Horse Whisperer Essential Oil Blend
Strength of Aroma:
A lovely woodsy scent with a soft floral undertone
Do not use if animals are pregnant or under 10 weeks old. For use with dogs/horses only. Dilute for skin application. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Just like humans, dogs and horses can develop fear and anxiety disorders after a traumatic experience. Trauma is especially common in rescue animals but can also occur during events we may not consider challenging, such as forced weaning, continuous use of ill-fitting tack, etc. This blend helps to calm and comfort animals while supporting their emotional healing process.
While Horse Whisperer was created specifically with horses in mind, it is also safe and effective for dogs who may struggle with similar issues.
Diffuse using 1-2 drops per 100 mL of water for 5-10 minutes every few hours. Passive diffusion is also a great option.
For topical application dilute to 0.25-2% depending on the weight and species of your animal. Apply the diluted blend to the upper inner foreleg, chest, or back of the neck.
When using essential oils with animals it is important to create a positive association with the oil. You can do this by applying the oil to yourself for the first few days of usage. This will allow your animal to begin to associate the blend with his/her person. When you are ready to apply the blend to your animal or begin active diffusion you can reinforce the positive experience by doing something they love, like giving them their favorite treat or using a massage application before bedtime.
This blend is intended for use with dogs and horses only. Do not diffuse around or use this blend topically on cats, birds, reptiles, rodents, etc.
Horse Whisperer Linen Spray
What you'll need:
- 18-36 drops of Horse Whisperer
- 1.5 ounces of water
- 0.5 ounces of everclear
- Empty spray bottle
Measure out water and everclear in separate measuring cups. Mix essential oils into everclear and then add water in slowly. Pour into an empty spray bottle. Spray a horse’s linens or a dog’s bed lightly and allow to dry.
*Note: Everclear is used in this recipe to allow the essential oils to emulsify properly and to help with preservation. If you do not want to use everclear then an emulsifier and preservative would be necessary. Allow linens to dry before bedtime. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
