Calm Canine Essential Oil Blend

Here is an ideal blend of essential oils to calm dogs in stressful situations: dogs with separation anxiety; training or show nerves; hyperactivity; fear of people, places, or things. Just hold this blend to their noses.

Calm Canine Essential Oil Blend
˝ oz. base oil (for example, sweet almond or hazelnut)
3 drops Valerian essential oil
2 drops Vetiver essential oil
4 drops Petigrain essential oil
3 drops Sweet Marjoram essential oil
2 drops Sweet Orange essential oil

Store in a dark glass bottle. The calming effect of this blend will range from “taking the edge off” to soothing a dog to the point where it gets very mellow and takes a nap. You can adjust the number of drops used to get the desired effect, anywhere from 1-6 drops depending on the size of the dog.

I would be extremely careful using essential oils with animals, especially cats as they are mostly dangerous to felines, only do so with the supervision of a trained professional.

Valerian are chemically related to hops. These can have adverse hormonal effects upon males of any species.
