Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


My dog is a yellow lab. When he is stressed he follows me everywhere. I can't even go to the bathroom without him following me. I think it is because of our separation and he is worried I will leave him. Some days seem to be worse than others.

Last night I put 2 drops of my Lavender essential oil on his back and touched the pads of his feet. He slept soundly through the night. I woke at 5 am this morning and went to the washroom and have been awake since. Once he opened his eyes to see where I was going then closed them again.

Right now as I am typing, he is snoring, doing that rem sleep thing where he is running. He brought his key koala bear on my bed last night so I tucked it under his leg. Again he woke, stretched and is back sleeping again. I took his picture with a flash, didn't faze him.

Turned on the bedroom lamp, nothing, he is still snoring away and every now and then takes a deep breath, exhales and back to snoring. I'm very impressed. Lavender is truly safe for him and it helps his allergies but mostly it allows him to truly calm down. I am sure Chaff senses my anxieties even when I don't realize I am so anxious.

On a regular day, if I get up, he gets up. I let him out to go potty, then I let him back in. He eats breakfast when I eat breakfast. Then he will follow me unless I tell him to lay down or I put him outside to wander on the farm.

If your dog is anxious or even suffering from allergies, make sure that you use a quality therapeutic oil.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: stress,anxiety — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
2.Associated topics: stress,anxiety — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: dogs — "Idiopathic vestibular syndrome is the most common cause of peripheral vestibular disease in dogs and, despite its dramatic clinical presentation, can improve without intervention."Link
4.Associated topics: anxiety — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
5.Associated topics: stress,anxiety — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
6.Associated topics: stress,anxiety — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
7.Associated topics: stress,anxiety,relaxation — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
8.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
