Are you interested in using essential oils with your horse and don’t know where to start? Well you aren’t the only one!

There is so much contradictory information regarding essential oils and what to use but here are some RED FLAGs to watch out for when using essential oils with your horse.

The Quality of the Essential Oils

Quality is important

Make sure your oils are THERAPEUTIC GRADE Essential oils.

It should say on the bottle.

Oils purchased at grocery stores and department stores may not be therapeutic grade oils. If you are unsure, check the bottle it should say therapeutic grade.

Oils of inferior grade, at best, will have no effect on your horse and at worst may cause an allergic reaction. It may not be from the oil, but rather from the synthetic products that are used by some companies to thin out and stretch the oils.

Essential oils should be backed up by third party testing

Essential oils should be tested to ensure their purity and their ability to meet testing standards. Essential oils suppliers test each shipment of essential oil to ensure the oil they receive from their supplier meets their specific requirements.

Your supplier of essential oils should be able to identify that their oils are tested to maintain a quality product.

Expensive is not always better

Essential oils can be expensive. That is to say if you are getting good quality oils without any synthetics or additives mixed into the bottle. This means that good quality essential oils will cost more than poor quality substitute.

Rose oil, for example, takes approximately 250 pounds of rose blossoms to produce 1 oz – 30 ml – of rose essential oil. This is one of the most expensive oils.

It also means that more expensive does not always equal better quality. It just means they are charging more.
