Essences for Animals

Essences for Animals

There are a lot of essences produced around the world.

The most commonly known essences are made from flowers. Newer ranges make essences from gems, environmental features and many other things now.

They are different from herbs and herbal tinctures in that there is none of the original substance in the essence, which makes them comparatively safe to experiment with. There is some alcohol in them often as a preservative so adding a drop to a bowl of water would dilute that massively if it is of concern to you.

They can be applied to the coat or the animal can self-select it and ingest it in water or neat.


Flower Essences for animals

Bach Flower Essences

There are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system. All of them were discovered in the 1920s and 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician, and pathologist.

Each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion. Mimulus, for example, is for when we are anxious or afraid about something specific. Taking the remedy helps us overcome our fear and face it with courage.

The remedies are in liquid form so that you can mix together the remedies you need to to help balance your current emotional situation. Like Dr. Bach, we believe that healing on an emotional level has knock-on effects on other levels. A healthy emotional life and a balanced personality will allow your body to find its own natural state of health.

Rescue remedy is a combination remedy that is well worth having in your first aid kit to administer at times of extreme anxiety or shock.
