As you celebrate this 4th of July: take a few moments to prepare a calming environment for your pets. Fireworks can be very scary for our fur babies. They feel and hear it in a different vibration than we do, as their hearing is more sensitive than ours.
Here is a great list of helpful essential oils to diffuse or apply to your pets during fireworks
These are also helpful for loud storms or earthquakes (not that you can predict those...) But helpful to have on hand to help calm them.
Make sure the essential oils are diluted with a carrier oil (coconut, grapeseed, YL's V6, etc)
Animals, due to all their hair follicles, have an increased rate and amount of absorption, so I would use plenty of carrier oil when applying any oil.
Always start with small amount - you can add more if needed. Cats should have carrier oil dilution, around 8 drops of carrier oil to 1 drop of EO, and dogs under 25 pounds should have 5 drops of carrier oil to 1 drop of EO.
I find that it takes about 15-20 minutes to see the effects.
Leave the diffuser running for several hours to help keep them calm during a stressful time.
Peace & Calming is the oil I usually grab first for fireworks, car rides, thunderstorms, A great place to apply to dogs is on the outside of their ear flaps. You can also pet the top of their head, and rub down their spine.
Stress Away is helpful to diffuse in stressful situations.
T Away Animal Scents - formulated specifically for animals, its a great one to use topically to help alleviate emotional stress. Formulated specifically for animals, this essential oil blend can be applied topically or diffused to promote a balanced environment for your pets during times of tension.
Valor - diffuse or apply topically to promote feelings of bravery.
Lavender - always go for the lavender when there is need for calming! Diffuse or apply topically.
CBD Calm Roll On - Has been used by some dog owners to help minimize feelings of stress/anxiety. Roll some onto your hands, then pet your dog from the top of the head, down the spine and to the tip of the tail. Also rubbing on their ears if desired.
