Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


Here is the formula I use when working around my horses:

* In a 32 ounce bottle, fill with water to the top
* Add 30 drops of Peppermint oil
* Shake well before using.

Note that it would be good to avoid spraying where it will get into the horses eyes. Also, be careful when spraying around any open cuts or wounds.

This mixture is great as the wind blows the spray all over me, and I get the added benefits too. It is non toxic and chemical free and one inexpensive bottle of Peppermint oil lasts for a long time.
