Humans have been benefitting from Aromatherapy for centuries, but what about our horses? Smell is a powerful sense- especially when you consider that horses that have about 500x times the number of smell receptors than humans. Horse instinct for survival relies on their smell to detect danger and move
towards water and food. But horses today also live under higher stress than in other times with pollutants and the demands we make on them. These stressors show up through moodiness, injuries and illness and not being able to offer their best. Smart owners use the power of smell to work for the benefit of their horse.
It’s a known fact, when bodies manage stress levels better, they stay healthier, perform better and even recover better. Consider the amount of money spent rehabbing a horse after a common injury- consider
the bills, lost time you cannot get back, and the time to rebuild them. Next consider just taking that ounce of prevention to skip or reduce all the ills. We can achieve this through complementing care of
Equine Aromatherapy proactively.
The Science of Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years. It involved using the correct selection of essential oils to improve health. It works by enhancing a body’s release of stress and tension
in the muscles and the whole body. Aromatherapy can have benefits in mood, reducing pain and discomfort as well as a benefit on organs if dealing with disease recovery and prevention. This is evidenced by a growing amount of scientific literature.
The Art and Science of caring for our horse has evolved a lot in recent years. Its great to know we can enhance our horse’s wellbeing with easy to incorporate methods that now cater to our Equines, not only to humans. Bellerophon Equestrian (www.bellerophonequestrian.com) is a Canadian global company
that specializes in creating effective Equine Aromatherapy blends that harmonize tested ingredients to target three key areas with your Horse to offer them to come in balance and to reduce the effects of stress. Our formulations are tested and proven to work on horses.
Bellerophon Equine Aromatherapy blends target core areas of focus and concern important for horse owners and their horse- 1) Performance 2) Moods and 3) Health concerns
Equine Aromatherapy, like diet, and exercise really works best if used regularly and a little goes a long way. Consider this a small extra step that done on a weekly basis is really an investment. It can help you
strengthen- the bond you have with your horse, and it improves your horses baseline ability to weather stress moving forward, so they reduce the likelihood of an injury or illness when and if it happens.
Equine Aromatherapy can also benefit horses through complementing recovery under care of a vet with a natural approach that includes touch and the effects of Equine Aromatherapy blends on the nervous
system. It is applied topically, not ingested and is safe for almost all horses except post-operation, on wounds. It should also be avoided in young foals and pregnant mares. Imagine something so simple and powerful using the power of your horses’ smell to create chemical changes in their system to aid
recovery and wellness.
Another great thing about Equine Aromatherapy is that you can include it with Equine Massage, include it in grooming, or use it through light touch or just breathing in.
To help, Bellerophon also gives you a complimentary Guide called “How to Use Aromatherapy” with your order of any Equine Aromatherapy blends that shares useful tips and tricks to be effective.
