Let’s face it: litter boxes are for the pits! We love our cats and want them to be happy, healthy and friendly without smelling up the home. This simple all-natural healthy litter box powder recipe can accomplish a deodorizing effort while offering health benefits to our feline friends.
DigestZen – This essential oil blend of ginger, peppermint, caraway, coriander, anise, tarragon and fennel does just what its catchy name implies: gives harmony to the digestive system. Have a kitty prone to hairballs or diarrhea? Be sure to add this oil to your powder mixture.
Purify – An essential oil blend of lemon, lime, fir, pine, cilantro, citronella and melaleuca that is perfect for disinfecting. Every time your cat walks into his litter box, they get germs on their feet and then walk around your home, on the counter and on your chairs. GROSS! This oil will help keep those germs from spreading around the house.
Lemongrass – To keep it simple, lemongrass smells good. Adding this oil to the mix will put a pleasing smell in the air.
Lavender – Cats can be moody. They get crazy, mean, loving, irritated and anti-social. Lavender will help to keep those negative traits at bay.
1 cup Aluminum Free Baking Soda
1 drop DigestZen Essential Oil Blend
1 drop Purify Essential Oil Blend
1 drop Lemongrass Essential Oil
1 drop Lavender Essential Oil
Add all ingredients into a glass jar. Place a lid on the jar and shake the mixture. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon to each litter box after cleaning. While pawing away at the litter box, your cats will slowly absorb the essential oils through their feet while releasing pleasing scents.
WARNING: Cats are extremely sensitive to essential oils. Do not force your cat to use this powder mixture. If they don’t respond well to it, they most likely know it could hurt them. Try making a mixture with just one of the oils to pinpoint which one they don’t like. Only use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils, like those from doTERRA.
