I was at a client's home doing an in-home massage session when it began to thunder. Her dog started going absolutely berserk barking. I had my essential oils with me and suggested we try Lavender to try to calm the dog down. We put one drop on her head, between her ears (since she was too worked up to try to put it on her paw!) Within 30 seconds she stopped barking, started wagging her tail sheepishly and laid down on her bed. It was amazing to see!
