Aromatherapy with Essential Oils
Essential Oils are a favorite and natural tool to help calm and lessen a dog’s anxiety. Veterinarians like Dr. Nancy Brandt, DVM, CUA, CVC and Barbara Fox, DVM, recommend using ONLY Young Living Essential Oils because of the high quality, therapeutic grade of the oils. We do not recommend that you use any other brand of oils on your pets.
Peace and Calming – helps to reduce nervousness, stress and anxiety. It promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace and emotional well-being.
Lavender – Calms and relaxes the nervous system.
Valor– Promotes self-esteem, courage, and confidence.
Stress Away – Brings feelings of peace and tranquility and supports the nervous system.
How To Use Essential Oils: Simply place a drop of the oil into your hands and pet onto your dog. Do not apply around nose, face, or inside ears. You may also diffuse the oils by placing 5-12 drops of the desired oil into a Young Living diffuser. You may also rub the oil on a surface such as a bed, blanket, pillow or even YOU!
We have all these oils in stock in the boutique at Rover Resort and we’re giving away free samples of Peace & Calming and Lavender on Thursday, June 29th and Friday, June 30th.
