Doctoring with Essential Oils

Well I have been trying to do this post since Thanksgiving, thanks to many false starts because of my lovely computer it has taken this long.....success well kind of, there was more to this post but for some reason it won't let me do them together. At any rate this post is dedicated to Shirley and Beamer. Beamer has a touch of Thrush right where Shirley has her hoof pick. Shirley has been using Essential Oils for some time now, she uses them for many different ailments and I would say with almost if not all instances she has had a 100% success rate. The following pics are of Shirley appling a few different oils to Beamers front feet. If you would like to know what each of them do you need to ask Shirley because I can't remember them all.(Ride A Good Horse)





Here she finishes up with Animal Scents Ointment which has a wide array of Essential Oils in it.

When I talked to Shirley the day of their Auction she said Beamers Thrush was pretty much gone, so again the oils appear to have done a good job. I also use Essential Oils for a lot of different ailments as well. We used them on Jake when he hurt his leg ( took care of infection) Shirley used them on a filly of mine a few years back( to long a story to tell here) but with mega success. I use one on myself for the frequent headaches I have developed ( Deep Relief - a mix of
oils) This stuff works so well I haven't taken a store bought pill since. So if you are interested in trying something untraditional for you or your animal ailments give these essential oils a try. Shirley is also a distributor and can give you a lot of good info on the subject.

That is really neat and an area I am not terribly familiar with.

By the way we need to chat about what you want me to do with all the horse hair of yours I have.

Shirley got me using essential oils as well, the deep relief is a favorite as well as the peppermint .The purification oil worked very well cleaning up Andee's wound this spring , and Phoenix's abscess

The first bottle is a Thieves antiseptic spray, I also used Theives oil which is really effective at killing bacteria. I treated him about every 2-3 days.
