Provide Safe and Gentle Care for Your Animal Companions using featherhawk essences!
Our animal companions love us---there can be no doubt about that! They're excited when we come home, they comfort us when we're upset, they step between us when we argue, and they guard us with their lives. They have a tough job! Some scientists say animals have no emotions... those of us who love the animals in our care know better.
Let featherhawk essences help you create harmony in your household between yourself and your animal companions while improving their health and well-being. The essences are safe and easy to use and they offer exceptional support for...

Animals Help Us With Our Emotions
Animals are very sensitive to the emotions of the people around them. In fact, their job here on Earth is to help us when our emotions become too much for us to bear alone. Nature and flower essences are a great gift that helps animals stay centered and calm even though they are so sensitive. And essences help both them and us remember qualities that live in our heart and soul, but may be hidden or forgotten when life is challenging or scary.
Some situations that cause stress in animals:
Most animals adapt easily to changes in their lives. Sometimes, however, just like people, events can be too much and the animal acts out or misbehaves. Perhaps you are unusually busy and your animal misses regular attention from you, or your own stress causes you to be angry or impatient.
Animals experience the same environmental stresses we do, too, like overprocessed food, poor quality water and air, and chemical and electromagnetic pollution. They may have an undetected illness or injury and this can influence their behavior, as well. It's very important to check with your vet to be sure there is no physical cause for a change in behavior.
What are featherhawk essences and how can they help?
featherhawk essences are pure water imprinted with healing patterns from nature. Their primary work is with what we don't see---mind, soul and emotions, which affects what we do see---the physical body. Essences are an excellent tool for working with animals because the animal kingdom is highly sensitive to the gentle frequencies of the essences and very willing to let go of what doesn't work and move on.
Essences serve our animal companions in many ways, helping them...
Essences reconnect your animal's electrical system, restoring balance and energy flow. This works the same in animals as it does in people. Surprisingly, the words in each essence have an impact on our animal friends, too. Many years ago, a friend was giving essences to her cat. The practitioner who recommended them told my friend to administer some of the essences; the others she was to read to the cat every day.
It may seem absurd that an animal would respond to words, and, like the example above and many others over the years, I've seen it for myself. It may be the love that went into translating the descriptions, or the love that you give them while you read the words. They may not hear and process language like we do; I promise you, they do "get it."
Animals, in their wisdom, simply receive the healing pattern of each essence and/or the loving vibration of the words and allow their energy patterns and behavior to shift. We could learn a thing or two from them about surrender and moving on!
How do I give essences to animals?
Ideally, you want to put the drops directly into their mouth if they will let you. My dog, Chani, a German Shepherd, would sit down next to me with her ears up and her tail wagging when she needed essences, and she'd take them right out of my hand.
If your animal won't take the drops from your hand, rub the essence between your hands briefly, then stroke your animal's head and ears, down their back, and off the tail, if they have one. For each dose, run your hands on their body at least 3 times. More than 3 times is OK, too.
You can also add drops to the water dish every day. Essences only work where they're needed, so it's safe to put drops in a community water dish if you have more than one animal. Other animals will either benefit, or not be affected. Another option is to put a few drops in a spray bottle and spray directly on the animal and/or around its living area. You want to be sure the spray doesn't frighten the animal, so this won't work with everyone.
If you have birds, give them 1 or 2 drops twice a day in their water, drop them on their head or back, or spray in and around their cage.
In an emergency, you can give essences every few minutes until calm is restored. And know this: in a crisis, ANY essence will help you! When the crisis is resolved, you can use muscle testing, pendulum dowsing, or your intuition to select the most perfect essences for your animal companions. In an emergency, though, use whatever you have at hand.
How do I choose essences?
This is the easy part! Glance through the descriptions on this page and select the essence(s) that sounds the most like the behavior or problem you see in your animal. You may also use dowsing or muscle testing to select essences. (To learn muscle testing, click here.)
If you don't find your problem or issue in the essences on this page, check the entire featherhawk catalog (by category or in alphabetical order). Even though you will only see the names of the essences on the catalog pages, you can trust your instincts and go to the pages of the essences that feel right or capture your attention.
Do essences work with regular veterinary care?
Yes, they do! Regular veterinary care excels at diagnosing and treating symptoms and disorders in the physical body. For traumatic injury or acute conditions, there is no better system.
For chronic conditions, behavioral issues, and as an adjunct to conventional care for trauma or injury, essences are unbeatable. Our animal friends are so sensitive to these gentle remedies, and they respond beautifully. When these two systems, conventional veterinary care and essences, work in partnership, the animal's body is supported to do what all living things are designed to do, which is heal itself.

If you are involved with an organization doing animal rescue work, I will donate bottles of Animal Emergency Soulution, free of charge. Every bottle will include info about how to use the essence most effectively. Include a contact name and phone number so I can verify the mailing address and confirm that the essences will be put to good use. Please note that these essences will be packaged in amber bottles.

I will clean them thoroughly, fill them with essences, and mail them where needed. Please do not send any bottles that have contained essential oils or other strong odors.

I will send a minimum of two (2) bottles (one ounce each, or whatever I have on hands) to each organization that requests it. Please feel free to ask for more if needed.

"I just wanted to let you know that Raina is doing well. I have been using the Rain & Lightning essence you sent. We had a thunderstorm here a few days ago, Raina and I and the new puppy, Argos, were all out in the back yard. Usually, Raina will hear the thunder long before I do and will try to hide under furniture. She's a large dog so this usually doesn't work too well!LOL But that day, she lay out in the yard with us while it thundered in the distance. She watched me for signs, and I remained calm with an "its okay" attitude. She remained calm the whole time. She still has some issues, but I really think this essence is helping, especially with the thunderstorms!! Thanks so much for choosing it for her."
My cat Sushi was adopted and then given up by 5 different families before I adopted him as a kitten from the Humane Society. All during the 12 years he has lived with me, he has been stand-offish and prone to biting people unexpectedly. I thought it was just his nature and that he would never change, but I know better now.
"About 2 months ago, you gave me one of your essences to rub on his fur [Gold]. I have been doing that every day faithfully, and he is a different cat now! He comes to me for affection and sits patiently while I scratch and stroke him. He purrs, and even sits on my lap every evening!
Thank you for helping an unhappy cat find love!
Our landlord moved into our building with a big dog, which freaked out our cat. She began peeing on the floor and disappearing all day and coming home late at night. We tried giving her essences to no avail. Then we gave her featherhawk House Cat. She settled right down and was her old self again in no time!
I had to write to you to let you know that my puppy is doing very well! The vet had wanted to put her to sleep after she was hit, since she would never be able to walk after the multiple hip fractures she sustained after being hit by a car.
For two weeks, I gave her Trauma Soulution in her water and topically once every couple hours as well as many other natural therapies. She had comfrey powder, ghee, and honey four times a day for bone repair; ferr phos and calc phos for inflammation and bone repair; and Release blend essential oil topically (which she hated, but it killed the pain so that she could sleep). Within two weeks, she was walking and going to the bathroom without much trouble. Six weeks later, she's running and playing. I've got the x-rays to prove it, too. I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
