The medicinal properties of Rooibos tea are well documented. It has been shown to boost the immune system, it has anti-allergic and antispasmodic properties. Rooibos contains Iron, Potassium and Copper which are all good for metabolic function. Calcium, Manganese, Zinc and Alpha Hydroxy Acid are essential for healthy skin and bones.

Chamomile is also an effective anti-depressant and analgesic. Grape Seed oil is high in anti-oxidants and it has been found to improve blood circulation and has anti-inflammatory properties.

The dosage does depend on the size of the animal:
Cats : 1 tsp (5ml) per day
Small– medium dogs: 1—2tsp (5ml—10ml) per day
Large dogs: 1 dessertspoon (15ml) per day
Horses: 3-4 dessertspoons ( 45-60ml) per day, depending on the size.
Once itching subsides lower the amount to 3 times a week. To maintain a healthy skin and coat, continue to administer once a week.
Results are usually seen 7—10 days after starting on the oil. The key to success is to be diligent in the daily administration of Rooibos anti-itch.
NB If itching persists please consult your veterinarian.
The only know adverse side effects of the Rooibos anti-itch for Animals, is that over dosage can lead to diarrhoea.
Using Rooibos Anti-itch
Rooibos Anti-itch is an internal nutritional supplement. It is a palatable oil which can be poured over food or given as is. Most animals enjoy the taste and will lap it up without coaxing. It can also be used topically for rashes and hot spots, only on UNBROKEN skin.
Most itchy skin is caused by an allergy of some sort, although Rooibos anti-itch for animals helps animals to reduce the irritation caused by the allergy, it is important to find out what is causing the reaction. The most common cause is fleas, so make sure your animal friend and their environment are treated with an effective flea control. Another cause of irritation is often diet related, so be sure to investigate natural, nutritional diets for your animal companion who may not be able to cope with the additives in commercial pet food.
Vegetable & Grapeseed oil infused with Organic Rooibos leaves and Organic Chamomile Flowers.
19 out of 19 people would recommend this product11/09/2018, By henrietteI first brought a small bottle from a pet shop to try out for skin and coat maintenance for my border collies. Not sure whether it really helps for itchiness, but it definitely helps for a soft and glossy coat. I ordered a 500ml to continue using the oil for maintenance for the collies and the added health benefits. A lot of skin/coat maintenance products for dogs, come in a squirt bottle. The last bit always goes wasted. I like that this product comes in a normal bottle.11/07/2018, By ShireenMy dogs coats are so shiny and soft but it doesn't help much with one of my dog's itchy skins. But highly recommended07/07/2018, By TerriAlthough my dogs still seem to be itching, their coats are so soft and shiny. So I would buy it again because it is definitely doing something for their skin/coat, even if it's not helping the itching as much.27/05/2018, By TaniaAlthough Colt's coat is looking good, I'm not sure how much it has helped with itching.12/04/2018, By AnneSeems to help my doggie with itching and she loves the taste. Many thanks.30/10/2017, By PatriciaHelps with itching skin and easy to administer in the food. My dogs seem to like it.24/10/2017, By AvrilI am currently using the Rooibos Anti-Itch for my cat who have been suffering with allergies for the last four years. This product is amazing and have done wonders for my baby. She looks amazing and her coat feels amazing no more open wounds and no more excessive scratching. For the first month I gave it to her every 2nd day by using a syringe and now every third day. She have been on so many different medications over the years which only worked for a week or so then she start scratching again.10/10/2017, By BeateIt helped my little one with an allergy, but she didn't like the taste so I had to mix it under gravy or similar.25/08/2017, By LeeanneMy dog loves the taste of this and it's great knowing he is getting something natural and good in. I haven't seen any improvement to his itchy paws yet though, and I have been giving this to him for two weeks now.31/07/2017, By nickiSuper product. Has certainly helped putting condition back on my rescued pony. His coat is shining again and is not dry05/06/2017, By nickiHave used it for my dog but remain undecided as I am not certain if it had any affect or if I should have continued using it to see an improvement26/05/2017, By RushaI have an allergic cat - I have tried everything. Unfortunately she is vol fiemies and won't eat her food if there is anything on it. Maybe think twice before buying for cats as they are more finicky about what they eat.20/07/2016, By DeonaI use this oil in combination with Efficient Microbes Pro-Canine and Herbal Pet Serenity Formula. My Mini Schnauzer used to get regular bouts of Bacterial Folliculitis and Schnauzer bumps that the vet treated with prolonged courses of antibiotics. His skin has been clear for 15 months now. The combination of products seem to work magic.07/01/2016, By CandiceI bought this product out of desperation as my poor Ridgeback suffers from skin allergies. The vets I have taken him too cannot really pinpoint the cause - they say its probably grass or pollen or dust. He now only eats Arcana (super expensive dry food with only meat (fish) and veg) and I bath him in expensive anti-allergy shampoo. However, he still gets flare ups and scratches a lot.
I have been adding this oil to his food for a couple of weeks now. At first I thought it was working, as his itching seemed to reduce a bit, but now it seems to be back again...
So, I am not sure if I can blame the product, or if his allergies are just impervious to ALL products I try. Maybe this product works well for certain types of skin conditions and not others.
That is why I have not given a high star rating, but have said I would recommend it to a friend - I would tell others to give it a try and see if it works on their dog. The nice thing is that it will not do any harm to try.
My dog is not put off by having it poured over his pellets at meal times, and he can be quite a fussy eater.14/07/2015, By WendyI adopted a rescue pup in Jan 2015 and he has battled with skin allergies from grass to food etc. This product has made the world of difference in my fur-babies life. His skin is almost perfect and his coat is starting to shine...Love it and will be placing a order for more right now21/03/2015, By RosemaryExcellent product which I use for my Whippet who gets an allergy to the wet grass in summer. My order arrived timeously and thank you to Faithful to Nature for your help and good service.17/03/2014, By DawnThis is a really wonderful product. I use it for all my pets(5 dogs, 5 cats) I bought it inparticular for my 16 year old maltii who has suffered from eczema since birth, this product is the first one, after numerous veterinarian visits,medications and tablets , that has really made a total difference in his condition, no more constant scratching and itchy, raw, sore,patchy skin , and a very happy dog .... not to mention his owner! :) I recommend this product wholeheartedly,.17/10/2013, By LizanMust tell you how brain washed my dog is on the Rooibos Aromatics Rooibos Anti-Itch Skin Care for Animals, whenever I shake the bottle he comes running and only picks out the pellets with the oil on it. The product has made a huge impact on his itching.
