A safe and effective therapy for all animals at all stages of life
Animals have always been close friends to human beings and as our lives become more stressful, so do theirs. Our animals also experience many of the same emotions as us - such as anxiety and depression and flower essences are a safe and wonderfully effective treatment for such times.
I have been working professionally as a Flower Essence Consultant since 2003 and have been very blessed to meet many animals during this time who have taught me so much about how profoundly essences can benefit them.
Animals live in a rich sensory world. Dogs interpret their world through their sense of smell; a cat's sense of hearing is far superior to ours as they can hear sounds that we cannot on both ends of the spectrum - so it is natural that their feeling world is also enriched and full. But can you imagine how it feels to live in a busy, noisy world, often far away from your natural habitat and where you can hear, smell and feel everything so much more than the humans you live with? So to treat them at this feeling level has enormous healing potential for them. Flower essences have no contra-indications and can be safely taken by animals of all ages and who may also be taking medication from their vet or using other complementary therapies.
So when would you use flower essences with animals?
Here are some ideas:
~ Animals - e.g. from rescue shelters who have gone through much upheaval and trauma
~ Pets who are ill or who are about to have or are recovering from surgery
~ During stressful times in the home â€“ illness, moving, bereavement, divorce, separation due to holidays
~ For pets who are nearing the end of their lives and/or those that live with serious health issues
~ For grieving animals who have lost their carer or other members of their animal family
How do I give my pet flower essences?
It's very easy. Place 2-4 drops of essence in water or directly on to their food twice a day. In emergency situations a dose can be given as often as every few minutes. If essences cannot be given orally, they can also be stroked on to the animal's fur.
