Daily Hygiene & Self Care

Posted by Rosie Plunkett – Thursday, March 24th, 2016

This article is for all animal lovers, be it cats or dogs and for humans who wish to focus on “Self Care”. I am studying the values and benefits of using the Australian Bush Flower Essences on a regular basis for the dogs in my care and for myself. I have all the essences in stock and learnt to make bespoke essences and combinations for myself and my clients and feel this is valuable knowledge not just for our dearly loved companions.

Over this last weekend I attended a workshop in Kendal in the Lake District  on “Wellbeing for Animals” by Kerrie Searle who is an animal communicator (www.animal-communicator.com.au ) and from that course I wish to share my findings on how we can increase the health of our dogs & cats in a holistic manner that is totally safe and give me a good self care programme to integrate into my daily hygiene.

Daily /weekly / monthly / annually good management routines.

  1. Renew animals drinking water DAILY and add one teaspoon of organic Apple/Cider vinegar in a litre of water (keeps fleas away &  supports flexible joints). I have Bragg’s as it is consider the best as it contains the true essence of the apples know as the Mother.
  2. ABFE Purifying Essence every three months (7 drops twice a day for 14 days ) to release and clear emotional waste and residual by-products, to clear built-up emotional baggage.
  3. ABFE Green essence – if fleas seen, use topically on their fur when needed. It is used to harmonise any internal yeast, mould and parasites to the same vibration as one’s body.It should be taken orally for a minimum two week period adding seven drops to the morning and evening to food.
  4. Diatomaceous Earth – food grade- once a month (will deal with fleas, parasites, worms/ tape worms) Topically if mites, use on coat. Have a look at www.shopholistic.co.uk 1 kg tub £18.50
  5. ABFE Teeth combination,  rub DAILY on teeth or spray mouth
  6. ABFE Travel combination, spray the car when needed.
  7. ABFE Strengthen Immune System Combination  – every six months ( 7 drops twice a day for 14 days)
  8. ABFE Emergency Essence in drops and spray for shock, traumas, accidents, overwhelmed – use when needed.

The Australian Bush Essences are a system of healing that anyone can use for themselves and their pets.  Although Flower Remedies have been used by many cultures for thousands of years, the Australian Bush Flower Essences meet the great need for remedies that help people address the issues of the 21st century – sexuality, communication skills and spirituality to name but a few. The answer to this need (which has come from the Australian plants), has been developed and researched by Naturopath, Ian White, a fifth generation Australian herbalist.

The Bush Remedies not only help to give clarity to one’s life but also the courage, strength and commitment to follow and pursue one’s goals and dreams. They help to develop a higher level of intuition, self esteem, spirituality, creativity and fun. The more the Essences are used, the more one is likely to experience greater awareness and happiness in one’s life. Then everyone benefits….the individual, society and the planet.

The effect of these Essences is similar to that of meditation in that they enable the person to access the wisdom of their Higher Self. This releases negative beliefs held in the subconscious mind and allows the positive virtues of the Higher Self – love, joy, faith, courage etc. to flood their being. When this happens the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.

I have been using ABFE daily since the beginning of November last year and have great confidence in what they have achieved for me. I have released so much deep inner conflict from ages ago. I feel a deep calm and clarity of mind. As a responsible therapist I know how much I need to do to keep myself lively, in the present moment and vital for myself and the work I under take.

I have shared my personal interest in this article with you and it does not reflect my position on the CAR board.

I invite my fellow members and the general public to give me feedback as a contribution for on going discussions.

For future publications share your own articles of interests and topics that maybe of interest to the clients and therapist’s alike:
