Lavender is one of the few essential oils that we recommend to diffuse in your home. Using a lavender essential oil can help you to reign in your emotions, and it can help do the same for your dog!
There was an amazing article written on the Dog Cancer Blog on Dog Cancer Caregiver Stress and how to provide comfort to others, as well as yourself, that you may find beneficial. You can read it here.
Also, in Chapter 2 of the Dog Cancer Survival Guide, Dr. Dressler writes that managing your emotions is mission-critical when it comes to caring and creating a treatment plan for your dog with cancer. So, take the time that you need to take care of yourself 🙂
If we are unable to handle our emotions, this stress can transfer to our dogs. According to Dr. Dressler, if a dog is stressed or depressed, they aren’t as easy to heal as a dog who is calm. If you have any concerns about using a lavender essential oil, please consult with your veterinarian or holistic vet 🙂
We hope this lavender oil helps both you and your dog! 🙂
