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.


A first time mommy, my nearly five year old bitch whelped a VERY large puppy that was 6 inches long and skull size 1.5 inches at the ears. After three hours of hard contractions, the puppy was born at 3 am. She then whelped a 2nd good size pup, 5 inches long and skull was 1 and 3/8 inches. Pups 4 and 5 were delivered by 5 am.

Unfortunately she did not have enough milk. The puppies tried to nurse, and it hurt so she attacked and killed the first and second born. Very sad and tragic.

After consulting with a Healing Touch for Animals practitioner, we did a series of methods to go forward and try to help mother dog to nurse. She was probably confused. She may have thought the contractions and pain were punishment perhaps? Anyone's guess. She was in pain, and I had to firmly hold her to let 2 pups nurse.

Well, after trial and error, we rubbed the Peace & Calming oil blend on her gums to help relax her. I still had to hold her, but instead of being stiff as a board and shaking the whole time, the pups nursed. She did slowly relax as I soothed her and talked to her, and did some work on her chakras.

The mommy had to be kept away from them between feedings, and I am cleaning them, and keep them warm with a chicken hatching heat lamp. Not the perfect happy ending to this story, but at least she will relax using Peace & Calming on her gums.

I tried applying it in different ways, but this is what worked. Prior to it, I tried the Common Sense oil blend on her gums which helped make some progress during this first week of life for the two pups.

We now have two fat puppies.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: behavior — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: breastfeeding-/-milk-supply-/-nursing-/-lactation — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
3.Associated topics: birth-/-induction-/-labor-/-delivery — "The methods of aromatherapy were applied sitz bath or soap application using essential oils with Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, and Roman Chamomile.... [T]hese findings indicate that postpartum aromatherapy for perineal care could be effective in healing the perineum."Link
4.Associated topics: puppy-/-dog-/-canine — "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
5.Associated topics: behavior — "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
6.Associated topics: behavior — "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
7.Associated topics: behavior — "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
8.Associated topics: behavior — "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
