Similar to homeopathic remedies in that the amount of plant or flower used is quite a low dose, Flower Essences also have remarkable results and are quite gentle medicines. These are also used to treat both animals and people, and frequently are very helpful in treating for emotional illness, pain or struggle with loss. The basic concept, as in many modalities of Holistic Medicine, is that the body has a basic balanced state in which it ideally dwells. Tweaking the system with subtle energetic medicines such as homeopathics and flower essences help re-establish the balance and bring the body back to a place where it can again heal itself. Flower Essences are excellent for help with behavior problems in animals who are fearful, aggressive, unable to make a change to better behavior, house-soiling, or grieving for a lost companion.
