FLOWER ESSENCE FOR PETS
Flower essence therapy for pets works on a similar mechanism as homeopathy. Parts of the flower are diluted and then extracted to become effective. The flower essences are found in liquid form. Thus, the remedies work on an energetic level, similar to homeopathy, acupuncture and Reiki.
Flower essences work to heal both physical, mental and emotional illness. Therefore, flower essences restore the inner balance by working on the vital force. The vital force is an inner force within the body that governs our strength and well-being. As we get sick our vital force weakens and therefore, the flower essences work on our vital force to strengthen it. The particles of the essences work in specific patterns. This means that certain essences cure certain illnesses. Overall, flower essence are said to release negative emotions and help, heal, and calm. They can be functional either internally or externally. Flower essence are non toxic, have no side effects on, people, children and animals of all sizes.
