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.
We recently adopted two rescue horses out of state, which meant a 6-hour road trip for the horses. They came from the same rescue, but they had never been stabled together. These horses had each been abused before coming to the rescue, and one had severe trust issues with humans. I was concerned about the stress of hauling for such a long drive, along with the stress of putting these two horses together in a trailer for the first time.
We applied the Stress Away and Peace & Calming essential oil blends to the mare before loading and drove an hour to the next farm for the gelding. I then applied Stress Away to him too. He loaded right up and did much better than I had expected, as people tend to freak him out.
We stopped about 3 hours into the trip and did another application on both horses. They stood calmly in the trailer, bonded very quickly to each other, unloaded calmly and easily, and walked calmly into their new barn and stalls.
In all my experience with bringing new horses home, this has been the easiest transition ever! There was no pacing, running the fences, or constant neighing. I am thrilled at how they did.
The next day I used Relieve It on their legs for any stiffness. They did great, and we are continuing to use different essential oils on them in their new forever home with us.
