Aroma Therapy


Aroma Therapy is the use of essential oils to improve your horse’s physical and emotional well-being.


Essential Oils affect bodily functions in different ways depending on their specific response to various issues. By using the correct oil a variety of conditions can often be successfully helped. They can stimulate, sedate and heal. Applied to the skin they pass through the dermal layers and into the bloodstream. They also have the ability to evaporate into the air allowing the aroma to reach the emotional center of the brain. A horse’s nose can smell and identify thousands of different chemical compounds. These are thought to be transferred into messages that are sent to various parts of the brain where mood and bodily function may be affected. 


  • I only use 100% pure therapeutic grade oils for compress and topical application.
  • Doses and dilution of essential oils and blends will vary depending on the degree and nature of the problem.
  • In most cases the essential oil (s) will stimulate the body’s own healing process.
  • Specific essential oils and blends can have antiseptic/ anti-inflammatory properties and may help reduce inflammation.
  • Common areas for use may include wounds, aches and sprains immune/ skin disorders, respiratory problems, digestive issues and emotional disorders.
Please Note:

Veterinary approval should be sought first before treatments with essential oils.
