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.

One of my mares is prone to greasy heel a dermatitis-like skin lesion that is usually caused by the same bacteria that results in rainscald, typically affecting the heels and the back of pasterns. This subsequently attracts flies and has the risk of infection.

I apply Purification which disinfects and cleanses the lesion and also repels the flies (for up 12 - 24 hours. I also apply Thieves for its antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-infectious properties. This works well to aid prompt healing and minimize swelling/lameness which can result from greasy heel.
