Horse Fly Spray
In a clean 32 ounce fly spray bottle, add clean water and the above oils. Just hold the bottle upside down and let the drops come out without shaking. Shake well before spraying! It's great not to breath toxic chemicals and have toxic spray all over your body. Never allow liver toxic and respiratory damaging chemicals to poison your body or your horses body!
Do not spray directly into the horses eyes.
YOU'LL LOVE THE WAY THIS SMELLS! -- Susan
When the thermometer temperatures are on the rise, I let Peppermint Essential Oil cool me and my horse down.
1) Sponge Baths: I love to put just a drop or two of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils into a bucket of cool water and then give the horses a sponge bath in the mornings. Peppermint and Lavender are my favorite oils to use. The horses stay cool, calm and relatively bug free all day, even in roasting weather!
2) Drinking Water: Add a few drops to the horse's water trough. Start with a single drop so they get used to the taste for a few days. Most horses LOVE the taste of Peppermint! Work your way up to a few drops in the water trough. This adds a refreshing, cooling effect that lasts longer than plain water.
3) Shampoo Baths: Need A Cool, Clean Horse? Add 1-2 drops of Peppermint to Animal Scents Shampoo for a cooling, soothing, chemical free bath. v 4) Misting: Spritz the stall, Horse Trailer, YOU! Add 1-10 drops of Peppermint to a 4 ounce glass Spritzer bottle mixed with Distilled water, Aloe Vera Juice or Witch Hazel for a hydrating, refreshing lift.
5) Cool Ice: Freeze a container of water with a few drops of Peppermint to make a big Peppermint Ice Cube. Use this in the water trough, water bucket or feed dish. For variation, add in some horse treats, carrots, apples, etc to encourage your horse to go for the cube!
6) Cool Feet: Dab a few drops of Peppermint around the coronet band.
7) Cool Feed: Use a few drops right in your horses feed, mix with a bit of water. Start with just a drop so they get used to the taste. Increase the amount over several feedings as they adjust to the taste.
These are just a few of my favorite ways to help keep horses cool in the summertime heat. -- Sandy Rakowitz
YEA!!!! We are so happy we found Young Living Oils. I hope we always get these results. I will get the tapes back to you ASAP. Thank You for letting me borrow them. Do you have any other Video Tapes on Oils. If so can I borrow them. Also I got the Trauma Life in for Dooger and I put it on his forehead, behind his ears and I also let him smell it. I gave him a couple of days off and I'm going to ride him tonight. I'll let you know how he does. Thanks for all your help.
P.S. Poo Bear placed 3rd in barrels last weekend.
The colt went to Ohio State Univ. Vet. Hosp. the first of June. He had surgery for sciatic nerve problems (not a torn ligament as was originally diagnosed). He was not given a very good prognosis. After being there for 3 weeks, he developed an infection in the bone which was spreading rapidly. After 2 weeks of antibiotics the infection was still pretty severe. They were talking of putting him down.
Thank goodness my friend decided to bring him home and go back to using our wonderful oils on him. The first day home his temperature was still 101. ( It had been ranging between 101 and 103 ). That night she used Thieves along his spine. By morning his temperature was down to 99 !! Two days later I did a Raindrop Technique on him, ( my first experience with any animal and what an experience that was!! :) He definitely let us know when the oils got too "warm". ) My friends are still calling me Dr. Doolittle !!
All joking aside, it really was a rewarding experience. He is such a beautiful little animal. That has been two weeks ago, and they have been applying several oils each day since then. Now the good news. He went back to O.S.U. Vet. Hosp. yesterday for a check-up. They could not believe he was the same colt. He had improved so much. He is still not completely out of the woods yet though. There is still a little bit of infection there, but they were so impressed with his improvement, they asked to do a video of him for their research.
How blessed we are to have these wonderful products, and to have the knowledge that Dr. Young has passed on to us enabling us to help other people (and animals)!
I performed a simple Raindrop Technique using the 9 oils in sequence and also included Copaiba while my friend was on the phone to our vet. The vet suspected some degree of radial nerve damage so we were quite concerned
When we finished the Raindrop my horse was able to weight bear and walk, although slowly and with lameness, into a smaller paddock for ongoing treatment (including essential oil therapy!). She has since fully recovered. -- Elizabeth
The second time we applied the oil we started to hear movement in the gut, by the third application we had results in the form of manure. The vet arrived, the horse was calm and not in pain. The vet check was normal and no action was needed. -- Sparkle
When I leaned about the oils for animals, I tried Peace & Calming. When the farrier said he was on his way, I would put about three drops of Peace & Calming in the palm of my hand, and stir it 3 times, rub my hands together and put one in front of her nose to breathe in and the other hand I would rub gently all over her head.
She stood so well for her feet to be trimmed, that now when it is time for a trimming, I do this, and we don't even have to tie her, we just simply hold her with the lead rope. The last trimming, the farrier commented that she was the easiest of my 4 horses to trim. And the other 3 are always pretty good. -- Ilieen
I recently took back an old job I had few years back, I live and work right here 24/7. It is a saddle club and have several different horses and owners. When the ferrier came last week, I found that the horses were stressed big time and the ferrier filled me in on each of their behaviors.
I sent my daughter to get the Peace & Calming, in a few short minutes I had seen enough. I put a few drops on my hands and simply let them smell it as I led them into the barn, as I stood holding them as the ferrier did his job, they would turn there heads to get there noses in my hand. It was amazing! This was a dream come true for the ferrier and he wants to order a case!!!
One of the geldings that usually pulls the ferrier and whoever is holding him full length of the barn several times and back, and is a very big horse, stood calm as could be and after being in the turn out afterwards, stood in a daze for about 20 minutes, he drank lots of water for the next few hours too. He is always coming to me and nudging my hands, I think he wants P&C all the time! I just have to think of a way to do this without me getting so relaxed from it too!!(smiling) -- Cindy
Then I was introduced to the essential oils, his lucky day! If he even shows a hint of colic symptoms, I immediately give him about 10 drops of Di-Gize internally, and mix a few drops with V6 oil and rub externally on his tummy. Usually he feels better within 15 minutes. Sometimes, a second dose is required, but not often. No more midnight vet calls! It works like a charm for this horse, and saves us all some anxiety.
He is fairly small, so for a larger horse, I would increase the amount. We use a small syringe and mix in a little molasses and put it on the back of his tongue. Some people just pull out the lower lip and drop it in, but this guy is too resistant for me to be able to do it that way! -- Marylee
My horse had bowed a tendon, that is the tendon sheth tore. It leaves a big visable bump on the leg. Having read the Lemongrass could help tissue regenerate I set to applying Lemongrass to the legs every day. I wanted to use things that don't cause distress, so I did this with out using gloves myself.
The leg now shows hardly a trace of the bow and the extra plus was my fingers regained mobility and lost the soreness that had been looking like arthritis. I love YL Lemongrass oil. -- Jeannie
I came out a little later to check on her. She hadn't eaten much of her grain, and was lying down again. She showed no signs of colic or any other specific ailment. Maybe just an old lady having an off day. When I came out to check on her Friday morning, she was lying down near the hay ring. I could tell she had been up and down during the night and eating some hay. She had some trouble getting to her feet, finally made it on the second try. Walked into her pen and before long was down again. I took some feed and placed it in front of her, she began eating.
I gave her some more Di-Gize and about 10 drops Occhoa in her lower lip. I decided to do a Raindrop on her. This was the first time doing a Raindrop on a horse lying down. I did not put any oils on her feet or legs as I was working alone on a loose horse. I applied the Valor on her withers and base of tail and did the holding procedure. Then applied Valor to her pole. Next I began applying the regular Raindrop oils in their order. I just used the ends of my fingers to catscratch the oils into her along the spine. No other procedures. I call this a Progressive Raindrop since at the start the horse was lying down. After the 5th oil she got up and began walking across the pen. I would tell her whoa she would stop. I would apply an oil, rub it in, and she would walk off again. This happened with each oil. At the end of the Raindrop she had made it all the way across the pen. When I saw that she was a little more steady on her feet, I tied her in a shady spot for a while.
After 30 minutes or so, I untied her and left her in the pen for the day. She had grass, hay, and water available. At the evening feeding she was feeling much better. Was ready for her feed and had a brighter look about her.
Saturday morning she was waiting impatiently for her feed, nickered when she saw me. I turned her out in the pasture for the day. She came in for the evening feeding as usual.
It is now November 2010 and has been almost a year since this happened. She has had no symptoms since. -- Judy
The next morning the swelling had reduced by 50%. These three oils have strong anti-inflmmatory properties. -- Elizabeth
I apply Purification which disinfects and cleanses the lesion and also repels the flies (for up 12 - 24 hours. I also apply Thieves for its antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-infectious properties. This works well to aid prompt healing and minimize swelling/lameness which can result from greasy heel. -- Elizabeth
We have a colt that got into a wire fence and cut her hind leg down to the bone and tendon ripping all the flesh and hide off the leg from fighting to get out of the fence which she did causing all that damage.
We put Peace & Calming on her to calm her when we caught her so we could doctor her and see how bad it was. I have never seen a colt that had not had a halter on before that didn't fight after we caught her. Peace & Calming did a great job. We laid her down and she just laid there and let us work on her without even a struggle in trying to get up. Our neighbor who is a rancher and has worked with animals all his life said we should put her down as she would never grow the flesh or skin back, let alone any hair and would always be lame.. My daughter called the vet and she said the same thing. Even my husband thought so too ,that there wasn't any chance in saving her leg without her being lame and in pain all the time..
I said no, lets give her a chance because we had another horse that fallen through a cattle guard and had took all the hide and meat down to the shin bone off and that all healed back. You can not see where it had happened now.
So we set out cleaning it up by washing it out with the Thieves Cleaner because it was really dirty. ( A cap full in a gallon of water). Then we applied Ortho Sport all over the area inside and out. ( Ortho Sport has great antibacterial, and anti-viral properties). It helps to combat the damaging effect that had been done. Thieves around the outside of the wound, Melrose inside the wound. Then the Animal Scents ointment on top of the wound and wrapped the leg. It had cut about a good 5' to 6' long strip off the back of her leg. Again the neighbor and vet thought that she would be lame the rest of her life ,(IF SHE EVER HEALED). They said with the tendon exposed it would dry up and shrink causing her to be lame.
Well to make a long story short, she recovered and all hair has grown back except right at the top which is hard to see where the scar begins. The neighbor was so surprised that the flesh grew back over the tendon and new skin along with the hair. It took a long time but we never gave up using the oils and Ortho Sport and Animal Scents ointment with every bandage change you could see it healing which saved her life.
Several years back we had a stallion that had somehow cut the his front leg pretty deep just above the hoof. When we first saw that he was hurt he was almost packing his foot as he walked, it hurt him that bad. We caught him to find out what was going on and his foot was all infected and swollen. All I had at that time was Ortho Sport in the barn so I saturated it and left him in the corral for the night. The next morning with more oils and the Animal Scents ointment to take care of him we headed for the barn. When we got there we were shocked to see that he was walking around the corral without a limp. Not believing what we were seeing we couldn't wait to check his foot out. The swelling was gone and so was the infection, just over night from using Ortho Sport . I would not have believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes that Ortho Sport could take care of that problem with just application over night. So you can see how important that it is to use Ortho Sport for anything.
When my husband Blaine and I went camping and we had nice horseback ride to get into where we were planning on staying. It was almost dark and Blaine took care of the horses and I started the fire so I could cook supper. Blaine came back and set up the tent as I cooked and when we finished with the meal Blaine went to check on the horses. He came back and said that my horse Snowball was not acting right she kept laying down and wanted me to come and see for myself. I went with him and she was down and then she got back up and laid down again. We both knew she was in trouble. A horse doesn't do that unless they are colicing. Blaine caught her and I got my oils as I don't go anywhere with out them. I listened to her stomach and there was no sound at all. I got the Di-Gize and I saw that I only had about 5 drops left in the bottle. I gave that to Snowball inside the lower lip and rubbed Ortho Sport with Peppermint in it, to help relax the muscles. Blaine was walking her around and around to keep her from laying down and rolling which could twist a gut. He stopped and I listened again and I heard movement once. So we knew that something was starting to work. I knew if I just had more Di-Gize I could save her. I put Peppermint on the frogs of the front feet and Blaine kept walking her. By now it was pitch dark and there was no way to get her out, she couldn't make it that far. When Blaine stopped again, I listened and there was a little more rumbling and she was passing gas. I got to thinking, man I wished I had checked the Di-Gize before we went on the trip, then it came to me. The oils have a frequency and that frequency is still in the bottle. So I added some water to the bottle and shook it up and said a prayer and when Blaine came by again I gave this to her insider her lip. As Blaine started walking her, she cut a big one. WOW, I thought. I did it again and this time she had a bowel movement. I knew then she would make it.
I gave her another bunch of Di-Gized water as well as the Ortho Sport and soon she had full active going on in her stomach and she had another bowel movement. Blaine had been walking her around for 4 hours. We tied her up close to the tent so we could hear her if anything went wrong and went to bed.
I know beyond a doubt she would have died that night if I had not had my oils with me. She was fine the next morning and was hungary as a horse.
Polly another one of our horses had to have hysterectomy and after we brought her home she coliced. Blaine called the Vet. and he gave her a shot to relax the muscles and some mineral oil. Then he left. Later Blaine came to the house and said its not working for Polly, you need to use the oils. So I went down to the barn and listened to her stomach and there wasn't any sound at all and she kept wanting to lay down. I applied 20 drop Di-Gize insider her lower lip. Taking Ortho Sport and squirting a hand full in my hand and adding Peppermint to it to relax the stomach muscles I rubbed all around the flank and stomach. Then Blaine started to walk her in about two minutes she started to pass gas. I gave her some more Di-Gize and Ortho Sport and in 10 minutes she had a bowel movement. Fifteen minutes later she and was fine and did not lay down again. Blaine said I am not going to call a Vet again I'll just call on you. So as you can see from the experience we have had, our oils are right there to take care of the problem. Thank you God and Thank you Young Living for teaching us how to use God's pure oils. Not only can we care for our family we can take care of animals too.
