A lack of confidence or timidity is more common in our animal friends than we are often aware of. Have you ever been at a holiday party and had a tinge of nervousness about talking to people you haven’t met yet? Or maybe even just visiting family or friends and you don’t feel completely comfortable being yourself in their home? We get anxious and timid in many situations, even if we’re pros at covering it up! Our pets do too.
Sometimes we see obvious signals that our pets are nervous, such as shaking, tucking their tail, licking their lips, panting, yawning, crouching, or moaning or howling. Sometimes we see behavioral changes such as them hiding, trying to pull on leashes, or clinging to us closer than usual. If you feel like your pet may be lacking confidence, Ego Builder can naturally help them to:
- Feel empowered and thrive in new situations and unfamiliar environments
- Build confidence to face new challenges
- Improve self-esteem and help them feel loved
- Try new things such as crossing water, entering show rings, traveling to new places
- Develop self-confidence over time
Ego Builder is the perfect solution to consistently give shy, timid, fearful, and reserved animals the boost they need to face challenges with confidence.
Like all Flower Essences, Ego Builder is safe to use as often as needed and most effective when used regularly. Any animal of any age can benefit from the confidence Ego Builder gives. We often suggest pairing with other Flower Essences. Ego builder pairs well with Clear Thinking, Mellow Out, Easy Does It and/or In Training.
Do not allow children to handle glass bottle. Use caution when administering flower essence by inserting glass pipette directly into mouth. If using a plastic pipette, do not keep the plastic in bottle, as it may alter the flower essences and cause them to be less effective. Wash pipette after direct contact with mouth to prevent contamination. Keep away from open flames.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE/APPLICATIONS
As the flower essences are in a liquid form, they can be used in a variety of ways to best suit your animal. Use as part of your animal’s daily regimen to optimize effectiveness. Adding more drops than recommended will not increase effect or hasten results.
For short term situations where the negative behavior is displayed, use one hour prior to event. If used for training, incorporate into your animal’s daily care regimen, preferably one hour before training session.
For the most effective and immediate results, placing the recommended number of drops into animal’s mouth using pipette provided or a plastic pipette is best. Wash pipette thoroughly after use before returning it to the bottle.
For feral or hard to approach animals, utilizing a spray is helpful. Add 3-4 drops to 8oz. distilled, purified or spring water in a spray bottle. Spray directly into air in the direction of your animal’s mouth, nose and ears as well as their paws, hooves, or feet.
The easiest way to incorporate them into your life is to add the flower essences directly to your animal’s water bowl or bucket. Change water daily for best results and replenish the flower essences with each water change.
Apply recommended number of drops to your pet’s favorite hard treat. Using hard dog biscuits, carrots or apples is best as these will not absorb the flower essences quickly and affect efficacy. This method is not recommended as the essences may be absorbed by the food and not be as effective as placing the drops directly into the mouth or water.
Note: The rhythmic use of the flower essences improves their efficacy. The effects are improved by using them on a more frequent and consistent basis, not by increasing the dosage at one time.
Keep container tightly sealed. Keep out of direct sunlight. To prolong life of product, keep in refrigerator after opening.
Shake well before using. The best way to shake the flower essences is to use succession. To use this method, vigorously tap the bottom of the bottle on the palm of your hand as this activates the flower essences inside.
A short loading dose is recommended when beginning to use the flower essences. Simply use the recommended dosage two to three times daily for the first three days. Once the desired balance has been reached, use recommended dosage one to two times daily as part of your animal’s daily regimen to optimize efficacy.
