I have lost all hesitation about not having to prove things to people.
I saw amazing results...and the same thing goes for behavior work.
Its essence is supposed to be complementary.
We're not a magic bullet. Spirit Essences (now known as

THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO GIVE JACKSON GALAXY SOLUTIONS TO ANIMALS 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)  Add new drops when you replace the water in the water bowl.

Use our optional spray top to mist a room, carrier, bedding, car interior, litter box area, stall, trailer, or other specific problem area. Misting the house or apartment is a great way to treat the whole household.  No need to mist the animal directly.  Some animals may not mind being misted however, and this is fine.

Apply a few drops to or mist a favorite toy.

If animals resists touch, you can simply allow the drops to fall directly on their fur.

Jackson Galaxy Solutions 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 solution.

Please remember that Jackson Galaxy Solutions 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.



Ultimate Peacemaker is a 3-formula set and one of the long-standing best-sellers in the Jackson Galaxy Solutions line. The set consists of:

Bully Solution – 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 Solution 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.



When looking at Jackson Galaxy Solutions and their descriptions, you may find that more than one solution 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 solution,” or the solution that will stay on board for the long haul. The second one will be the "complementary solution" or the one that will support the animal through its current problem.

The base solution gets put in water and wet food every day, so it’s available most often.

The complementary solution, then, gets applied topically or orally up to four times daily. As an added application, the complementary solution 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 Jackson Galaxy Solutions solution 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.



Every pet is different and will have a different healing response over the next pet. Some guardians are using Jackson Galaxy Solutions in addition to other modalities, while others are relying on Jackson Galaxy Solutions 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 Jackson Galaxy Solutions 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 Jackson Galaxy Solutions.



Store Jackson Galaxy Solutions 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 up to 3 years. Unopened bottles stored in a cool cupboard will often last longer than 3 years.



No, Jackson Galaxy Solutions will not interfere with any medications, including the anesthesia used for surgery or dental cleaning. Dr. Jean Hofve, leading holistic veterinarian and co-creator of Jackson Galaxy Solutions says, “because essences work on an energetic rather than physical level, they do not interfere with medical treatments like drugs and surgery; or with alternative therapies such as homeopathy, acupuncture, or herbs; or any other therapy that affects the physical body."



Each bottle of Jackson Galaxy Solutions 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.



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 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.
