Lavender oil is one of the more well known essential oils used in aromatherapy for calming tired nerves and helping you relax, but did you know it’s equally as effective when used on wired, high strung, panicky or frightened dogs? This essential oil is safe for use on dogs and can be put directly onto their fur and skin, typically on the bridge of their nose, nape of their neck, high on their chest, or somewhere they can smell it, but aren’t able to lick it right off.  You can also try putting a few drops of the oil onto their dog beds or in their dog crates to help them calm down and sleep better.
