~FLOWER ENERGY & PETS~
You can utilise the Energy of Flowers for your pets in similar ways that you do with yourself and other humans! You need to be careful of Botanical and Toxicity issues so please scroll down and read through the links I have provided.
Pets can benefit from Flower Essences to assist in regaining health, recovering from injury and for emotional support and they are excellent for behavioural issues.
Flower Energy Readings can be created just the same as you would for your human friends too and these can assist pinpoint the cause of an issues and provide keys for you to work out a plan to help your animal friend with guidance.
~FLOWER ESSENCES FOR PETS ~
PURCHASED FLOWER ESSENCES
These can be used as they are straight from the bottle. The amount of alcohol is very small and would not effect MOST dogs and cats. (you must be responsible for investigation this for your pet)
Do not use with Birds or Fish, check for other animals.
There are alcohol free essences on the market, check ingredients for compatibility
with your type of pet.
CREATING YOUR OWN
BASIC information for creating your own Essences can be found in the Books I have listed below or in an early post on My Blog here:
HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN FLOWER ESSENCE
When creating for animals, I would use Apple Cider Vinegar as a preservative fill your bottle 3/4 with purest water you can and 1/4 apple cider vinegar.
This is my video with a few tips on Administering Flower Essences to Dogs....
*OTHER ANIMALS: Please check the books below in the Resource list for in depth instruction on administering
Essences to other animals.
~FLOWER READING FOR PETS~
Can you REALLY read for your pet?
Yes you can!
I would suggest using Flower Oracle Cards or Images. not fresh flowers.
I will pop back to the forum at 9pm to share tonight!
~TOXIC PLANT & FLOWER CHECKLIST~
There are plants that are toxic to animals. Some may be fine with us humans, BUT toxic and even fatal to your pet. Check any plant first before you are using it near your pet for possible issues. When using Flower Essences this will not be a concern due to legible amount of plant material, if any at all, present in your preparations, either created by your or purchased.
When using certain plants around your pet to bring the fresh flower energy inyto their space,
ensure that they are NOT TOXIC in case your pet decides to chew or eat.
Don Burke has a great checklist here:
Poisonous Plants for Pets Factsheet
The ASPCA has a fantastic database here:
Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants
The RSPCA has one too:
