From the manufacturer:
Diffuse using 1-2 drops per 100 mL of water for 5-10 minutes every few hours. Passive diffusion is also a great option. Try adding 1-2 drops to a cotton ball and tucking that cotton ball into your dog’s bed.
For topical application, dilute to 0.25-2% depending on your animal’s species and weight. Apply the diluted blend to the upper inner foreleg, chest, or back of the neck. For best results, apply the blend 5-10 minutes before your animal is exposed to the stressful situation to allow the effects to begin.
When using essential oils with dogs and horses it is important to create a positive association with the oil. You can do this by applying the oil to yourself for the first few days of usage. This will allow your animal to begin to associate the blend with his/her person. When you are ready to apply the blend to your animal or begin active diffusion you can reinforce the positive experience by doing something they love, like giving them their favorite treat or using a massage application before bedtime.
This blend is intended for use with dogs and horses only. Do not diffuse around or use this blend topically on cats, birds, reptiles, rodents, etc.
Confident K9 Linen Spray
What you’ll need:
- 18-36 drops of Confident K9
- 1.5 ounces of water

What you’ll do:
Measure out water and everclear in separate measuring cups. Mix essential oils into everclear and then add water in slowly. Pour into an empty spray bottle. Spray dog’s bed or horse’s linens lightly and allow to dry.
*Note: Everclear is used in this recipe to allow the essential oils to emulsify properly and to help with preservation. If you do not want to use everclear then an emulsifier and preservative would be necessary. Allow linens to dry before bedtime. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
