Remember when the idea of using aromatherapy or essential oils was kinda "woo-woo" or fringe? People often clumped aromatherapy in with reading tea leaves and divining your future by throwing bones and stones (not that there is anything wrong with reading tea leaves or throwing bones). Those days are behind us and aromatherapy is fully 100% mainstream.
Since dogs can't read or Google (yet), there is no such thing as a placebo effect for dogs. We can trust aromatherapy works when we SEE the results in our own dogs behavior.
The best way for your dog to achieve maximum benefits is through a combination of breathing in the oils and by the oils being absorbed through the skin. This is done by applying the oils onto your dog and allowing them to sniff as desired.
BEAUTIFULLY BALANCED! Since our dogs have such a powerful sense of smell we do not want to overpower them with too strong of a fragrance or harm their delicate skin with essential oils that are too strong or "hot" as they are called. That is why we dilute the oils with jojoba oil, almond oil and grapeseed oil which also allows for quick absorption. And we use only enough to achieve results, not assault their sense of smell.
Most of the emotional balancing our dogs need stems from these core basic needs.
Our dogs need to feel grounded, relaxed and present… which allows them to feel SAFE
Our three essential oil blends build upon this cornerstone for our dogs emotional well-being. First is RELAX, which relaxes and calms our dogs. This allows them to then FOCUS, when needed, and be involved in the activity at hand. And, of course, AGE WELL supports our dogs throughout their senior years.
TIP! The different dogs on the labels are our celebration of the diversity of dogs. Choose any label you like.
RELAX Dog Aromatherapy was created to take the edge off your dog's stress without the need for powerful drugs or uncomfortable restraints.
Just as we have triggers that cause fear or even panic, like spiders, snakes, public speaking, flying, heights (my heart is pounding thinking about peering over the edge of a cliff), or those creepy clowns, dogs can also be triggered. Thunderstorms terrify many dogs and 4th of July fireworks can be a big stress factor. Separation from loved ones, being left home alone, travel, trips to the vet can all be stress triggers for our dogs.
RELAX for your dog uses a gentle custom blend of safe essential oils to gently calm and relax your dog. We offer a spray and roll-on formulation which can be used separately or together for maximum benefits.
A bittersweet part of sharing our lives with dogs is that they don't live as long as we do. A dog can have a long, full life in a fraction of the time a person has on this earth. Knowing this does not make it any easier as we watch our dearest friend age.
Many dogs, just like people, begin to show forgetfulness or a lack awareness of their surroundings as they age. Some may become frightened or disoriented for no discernible reason.
AGE WELL helps your senior dog relax and be more peaceful and present…making their aging process gentler.
Is your dog the proverbial tasmanian devil? Running back and forth, bouncing around, picking up one toy only to immediately drop it and grab another toy? Then in a flash, he has forgotten the toys and has a water bottle that he is making that annoying crackling noise with?
This high energy type of dog can be fun to live with when you want some entertainment, but a handful when you are at training class, are on a walk or are venturing into the show ring.
Is your dog the opposite? The one you call and call and he acts as if you do not exist, the dog who passive aggressively (I am anthropomorphizing, I know) refuses to do anything you want. FOCUS may be the answer.
Use prior to any class or activity where you want your dog to pay attention to you. FOCUS amps up concentration and increases attention span.
