Is Fido or Tigger driving you bonkers come bed time? This Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Relaxing Pet Spray can help them fall into a peaceful slumber come bedtime, and save your sanity in the process!
This spray is super easy to make. All you need is lavender essential oil, water, and a spray bottle! And, if you want to use it as a pet-odor eliminator, simply add a little bit of rubbing alcohol to the mix. Note: If you have a cat, take care to be cautious as to which oils you are using. Cats are averse to citrus and high-phenol essential oils. High-phenol oils include those like Wintergreen, Clove, and Tea Tree.
