds.


  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 30 drops calendula tincture


  1. Combine the salt and water in a small bottle with a cap, and shake it a few times. Add the calendula tincture, and shake it again.

To use: Fit the bottle with a mister, and spray lightly on the affected area. Try to keep your pet from pestering the treated area until the formula dries. Shake the bottle before each use.
