How do you make dog nose butter?

Step 1: In a microwave-safe dish add wax and heat in 20-second intervals until fully melted. Stir in between heatings.

Step 2: Add everything else to wax and mix well. You may need to reheat as you want it to be liquid and fully mixed.

Step 3: Pour mixture into a container and allow to cool before using. It will be firm when cooled. If you want more of a whipped texture like in the picture. Scrape with a spoon or knife to soften it up and place it back in the container.

I usually make mine in a 4-ounce canning jar. Once the mixture has cooled completely, screw on a lid and rub it onto your dog’s nose every few days to keep their nose smooth and moisturized.
