Soothing marigold tea

Marigold Tea

Marigold tea can be poured into a spray bottle and used to soothe irritated skin and heal cuts and scrapes. Fresh flower heads are tasty too, and can be added to your dogs food.

If you have any concerns, or think your dog may be allergic to marigold, speak to your vet first before using. Do not use on pregnant dogs!
