Flower Essences for Your Pets (Part 1)

Thought you might enjoy reading part one of the script that Polly Fox from Pet Essences sent to Joy. Polly was suppose to be Joy's guest last Tuesday. Unfortunately, she had to cancel because she was feeling ill. Polly Fox is the founder of Pet Essences, one of the wonderful sponsors of the radio show.

Flower essences offer an ideal self-help strategy for those wishing to take greater responsibility for the health of the animals in their lives. Pet Essences® combine the energetic essence and effects of flowers in unique, user-friendly formulas which are designed to harmonize, nourish and enhance healing. Flower essences are on the cutting edge of energetic healing. Supporting the emotional balance that underlies true health, flower essences work on the vibrational level, where energy precedes physical manifestations of health. Flower essences are useful in restoring harmony and vitality in systems thrown out of order by disease conditions, life changes, emotional events, stress, accidents, or surgeries. They nourish and energize the body’s innate capacity to heal by facilitating ease and re-establishing balance. Think of Pet Essences® formulas as vibrational bouquets offering simple, effective support for maximum vitality in animals.

Animals are particularly responsive to the many forms of subtle energy that surround them, so flower essences, with their gentle vibrations, are extraordinarily effective with animals. Flower essences are safe and non-toxic, free of side effects, and economical. They are an ideal and easily accessible health resource for use with pets, working or companion animals, livestock, animals in daycare, refuge, shelter or emergency situations. Because they work on an energetic level rather than a chemical level in the body, flower essences have the capacity to facilitate shifts quickly. They are usually most effective when given in frequent small doses that reinforce the vibrational shifts and cellular communication that they offer.

Each ingredient in Pet Essences® formulas is a flower essence, in which the energetic pattern of a flower’s energy has been transferred to pure water by the sun. The essences are made in the flowering season of each plant, and always in the morning when the flower is most vibrant. Brandy is traditionally used to preserve the water in which the energetic pattern of the flower is stored, and gives the flower essence an indefinite shelf life.

Each Pet Essences® formula is a combination of flower essences chosen for both their resonance with each other and for the vibrational balance they collectively bring to the condition targeted by a particular formula. The flowers work together in tandem, creating an energetic bouquet with a combined resonance whose vibration addresses particular imbalances that may present as physical, emotional or other types of difficulties. Just as a symphony is comprised of various musicians whose instruments collectively create a beautifully resonant whole, the component flower essences in Pet Essences® formulas work synchronistically to create a balanced vibrational remedy for those situations they are designed to address.

Pet Essences® flower formulas are absolutely safe; there are no side effects. If you choose the incorrect essence, you may not get the results you were looking for, but you don’t need to worry about negative side effects. When you use the appropriate flower essence, however, changes begin to occur immediately. Cells identify the remedial vibration of the essence, recognize their mission, and begin their work of balancing and harmonizing the system. As in tuning a violin, there need be no change if the instrument is in tune in the first place and all is vibrating perfectly. Similarly, an animal’s body does not need adjusting unless its vibrational rate is lower than optimum, in which case the information systems of the body--the cells receiving the communication of the flower formula--see the need to raise their functioning level to optimum and begin to do so. In cases of debilitating disease, where cellular communication has begun to break down, flower formulas have the capacity to optimize the flow of energy and cellular communication, thereby supporting the return to resilient wellbeing.

How to use Flower Essences with your animals -

Polly Fox and her team at Energetic and Pet Essences are pioneers in the field of combining the energies of flowers in unique proprietary blends which address specific, easily identifiable situations that you as an animal caregiver and companion may face. Polly has taken the guesswork out of choosing a flower essence by naming the formulas to clearly indicate the specific situations in which they may be of help. She has named physical or emotional conditions, rather than individual flowers, to make it easier for you to choose an essence.
With the exception of those few notable formulas that DO combine well with any or all of the other Pet Essences® formulas, it is strongly recommended that all remedies are administered all one at a time. However, it is necessary to wait only a minute or two before giving another formula, as the vibrational effects happen instantly.

Pet Essences® are used by putting a few drops in the animal’s drinking water or food, on their skin, fur or feathers, in their mouth, water bottle, bowl, fish tank or stock tank, into their bath, or into a spray bottle with which you mist the environment or bedding. The object is to bring the essence as frequently as possible into contact with the animal’s body, both internally and externally. It is not critical which way you choose do this. Do whatever is easiest and works in your situation. It is also a good idea to leave drops of a flower essence in a water bowl the animal will go to over time, this way ensuring they get several doses throughout the day.


A dose is either a few drops from a “stock” (or “purchased”) bottle, or a few drops from the diluted contents of a “dose” bottle. A dose bottle is one that is holding several drops from the stock bottle, with pure water added to dilute. Although you can use the liquid essence directly out of the stock bottle purchased, making a dosage bottle of flower essences from your stock bottle is easy and extremely economical. Dilution of the brandy with pure water does not alter the power of the energetic pattern. Remember that the frequency of dosing is more important than the amount given at any single time. That means, the more frequently a dose is given the more often the energetic information is available to the animal. Here are some suggestions for making and using dose solutions: Put 4-7 drops from the stock bottle you have purchased into an empty, clean, 1 or 2 oz. bottle and fill with pure water. Label. Shake. Consider this the dose bottle. To use, take a few drops from the dose bottle and put them in food, drinking water, a bath or on an animal’s skin, fur, feathers, etc. or directly in the mouth or on the lips. Remember, energetic patterns will not be diluted with water; you will only be diluting the brandy.
