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.

I had a golden retriever, labrador mix named Valley. As she got older, Valley developed anxiety when a smoke detector would go off. My grandparents have a sensitive detector, so every time we would go visit, it would go off. Valley would shake off and on for two plus hours after the sound. I'd try to take her for a walk, but she'd just start shaking again when she walked back through the door.

When I started using Young Living oils, I thought I'd try Peace & Calming for this situation. The next time the smoke detector went off, I put a drop of Peace & Calming on my palm and stuck it right in front of Valley's nose. She didn't always like it in that moment, but it was so beneficial for her. She would stop shaking IMMEDIATELY and would act as if the event never happened afterwards.

Animals don't usually need the oils held right next to their nose as they are much more sensitive to smells. In this case, I wanted to get her attention and make her sniff it.
