Flower Power

Cat-w-flowers

With over 10 years experiences of working with flower essences and animals an unusual thing started to happen. Whilst making up the essences for an animal, the animal would become calmer and less stressed even though they had not taken the essences. It made me re-evaluate the flower essences with a different understanding of how […]
