Herbal Flower Essences Have Been Known to Ground and Center Fearful Dogs
Flower essence therapy has been used for years to treat anxiety, stress and emotional imbalances in dogs that may ultimately contribute to physical disease. This healing modality works best as part of a holistic program that includes other healing therapies. We all use flower essence therapy in our household. When Murphy began showing symptoms of dementia, his 15 year old brother Niko became very anxious as I tried to figure out what was happening with Murphy. To this day, flower essence therapy helps to keep us all calm.
Here’s how flower essences are prepared
Many flower essences are prepared from fresh flowers that are soaked in sunlight and spring water. After several hours the flowers are removed and the essence is then preserved in alcohol. Most remedies have a shelf-life of up to three months if they are uncontaminated and kept away from computer and microwave radiation and ultraviolet light.
