Rescue RemedyBecause Animals Have Emotions Too
The Bach Flower Remedies are 100% safe for animals
Animals have emotions too. They feel fear, anger, jealousy, depression, happiness and joy just like us.
The Bach Flower Remedies are able to help our animals when they have negative emotions. Just as they help us when we are emotionally out of balance.
The Bach flower Remedy most commonly used for pets is called Rescue Remedy. Unfortunately, we are not able to ask our pet why it acts depressed. However, we do know if our pet misses a friend or gets overly excited around new people. That is how we select the correct remedies for our animals. In addition to Rescue Remedy, there are other Bach Flower Remedies that, in combination, can address a number of emotional imbalances. Bach Flower Remedies work wonders for animals that are impatient, fearful, have been through a traumatic situation, have fear of thunder and fireworks or do not feel themselves. Look at the chart below. There, you will be able to find the correct remedy for your pets situation.
By looking at our pet’s environment and their personality we can determine which combination of these Bach Flower Remedies is best for your pet.
Directions on how to give the Bach Remedies to animals:
Rescue Remedy can be rubbed on the animals gum, ears or paws as needed. You can also add 2 drops to their drinking water.
To make a treatment bottle, get a 30ml/1oz mixing bottle and add 2 drops of each Remedy. You can combine up to 6 or 7 Remedies in a single treatment bottle.
As an optional preservative, you can add 1 tsp of vegetable glycerin. Then fill the bottle with water.
From this mixture give your pet 4 drops, 4 times a day until it feels better. You can also add 1 drop from each remedy to your pets drinking bowl, or rub a little on their paws or ears 4 times a day.
