Equine Raindrop Technique - 
Essential Oils for Horses

Equine Raindrop Technique using Essential Oils

Equine Raindrop Technique is a home remedies for horses modality that uses a combination of essential oils and holistic modalities to bring electrical balance and structural alignment to the horse's body.

From occasional sore backs and muscles to boosting immunity, this technique can detox the body and help the body come back into equilibrium thus  supporting the natural healing of the body.

The Raindrop Technique was developed by Gary Young, ND a world known expert in the field of therapeutic grade essential oils and founder of Young Living Essential Oils. He originally designed this technique for those who had scoliosis of the spine but soon discovered that it had incredible benefits for everyone including animals!

What is Equine Raindrop Technique?

After Dr. Heather Mack, DVM watched Gary Young perform a Raindrop at a convention where a woman measured over a 1/2 inch taller after the session, she decided to modify the Raindrop Technique procedure to use the oils for horses; and coined the term Equine Raindrop Therapy; although technically it is a technique not a therapy.

Since then she has become an advocate of Raindrop for horses and recommends that it be performed once per month to keep the horses body structurally aligned and energetically balanced; as well as to support a healthy immune system.

I personally use Raindrop as an emotional release technique and understand that emotions are a very important component of a vital health.

Here is my philosophy summed up in one line. :)

Healthy Immunity (Physical) + Happy Horse (Mental & Emotional) = Healthy Horse!

Healthy horses are less prone to injury, enjoy their work and perform better on all levels. Wahooo!

What are the Benefits of Equine Raindrop Technique?

The benefits of equine raindrop are the same as humans. But there are specific horse conditions that holistic vets have been using Raindrop for very successfully. Here are a few:

  • Address emotional (horse emotions) and physical well being of the horse;

  • Prevent and combat occasional sore backs and muscles before and after training or competition;

  • Complements other modalities such as acupuncture and chiropractor treatment;

  • Boost immunity which is so important during shipping and competition;

  • Help release toxins (emotional and physical);

  • Help solve "mystery" lameness when vets have cleared the horse of physically issues;

  • Provided hostile environment for Parasites (EPM in particular); and

  • Other horses around the barn will benefit from the aroma of essential oils!

Remember, decreasing the toxic load on the body will support the immune system and the natural healing process.

How is the Procedure Done?

Here is a quick overview:

  1. The oil blend of Valor is placed on the poll, shoulders and sacrum to balance the energies of the physical and emotional body. It is also placed on all four feet.
  1. On the coronet bands, Oregano and Thyme are placed where the meridians of the body end. A Vita Flex procedure is conducted also on the coronet bands to promote healing.

  2. Essential oils of basil, wintergreen, cypress, and peppermint are placed on the inside of the hind legs. A Vita flex procedure is conducted on the leg which stimulates the spleen, liver and kidney meridians. This also may be conducted on the front legs if dealing with an imbalance of the small or large intestine; lung or heart meridians.

  1. Oils of oregano, thyme, basil, wintergreen, marjoram, Aroma Siez, marjoram, Aroma Siez, cypress and peppermint is applied to the spine from the base of the sacrum to the withers. Vita flex techniques are also applied to the spine to stimulate the healing work and allow the oils to go deeper into the tissue.

  2. Lastly, a hot towel is applied to the spine for about five minutes. A light sheet or cooler is placed over the compress to keep the horse warm.

While the horse is enjoying the hot towel spa treatment, other work such as emotional release and vita flex can be done on the neck and poll!

Can I Ride my Horse Right after a Session?

You probably can ride immediately after session if you absolutely have to; however, I find that it is best if the horse is not ridden for at least several hours. Most of the time, I perform the session after the horse is done for the day; then the horse can go back to regular work the next day.

As with humans, it will depend on the horse. If the horse is dealing with a severe toxicity , then you may want to wait at least 24 hours to ride; but most horses will not have to take any time away from training.

Please Note: I have seen horses release toxins that hibernated along the spine up to seven days after the session so do make sure your horse is drinking plenty of water!
