How Pet Remedy works...

Pet Remedy is a natural product which helps calm pets that are experiencing stress or anxiety.

The formulation contains Valerian oil (from Eastern Europe), with small inclusions of Vetiver (from Indonesia), Sweet Basil (from Europe) and

Clary Sage (from France).


Many pets like cats, dogs, small mammals, birds and horses are able to detect environmental scents at levels much lower than humans. They have highly developed olfactory systems and respond to these scents, which can help them become less focused on other stressful events. The living environment of pets largely determines their quality of life and the importance of environmental scents is recognized as a key factor in helping anxious or stressed pets feel happier and calmer.

Pet Remedy works by providing a highly attractive environmental scent for pets, helping distract them from environmental stress. In times of stress or anxiety our pets can get over stimulated, which leads on to the many different signs of stress we see in them. The special Valerian based formulation contains a number of constituents that animals are attracted to. This scent works to distract the animal from surrounding stressors or difficult environmental conditions, allowing them to feel calm and maintain normal composure.

Pet Remedy is a low concentration formulation and the diffuser delivers a constant slow release, which is very kind and gentle in its effect on the animal. The Pet Remedy sprays and wipes are also very gentle with their effect and both are water based.

  Valerian absolute oil


  • Valerian is a perennial herb with short rhizomes, aromatic feathery leaves and clusters of small pink or white flowers. There are over 260 different species of Valerian worldwide but only a few have the attractive calming properties and we obtain optimum results for Pet Remedy from Valeriana Officinalis. This species is native to Europe, North America, and the northern part of Asia.

  • Valerian absolute oil is obtained by cold extraction from the rhizomes of the plant, Valeriana Officinalis, and has been used as an attractant for many species of animals.

  • We source our absolute oil from Europe where our valerian plants are grown organically using only pig manure as fertilizer.

  Other essential oils used in the Pet Remedy formulation


  • Vetiver, Sweet Basil and Clary Sage are included and give a faint pleasant aroma to the formulation.

  • Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides) is a tough, aromatic grass and the essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the roots of this grass which belongs to the same botanical family as lemongrass, citronella and palmarosa. It is extracted from the washed, chopped, dried and soaked roots and rootlets by steam distillation. The aroma is earthy and we source Vetiver from Haiti and Java.

  • Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is an aromatic herb with lush green leaves. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the leaves and the flowering tops. It is commonly used in aromatherapy and we source Sweet Basil from Europe and Egypt.

  • Clary Sage (Salvia Sclaria) is a biennial herb, native to the Mediterranean and parts of Europe. Clary Sage essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the buds and leaves. We source our Clary Sage essential oil from France.
