Essential Oil Stress Away: To Alleviate Stress and Anxiety on Alpacas and other Ruminants
Stressful and anxious situations for alpacas and other ruminants can cause several health challenges. It is important to create an environment as stress-free as possible to prevent injuries to yourself and to your animals. Because of the stoic behavior of alpacas and other ruminants, recognizing that they do not show stress can also create anxiety and tension within the body of the animal not noticeable with the naked eye. Using specific essential oils can be a viable application to help calm your animals. I have found that using a blend called “Stress Away” can alleviate ongoing stress amongst the herd during those anxious moments.
Stress Away essential oil blend contains a unique combination of Lime essential oil and Vanilla extract. It’s the distinct mix of Vanilla and Lime that gives the Stress Away its unique and pleasant aroma, among other benefits. Stress Away also included Copaiba, which has a history of beneficial properties in topical application; Lavender, with its refreshing and calming scent; and Cedarwood, which features the powerful plant constituent cedrol. These ingredients are expertly blended with the exotic scent of Ocotea, a unique Ecuador-sourced essential oil.
Applications for Stress away oil
An amazing use of the essential oil blend “Stress Away” is during monthly heard health. It has been noted that when animals smell the essential oil blend on your arm or by applying a drop in the palm of your hand and then rubbing your hand on the nose of the animal, this application method can create a quick calming effect to redirect the negative or stressful thought of the animal to a more peaceful stature.
Another way to administer the EO Stress Away is to have several cold air diffusers with several drops(10-12) of oil in the diffuser. The diffuser can permeate into the air for several square feet of a barn or shelter, reaching your animal’s sense of smell. Because of the potency of the essential oil and the ability of the diffuser to work for several hours, this application will help administer to several animals that need to have long term procedures like shearing, birthing, breeding, or medical attention.
When traveling or trailering your animals, applying Stress Away to the animals feed or apply several drops on the floorboard of the vehicle can help alleviate the stress of transporting. It is noted that using essential oils during a competition may be frowned upon. Conferring with the rules of the event for more information may need to be addressed. Using EOs also has a calming effect for breeders and ranchers to help reduce nervousness when they are in an exciting but nerve-racking situation, so sharing Stress Away is greatly advised for both you and your animals!
In conclusion: Keeping your animals stress free is another tool in your toolbox to help keep your animals immune and nervous systems stress free and at the optimum levels that are needed for better health of your herd.
Always use pure therapeutic essential oils to prevent chemical additives or substandard distillation that may harm your animals.
