  • Flower Essence Horse Case - Horse Finds Renewed Interest in Life
    for Dancer What did she hope the flower essences would do for him Marcia replied I want to help him to develop an interest in life again Dancer appeared to have a lack of interest in his surroundings He was living more outside of himself Marcia believed there was a part of him slipping away She also stated I want to bring light back into his eyes and improve his comfort mentally and physically The first day of the workshop we administered Oak to assist with rebuilding Dancer s inner strength This was administered by first misting Dancer s entire body and then massaging the essences into his gums Immediately after receiving the Oak he drank an entire bucket of water We then misted him with Wild Oat massaged this into his gums and waited about five minutes prior to misting him with Wild Rose After he received these two essences there was a noticeable change in his demeanor He became more responsive and accepting of the flower essence application We chose the Wild Oat because Dancer had a lack of energy The Wild Rose was intended to help him find joy in living again With both of these flower essences Dancer voluntarily sniffed our hands and allowed his gums to be massaged for a longer period of time How the Flower Essences were Administered The approach we took in administering flower essences to Dancer was as follows 1 We first showed the bottle of flower essences to Dancer and allowed him to investigate it 2 Once he seemed comfortable with the bottle we misted our hands and held our hands out for Dancer to sniff the essences Sometimes he licked our hands Other times we gently cupped the hand with essences over one nostril allowed him to breathe in the essences and then we d cover the other nostril and Dancer would breathe in the essences again He didn t show any signs of stress with this method 3 With the essences still on our hands we rubbed the remaining liquid on Dancer s head 4 When we misted his entire body we d mist the air around Dancer and away from him so the mist wouldn t spook him 5 A gentle mist would be sprayed over Dancer s body The misting would be done for about 5 10 minutes We d allow that essence to absorb into the energy field and then mist our hands and gently massage the flower essences into his gums Profound Effects of the Flower Essences I was amazed at the difference in Dancer s coat between the first and second day of the workshop By Day 2 his coat was shinier It actually appeared to have a beautiful purple velvet glow to it I discussed this with Marcia and we mutually agreed to continue using the Oak Wild Oat and Wild Rose The flower essences had a profound effect on Dancer during that weekend We were able to visually see Dancer respond

    brandy cider vegetable glycerin vinegar or spring water Dosage bottles made in vegetable glycerin have a sweet taste that many pets love Therefore it is often possible to rub the essence combination on the animal s gums or even place it directly under the tongue This is especially true with dogs and horses Cats however are not the easiest creatures to try and rub any substance on their gums Putting the drops in a misting bottle and spraying the air that the cat breathes is a popular alternative This is also the method of choice for owners of snakes iguanas turtles and other sundry reptilians It is also a nice alternative with birds Other methods reported with positive results are putting the drops on the pads of the paws putting the drops behind the ears of the animal putting the drops on the forehead of the pet Essences can be dropped into a pet s bath water or gently rubbed into the palms of one s hands then administered through petting the animal Animal caretakers have reported mixing flower essences into our Self Heal Creme or herbal oils and daubing it onto certain sensitive sore spots There are equine therapists

  • Consent
    in mind that while I can give a few guidelines the core responsibility lies with each practitioner in evaluating the particular circumstances of each case Animals and children or elderly persons or others who may not have full mental capacities under our care depend on us to make the best decisions for them Thus when we use flower essences for them we are doing so based upon an implicit relationship of caretaking which has already been established spiritually and physically On the other hand a fully capable independent adult who is able to communicate directly to us needs to be consulted and permission needs to be granted for any kind of healing we do This permission may be more general such as I trust you to select flower essences for me I don t need to know all the particulars I am willing to experience the results whatever they might be Obviously there are many gradations in the spectrum of seeking healing permission Many animal practitioners are able to communicate telepathically with animals under their care and do in fact feel that they gain permission and recognition of the flower essences being given and experienced With children we may not explain every detail on an intellectual basis but we might give an imaginative picture of the flower and its healing qualities Also there are many times to use flower essences on an emergency basis without formal consent For example many practitioners have used Five Flower Formula in rescue situations for both humans and animals who are unconscious or semi conscious with beneficial results Whether flower essences work better with conscious permission is an open research question There is good evidence to support that placebo applications of flower essences are very effective but again there has been a general consent of
