Birds & Exotics: Typically Clear Sailing is diffused in a water-based diffuser.
Cats: Clear Sailing is generally recommended to be used for cats with water-based diffusion.
Dogs: Dogs also benefit greatly from the water-based diffusion of Clear Sailing. Ease from anxiety, dog introductions, calmer natures, benefits during training, and more can be seen with diffusion. For most dogs, this is the preferred exposure to Clear Sailing, and is generally used first. Then, if more intense exposure to the oil is needed, we can move towards Petting applications.
Removable collar diffusers are also a wonderful way to use Clear Sailing. In the near future we'll have more reports of the animalEO oils being used in training classes - and hopefully also have the wonderful Sniff-Its available as well! I love the design of these easy to use Sniff-Its by Blue Sky Prairie Textiles, and Ripper is loving his as well! Often times my "tough and tumble" dogs break various doggy diffusers, or we have to remove the collar to service the diffuser. This design is made from all natural fibers, and velcros around the collar. It is easy to take on and off, and we can use it when we want or need the dog to "Sniff-It" and remove it quick and easily when the moment has passed! I have never liked forcing dogs or any animal to smell an essential oil if they do not enjoy it.
Horses & Large Animals: For these animals, often the Clear Sailing is used with Petting Techniques right out of the bottle. 5-10 drops are placed into your hands, they are rubbed together until a moderate film of Clear Sailing remains. Then, pet over the heart and chest area, or other desired location.
Clear Sailing is a blend designed for a uplifting, yet calming and relaxing result. The blend is perfect for diffusion in a water-based diffuser - and 3-5 drops in an H2EO diffuser is often perfect - however some people will find that they prefer it stronger.
