The Spirit Essences FAQ

| September 22, 2014

Spirit Essences are not meant to interfere with or replace the advice or treatment of your veterinarian. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes.


But no matter which method, always do this first: Tap the bottom of the bottle against the palm of your hand (or shoulder, or other surface) approximately 5 – 10 times before administering. This activates the essence formula and should be done each time immediately prior to administering.
  • Put a few drops in your hand, rub hands together and pet your animal’s head, body, ears, and/or paws.
  • Add 3-5 drops to water and food (Remember more drops does not equal better results)
  • Use our optional 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. (Do not mist the animal directly!)
  • Apply a few drops to or mist a favorite toy.
  • If they resist touch, let the drops fall directly on fur, top of paws, etc.
Spirit Essences are not like medicines or drugs and need not be swallowed: once the drops contact the animal, they are doing their job. In this vein, your animal companion should think of receiving the formula as a good thing, so don’t try to force it by giving it to them orally – stressing your friend out while administering the essences will only serve to undermine our intent.
We recommend starting with 3 – 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: adding a few drops to the drinking water along with a once-a-day administration will probably be adequate. Some animals may need to remain on essence treatment long term, and some may see resolution very quickly. We have found that most animals will benefit from long-term administration of a maintenance remedy.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.
Note: Your intuition about your animal companion and how to dose with essences is important and should be listened to. That’s why we give you suggestions, instead of mandating a specific list of set instructions.

How to use Ultimate Peacemaker

Ultimate Peacemaker is a 3-formula set and one of the long-standing best-sellers in the Spirit Essences line. The set consists of:
  • Bully Remedy – to reduce dominant tendencies in ‘bully’ animals
  • Peacemaker – to ease conflicts between animals
  • Self-Esteem – helps victim animals stand up for themselves
Do this first: Tap the bottom of the bottle against the palm of your hand (or shoulder, or other surface) approximately 5 – 10 times before administering.
  • Give Bully Remedy to the dominant/aggressor animal 3-4 times a day. Apply topically to fur, or put in food.
  • Give Peacemaker to all the animals in the house daily. One way to do this is by dropping 3-4 drops into the community water bowls.
  • Give Self-Esteem to the picked-on or victim animal 3-4 times a day. Apply topically to fur, or put in food.

How to use multiple formulas

When looking at Spirit Essences and their descriptions, you may find that more than one remedy applies to your animal companion. This is quite common. After all, every animal is as unique as we are, and the combination of their inherent personality, life circumstances (past and present), and physical condition present a picture that is often difficult to address with a single set of essences.

When you’ve narrowed your choices down to 2-3 formulas, you’ll assign one to be the “base remedy,” or the remedy that will stay on board for the long haul. The second one will be the “complementary remedy” or the one that will support the animal through its current problem.The base remedy gets put in water and wet food every day, so it’s available most often. The complementary remedy, then, gets applied topically or orally up to four times daily.

As an added application, the complementary remedy can be administered by putting 2-3 dropper-fulls into an 8 oz plant mister and spritzing socially significant areas like beds, condos, sofas, etc. This is also an excellent application method if you are using a third formula.

We have to remember that each Spirit Essences remedy contains an average of 15-20 essences in them. Mixing them into one application would just be overwhelming and, honestly, cancel out the singular effect we’ve worked so hard to achieve.The best way to approach this is by splitting out the application methods.

How long does it take to work?

Every pet is different and will have a different healing response over the next pet.Some guardians are using Spirit Essences in addition to other modalities, while others are relying on Spirit Essences alone.All of these factors play a role in the efficacy of our product.

We have worked with many pets who have responded after the first dose, while others have taken up to 6-8 weeks for the first sign of improvement. We have also found that for some pets, more support, such as behavior modification, is necessary and without it, the pets do not show long-lasting and positive results.Please note that consistency is key and using our formulas on a consistent basis will allow for the best healing and balancing outcome.

Remember that Spirit Essences are not treating specific behaviors, but rather the emotional or energetic imbalances underlying them. By helping the animal feel happier and more secure, we increase the likelihood that behavioral problems will be correspondingly diminished or eliminated. 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.

How to store the formulas & when do they expire?

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.

Once opened, if stored properly, formulas are good for 18 months. Unopened bottles stored in a cool cupboard will often last longer than 18 months.


Each bottle of Spirit Essences is comprised of two types of ingredients: physical and energetic. The physical ingredients are: spring water and alcohol, used as a preservative. The energetic ingredients are: Reiki energy and a variety of flower, animal and gem essences. Please note: No actual plant, animal or gem matter is used in our formulas, only the energetic blueprint. Our formulas are non-toxic and safe.

Contamination concerns

Do not touch the dropper top, nor allow it to touch your pet’s mouth or fur. If the bottle dropper contacts anything outside the bottle, simply rinse the dropper in very hot running water for about 30 seconds before replacing it in the bottle.

Alcohol concerns

Alcohol has been used as a preservative in flower essences since 1920 and we continue to use this trusted method. If you find that your animal friend is averse to the smell, we usually recommend just opening the bottle and letting it air for about 10 minutes before use. While that helps, there will definitely be residual smell. If your animal friend is very sensitive, here’s another tip:

  • Take your pets’ dishes and run them under hot water for about 45 seconds.
  • Empty the water out, leaving a hot bowl.
  • Put your normal dosage in the dish (3-5 drops).
  • Wait another minute, then add cold water to the water bowl and wet food to the food dish.

This will speed up the evaporation process drastically and also keep everything safe since we’re only removing alcohol one serving at a time.
