Matricaria recutita (German Chamomile) is used medicinally against sore stomach, irritable bowel syndrome, and as a gentle sleep aid.
Folk medicine cites chamomile for speeding wound healing in animals, a benefit in diabetes, and some reports even cite its use against cancer. Chamomile is an old-fashioned but extremely efficacious remedy for hysterical and nervous affections. It has a soothing, sedative, and absolutely harmless effect.
Nepeta cataria (Catnip) While the smell produces a harmless high for felines, consuming the extract is beneficial for felines, canines, and humans. It relieves gas, calms spasms and quiets excitable nerves.
Catnip contains considerable quantities of vitamins C and E, both excellent antioxidants. The primary phytochemicals, nepetalactone isomers, are mild sedatives, somewhat like the active ingredients in valerian.
Catnip, is a potent sleep-inducer for animals and humans.
Catnip teas have long been used in traditional herbal medicine to quell digestive disturbances.
Catnip tea was the most commonly consumed herbal beverage in Europe prior to the importation of teas from the orient.
Scutellaria lateriflora (Skullcap) is an herb from the mint family. It is nervine, anti-inflammatory, and anti-spasmodic herb that relaxes the twitches and spasms related to some kinds of treatment-resistant diarrhea, and calms nervous fears, such as fear of car riding, fear of vets, and any unnatural fear.
Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice)
is known as The Great Harmonizer because of its ability to make all
other herbs work more effectively. Licorice is the second most prescribed herb in
China, where it is suggested for treatment of the spleen, liver and kidney. Rhizomes
in Licorice have a high mucilage content which, when mixed with water or used in
cough drops, soothes irritated mucous membranes. Today, herbal preparations containing
Licorice Root are used to treat stomach and intestinal ulcers, lower acid levels
and coat the stomach wall with a protective gel.

"I purchased these drops and use them for my 20yr old cat,Prince. He is a white Angora and seems to get nervous at night time. They seem to calm him down. I don't have to use them all the time but when he's having a spell, I put five drops in his food and mix them in and then he'll sleep without crying in the middle of the night.
"Stephen, thanks so much! Dawn is sleeping next to her brother now looking quite calm. i am sooooo glad to hear that the Chamomile in the Soothing Solution will help heal her GI tract as she has a rough go of it. I will order the enzymes and wait and see what happens. The luxolite I have used on other kitties when I feel they need stabilazation. I like the idea and they always seem to feel better in a short time. I have attached a picture of Dawn sleeping with Simeon.
"Hey Steven- just wanted to let you know I used your calming drops yesterday. My akita was so anxious- I thought she was going to destroy her crate. Lots of barking, chewing - not usual for her. She bent the door open in efforts to get out. I gave her the drops & within 10 minutes she was fine! Thanks for a great product."
