Oils to Use with Horses

Good morning, people! Today I wanted to share with you some oils you can use on your animals. For me, I use them on my horse.

The first set of oils I want to share with you are oils you can put in your horse’s water. The Peppermint is great to help cool your horse down during a hot day or after a hard workout. Lemon is good for your horse’s overall health. My horse loves drinking both!

The next set of oils are to use if your horse is sick. Thieves is good for if they are fighting an infection, or just are feeling sick. DiGize is great for stomach problems. If your horse is prone to colic- this is the oil you need to have on hand! Just apply 3-4 drops onto their stomach or put some in their water.

Oils for sickness

Aroma Siez and PanAway are amazing with pain and tight muscles! Both are great for both muscle/joint pain and muscle tightness. But Aroma Siez is the best for tight muscles. If you’ve worked your horse extra hard one day- just reward him with a massage with Aroma Siez (using carrier oil!).

Oils for pain

Your horse got into a fence? Got a magical scratch? We know things like that happen with horses. Theses two oils are amazing with skin problems. Whether its a scratch, bug bite, or some kind of skin condition, these oils are perfect!

Last, but certainly not least, the oils I use with training and calming nerves. Since my horse is young, and I am training her from the ground up, these two oils have been an invaluable resource. Especially Stress Away. I personally like Peace & Calming on myself, but my horse is partial to Stress Away. A lot of times, I put Peace & Calming on me and then Stress Away on her. We have a much better day that way! (I apply the oils on her forehead & temples and her whithers and on my wrists.)

You might be wondering why I use oils on my horse. It’s because I care about her. If I don’t want chemicals and nasty stuff in and on me, why would I want to do that to my horse? I also have used oils on my cats, and my family has used them on their dogs and goats, too! Want to learn more, or have any questions about using oils for animals? Just shoot me an email at hannah.d.mooney@gmail.com.

Also, I make my own bug spray for my horse. It’s the same exact one I use for us! I just mixed up another bottle of it and keep it in the barn. You can get the recipe HERE.

  1. I just read your blog about the young living oils that you use for your horse. I am getting ready to take mine on his first trail ride and I want everything to good smooth and relaxing for him. I just had a few questions. How many drops of the oil do you place in his water for him to be calm and stress free? And what other place would you put it? Any other information would be great!
