What the essential oils in Comfort Blend can do for your anxious dog.

October 15th, 2020

Each ingredient found inside Comfort Blend was handpicked by me to give your dog a little something extra to keep calm. These 100% genuine essential oils and aim to relax your dog as well as strengthen his nervous system.

Every drop of Comfort Blend holds:

Petitgrain essential oil.

Petitgrain essential oil is distilled from the leaves of the bitter orange tree – an evergreen tree with very fragrant flowers and native to southern China. Pale-yellow or amber in colour, it has a very pleasant sweet, floral aroma. Petitgrain essential oil is an antidepressant, a deodorant and a sedative and has a stabilizing effect on the nervous system. It’s uplifting, relaxing and great for nervous exhaustion.

Basil essential oil.

There are many varieties of Basil and each of them produces their own unique essential oil. The essential oil obtained from Sweet Basil, also known as European or Common Basil (Ocimum basilicum), is generally regarded as safe because of its chemical composition.

Basil essential oils are distilled from the leaves and flowers of Sweet Basil. In the Middle Ages, Basil was recommended for melancholy and depression and in the 16th century, in fact, herbalist John Gerad actually wrote: “The smell of basil… taketh away sorrowfulness and maketh a man merry and glad (Tisserand, R. The art of aromatherapy, 1979”).

Basil is also used as an antiseptic, an antispasmodic and a nervine and is considered to be one of the finest remedies for the brain and cephalic by many well-known and reputable aromatherapists. It’s relaxing, it clears the head, relieves intellectual fatigue and is uplifting and stimulating.

Neroli essential oil.

Neroli, a pale-yellow, light and refreshing oil with a powerful aroma is obtained from the freshly picked flowers of the bitter orange tree. This oil is often difficult to obtain and is therefore expensive. Known for its antidepressant, antiseptic, deodorant and bactericidal properties, it’s also nervine, meaning it strengthens nerves and the nervous system.

Neroli is one of the most effective sedative and antidepressant oils and is recommended for insomnia, anxiety and depression. P. Holmes mentioned in the International Journal of Aromatherapy, that, “Neroli relaxes the nerves and uplifts the spirits.”

Ylang Ylang essential oil.

Also known as Cananga oil, Ylang Ylang is obtained through distillation of the freshly picked flowers from the evergreen Cananga odorata tree. It’s a pale-yellow essential oil with a very powerful sweet aroma and is used as an antidepressant, antiseptic and sedative.

Ylang Ylang has the ability to slow down a rapid heartbeat and rapid breathing which are the symptoms usually associated with anxiety, anger and even shock, thereby creating the feeling of peace and banishing anger.
