The Calming Effect of Chamomile

Chamomile is well-known for its calming properties, and it's just as effective for pets:

  • Anxiety Relief: Chamomile can help reduce anxiety and stress in pets. You can offer chamomile tea (cooled and diluted) or use chamomile essential oil (diluted) in a diffuser.
