Why Should You Use Home Remedies for Horses and Specifically, Essential Oils?

I could list a million reasons why we should use essential oils for horses, but here are my top reasons! Also look at the benefits of essential oils section as well!

  • Non-Toxic to Horses – Just like the human body, toxicity can be a big problem for our animals. Animals need clean and pure products.
  • Easy to use– Essential oils for horses can be used exactly in the same manner as with people. Horses can inhale the oil directly from the bottle or from your hand. They can be placed topically on the body or placed in their feed (if oil can be used as a dietary supplement).
  • Extremely Beneficial for Training – I mostly train young or green horses, or re-train problem horses. The emotional component is the most difficult portion and it is what makes me good at what I do. The oils are another tool for the tack box. I can cut through training issues faster than I ever could before.
  • Good for Riders too! – Riders are continually dealing with fears, insecurities, and nervous jitters. These emotions and others effect our horse on a daily basis. Oils can help riders "process" through many of these emotions and foster a synergistic relationship between horse and rider.

All of the oils on this website can be used via inhalation; however, read through the individual oil information on this website before you do decide how to use them. There are oils that I don't recommend for internal use, and of course there are oils you shouldn't use for certain conditions such as pregnancy.

Remember, its NOT the oil, it's really more about the purity of the oils. For instance, Raindrop and Equine Raindrop Techniques are performed with several oils that are considered by the British aromatherapists as "forbidden oils". But they also don't advocate the use of therapeutic grade oils.

Are there certain Types of Oil that We Need to Use for Home Remedies for Horses?

Good question! I only use therapeutic grade essential oils. Perfume quality or fragrant grade oils will not be effective. In fact, perfume quality oils can cause more harm than good because they contain 90-95% solvents!

Pure therapeutic grade oils contain the pure volatile oil of the plant and are distilled without any adulteration. Therefore, they are expensive to produce and are rarely used in common day products. Look at the price of Rose Essential Oil or Jasmine Absolute to get an idea of what it takes to produce these oils!

What are the Safety Concerns?

Most of the problems associated with using essential oils for horses stem from the fact that people are using perfume grade oils for therapeutic use. Or people simply are not using them correctly! So please do follow the safety information listed with each individual oil or blend.

How Do I Use Essential Oils as Home Remedies for Horses?

Aromatherapy for horses is similar to using them for people, so review the essential oil uses section to get more ideas on how to use the oils. Individual oils listed throughout this website contain safety information such as dilution as well as a animal section with some tips.

Please do adhere to the safety instructions as you would a human. And please read through the essential oils safety section as well.

How Do I Know which Oils to Use for Equine Aromatherapy?

Using the oils is a bit of a learning curve for sure, but the best thing you can do is look through the website and choose oils as you would for yourself.

There are sections specifically written for horses on the bottom of this page. You can also check the oil sections for people such as stress and discomfort.

How Do I Approach my Horse with an Essential Oil?

Very slowly and allow them to smell it out of the bottle or from your hand. Be careful they love the oils and will try to take it out of your hand!

How Do I Know if my Horse likes the Oil?

Watch your horse's reaction! Most horses will go right for the oil out of one nostril or even attempt to take the bottle so be careful! LOL They also may curl their lip (flehmen) in glee!

Normally, they will go to one nostril and then the other. Or they could even attempt to walk away to "process" the emotional component of the oil. Note that this does NOT mean the horse doesn't like the oil. They process very differently than people!

How Do I Apply the Oil?

I always allow all animals to smell the oil first, even from a far. Then, I may place a drop or two of oil on the forehead (third eye), over the ears, or pet from head all the way down the tail.

I also allow my horses to lick the oil off my hand if it is an oil safe for internal use. You can count on this when working with Peppermint Vitality oil for sure!

How Long Do I Use the Oil?

I have had horses that needed different oils the next time I worked with them and I have had some horses that forever love Peace & Calming essential oil blend! So just check, they will let you know! Follow your intuition.
