Aromatherapy for Horses: To use essential oils with your horse, start by wiping and cleaning out your horse's
nostrils with a damp cloth. Put a few drops of The InBalance
Horse essential oil blend into the palm of your hand. Rub your
hands together and rub them in and around the horse's clean
nostrils. Rub the corners of the horse's lips with the heel
of your hand while your fingers are inside the horse's nostrils
to release endorphins.
Massage for Horses: The InBalance Horse essential oil
blend may be lightly used with massage too. When I find a slightly
swollen or hot lesion on the horse I massage it and then place
a dot of the essential oil blend on the affected area to complete
the healing. I also use it after clearing a horse of negative
forces by placing a few tiny dots of essential oil down the
mane line and spine. You may also gently massage your oily hands
around the horse's face and ears but be careful and avoid the

FAQs about Essential
did aromatherapy originate?
The 5,000 year old science of extracting essential oils is one
of the earliest forms of medicine. The Egyptians used Frankincense,
Sandalwood, Rose, Calendula and many other plant extracts in
their day-to-day practices of medicine and worship. We have
learned through recorded history that Frankincense is one of
the essential oils used to treat anxiety and grief. Chamomile
is used for its soothing skin properties, Lavender is a relaxant,
while Rosemary is a stimulant.
are essential oils?
essential oils are components of a plant's immune system. They
are most often extracted by steam distillation. The aromatic
liquids that result contain between 500 and 2,000 compounds
and vary slightly from crop to crop depending on growing conditions.
do aromas affect the body?
all know that animals are very receptive to smell. Smell is
the most powerful and the most instinctual of all our senses.
Scientists say that our sense of smell is inborn, rather than
acquired because new born infants, even before they have tasted
food, screw up their faces at unpleasant food odors. There are
approximately 30 million smell (olfactory) receptors in each
of our nostrils. These receptors send messages to the brain's
olfactory bulb where the smell is analyzed. From here the message
travels to the limbic system of the brain, the area of the brain
that is responsible for arousal, motivation, emotions and memory.
What other ways do essential oils affect
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Its purpose is to
protect the body from unwanted toxins. With the ability to absorb
and expel, it makes sense to use natural products. Some essential
oils are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, or anti-spasmodic.
Essential oils may help to repair tissue, rejuvenate the skin,
improve circulation, balance hormones and break down mucous
in the respiratory system.
manufacturers and industry use pure essential oils?
Yes and no. Essential oils are used extensively in the food,
pharmaceutical, cosmetic and perfume industry. However, aromas
or scents commonly used in commercial products and by industries
are termed Fragrances. They are often artificially altered,
extended and sometimes adulterated. These practices are used
to create consistency and to extend the volume of an essential
use pure essential oils rather than artificially stabilized
Pure essential oils in their natural state are more suited to
achieving specific effects-somewhat like herbology. The key
to aromatherapy is that our bodies respond to the differences
among the natural variances in order to avoid immunity.
