Essential Oils

We only use the finest ingredients of pure essential oils blended in our bases of aloe vera gel or Epsom salts, both with exceptional powers in their own right.   Essential oils are derived from plants which are imbued with incredible natural protecting, healing and nourishing properties.

The use of essential oils is one of the fastest growing forms of natural healthcare. When considering our oils,  we chose those that offered the greatest benefit by working with the whole horse, in body, mind and spirit whilst addressing specific conditions we wanted to help.

Our oil products are applied topically and penetrate the skin by diffusing through the hair follicles and sweat glands.

They also permeate between the skin cells by combining with the skins lipids (fats) and thereby enter the dermis (they layer of skins beneath the epidermis).  Once in the dermis they can enter the blood capillaries and lymph vessels which then transport them around the rest of the body by the circulatory system.

Essential oils are known to stimulate the immune system response and aid the body in fighting infection. It has also been shown that essential oils stimulate phagocytosis, or the ability of white blood cells to dispose of invading bacteria.  Many oils also have a blood purifying action that works by stimulating the various processes of elimination. This cleansing action means that toxins and metabolic residues which may otherwise lead to a variety of diseases are removed from the system, an effect that is very beneficial in many chronic conditions such as joint degeneration.   A psychological action of essential oils is upon the endocrine system, the glands that regulate hormones, reproduction, growth, metabolism or response to stress.

 

Our products are in general non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing and non-phototoxic and can all be used individually or as an entire product range.

 

Our products do not replace Veterinary care, our products can be applied as a complimentary therapy.
