As well as providing natural solutions for health, beauty and wellbeing for us humans. I also love to help our four legged fury family members. So this blog is about how to care for your pets using dōTERRA®'s Essential Oils. In this blog I feature Serenity Calming Blend.
Serenity Calming Blend could be used to help you pets relax and overcome fears.
In an episode of Dog Whisperer, renowned dog behaviour expert Cesar Millan showed viewers how’s how he uses dōTERRA’s Serenity Calming Blend on an Australian Kelpie Cross, visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wYxcnrwOvw
And of course Serenity is good for us too….
Stress is a major contributor to illness and disease, in fact, it is estimated that more than 90% of all visits to health care professionals are related to stress. Serenity is a blend composed of individual oils with known calming properties which create a sense of wellbeing and relaxation. Lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood and vanilla bean create a subtle aroma ideal for aromatic diffusion or topical application. Applied to the bottom of the feet at bedtime, dōTERRA's Serenity is an excellent way to promote restful sleep. Added to a warm bath Serenity creates the perfect escape with its peaceful, renewing fragrance. For topical or aromatic use.
How Do Essential Oils Effect Pets?
We pet owners love our pets as part of the family and want to share the healing powers of the oils with them as well. We just need to remember that their bodies are built a little different than ours… here are some important tips to remember when caring for your four legged friends.
Dog’s and cats sense of smell is extremely sensitive. Do not apply the oils directly on or around your pets’s nose or eyes. What smells good to you may be very irritating to your pet, especially if they cannot escape the smell. Try the bottoms of the paws (between the pads) or the ear flap, back of the neck or their stomachs. Alternatively diffuse in a room they use most.
Be cautious about using stimulant-type oils with your pet if she is pregnant, ill or epileptic. Research your oil for possible side effects before you use it.
Always dilute your oils (use coconut, grape or olive oil) and start with the smallest dose possible (1 drop) until you know how your pet will react. Test the oil by holding the bottle out for them and see their reaction. Let your pet decide if they want the oil!
I will be feature more oils in future blogs.
