, says. “Fortunately, the veterinarian prescribed puppy sedatives to use during especially long drives and airplane rides. Now everyone can have a lovely and restful trip.”
Few things are more trying than dealing with a stressed-out pet. Whether they’re anxious because of a car ride, fireworks and loud thunderstorms, or being left alone during the workday, keeping your cat or dog calm and cool during tense times is key to maintaining both of your sanities.

Anxiety can even result in destructive behaviors like digging, scratching, and even result in a pet running away from home. But what to do when stressful situations arise and you don’t have time for a quick trip to the vet? “I love CBD oil for my puppies to keep them mellow and calm,” says Jenni Kayne.

Lavender is a favorite among gardeners and herbalists alike. It's a gorgeous, fragrant plant that will add height without fuss to almost any garden. At Chesterhaven Beach Farm, we've planted well over a thousand lavender plants over the last five years. Some plantings have been more successful than others, but they are always beautiful.
Lavender Sleep Spray
At harvest, we cut the lavender stems at the base — it's the best way to cut lavender. Then we hang the clippings in a dark, air-conditioned room and allow them to dry. Once the lavender is dry, we remove the bud from the stem by hand, and package it in an airtight freezer bag and freeze for future use. Our harvests are so large, we find we must invent new ways to use lavender. We love adding them to as many of our products as possible, but also have found refreshing ways to use lavender around the house.
Below is a simple recipe for making a lavender tonic. You can use this spray as a facial or body toner or as an aromatic spray on your pillows, sheets, and blankets. The scent is relaxing to the mind and soothing on the skin.
Next, make the tonic — put witch hazel or vodka into your jar or bottle and add the essential oil. Then, when the lavender tea is cool, strain it into the bottle. Place the cap on and shake well to blend the ingredients.
