Flower Essence - Overgrooming

Is your cat overgrooming?

Then try this, 7 Flower Remedies in one bottle.

This solution of flower essences is designed to help with obsessive, compulsive behaviours. Along with stress reducing activities and sometimes veterinary help, it helps to break the chain.

Excessive grooming


Pulling out fur

Excessive scratching, chewing

If your vet has ruled out a medical condition the next step is to try and establish the cause of the stress/anxiety and where possible eliminate it although this is not always possible especially since it has now become compulsive and can be difficult to interrupt.

Grooming relaxes the cat releasing endorphins, a stressed-out cat continues to overgroom and over time if they groom in the same place, the skin can become red and inflamed and could become infected. If you see that the skin is red, please do take your cat to the vet.

The longer a cat has overgroomed for the longer it can take to break the cycle. Each remedy bottle is made specifically to order and contains no alcohol; therefore, its shelf life is limited to 4 weeks. I ask all cat guardians to update me once the cat has been on the remedy for 2 weeks so if a further bottle is required, I can get it out in time for continuity of treatment.

Please note UK only.

One bottle when applied as per instructions last 3 weeks.

  • A natural formula
  • Apply 4 times a day for best results
  • 30ml bottle

Flower essences work best when part of a holistic programme. Which can include, veterinary care, behaviour modification, diet. Consult your vet before adding any new product to your cats care regime.

This product is not intended to treat, diagnose, or cure any disease.

Store in a cool, dark place.


Flower essences do not treat the specific behaviours, but the emotional imbalances underlying them. Flower essences help to correct the emotional state by bringing the opposite, positive quality.

By helping these emotional issues they help the cat feel more secure and settled and that can help to resolve the behavioural issue.

When will I see results?

The results vary between cats, as like us they are all individuals. Some cats respond very quickly while others it can take 6-8 weeks. I have also found that that for some cats, more support is needed, such as behaviour modification and environment enrichment is necessary.

Consistency is the key and using the flower essences on a consistent basis will allow for the most positive outcome.

Please note that flower essences are not intended to replace or interfere with advice or treatment from your veterinary surgeon.


There are several ways you can give the solution to your cat. Always shake the bottle before use as this activates the formula.

  • You can use it as a spot on treatment
  • Add to their food or treat
  • Put the drops on your hand, and pet your cat on the head, body, paws
  • Never place the glass dropper directly in the cats mouth, as they could bite it and ingest

You want your cat to see the administering of the drops as a positive activity. Please don't stress your cat out when administering the flower essences as this will undermine the success of the essences.

If you touch the glass dropper by accident, or allow it to touch your cats fur or contacts anything other than the inside of the bottle, simply rinse the dropper in very hot water before replacing it in the bottle.

The remedies need to be stored in a cool dark place. Away from strong smelling odours.

My cat is doing better, do I need to keep using the flower essences?

Most cats benefit from a longer term of flower essences. Once you cat is improving you can wean the cat off the essences gradually, by decreasing the frequency of administration.

Some cats may need to remain on the essences long term.


Various flower essences, glycerine, and spring water. The individual essences are listed on the label of the bottle.

Will it interfere with medication?

No, not at all! They do not interfere with any medication. Essences work energetically rather than on a physical level and do not interfere with any drugs, homeopathy, herbs, or any therapy that affects the physical body.
