flower essences

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just bought some Cat Faeries Flower Essences. I haven't even really used it on my cat yet, but am wondering if I've been had! The ingredients on the bottle say that it's 50% water and 50% Brandy! The informational insert says "a Flower essence is the vibration or energy of a flower imprinted in water." Can someone explain to me what the heck that means? The water used is gathered from a "sacred place," and they use the "No Pick Method." So from what little I can gather, there are actually no flowers in flower essences. Is this a hoax? I mean I know some people have said it works on some cats, but is this because of the flower's supposed "vibration" (whatever that is) or because the cats get drunk off the Brandy fumes? For $30 bucks I could have bought a whole bottle of Brandy and had some for myself!

P.S. The informational insert also talks about using flower essences in conjunction with crystals. You put droplets on the crystal and then the crystals "telegraph or beam the essence's vibrations to ourselves and to our animals." Ummm...am I being close-minded or does that sound hoky to y'all too?

I've never heard of Flower Essences what is it supposed to do for your cat?

Sounds kinda weird to me

Personally, I think it's a crock.

I think they wave the water over the flower and then call it "Essence."

Then again, I'm not "New Agey" enough. I DO believe in some holistics, but I still think a lot of it is bunk, like the stuff old snake-oil salesmen peddled.

Anything called "essence" or "elixir" I'm highly suspicious of. But that's just me.

Hi SnickersMom ~

I think it depends on what you purchase. I've never used flower essences, but I've considered it and I did some research (I had some very stressful problems with my cat and I was willing to try anything - fortunately things worked out on their own, so I never had to purchase anything additional to help). If I ever needed help in the future though, I would consider trying the essences.

I've never heard of Cat Faeries Flower Essences, but I was looking into Bach Rescue Remedy, which is one of the Bach Flower Essences. I have a friend who used Rescue Remedy with her dogs and it calmed them and relaxed them significantly. These essences can be used by both people and animals. Also, the ingredients are not water and brandy! I found this information about the ingredients in Rescue Remedy and I thought I'd share it...


INGREDIENTS: 5 X dilution of the combined flower of Helianthemum nummularium HPUS, Clematis vitalba HPUS, Impatiens glandulifera HPUS, Prunus cerasifera HPUS, Ornithogalum umbellatum HPUS.
Inactive ingredients: Alcohol

ALSO - this link may be helpful. It explains the Bach Flower Essences and I think you will find the information here to be realistic and informational - not quite as "hokey!"


I think it all depends on the person making the decision about what to use, when to use it, etc. Some people seem to have a lot of luck with natural remedies overall, while others like to take more traditional/western approaches to medicine, healing, etc. It does sound a little odd that the Cat Faeries Flower Essences are made of water and brandy though!
