Flower Essence Formulas


Calming & comforting for animals in transition or trauma

The Animal Relief Formulas has been very effective for my five-year old dog. She suffered trauma in her early years and is still stressed by loud noises and extreme weather. She sometimes exhibits seizure-like symptoms while in a deep, dream-like state. ARF clearly alleviates all these symptoms and helps her to remain balanced and peaceful, even in stressful conditions.

A friend suggested the Animal Relief Formula for Lion and Ling, two male Siamese cats about 5 or 6 years old, which we adopted, and the change has been amazing. It began within two or three days of starting the essence. Lion allowed us to approach him and pet him. Ling started to demand attention now and then. Both warmed up rapidly. The most amazing shift was that we were able to trim the claws on all four of Lion's feet in one sitting without his becoming hysterical about being held and without his running from us for days afterwards. Overall, I would say the Animal Relief Formula helped them heal enough to see us for who we really are and give us a chance to prove we are people they can trust and enjoy.

I’ve had profound results using the Animal Relief Formula with two dogs who had been abused and were rescued—they had huge trauma and were in crises. Almost instantly; one of the dogs accepted the family and another animal in its new home. The other traumatized dog took longer to adjust and needed another essence as well, but the outcome was positive.

I am so impressed with your Animal Relief Formula. All 13 kitties in my house finally are at peace and can show “no fear” around one another. My horses are less uptight & spooky. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful healing helper from Nature. …

The Animal Relief Formula was originally developed by FES-certified practitioner and animal communicator, Teresa Wagner.

We had a particularly nervous dog, Fred, staying with us a few weeks ago. I decided to try the Animal Relief on him, as our dog, Rufus, really seemed to appreciate being treated with the special formula. I've found that spraying the formula on their front paws and letting them do what they feel is best with it works well. But I was not sure how Fred would react to this treatment, since one of his consequences for bad behavior at home was to be sprayed with a water bottle. Apparently, this was a completely different experience because Fred joined Rufus and me on the floor, waited for his turn to receive the flower essence on his paw, then reverently licked the flower essences from his paw, and seemed to finally have some peaceful time in our home. It was a fun and special experience.
