There are so many life changes that can cause our cats to become upset and agitated on an emotional level — everything from moving to a new house, adding a new cat to the family, the arrival of a baby, or even just a thunder storm. These stresses can eventually lead to physical problems as well. What if there was a way to naturally and safely reduce your cat’s stress to help them live a calmer, more balanced life? That’s exactly what Spirit Essences can do for you. Without any drugs or chemicals, using just a safe, non-toxic natural remedy.
So, what are Spirit Essences exactly? They are vibrational essences, meaning they are remedies that are infused with the energy from natural elements like flowers and gem stones. You may have heard of Dr. Edward Bach who pioneered flower essence therapy in the 1930s. Spirit Essences use flower essences similar to those developed by Dr. Bach, but they also take advantage of a wide variety of other vibrational essences to create remedies specifically for treating animals.
Spirit Essences was founded by holistic veterinarian Dr. Jean Hofve in 1995. In addition to conventional veterinary training, Dr. Jean studied veterinary homeopathy, homotoxicology, Reiki, and many other facets of holistic medicine. In 2002 Dr. Jean partnered with cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy who became the President of Spirit Essences and is now the star of Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell, and who uses the remedies frequently in his work as a cat behavior consultant. Jackson has been using the essences for many years in his practice and has come to appreciate their power as well as their gentle, safe method of creating noticeable change for his clients.
Spirit Essences remedies are very easy to administer. You can add the essences to your cat’s water or food, spray the room with a mister, or apply them directly to the cat’s fur while you pet them. Most issues can usually be resolved in 2 to 6 weeks with regular application.

There are several easy ways to give Spirit Essences™ to animals, but no matter the method, always do this first: Tap the bottom of the bottle against the palm of your hand approximately 5 - 10 times before administering. This activates the essence remedy and should be done each time immediately prior to administering.
Here are ways you can administer the remedy:
- Add 3-5 drops to water and food (Remember more drops does not equal better results)
- Use spray top to mist a room, carrier, bedding, car interior, litterbox area, stall, trailer, or other specific problem area. Misting the house or apartment is a great way to treat the whole household
- Apply a few drops to or mist a favorite toy or brush
- Put a few drops in your hand, rub hands together and pet your animal's head, body, ears, and/or paws
We recommend starting with 3 or 4 times a day, for 2 weeks. Once improvement is established, usually within 2-4 weeks, you can wean the animal off by gradually decreasing the frequency of administration.
To increase the dose, increase the frequency of administering the remedy, not the amount given per administration. For example: applying drops to an animal 5 times/day vs. 2 times/day.
Store Spirit Essences™ remedies out of direct sunlight and away from strong odors (cosmetics, medicines, spices) or electromagnetic fields (microwave, refrigerator, stereo). In other words, a cabinet is best.
While no treatment can be guaranteed to work 100% for every single case, it is a very rare animal that does not noticeably respond to Spirit Essences.
Please remember that Jackson Galaxy's Spirit Essences™ work best when part of a more holistic treatment program, that may include proper veterinary care, diet, behavior modification, and other holistic modalities.
