Flower Essences For Pets: Spotlight On Larch

When I first started to use flower essences, I was very much drawn to them. Something about their powerful simplicity really spoke to me. I then became a certified Flower Therapist and I have been using flower essences with my animal & human clients as well as teaching classes about the essences for the last 12 years and I love them!

Other “Spotlight” Flower Essence Posts…

So far, I’ve put the Spotlights on, MimulusHeatherHoneysuckleCrab Apple, and Five Flower Emergency Essence. In each I talked about how these essences help to bring about re-alignment, emotional re-balancing, and Well-Being to your animal friend(s).

What are Flower Essences?

Essentially the way they work are at a being’s vibrational and emotions levels. The essences are vibrating at a higher speed and more POSITIVE level, then that of the current negative behavior. When taken, the essence opens up the blockage(s) and similar to a turning fork that is struck and put in a glass of water, re-tunes the body to the more positive vibrational level. This is bringing BACK an animal’s natural feeling of Well-Being and thus positive emotions and behaviors with it.

I have personally found that since an animal’s natural state is to be in a constant state of allowing and Well-Being and that they gravitate naturally towards nature and her healing power that results in animals are incredibly fast and can be very dramatic.

Please remember! Flower Essences are wonderful tools. However they are NOT a substitute for veterinary care. ALWAYS consult your Veterinarian on any cases dealing with your pet’s health even if you just suspect there might be a problem!

So, let’s continue to look at flower essences with putting…

The Spotlight on Larch…

For me personally Larch is a essence that is near and dear to my heart.
This was the first one that I ever took. Because of it, I started my professional career. To say this essence opened the door so that I could find my bliss is putting it mildly.

Larch is the essence “The Self-Confidence”, and it deals with the souls ability for self-confidence and self-esteem.

I often give this essence for both a short-term situation, such as: shortly before a show or competition. Or for a long-term situation such as: getting over rescue, adoption or shelter situations. Now self-confidence and self-esteem issues are not always easily recognizable in animals but below are some example, which might help you to decide if Larch is right for your animal friends.

What are some common Larch uses?

•Adopting and animal that has been in a shelter for either a long or short period of time. Even thought the shelter may have been wonderful, it is the uncertainty from day to day, of “Will this be the day I find my home?” That can be hard on the self-esteem.

•As a show or competition draws nearer, your animal friend seems slightly unsure of themselves

•After a show or competition, your animal friend “seems a little down”. This could be your animal friend just getting the vibes/thoughts from others, that they did not achieve what was wanted. What happens instead of the animal having the feeling “Well, better luck next time!” They begin to feel a little down on themselves. Holding the head down, looking ashamed, worried or concerned, holding the tail between legs, are all possible indications.

•In their new home situation the animal seems “unsure” of their new surroundings. Hiding under beds, in closets, keeping to the back of the stall, etc. These could be a signs they are lacking the confidence and assuredness that they will eventually become capable of getting used to their new home.

•Your animal friend has come from a rescue or abusive situation. In both cases, depending on the severity the animal’s self-confidence and self-esteem could be low.

•Training seems particularly difficult for your animal pal. They seem to get discouraged easily and not adapting to the new techniques easily. This essence Combined with Chestnut bud could help with that.

•Animals that are constantly being constantly dominated by the other animals in the household. Now, with animals yes, there is a “pecking order” or hierarchy. However an animal will sometimes become too dominated, to the point where it s as if their position in the hierarchy does not count. Even in a pack, a herd, a family, each individual’s ideas and thoughts come together and are acknowledged. But the animal that requires Larch does not seem to even try to bring their personality or ideas to the “table” because they feel “less than”.

•The animal does not seem to participate in “family activities”. They hold themselves apart and stay on the outskirts, when the other animals in the household are playing.

These are naming only a few examples.

Tip: Consulting your Animal Communicator to verify that these are the problems is also a very good idea!

How do I give the essences to my animal friend(s)?

Normally putting the drops in the animals water works very well, and if you have a multiple animal household, don’t worry, the essences will not do anything to the other animals, unless they need it.

For small animals (cats, dogs): Give 2-3 drops in their water, from each bottle and then put new drops in whenever you change the water.

For bigger animals (Horses, Cows, Llamas, etc) anywhere from 8-16 drops on a slice of bread, or muffins have been know to work too! Or take an apple, cut it either in halves or quarters, then use a knife of stick to make small holes into each slice and then put the essences into each of the holes. That should do the trick!

If you do not notice even the SLIGHTEST of changes after a 24-72 hour period then it might mean your friend will need to try another essence.

    Hi Carolin, Oh yes, animals are really respective to them. Animals know instinctively that healing powers of natural things. They don’t have to be so convinced as we humans sometimes have to be. There are even some Bach Flowers that have been known the help plants. I have had amazing results with animals with the Bach Flowers as well as combos of using Reiki, TTOUCh along with the Bach Flowers as well. Thanks so much for your comment and for dropping by.

    Hi Lorraine! Thanks for the comment. I also used them first on myself and then started to study the use of the essences on animals. Just like you I started using Rescue Remedy with my animals and then 1 of the clinics I worked in used to use it for the emergency cases that came in. That is when I stared really seeing what these powerful essences can do in action. They animals are so opened and so intuitively knowing that these will help them that that mindset along with the Bach Flowers are truly powerful combination. Thanks for stopping by!
