Comfort for tired feet!
Wire cages are the most sanitary and easy-to-clean option for rabbits. But, rabbit feet can get sore and tired if the wire on the cage bottom is a small gauge, or if the rabbit is very large.
Some homemade wire cages may not be made with the best kind of wire for rabbits. Plus, very minor damage to the cage wire, like rust or scratches, can be easy to miss. If rabbits housed in those cages also have inadequate fur coverage on the bottoms of their feet, it is easier for them to develop a condition known as sore hocks. Usually bunnies develop callouses on their feet over time which prevent sore hocks, but some rabbits may have difficulty growing or maintaining those callouses due to health issues. Also, sore hocks might tend to develop more easily in giant rabbit breeds or obese rabbits due to the added pressure from their weight.
Rabbit resting mats are an excellent answer to this problem! They provide a smooth and solid surface for rabbits to sit or recline on, allowing callouses to solidify or the rabbit to regrow fur on its soles.
What about elimination soiling the rabbit resting mat??
Wire cages are very sanitary, so housing your rabbit in one does help him stay healthy. However, if your rabbit is not litter box trained, he may not realize that eliminating all over the resting mat is less than ideal! So what's the solution?
Ideally, aromatherapy rabbit resting mats will attract bunny with their delightful scent, saving his little feet, then when it's time to do toilet business, he can hop over to the wire, do his eliminating, then resume comfortable lounging on his mat.
Heh! We all know that accidents happen, though litter box training is certainly helpful. The good thing is that the resting mats can be cleaned and the lavender oil refreshed. See below for care instructions.
Lavender helps to relieve stress temporarily!
Rabbits can also suffer from stress and anxiety, because in the wild, they are prey animals. It is in their nature to be hyperalert. The soothing lavender scent has a calming effect, helping to ameliorate a sense of alarm or anxiety without totally canceling out all their instincts.

The flowers are grown locally and organically, and distilled into chemical free, non-toxic essential oils. The blissful scent is perfectly safe just in case bunny decides to indulge in naughty gnawing.
