You can also use Flow Remedies essences for animals. The principle is the same, you are trying to restore the animal’s emotional and energetic balance by adding energy. The difference is in the dosage, which is usually lower.
As a guideline, you can use two drops per essence when making a dosage bottle, but if your testing method or your intuition gives you a different answer, feel free to go with that. Everyone is different, and some will need a bit more or less than others. If you want to use the essences internally, it’s better to use a dosage bottle or to dilute the drops. Undiluted, the taste can be quite strong, and that may make it difficult to get an animal to accept it.
At first, I thought that was my imagination, so I decided to try and make it a bit more difficult by putting the drops close to the outer edges of his bowl. The funny thing is that no matter where I put the drops, that was where he’d start eating first, where normally he would always start in the middle. Moreover, he’d normally even complain and harass me if the middle of his bowl was empty, until I shook it so there was kibble in the middle again.
Over the years the essences have been used for horses, ponies, dogs, cats and birds. Oftentimes successful, but not always. Sometimes it didn’t work, or not as much as we wanted it to, as there can be other factors at play, and not every issue can be solved with essences. Animals do react quite quickly, though, so you should be noticing something within about two weeks.
While you can basically use all essences for animals, there are 5 essence combinations that have been created specifically with animals in mind:
a1. Chill Out
This essence is aimed at helping frigthtened and nervous animals to find some peace and react more neutrally to things that cause them fear. This grounding energy also encourages self confidence and a basic sense of security.

Mine is created using the following crystal essences: carnelean, larimar, aquamarine, amber, green tourmaline, blue tourmaline.
Below is a list of suggestions for using other essences for animals. For convenience, the descriptions for the essences are listed below the table. That way you can jump around on this page to your heart ‘s content without having to switch between two separate pages:
Crystal essence of rose quartz
Rosetta is a soft and sweet essence. The energy opens your heart to yourself and to others, helps heal a wounded heart and releases blocks. Worries and sorrow are softly expelled from your heart.
This essence also gently stimulates creativity and mental growth. Rose quartz is one of the crystals that everyone would benefit from using every now and then, and children most of all.
Sometimes a growth process throws you outside of your comfort zone, and this essence can help you regain a feeling of safety and security.
Crystal essence of blue fluorite
Fluorite comes in a variety of colours, and this essence was made with a disc that is completely blue.
Oceana mainly works on the throat/fifth chakra, and gently solves energy blocks in that area. Maybe it’s better to say that it’s washing them away, along with any negativity it encounters on the way.
This essence also helps express your thoughts and ideas, promotes creativity and calms the mind.
10. Bright Light
Crystal essence of clear quartz
This essence lights up the darkness and chases away negative thoughts. It helps you clear your mind and align your thoughts. It also strengthens the aura and balances mind and body.
Bright Light is a cleansing essence (focus on your feet when you are working with it, maybe you can feel something happening there) that has a positive and activating energy. It’s recommended after working with Dark and Light, to counter the heavier energy of obsidian and to help clear away any released energy after going through a major energetic clean-up.
Another use for this essence is that it enhances other essences and that it lightens the energy of strongly grounding essences if the grounding aspect gets a bit too much to handle.
Crystal essence of labradorite
Shield repairs and seals the aura. This essence grounds, balances and protects. It also enhances the contact with your higher self.
Like the crystal itself, that seems a bit dull at first sight but lights up with colour when the light hits it just right, this essence helps bring hidden talents to the surface.
The protection of this essence also extends to spaces. Try a couple of drops on the threshold of a room, or the outside entrances to your house, to protect it from outside energies. It’s difficult to describe, and may be different for everyone, but to me, it feels like a room feels after a thorough clean-up.
15. Green Forest
Crystal essence of green fluorite
Green forest balances head and heart, which translates to a calm and clear mind. It inspires and encourages you to create new possibilities.
This is a good essence if you feel rushed and need to calm down.
Crystal essence of tiger’s eye
Trust keeps out negative influences and, if necessary, sends them back to where they came from. This essence protects you and gives you more room to be yourself, without subconsciously adopting the opinions and feelings of others.
This energy gives hope and renews faith in both yourself and the rest of the world. Trust shows you there is such a thing as goodness and helps you see the full scope instead of only the bad parts.
Crystal essence of red tiger’s eye
This essence works relaxing but at the same time, it enhances memory and focus. It helps you look at yourself with a clear view.
Alert helps you be alert and perceptive. It promotes friendship and a feeling of security. It also is a higher kind of protection and guidance. You get the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others, without having to go through a similar situation yourself, after which you take the next few steps yourself.
This essence helps you stay true to yourself during growth processes and to look at things from different perspectives.
Crystal essence of champagne calcite
This crystal looks calm and sparkly, and it lives up to that. It helps you ground very very gently and softly without activating too much.
This is for people who can’t handle too many stimuli, and it helps them reconnect with their emotions. Added to that this essence also protects, like a floating device that gives you the confidence to jump in at the deep end and swim with the current instead of fighting it, because you know you will stay afloat.
40. Tender Heart
Crystal essence of amazonite
Tender Heart balances mind and emotions. It also influences the fifth chakra, which helps you communicate better, making it easier to talk about your feelings without being defensive about them, or going on the offence.
This is a very gentle essence that unlocks your heart and helps dissolve blocks in the heart and throat area. It gently helps you let go and has a calming and relaxing effect. It also makes it easier to ease out of restricting relationships, even when it concerns people that have already passed away.
The calming effect of this essence is also important if you suffer from anxiety. Amazonite has a filtering effect that makes itself known in two ways: it’s a strong protector that filters energy and keeps away negative energy, and it helps you filter information, helping you to distinguish between the flood of information that comes at you during the course of a day, both noticeable and unnoticeable information. This calms the mind, leaving you energy for other things.
Crystal essence of green apatite
This essence helps you find peace and quiet within yourself and helps you connect with the world and beyond.
You are part of a whole, everything has a purpose and it is what it is. Peace helps you accept yourself and everything around you without prejudice. It has a detoxifying effect and will help you have faith and let go of doubts.
Crystal essence of prehnite
Cleanse initiates a thorough cleansing process and detoxifies, mainly in the heart chakra and solar plexus. It connects the heart to the will and helps you live from the heart. This essence reduces fears and helps you have faith if you have a fear of scarcity. Where there is love, there is no fear.
The way cleanse reduces fears is to help you face them, deal with them and solve them, so you are less inclined to run from them and to hide in distraction and procrastination (this may get worse at the start, or it will seem to be worse because you are starting to notice it, so be prepared for that possibility). Also be prepared for the sudden urge to declutter, which is a side effect of the cleansing effect of this essence.
Added to that, Cleanse is soothing and it exposes the cause of discomforts. It can also be used as a search-essence, boosting inner knowing so you will start to see where the sore spots are, and it will do so in a soft and loving way. Some of these insights can be a bit painful, but in general, this essence will show them to you bit by bit so it slowly sinks in, instead of hitting you over the head with them. It also helps you to be able to handle more in terms of impressions/information. You can process those faster, which may be of some help with hyperactivity or if you are easily overwhelmed/overstimulated.
Cleanse also protects the aura, and you can even use it to protect your house by putting a few drops on thresholds or window sills. Be sure to use the essence diluted for this purpose, by putting a few drops in hot water so the alcohol evaporates and then using the water. This is the be-on-the-safe-side approach for protecting the material of said thresholds and window sills.
c1. Big Hug
Big Hug is a giant embrace for when you are sad. This essence comforts you and helps you feel safe, more hopeful and more optimistic.
You can also use it as a first aid essence in case of shock and pain.
c7. Protective Bubble
When you have trouble releasing energy you pick up from people, or even places, that can make you feel tired, chaotic and gloomy.
This combination helps to protect and ground your aura/energy field. Added to that, it removes negative energy and sends it back to where it came from if needed.
c11. To the Rescue
This essence helps you out in emergency situations. It grounds you, removes negative energy, comforts and protects. It’s a powerful but gentle energy that is suited for everyone.
During the testing period for this essence, we found that it can also be of help if you aren’t properly present in your body for whatever reason, or when someone has an outer body experience but doesn’t come back properly. The feeling was described as a loving pressure on their shoulders followed by preventing them from exiting again.
c20. Heart of the Matter
This essence is one of the go-to essences for when your heart is closed off. It will open and warm the heart chakra and allow love in. For yourself, for others and for the world around you. Heart of the Matter gives you a really warm and loving feeling, and it dissipates annoyance and judgment so you can go about your day a little milder.
This is an essence of giving and receiving in all kinds of ways, and it balances them as well. Think of giving without demanding something in return, giving without feeling someone else has more of a right to it than you have, or giving without being afraid there won’t be not enough left. Think of receiving without feeling uncomfortable because somewhere deep down you have doubts about being worth it, and of relaxing yourself so you are able to receive.
Heart of the Matter lets the sun shine in your heart and sometimes that can make you feel as if you’ve swallowed a piece of the sun. It makes your heart chakra glow, giving you hope and bringing a bit of cheerfulness into your life. Not everything is serious and complicated, but it is easy to lose sight of that. Look at how beautiful simple things can be, a flower, a brightly coloured butterfly, a funny cloud or a little caterpillar that crosses your path.
Another reason for the name of this essence is that it helps you release old patterns of not loving yourself that a lot of the time are the root cause of most issues. It’ll help you feel an all-encompassing love that just may, after a while, make you happy enough to want to dance…
Refuel is a little energy bomb, even if it is in a different way than you would expect. When your energy level is very low, everything becomes a mountain, even doing the things you need to do to feel better.
Sometimes everything feels like too much trouble and nothing succeeds, not even getting some rest because you ‘have’ to keep going because you’re already so far behind.
Refuel helps you replenish the energy reserves in your aura because most of the time you are not only physically and mentally drained, but the energy level in your aura is very low as well. This makes it easier for outside energy to get in, which in turn makes you feel overwhelmed and prevents you from regaining your balance and your energy.
You can recharge by getting some rest, but you need to get yourself out of the way to actually manage that. Refuel clears your mind and helps you get an overview. Not everything is as urgent as it seems when you are feeling overwhelmed, and getting some rest is important as well.
Refuel replenishes the energy in your aura that may just give you the small push that is needed to decide to drop whatever you are doing and get some rest first. Added to that, it detoxifies mentally and grounds you.
This essence will work to protect your aura if it has been damaged by outside or inside influences. Inside influences can be negative thought patterns (stress, victim mindset, trauma, catastrophic thinking, an active inner critic, being torn between what you want and what you think you should want, etc.), being poorly grounded or energy blocks.
Outside influences can be disruptive energetic influences like negative energy from people or places, earth rays, and radiation from appliances, phone masts and the like.
The stronger and healthier your aura is, the more resilient you are and the less those disruptive influences bother you. They’ll just roll off of you instead.
Rebuild protects and grounds your aura. It enhances the energy flow and fills in gaps when and where needed. If necessary, you will be shown what inside influences you can tackle to support this process, so it will help if you pay attention to your thoughts and to things that seem to jump out at you or that you keep encountering.
The theme for this essence is ‘feminine balance’. Moonflow energetically and mentally cleanses, detoxifies and, above all, balances.
Added to that it boosts your self-confidence. Moonflow will help you keep a level head and express yourself in a relaxed manner, especially to those that are closest to you.
Moonflow is the result of a request for an essence that would help with PMS, but it turned out to have a wider range than that. It can also be used as a support during menopause to help your emotional and energy balance
As this essence can release a lot of energy, please remember to drink extra water to help release any excess energy.
It won’t surprise you when you hear that this essence cleanses and detoxifies. Negativity is drained away and/or transformed into positive energy, and you will be firmly grounded so you can get rid of excess energy. As a result of mental cleansing, your mind will become calmer.
This essence was made to cleanse mentally and emotionally, but if you are sensitive, you may feel energy being released in your body.
It’s very important to drink enough water when working with this essence, to help release the energy that is released. You can combine this essence with c43. Swept to support this process.
Depending on how sensitive you are and how much energy is being released, you can play with the dose a bit. A drop of this essence in a dosage bottle will work slower than taking two drops in a glass of water every day. If it feels like things are going too fast, you can adjust the dose or take a dose every other day or even every two days.
Also beware that you may experience attacks of decluttering urges, because it has been proven that that’s a side effect of cleansing at a mental and emotional level.
Hope helps you to release negative energy, and to recognise and change harmful thought patterns. You will start to see the light at the end of the tunnel instead of feeling like you are stuck and you have nowhere to go. This will enable you to start seeing the positive things in life again.
Slowly, you will start seeing the silver lining again. It was there all the time, you just temporarily lost sight of it because you couldn’t see the forest for the trees.
Hope clears the mind and helps you get a clearer perspective. It will enable you to organise your thoughts and begin to feel like you are in charge of your life instead of feeling like a victim of your surroundings or the circumstances.
The positive and light energy of this essence will enable you to better handle whatever life throws at you and will help you put more emphasis on what is going right in your life than on what is going wrong.
Fuzzy is a warm, comforting energy that makes you feel safe and cherished. It’s a warm embrace, you are loved and you are welcome. This essence gives hope and faith and feels like a warm blanket if you were feeling (for a little while or a bit longer) unseen and unloved.
It will help you see that things are less bleak than you think, and it will help you find calm, courage and a down-to-earth view of situations. When you are feeling safer, the world looks a lot less dangerous.
This essence is very soft and gentle, making it very suitable for children that have trouble dealing with change or are going through a change in their lives.
This combination essence was created using the following single essences: green apatite, amber, pink quartz, champagne calcite, aquamarine, kyanite, astrofyllite, danburite and lavender flower essence.
This is an essence that supports all kinds of healing. It can be used before, during or after an energy healing session, or as support when recuperating from an illness or an operation, as whatever healing process you are going through is bound have an emotional aspect as well as a physical one. Healing helps you deal with the emotional aspects of such situations.
Healing grounds and gives hope, strength, courage and new energy. It balances your emotions and your energy system and helps you deal with difficult situations.
This essence also contains angel energy. Archangel Rafael is the healer of the angelic realm, and his loving energy will support you in your healing process.
Healing will also help you surrender to the process, to be open to what your soul is telling you, and to have faith in yourself.
This combination essence was created using the following single essences: blue fluorite, larimar, champagne calcite, hemimorphite, selenite, serpentine, pyrite, serafinite, marcasite, celestine, amber, lepidolite, astrofyllite, biotite-granite, variscite, purpurite, galena / galenite, danburite, angelite, emerald, bornite, blue tourmaline, sulfur quartz and angel energy (Rafael).
Golden is an aura healer that helps you bring back the protective golden layer that surrounds your aura. Besides that, your energy field is both cleansed and grounded. The energy also balances the chakras and aligns them.
Another part is that you will feel more connected, and have more of a sense of unity. Within that unity, you will still be able to define your own energy, because Golden is also an essence that helps you to re-align your energetic boundaries and/or helps you to become aware of where your boundaries are.
This will bring you some peace and quiet and help you to feel less put upon. You will be more able to stay true to yourself and have more resistant against outside influences and expectations. As a result of this, it will be easier to connect (whether temporary or not) with others without losing yourself in the process.
This golden layer can sometimes leave behind a surprisingly positive and loving imprint.
This combination essence was created using the following single essences: labradorite, jasper, kyanite, amber, astrofyllite, biotite-granite, purpurite, galena / galenite, peridot, danburite, emerald and serpentine and chrysocolla from Mount Shasta
c82. Don’t Go
This essence helps with fear of abandonment/abandonment anxiety. It soothes, helps you let go of emotional pain, and cleanses the heart chakra. Simultaneously, you softly gain insights into the cause and are helped to deal with situations where this fear gets triggered.
Most of the time it’s a lot more complicated than panicking when someone leaves. It can rear its head in all kinds of situations where it’s not immediately apparent that it’s fear of abandonment, like situations where you feel abandoned or left behind metaphorically without someone physically leaving.
Whatever the reason, sometimes a sore point is touched upon, and it causes a torrent of feelings of abandonment to rise to the surface. Don’t go is comforting, helps reduce annoyance and helps you look at the situation more neutrally.
The energy reduces feeling like a victim, helps you see patterns and break them. It also helps you to be more independent and stand on your own two feet.
This combination essence was created using the following single essences: blue calcite, pink quartz, green calcite, blue fluorite, labradorite, rutilated quartz, blue chalcedony, amazonite, amber, magnesite, danburite, green tourmaline, sulphur quartz and prehnite.
