This is a concoction I made for Koda, my pupdog! I call it the “Puppy Pacifier” and have used it to help her relieve stress of all kinds. Though she mainly has issues during storms, she sometimes has an issue with separation and this just chills her out so she’s not anxious and trying to follow us out of the door. I keep a small batch on hand so I’m not scrambling in the moment.
I only recommend Young Living Essential Oils for their quality and purity, and they must be diluted according to your pet’s weight/size. Toy dogs 75% dilution; small/medium 50%; med/large 25%; 80lbs+ human adult dose. Animals are individuals, and what works well for some, may not work well for others. Start light, and adjust accordingly. The recipe shared below is what I personally use on my 50 lb dog.
