Oregon grape is part of the FES California Quintessentials essences and also belongs to the group of 11 flowers that are for Social Life.
The botanical name is Mahonia aquifolium, and is a species of flowering plant in the family Berberidaceae, native to western North America.

As essence offers qualities such as a positive expectation of the goodwill from others towards oneself.

With Oregon grape essence the soul learns to break the basic pattern of mistrust and seek the positive intentions from others, so it can generate good and positive encounters.

For people and dogs who have a heightened sense of self-protection. Who unfairly project a paranoid vision and expect hostility from others.

When we talk about dogs that due circumstances and situations they have lived, do not trust other dogs or humans, these contacts normally provide an expectation hostility and threat. This is partially due to paranoia which leads to many incidents of attack by the dog.

Oregon grape is a great floral essence as we train the dog and guide them through experiences that confront their fear of others. Achieving a friendly interaction that allows them to observe the *signals of calm emitted by the other dog.
