calming spray for dogs


My oldest dog used to be the sweetest, happiest dog. As he’s aged, however, he’s losing his sight and hearing, and he’s become arthritic. Understandably so, he’s a bit defensive and seems to be nervous almost all the time. New places and people are scary, and he tends to stick as close to me as possible, so he doesn’t get lost.

To help ease his anxiety, I did some research on a calming spray for him. Essential oils are wonderful aromatherapy for us, and because the dog’s sense of smell is SO MUCH BETTER than ours, they are even more powerful for them! After experimenting with a few different blends, I came up with a great combination. It’s easy to make and easy to use! I simply spray it on a bandana and tie it around his neck. This way, the spray goes everywhere he goes! You’ll need a 4-ounce cobalt or amber glass spray bottle. Not sure where to get one? Check here.

How to Make It:

In a clean 4-ounce bottle, add:

Shake gently to mix, and shake gently before each use.

*Note: every dogs responds to different oils in different ways! Sometimes, what works for one dog might not for another. Other great oils to try are chamomile, wild orange, and vetiver.
