Bonfire night is great fun for humans but it can be a very distressing evening for dogs and cats. Essential oils can help to keep them calm. Click to learn more.

Fireworks displays seem to be increasingly popular. Always a popular event for families, it's worth remembering that your pet probably won't enjoy it quite as much. Dogs and cats can be very upset by the bangs and whistles and this can cause problems for the owners (and neighbours!) too.

Try this simple all natural solution to help keep your pets a little calmer and less stressed while the fireworks are going off. Both oils are perfectly safe to use and your pets will benefit from the calming aroma in the same way as we humans do. The soothing properties enter through the nose and get to work directly on the part of the brain that deals with emotions and feelings. 

Add the following to your burner or vaporiser or add to warm water in a saucer suspended over a tealight candle. Make sure it's placed somewhere well out of reach of the animals. 

1 drop Lavender – calming and soothing.

3 drops Chamomile Roman – relaxing and a great stress reliever.
