The boys’ Roots Technologies journey begins with the highly-raved Tonic Spray which almost is a herbal-ish “cure-all” which you’ll probably have heard about from your friends.
For me, I absolutely love the smell and the effects, but the boys get super overwhelmed by it – which I will explain later in this post.
After having such amazing results with their Tonic Spray, I was obviously ecstatic to receive more Roots Technologies all-natural products for the boys to try out!
The fantastic team at Roots Technologies saw from the boys’ Instagram accounts that Lengzai was having some “hotspot” issues (fur loss at joints which constantly brush against surfaces) and that Yandao sometimes had skin patches and heavy shedding issues.
..and then they sent over a pretty sweet range of products which we’ll go through in just a bit!
Shower & Spa
Let’s start the journey with a shower and spa for the two boys. After all, we do want to get the dogs’ smelling fantastic!
I kid you not when I mention spa. You now can do this in the comfort of your own home and not necessarily at the groomers’. Woohoo to cost-savings!
So, what we did was to lather the GEN Herbal Skin Problem Relief Shampoo with water and massage deep into the coats of these two furballs. Lengzai was previously on an antibiotic chemical-based shampoo which was prescribed by the vet, and this smells significantly much better!
We then left it on for a few minutes before rinsing it off. This amazing shampoo is formulated with turmeric extracts, sea holly extracts and phaya yor extracts for various skin conditions such as inflammation, skin irritation, itch and chronic dry skin.
The end result was that it left the boys’ with a fresh, clean and pleasant scent! 🌻
- Relives itchy and chronic dry skin
- Helps reduce skin irritation and inflammation
- Deep Cleansing of pores and coat
- Nourishes your beloved pet’s skin
Did you know that Mud spas are not only wonderful treatment for humans but also your beloved pets? 💆🏻♀️ (You did watch Louis Litt from Suits enjoying his really atas mud spas – no?)
Dead Sea Mud is actually an alluvial deposit containing organic animal and plant remains (algae) together with a mixture of salts and minerals from the Dead Sea. The rich mineral mud has proved highly beneficial for both therapeutical and cosmetic treatments! 🌋
- Nourish the skin and restore its vitality
- Increases metabolism rate and aids in regeneration
- Help growth of cells and detoxify toxic material out of cell membranes
- Absorb excess oil and provide skin healing (especially for the red patchy skin!)
Since the two boys were already shampooed and had really wet coats, I applied the mud liberally and worked it deep into their coats.
Be warned: This is super messy (but totally worth it). Allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes, and do NOT exceed the timing. Then, rinse it off!
For red patchy skin conditions, it’s recommended that you use it at least once a week on your furball. Others, use it only when you require your pets’ coat to be super smooth and soft. 👶🏻
You know how your dogs get irritated every time during their bath when water gets into their ears?
Before bath (or swimming! 🏊🏻♀️), spray some Roots Herbal Ear Drops & Cleanser to your pet’s ear canal and massage into it to prevent water from going in.
Having Jojoba oil, this is not only an exceptional moisturizer but also amazing as an earwax softener. With the additional virgin coconut oil, it also helps in moisturizing and softening skin, reducing inflammation, and supporting tissue healing and repair.
Both oils applied topically together with other oils and herbs help to form a physical barrier on the skin to ward off infections, too!
Oh, and the peppermint in it has antiseptic and decongestant qualities that can help relieve the pain of ear inflammation. 🐕👂🏻
If you have been following me (or the boys’) on Instagram, you would have seen very often on my social media on how I am in love with their Roots Herbal Furtonic Spray.
I kept one bottle at almost every corner of my place, my car and my parents’ place. 🤣
As the name suggests, it’s a tonic spray packed with all-natural herbal goodness that helps in your pet’s skin and coat. It helps to ease and also heal problems such as eczema, rash, skin allergies, abscesses, fungal disorder, inflammation, minor cuts and scrapes. And it’s totally herbal too!
It helps to soothe the areas, thus reducing the urge to scratch. This protects the area from getting worse than it already is so as to allow the healing process to take place.
While some people (like me) love the herbal smell, some hate it. Some of my friends commented that this product smells like “old people” due to the mixture of all natural herbals used in it. Well, you can’t possibly have an all-natural herbal spray without all-natural herbs in it, right? 👵🏻
For me, I use this very generously on the boys after their daily walkabout sessions (you know lah, the dogs have to walk around the estate just like your MP does) to eliminate any adverse smells (sweat, saliva smells from other dogs, etc). Plus, the fragance also prevents the furry boys from licking themselves.
Yandao the Spitz is a well-known vain-pot. He thrives on attention and looking fantastic, because he knows this will lead to pretty girls around giving him loads of love and cuddles.
This is exactly why he loves looking good! (Does your furball stare into the mirror and cry when he/she have a bad haircut? Yandao does!)
Anyway, Flax Seed Oil is nature’s richest vegetable source and is also said to contain more Omega 3 Fatty Acids than fish oil. This, I add this into the boys’ meal every morning, 1/2 teaspoon for Yandao and 1 teaspoon for Lengzai once a day.
- Rich source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids
- Increase vision and circulation
- Reduce risks of cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, asthma and heart attack
- Aids in digestion and control allergies
- Increase blood flow and eliminate dry skin
- Immune system booster
One bottle goes a really long way, because the doses are really tiny. Totally worth it!
Oh, and do remember to refrigerate after opening.
They are indeed two very, very, fortunate dogs….
