    • How our Herbs work in the Cozy-Up Cusihon


      Valerian has been used for centuries to alleviate insomnia, stress, and anxiety. It inhibits the breakdown of GABA in the brain resulting in feelings of tranquillity and calmness. It contains hesperidin and linarin which have a sedative action. It helps regulate excessive activity in the fear centre of the brain and reduces strong stress reactions.



      Lavender is most known for its calming properties. Renowned as the Queen of Calm, it relieves anxiety, helps your dog sleep and lifts their mood. It is one of the gentlest oils around, a natural sedative, calming and soothing the nerves, easing depression and promoting deeper and more restful sleep. 

      It’s calming sedative-like effects were confirmed in a 2006 study with dogs who had a history of car ride anxiety which found that they spent significantly more time resting and sitting and less time moving and vocalizing when exposed to the scent. Another study on diffusing lavender in a dog shelter showed similar results.
