Harmony blend for your pooch

Harmony Dog Diffuser/Roller Bottle Blend 

My dear friend Jeffrey Evans dog lover, and founder of  Angels with Misplaced Wings shared this blend  for calming and settling your anxious, aggressive or stressed-out pooch. It’s so effective I wanted to share with all of you!

Mix doTERRA’s whisper, lavender, serenity, and balance.

Diffuser blend mix 3 drops of each oil and diffuse in an open environment.

For a stronger effect mix 10 drops of each oil in a roller bottle then top off with fractionated coconut oil. Apply to bottoms of paws every 15 min till  your pooch has settled.

Pluto & Pepper tested Loved & Approved!
