Just as with humans, the changes that come with old age in your dog can be debilitating and affect their quality of life. Cognitive and emotional symptoms can include confusion, anxiety, depression, difficulty in concentrating or focus, lack of energy, and lessoning of appetite.
We've designed the essential oils in our Senior Blend to address the cognitive and emotional deficits associated with the aging process. This unique blend can help your dog regain some of the mental functioning and emotional wellbeing they had in their younger stage of life, including increased alertness, higher energy levels, and increased appetite.
Essential Oils in the Senior Blend
Inhaling Rosemary can increase your memory by 75% according to a study by Robert Tisserand*. It is an uplifting oil and used to stimulate the mind and body. It may even improve cognitive performance and mood. It has also been known to ease symptoms of depression and reinvigorate the appetite.
Peppermint helps by stimulat- ing the mind and calming the nerves at the same time. It can help to boost energy level, increase motivation, and enhance focus.
Bergamot may be used to relieve anxiety, mild depression, and stress.
Black Pepper can helps with sorting out of confusion and disorientation. It’s extremely helpful with focus and motivation. A good example of this would be when a dog prefers sleep rather than explore a new scent.
