About the Book

Add to Shopping Cart

($14.95 softcover)  Flower Essences for Animals presents a bird's eye view into the animal kingdom. It pays homage at the feet, paws, and hooves of our animal friends by offering a treasury of practical tools for enhancing the quality of their lives. Addressing specific conditions and behaviors, this book provides simple solutions for administering the best possible pet care in both daily life and emergency situations.

That pets are routinely relinquished and often euthanized, if not misunderstood—for completely correctable behavioral problems—indicates a serious need for a book of this nature. For the dog who barks incessantly; for the cat who soils and sprays; for the pet tortoise who is confused by a weather shift while preparing for hibernation: Flower Essences for Animals presents loving, sensitive solutions.

Animals—free from mental blocks, doubt, skepticism, placebo effects, and myriad mental interferences—respond even more readily than people to flower essences: herbal tinctures for strength and balance. The Master's Flower Essences are the second oldest essence line in the world today. Developed in 1977 by the author, they are a completely safe, nontoxic, and gentle yet powerful holistic therapy. .

In the concluding chapter of Flower Essences for Animals, Lila Devi (Stone) writes: "Those who share with me their flower essence stories about their pets do so with animation, excitement, and enthusiasm. It is never 'just a cat' or 'only a dog' whose story they are recounting. It is a beloved, respected life companion. Flower Essences for Animals is not a book to convince you that animals deserve better care. Its purpose is to give you, a loving pet owner, the very tools with which to do it." Lila's compassionate glimpse into the animal kingdom is a reminder that pets can bring us many years of happiness; and that we, through our loving service, can return the favor.

Flower Essences Applications for Pets and Animals: Qualities, Behaviors, & Situations


Animals often respond even more quickly than people to flower essences, as countless pet testimonials worldwide have confirmed. These twenty remedies—prepared from fruit and vegetable blossoms—activate your pet's ability to live a more balanced life. Addressing specific behaviors and situations rather than treating physical symptoms, flower essences allow animals to return to their natural state of harmony. Given singly, results will be noticed within 3 days, and oftentimes immediately; combinations of 3 to 5 essences also work well.

Four times a day using any of the following methods is the recommended minimum, preferably not with meals (10 minutes before or 1 hour afterward); or every few minutes in emergency situations. Add 4 drops of Stock Concentrate to a fresh water bowl, or 16 Stock drops to a watering trough. In addition, you may apply several drops to your palm and rub them into your pet's fur, feathers or scales. Some animals like the essences rubbed on their gums, around their nostrils, behind their ears or on their paw pads. Four drops added to water in a misting bottle to spray bedding, stalls, kennels, cars or carriers is also effective. (To prepare a Dosage Bottle, add 2 Stock drops to a 1-oz. dark bottle, 1 T brandy, and spring water. Use as above, 4 drops at a time.) Store out of direct sunlight, heat, and humidity.

Please note: It is advisable for the pet owner to honestly assess if he is contributing to his pet's problem. For example, giving Grape Essence, for loneliness, to a neglected animal will not replace proper care from the owner. Also, flower essences do not replace proper veterinary treatment.
