Spirit Essences is the only line of essence remedies formulated especially for animals and developed by a veterinarian and internationally recognized animal behaviorist. Although the majority of the remedies are formulated to work with all animals, a select few are species-specific and designed for cats, dogs, or birds.
The line was originally formulated by holistic veterinarian, Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM.
Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy (host of Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell) first learned about Dr. Hofve’s Spirit Essences while on staff at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. Though skeptical at first, he was quickly convinced of their efficacy through his own personal experience using them in his work with cats.
In fact, in 2002, he partnered with Dr. Hofve in a private practice giving mind-body consultations to cat guardians, focusing on the connection between physical and behavioral health. Jackson eventually joined Dr. Hofve in further refining the Spirit Essences remedy line itself.
Jackson has used these remedies for many years in his work with cats, for their power as well as their gentle, safe method of creating change.
