Herbal Horse Remedies: Lavender

Have you ever seen the fields of purple flowers letting of their pungent and heady smell? That's one of the hidden beauties of Lavender, but it has hidden secrets and uses.
Some which I use myself, after burning myself lavender oil quickly took away the pain.
I have great faith in this herb and its uses.
Lavender can be obtained as an essential oil as well as being available as dried flower tops.
Fresh Lavender is also sometimes used.
Lavender can be used to help a Horse relax as it seems to have a very relaxing effect, it is also claimed to stimulate circulation.
Ante-septic properties are also found in this herb.
This herb is very useful for treating insect bites and burns as I stated earlier, and has a numbing effect on local burns so it is very useful for treating sunburn and similar problems.
I have used Lavender as an insect repellent on my horses and I have had very good results with it.
One of the beauties of Lavender is that it can be used un-diluted.
Although I believe in the therapeutic and healing properties of herbs, care must be taken in the use thereof, as they are powerful compounds.
Lavender is second to none for burns.
It is antiseptic and analgesic and helps prevent scarring.
Good addition to a balm or salve for sore, tired muscles relieves inflammation and pain.
Take a sponge and wipe face, neck, legs, spine with lavender oil and witch hazel mixed in warm water.
The animal will relax and take in the soothing smell.
This mixture cleans the coat and soothes the animal.
