Pet tip #1: If you have pets like me, you don’t even need a weather app to tell you when rain is coming. My baby ShihTzu, Riley, will snuggle a little closer, her body shakes a little, and every little noise sets her on edge. And this is before the thunder starts. So to calm her little body, I put 1 drop of lavender essential oil in my hand and rub her tiny paw. Within minutes, she is resting comfortably. I love that!
