Horse sheath cleaning isn't always our favorite task to complete as horse owners. However, it is a necessary item to do if you have a gelding or stallion!
If you have a horse that doesn't like it to be done, then the first thing you need to do is use some oils for horse relaxing, calming and focusing. And honestly, I always do this step anyway just in case!

What Products that Contain Essential Oils can I use for Cleaning the Sheath?
This is absolutely my FAVORITE product to clean sheaths!
How to Use Thieves Essential Oil Cleaner?
Use about a half a cap or less of Thieves household cleanser in about a half gallon of warm water to clean the inside of the sheath. If you only have thieves oil then add several drops surfactant or a mild natural cleanser then add to a half gallon of water.
Make sure you are using gloves, and remove all the horse beans and smegma inside and out. You will know a horse bean; it's hard accumulated debris that can block the urethra and interfere with urine flow. Once this is done rinse thoroughly with water to remove any cleanser, gel or soap.
Clean the outside of the sheath using Thieves Cleaner or a combination of myrrh, rosemary and pure grade vegetable oil. Use about 5-10 drops (less is more) of myrrh and rosemary.
CAUTION: Remember if using just Thieves Oil to dilute at least 80:20 with lots of vegetable or coconut oil!
For maintenance, clean the sheath once per month and make sure the horse gets plenty of clean water and hay.Want to Purchase Thieves Oil or Cleaner?
