Equine Raindrop Technique - 
Essential Oils for Horses

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

Equine Raindrop Technique using Essential Oils

This technique brings harmony back to the body by aligning energies and providing support.

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. For a complete overview of the technique and the oils used, please click here.

What is Equine Raindrop Technique?

Dr. Heather Mack, DVM is an advocate of the Raindrop Technique for oils for horses. She 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 support the horses mind and body.

I personally use Raindrop as an emotional release technique and understand that emotions are a very important component of your horses wellness!

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

Healthy Horse (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 occasional sore muscles after exercise, training or competition;
  • Complements other modalities such as acupuncture and chiropractor treatment;
  • Help release toxins (emotional and physical); and
  • Other horses around the barn will love the smell of the essential oils!

How is the Raindrop 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.

2.  On the coronet bands, use Oregano and Thyme where the meridians of the body end.

3.  Essential oils of basil, wintergreen, cypress, and peppermint are placed on the inside of the hind legs. A thumb roll technique is conducted on the leg over the spleen, liver and kidney meridians.

4.  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. Thumb roll and other techniques are also applied to the spine to stimulate energy pathways and allow the oils to go deeper into the tissue.

5. 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 thumb roll work 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 and dilution may be required. I always wait at least 24 hours to ride; but most horses will not have to take any time away from training.
