This comprehensive guide is designed to help those who wish to know how to use essential oils on their horses and covers everything from profiles of the oils themselves, what utensils to use and the conditions that can be treated. Essential oils are used to treat sweet itch and other skin problems, mud fever, strained muscles and tendons, respiratory ailments, digestive and emotional problems, to ward off flies and much, much more. The guide also shows massage sequences that are easy to understand and can be undertaken by the most novice horse owner, as well as providing essential oil chemistry profiling and giving details of where you can purchase everything you would need. In an age when the world at large is looking for less invasive, gentler routes to health and well-being for their animals, especially horses, this guide is an illuminating, thought-provoking work that should be part of every stable yard and equine home.
