Liniments for Horses
As horse owners, we invest a lot of time and money for top of the line veterinary, dental, hoof care, nutritional supplements, alternative therapy, etc. Ensuring that your money is going to safe and effective liniments is just one more way to maintain and promote your horse’s health.
Horse Liniment Ingredients
By definition, a liniment is a liquid or lotion, especially one made with oil, for rubbing on the body to relieve pain. It often has both heating and cooling elements to increase circulation and reduce swelling. Many of the traditional horse liniment ingredients contain man-made chemicals, derived from a lab that have no health-promoting properties. They also often contain toxic chemicals, dyes, and fillers.
It is time to move on from this outdated way of thinking and go back to nature’s way. Mother nature has many plants and herbs with health-promoting properties with no side effects! Here at Equine Essential Wellness, we choose to utilize the wealth of health from essential oils. To keep it easy and simple, we prefer great therapeutic blends ready to use from Young Living. Both Ortho Ease and Ortho Sport contain all-natural ingredients and are safe and effective.
