The tiny little adrenal glands serve a vital role in your dog's endocrine system. They help to regulate metabolism, help the body cope with stress, control blood pressure, regulate cardiovascular function, produce hormones, regulate immune response, and suppress inflammatory reactions.
Unfortunately, we often don't think about the adrenal glands until there is a diagnosis of Cushing's Syndrome or Addison's Disease. While the adrenal glands do need support when disease is present, they also need support when your dog may be under stress.
Stress from a vet visit, a new house mate, allergies, surgery, separation anxiety, an ear infection, and many other circumstances are all times when the adrenal glands can benefit from support using pet safe essential oils.
Using AdrenoBalance™ once every 3-7 days while under stress or once a month to maintain support of the adrenal glands for a healthier heart brain, pancreas thyroid, and more!
Note: If your dog has adrenal disease AdrenoBalance™ will not magically cure them. That's just not how body systems work. It will however help to support adrenal balance and normal adrenal function.
How to use AdrenoBalance™:
AdrenoBalance™ has fractionated coconut oil so it should not be used in a diffuser.
You apply in one of the following ways:
How Much Should I Use?
Dogs that are sensitive or new to essential oils should start with 1-2 drops to start. You want to create a positive experience, and not overwhelm them - the added time to slowly build up concentrations of essential oil use can be worth it.
For dogs who have been diagnosed with Addison's Disease or Cushing's Disease - the situations can be a bit more critical - especially with Addison's. It is very important that you work with your veterinarian, and monitor your dog closely. Never neglect the use of veterinary diagnostics and traditional treatments when they are indicated, and make sure to tell your vet that you are using natural substances that help support adrenal health and function.

Fractionated Coconut Oil: A colorless and odorless oil that is perfect for blending with essential oils as it preserves and maintains their original fragrance and benefits. It is also able to be applied to dry or troubled skin providing a soothing topical barrier without clogging pores.
Nutmeg: Useful for stress reduction and extreme tiredness, nutmeg is known as a nerve tonic that supports the adrenal glands and the liver. While nutmeg does have anti-coagulant properties, the actions are typically only a concern when used as an undiluted single essential oil via oral route.
Rosemary ct vergenone: Aids in the support of many other vital body systems that influence the adrenals: cardiovascular, hepatic/gallbladder, and urologic. Rosemary has been referred to as an "endocrine equilibrant" - helping to support and allow the body to regulate the hypothalamus, pituitary, and sex glands - and is very helpful with general fatigue, glandular disorders, and general debility.
Lemon: Supportive to the immune system, normal white blood cell counts, aides in gentle cleansing, blood purification and detoxification, reduces anxiety and is a nervine relaxant. Lemon is generally regarded for kidney and urinary support. While lemon essential oil is photosensitizing, the concentration within AdrenoBalance™ is generally not at a level of concern. However, avoidance of full sun exposure to skin for 12 hours after application may be advisable, especially in hairless areas.
Black Spruce: Contributes to hormonal and cortisol balance. Is very helpful for fatigue and exhaustion and for use in conjunction with prescription steroids.
Balsam Fir: Supports the adrenal glands.
Juniper: Support the renal (kidney), pancreatic, and nervous systems.
Coriander seed: Beneficial to adrenals and supportive/protective of liver health.
Clove: A strong anti-oxidant, clove can help to reduce damage of every day life in the body. Although controversial due to high Eugenol content - Clove oil used in proper amounts is highly beneficial in supporting the body. Included in small amounts within this blend, Clove adds its benefits without worry. However, care should be taken with animals who are bleeding, have a tendency to bleed, or are on anti-coagulant therapy. The over-use of essential oil(s) that have anti-coagulant actions (such as Clove), especially in oral administration, can produce a temporary and dose dependent increase in bleeding and reduction of clotting. With proper dosing and usage, as described for AdrenoBalance™, no issues have been observed clinically.
Spikenard: Relief of nervous tension and immune system support.
Geranium: Liver and pancreas support, skin conditions, hormone balancing, and to stimulate the healthy output of the adrenocortical glands.
Ledum: Supports elevated liver enzymes - a common issue with hyper-adrenocorticism (Cushing's).
Clary Sage: Supports hormone balancing.
Basil ct linalool: Support recovery from fatigue and weakness of the adrenal cortex.
Sandalwood: Supportive to the lymph and venious systems. It also helps with nervous tension.
Dill: A very safe oil that supports normal blood sugar levels and liver function.
For all animals, how often you apply an essential oil blend will be based on your situation.
During a time of high stress, you can safely apply AdrenoBalance™ every 3-7 days.
During maintenance apply once a month.
