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.

My beautiful Arabian horse, Shakana, foundered. In horse terms, that means her feet hurt. It was to the point where she had to be in her stall with 6 inches of chips so she wouldn't be walking.

For an Arabian horse, how terrible! They like to be wild. They run like the wind with their tail and head up, feet never touching the ground. I was devastated. My beautiful horse was in so much pain.

I have been using oils for several years on myself and on my cat's abscesses, so now I thought to use them on Shakana. I rubbed her with Lavender to calm her. And on her feet I used Wintergreen, Helichrysum, and the PanAway oil blend.

I followed a daily routine, 2 to 3 times a day, rubbing her hooves, also on the soles (bottom of the hoof) massaging them with the oils, and putting on Lavender to calm her. With this glorious smell, her head down relaxed, she knew I was trying to make her feel better.

Within several weeks, I was able to let Shakana out of her stall and shortly thereafter, the pasture.

What a success!

helichrysum-oil - "...its flowers and leaves are the most used parts in the treatment of health disorders such as allergies, colds, cough, skin, liver and gallbladder disorders, inflammation, infections and sleeplessness... In vitro studies characterized Helichrysum as an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent. Its flavonoids and terpenes were effective against bacteria (e.g. Staphylococcus aureus), its acetophenones, phloroglucinols and terpenoids displayed antifungal action against Candida albicans and its flavonoids and phloroglucinols inhibited HSV and HIV, respectively.... Regarding Helichrysum italicum in vivo activity, the highlight goes to ...the anti-inflammatory properties exhibited by its flavonoids, acetophenones and phloroglucinols, as seen in animal models."Link
