Is your pet feeling hyperactive, restless, or distressed? Valerian essential oil has been used for thousands of years to promote a sense of spiritual and emotional well-being, and this can work for your pet as well. Valerian is known to reduce mental distress and improve sleep quality.
Valerian essential oil has a strong, woody, earthy, and unusual aroma.
Valerian essential oil helps alleviate your pet’s symptoms of emotional distress and restlessness, as well as irritability. It is also great to help your pet deal with separation anxiety and anxiety induced by loud and noisy situations.
Valerian can be used to encourage a more restful sleep for your pet when they need a little help.
Dilute and Apply Topically
Add 2-3 drops of the essential oil to 3 tablespoons of a suitable carrier oil, such as our Jojoba or Sunflower carrier oil, and gently rub it on your pet’s skin. Always consult your veterinarian before topical use of essential oils on your pet. Then, be sure to perform a patch test and wait 15 minutes to observe if your pet has any reactions to the oil before using liberally.
Alternatively, you can also add a few drops to a water-based diffuser in the room where your pet is. Do not use the oil in excessive amounts. Remember, a little will go a long way for your pet. Also, be mindful of your pet and provide them with the option of exiting the room should they feel they disagree with the scent.
