A Natural Horse Ointment
that Supports Healing and Healthy Skin and Paws

Horse ointment is a necessity around the barn. It seems like our equine companions are constantly scraping themselves in the stall or paddock! And ointment is our mainstay.

But these days my mainstay at the barn is therapeutic grade essential oil. And, even better, a natural ointment that is made with essential oils.

I used to use those horse ointments that everyone uses at the barn. But it always bothered me that the ingredients were not listed on the container or when they were, there was a partial listing!

Can anyone tell me why for human grade products everything contained in the product has to be listed on the container; but when it comes to animal products it doesn't? Personally, I find this unacceptable!

And when they do list the ingredients, I find them full of synthetic chemicals. It was so frustrating for me; even the "natural ointments" contain cheap filler ingredients that cause skin problems for humans.

Why should I Use Essential Oils and Unadulterated Ointment?

Like our hair, soap and other personal products they contain chemicals that do not belong in our body (or our animal's body). Most horse ointment contains petroleum products that don't help to heal our wound.

Petroleum products and their derivatives actually clog the skin pores because they are larger then the skin molecule. In other words, you can't fit a square peg in a round hole.  When these products are applied to our skin or our animals skin they sit on top and clog the pores.

Natural and unadulterated substances, such as essential oils, on the other hand, quicken and support the healing process. They have a lipid structure that allows them to penetrate deep into skin tissues to heal and regenerate skin cells.

What Other Ingredients are in Commercial Ointment?

Here are just a few other ingredients that are contained in horse ointment (and shampoo, liniment and fly spray). Most of these products produce skin irritation, sensitization, and are linked to allergies, cancer and/or immune suppression. Here they are:

  • Petrolatum
  • Mineral Oil
  • Propylene glycol
  • Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)
  • Benzalkonium Chloride
  • Yellow #5; FD&C Blue #1
  • DMDM Hydantoin
  • Sodium Laurel Sulphate (SLS)
  • Triethanol amine (DEA)

Out of 15 ointment products, only one did not contain a petroleum product and they all contained at least one of the ingredients listed above. And at least five of the products I looked at were considered "natural ointments".

Horse Ointment - Animal Scents My Favorite!

Is there a Real Natural Ointment?

Yes, there is! Animal Scents Ointment is a fantastic healing salve that you can use for minor scrapes and boo boos. It contains several therapeutic grade essential oils. Great for protecting delicate paws and moisturizing coronet bands and hooves.

I use it to seal in cuts, especially if I have applied other oils first. It also is for human use; and I have used it many times! Keep it in your Horse First Aid Kit for sure!

What Essential Oils Can we Use for Equine Boo Boos?

Essential oils are perfect to support natural skin healing. They also can be used on horses, cats, dogs or any other animal.

They contain all the properties we want for healing and support healthy skin regeneration.

They also have many benefits, not side effects.

The best thing is that the same oils can be used for animals as for humans! Although, cats do metabolize things differently; so if you own a cat make sure you read through that section.

Nan's Last Word for this Section

Horse ointment, like our other human and animal products, does not have to contain harmful chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Although, we may pay slightly more for products that do not contaminate our bodies, our animal's bodies and our environment, in the long run, we save money because we are all healthier and happier!
