Flower remedies for pets based on the principles of Edward Bach
In our modern day society we have come to appreciate that humans are not the only ones who can benefit from the emotional support provided by flower remedies. These healthcare products can also be used as a natural, gentle solution for animals’ emotional and behavioural problems.
Animals can also experience the same range of emotions as humans - fear, rage, sadness, anxiety, jealousy and a myriad of other feelings can affect their well being. Animal Essences can help by promoting calm, well-adjusted, balanced behaviour.
This range of Animal Essences, based on Bach Flower Remedies, is made to the same principles as the Flower Essences for human use. As animals can’t explain to us exactly how they are feeling, more flower essences are used in each combination to cover the possible factors affecting the animal’s behaviour.
Animal Essences are not intended as a substitute for correct veterinary care. If there is any doubt about your pet’s condition, please seek professional advice.
How to Use
Animal Essences can be added to food, treats or water. For birds, Animal Essences can be put into a spray mist bottle and sprayed onto the feathers. Animal Essences should not be given to fish, reptiles or newborn animals.
Apart from Emergency Essence, it is recommended that only one combination flower remedy is used at a time.

particularly distressing event e.g. travel, fireworks, vet or farrier
visits, horse shows, re-homing or loss of owner or animal friend.This
fast acting remedy can help to calm and provide relief for the animal.
