Just bought some Argon oil after reading lots of comments on here about its beneficial uses. So how do you recommend I use it? Is it just after a bath, and how much? I presume it doesn't leave Dobby and the house looking like an oil slick

I put about a dime size amount of the oil in my palm and rub my hands together before rubbing it all over the kitty. I try to get most of it on my cats back/tail area as that/s where mine are most dry.

Thanks and how often do you do this?

This is interesting. I just got some argon oil and used it on myself before using it on Luna. I didn’t use a lot but it soaked in and dried quickly. I did not feel greasy at all like with coconut oil.

I use the iv san bernard argan oil but I will use any 100% argan on the cats. I have a bottle from the aura cacia brand I am using up right now. I got a free bottle from josie maran when I did some sephora shopping and used that on the cats. I got a bottle from Deciem The Ordinary brand and that was good. The Ordinary brand is a really good price and you can order some skin care for yourself at the same time. (Grin)
I also use emu oil on their ears to help with dryness. I usually oil up the cats every 2 to three days. I try and use it with a petting session so it is something enjoyable.

Thank you that is really useful. We shall turn the oil day I to a mini pamper day. Why do you use Emu instead of Argan on the ears and i take it that is just on the outside not inside.

I use emu oil on the inside of the ears but NOT down the ear canal. I use it because it is very gentle and has anti inflammatory properties.
