    Valerian essential oil is renowned for its wonderful balancing, soothing and relaxing properties for both the mind and body. It has a pungent and earthy natural aroma and is most commonly used to help to encourage sleep. This oil is steam distilled from the dried roots of the Valerian plant.

    Why have we chosen this fragrance combination?
    A new study conducted by a team of British researchers decided to study whether essential oils could reduce stress and improve the welfare of dogs in shelters. They concluded that exposure to the odours of vanilla, coconut, valerian, and ginger has the potential to reduce stress in shelter dogs. The odours proved to have significant positive effects on stress indicators in the dogs. vanilla, coconut, valerian, ginger essential oils applied to dog toys led to lower levels of vocalizing (such as barking, growling, or whining) as well as less time spent pacing or moving during exposure to the oils, and more time resting. During exposure to the coconut and ginger samples, the dogs spent an increased amount of time sleeping. (By board-certified veterinary behaviourists)

    Conduct your own experiment!

    - Apply directly to your dog’s bedding or a comforting toy for them to sniff during stressful times.

    - The ear touch is one of the most important things you can do for your dog. There are many acupuncture points and nerves in the ear, which when stimulated extend to their internal organs and release endorphins, combined with our spray this will heighten the sensation for your dog. The ear touch is particularly important in cases of emergency and shock. This touch helps induce relaxation and send relaxing impulses through their bodies giving a natural high whilst improving digestion, fatigue and car sickness.

    Leather Care

    Looking after your leather dog collar is as important as caring for a belt, wallet or bag. Overtime, you may start to see structural or colour changes that could be weakening the leather. Changes are only cosmetic, we might recommend 'Collonil Waterstop Spray' protects against dirt, dust and moisture; With UV protection, reduces the bleaching of the colours.

    - Leather collars are strong but not water friendly!
    - As a natural product it will change colour over time If your dog goes swimming or walking in wet weather regularly
    - The natural oils and grease from your dogs skin will affect the colour and finish of the leather over time
    - Continuous wear (like a belt of bag)
    - Exposure to the elements & sunlight (may darken the leather)
