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!

Front Bucket Seat Covers

Love, love love our front seat covers. Now Miss Maxie can ride in either of our vehicles. It’s a win win for all 3 of us ????????

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Perfect seat cover- just what I was looking for

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.
