Flower Essences

Flower essences are a system of emotional healing that corrects emotional imbalances and releases negative beliefs causing behavioural and emotional issues including shyness, stress, anxiety and fearful responses; and have been used to heal the emotions for more than 3,000 years. 

Anxiety and stress can lead to physical illness in pets including diarrhoea, urinary tract infections, skin issues and behavioural problems. Reducing stress and anxiety in pets enables us to focus on healing the physical illness in your pet.


Flower essences work by unblocking emotions and returning an animals or persons emotional state back to a place of balance with the body and helping to prevent disease or illness developing.  As each emotion affects a different body part by dealing with the emotions flower essences help the body to heal itself. Flower essences do not heal illness, they are not medicine but they assist the body to heal itself.

Flower essences work well with behavioural and emotional problems especially when combined with positive reinforcement training and proper nutrition; and if required changes to the living environment.

As flower essences address specific emotional imbalances it is better to deal with one issue at a time for maximum effectiveness. It is important to note that flower essences do not change the inbred characteristics or personality traits of a breed,  that they are very safe and can be taken alone or in conjunction with traditional veterinarian medicine and herbal remedies.

A consult with Suppawtive Health Solutions will include:

  • An assessment of your pets emotional, physical and behavioural state

  • Where required a flower essence specific to your pets needs will be made by us for you to purchase

  • A followup assessment will be required to determine if the essence needs to be continued or adjusted for your pets individual needs. Once treatment for that issue is complete another underlying problem may present itself. If this occurs a new flower essence will be selected for your pet. 

Contact us to book a consultation.
