Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was graciously invited to be part of a healing retreat of Methodist pastors one hot August in the Upper Mississippi region where I would present the Healing Oils of the Bible class. The retreat was located at a beautiful horse property where they happened to be running a seminar for new horse owners and their horses to work with through the usual issues.

Imagine an indoor arena full of equines and humans, all their learned habits, biases and fears smoldering in the humid heat. Someone always has to go out and buy that pretty high spirited Arab, another horse was head shy, another fought being mounted by the rider... and no doubt, the humans were as afraid of getting hurt as the horses. It was an emotional melting pot.

I chatted with the instructor during breakfast and mentioned how one of our oil blends might help things flow more constructively for everyone and she asked if I would speak to the class and demonstrate before they began the day. I mentioned how humans and horses clearly telepath every emotion, and quickly develop learned responses that can become frustrating to work through.

There must have been 12 horses and riders, and each came forward for a drop of Valor (blend) which they offered to the horse to scent, then rubbed on the horse's muzzle, perhaps around ears... if the horse wanted it. Then another drop for the rider to apply to the back of their neck and inhale. This to promote clear and fluid communication between horse and rider. The rest was up to fate.

I concluded with, "See how this works, I'll look forward to hearing about it later." As I headed out for the day, one student (a doctor as it was) pulled up and asked how long the oils would last? I replied, "You tell me... tonight!"
Later that evening, the doctor bellowed, "I sure wish you'd come back around 1 pm, cause that's when those oils wore off. Four hours. And the seminar went on for another 4-5 hours in the heat. Apparently it got pretty intense. Whatever issue showed up with either horse or rider, that's what they worked with. It takes a lot of honesty, courage and energy to move beyond the fear and build on that trust.

Imagine that one drop of Valor would last on an 800 to 900 lb horse for four hours. Mostly I find four hours to be the average time of potent response, though Valor does act as a foundation all day long, and it's an excellent way to end the day and de-program for sleep.

Fun stuff. Maybe you know someone who works with horses in some way who would be willing to experiment and give you feedback, and I am certain it will all be good!!

Best Wishes,
