Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Anyone with a canine companion will attest to the challenges of long-distance auto travel. We were moving from the mid-west to Colorado. A long two day travel in over 100 degree heat. I had anticipated the difficulty so I obtained a Rx from the vet. He casually mentioned the fact that a small percentage of the dogs have a paradoxical response to the medicine; meaning instead of relaxing the animal it would make them MORE anxious. Somehow, when he said that, I knew my dog was going to fall in that group.

Within a few hours of setting out he began to whine, pace, pant, and act strangely. We stopped at as many rest stops as we could but we needed to make time. By the time we made it 1/2 way to the hotel, he was an emotional mess. I was determined not to set out the next morning until I located my oils.

After applying Peace & Calming which has Blue Tansy, Patchouli, Tangerine, Orange and Ylang ylang to all the pads on his feet, he laid down in his kennel and just let the world go by. I needed reapplications every 2-3 hours but as soon as I reapplied he would chill-out and just sit with eyes open and alert but calm. I wouldn't attempt another extended auto ride w/out the oils.
