These are some of the common issues to which animals respond with flower essences:
Animals often respond even more quickly than people to flower essences, as countless pet testimonials worldwide have confirmed. These 20 remedies — prepared from fruit and vegetable blossoms — activate your pet’s ability to live a more balanced life. Addressing specific behaviors and situations rather than treating physical symptoms, flower essences allow animals to return to their natural state of harmony. Given singly, results will be noticed within 3 days, oftentimes immediately.
Using any of the following methods for a total of 4 times a day is the recommended minimum, preferably not with meals (10 minutes before or 1 hour afterward); or every few minutes in emergency situations. Add 4 drops of Stock Concentrate to a fresh water bowl, or 16 Stock drops to a watering trough. In addition, you may apply several drops to your palm and rub them into your pet’s fur, feathers or scales. Some animals like the essences rubbed on their gums, around their nostrils, behind their ears or on their paw pads. Four drops added to water in a misting bottle to spray bedding, stalls, kennels, cars or carriers is also effective. (To prepare a Dosage Bottle, add 2 Stock drops to a 1-oz. dark bottle, 1 T brandy, and spring water. Use as above, 4 drops at a time.) Store out of direct sunlight, heat and humidity.
Please note: It is advisable for the pet owner to honestly assess if he is contributing to his pet’s problem. For example, giving Grape Essence, for loneliness, to a neglected animal will not replace proper care from the owner. Also, flower essences, though a form of holistic pet health care, do not replace proper veterinary treatment.
