Our Pets and Animals - How Flower Essences Can Help


A wonderful question arrived in our inbox recently, ‘ Can First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® support our pets and other animals?'

The answer is a resounding ‘Yes!’

Animals are very responsive to First Light® flower essences.

You can actually work with the essences in the same way as you do with people and can use them to address different issues that animals may be experiencing such as anxiety, trauma, fear or bad habits.

How to Work with Animals and Flower Essences

1. Simply spend time observing the animal or have a heart to heart chat with their owner to understand what the problem or issue is.
2.  ‘Diagnose’ and select the ideal essences.
3. Add 2-3 drops of the essence into their bowl of water for them to sip throughout the day.     

How to Transform Negative Traits and Behaviours e.g. Shyness or A Fear

The First Light® Flower essences No's 1-36 will address personality traits in the animal, like over-excitement, shyness or a lack of ability to play with others.
For example, First Light® No 4 Marlborough Rock Daisy can help when an animal has a specific fear of a known thing. e.g. the vacuum cleaner.
If you know their date of birth, the animal's keynote flower essence is especially helpful too. 


How to Help Animals Recovering From Trauma or Mistreatment

The First Light® Tree essences No's 44-50 will assist with balancing their chakras, thereby balancing the behaviours and reactions of the animal to life situations, especially if the animal is exhibiting anxiety.

First Light® No 46 Totara, the ‘Inner Power’ essence can support animals who tend to be bullied or who bully others.




How to Support Animals with Anxiety

The First Light® Fern essences No's 37-43 can gently assist an animal to  recover from the trauma of past events such as mistreatment, injury or accidents.
First Light® No 37 King Fern, the ‘Security’ essence can aid an animal who has been a victim of abuse, or who has faced physical hardship, whilst First Light® No 40 Silver Fern the ‘Trust’ essence can support an animal who may be grieving the loss of a beloved companion.


How to Break Patterns or Old Habits

Patterns can be tough to shake but the First Light® Seed essences No's 51-62 can be helpful when the animal is demonstrating behaviours that have become habits or long standing patterns.

The seed essences can also address any inherited traits of behaviour or the underlying energetic root causes behind health issues which may have been inherited.

Soulful Support for Animals

The First Light® Plant essences No's 63-84 are called upon when the animal is needing help at a collective soul level.
