There is something amazing about the affect flower essences have on children and animals that defy the most enthusiastic fault-finder.
Critics believe that the benefits produced from the use of flower essences are actually as a result of the placebo effect, dispelling advice from practitioners extolling the virtues of their energetic healing and emotional wellbeing properties.
Skeptics feel that a person’s faith and positive mental attitude surrounding the use of flower essences, can create a shift in emotional wellbeing.
Flower essence practitioners however, believe that it is the energetic signature of the flower that creates the positive emotional change in a person. This is because each flower contains its own unique energy force.
The field is divided in their theories, with some practitioners believing that essences may act upon neurotransmitters in the brain and other practitioners believing that a flower essence's vibrational healing pattern mends imbalances in the human energy field.
Whilst the community is at loggerheads over their own conclusions, if you look closely at the medicinal use of flower essences which have been used for centuries, there is one very interesting factor that defies the critics and that is the effect that they have upon animals and infants.
They say never work with animals and children but in the case of flower essences and their use, they are the most laidback group to work with! Animals and children both have faster results and are more receptive to the benefits of flower essences. Flower essences are widely used not just within the canine fraternity but also with a variety of animals. They are used on horses and greyhounds to help calm them before races. Many people use flower essences on their pets in thunder storms and around holidays and events such as the 4th July, when they could become extremely excitable and skittish.
When working with animals, the faster uptake of the benefits of flower essences, may be due to their instincts and intuition and that is why so many holistic veterinarians treat animals extremely successfully with flower essences. The essences that they use are 100% natural and organic and safe for all animals in all conditions including pregnancy and medical ailments. Pets are sensitive to heat requiring more water and using essences in water helps them to stay hydrated.
Children accept the healing properties of flower essences more readily as they do not have the belief or faith in the outcome so the placebo effect does not come into play and they have less emotional complexities than adults.
Because they are colourless, tasteless and have no aroma, flower essences can be dispensed easily, by putting drops of the essence on or under the tongue, or into a bottle of water.
