DIY Homemade Dog Calming Mist

By ChelseaEvans. | Dog Health Dog Info

If you know me and my fur kids, you know Abbie has some serious anxiety issues, ESPECIALLY when meeting new dogs. That’s why we’ve created a calming mist for her before we head out to dog parks, influencer appearances, and for long car rides.

This blend is SUPER easy and quick to make and you can just throw it in your purse if you’re an on-the-go gal! Nice thing about this DIY is that you can use it on yourself if you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or need a little help falling asleep at night. It’s a win for everyone!


  • 16-ounce spray bottle


  • Distilled water
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Roman Chamomile essential oil
  • Rosemary essential oil 


  • Add 10 drops of each essential oil to your 16-ounce spray bottle, then fill up with distilled water.
  • Shake before each use and spray around your pup! It’s seriously that easy!


Do not spray near eyes! That means don’t spray in your or your dog’s face!

Tip 1:

Spray on your hands and give your pup a nice ear rub or body massage to work the blend into their system.

Tip 2:

We only use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils from DoTERRA. After doing extensive research and testing out different brands/companies, I’ve found they are the most effective and safe

Now you can go enjoy a nice, relaxing day with your chill pup! Let us know how it goes by posting pictures and tagging Gal’s Best Friend on social media!

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

This is my 2nd seat cover from 4knines and love them both. The product and service were both fantastic.


Repeat customer VERY satisfied.

We have made several purchases from 4Knines and are VERY satisfied with products (cargo liner, back seat cover, bucket front seat cover...). I volunteer at a shelter and take dogs offsite daily. Always a Pleasure doing business with 4Knines. Highly recommend.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.

New truck seat cover and side panels

I really do like the seat cover and door side panels. The side panels are a must as the Beagle mix puts her feet on the doors. Every now and again someone comes up with a nice product that works well, has quality in its materials, and is well engineered. These are those. I am super satisfied.

Easy and fast install. Stays in great!! (and the dogs are happy that they get to ride along again!) :)

Great fit, Great look, Stays in Place

I really like the look of this cover on my front bucket seat. You can't tell it's to protect the seat from the dog! It's very nice looking and fits great. Most importantly, it stays in place! My dog is wiggly, up and down, looking out the windows; and this seat cover doesn't mind. Do make sure you watch the video and carefully follow the installation instructions. I did not at first; and Support was Wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing incorrectly.
