How It Works
The unique Pet Remedy blend of essential oils and extract helps calm the nerves of anxious or stressed pets. It works by enhancing the production of GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), a natural chemical produced by the brain, transmitted from nerve to nerve as a calming message when the body is stressed.
- Works for all mammals and birds
- Starts to help within minutes
- Helps calm pet without sedating
- Helps stressed pet become more attentive and receptive
- Diffuser bottle will last up to 8 weeks
- Water based and PH neutral calming spray effect will last for at least 2 hours and often up to 6 hours (dependent on the individual pet).
Many Valerian preparations are too potent and can sedate rather than calm. Pet Remedy is a low concentration valerian blend and the diffuser delivers a constant slow release, which is very kind and gentle in its effect on the metabolism.
Also in the Pet Remedy blend is a small inclusion of Vetiver essential oil (from Indonesia), and even tinier inclusions of basil and sage essential oils (from France).
Effectiveness of valerian
Valerian absolute oil is obtained by cold extraction from the root of the plant Valeriana Officinalis, and has been used for centuries as an effective and safe calming agent.
We constantly strive to source the highest quality natural essential oils and extracts to create our Pet Remedy formulation . We are now sourcing our Valerian oil from Europe rather than China and the darker colour is simply due to an improved oil extraction technique.
Obtaining the Valerian oil by cold extraction ensures all the beneficial natural chemicals from the Valerian roots are retained and gives a more consistent oil compared to extraction by traditional steam distillation which can damage some of these elements.
A further bonus is that the European Valerian oil is more floral in odour than the Chinese source.
You will find the wick of the diffuser bottle now rapidly darkens too when the plug diffuser is in use.
Pet Remedy has been developed and is made in England.
