cptg-horseEducating horse owners to help their horses using essential oils!

Essential oils have a wide range of uses and applications for health and wellness.  When you purchase essential oils you are thinking of yourself, your family, your home, your pets, and your equine friends.  I have been using essential oils with our horses for since 2016.  So a bit about me …  my name is Teresa Timmerman and I have been involved with horses since 2002.  We (my husband and I, Gord) have a farm and equine boarding facility in Georgian Bluffs (Owen Sound), Ontario, Canada. We breed Quarter Horses. We are members of the AQHA, Silver Spur Saddle Club, Chelsey Saddle Club and a member of the Ontario Equestrian Federation.

I am an Essential Oil Health Coach Candidate with the Essential Oil Institute. I am a Certified AromaTouch® Technique Practitioner and I have developed a custom AromaTouch Technique Workshop for Equine that I teach throughout Ontario.  I have lectured at equine facilities and tradeshows throughout Ontario. I conduct workshops on over 30 different subjects with a speciality in equine and canine natural solutions using essential oils.

There are numerous applications for your equine friends.  When you think logically about our horses they know what to eat and not eat in their environments, naturally.  Where do essential oils come from, “nature – the earth”.

Safety Tips for Essential Oils

Even though essential oils are all-natural, there are some safety tips we should follow when using them for ourselves, our horses, or other pets:

  1. Purchase only 100% therapeutic-grade (tested) essential oils and follow directions on the label.  Obviously, I use dōTERRA.
  2. Essential Oils have therapeutic properties through simple inhalation.  Horses sense of smell is 500 times better than ours as humans.
  3. Essential oils are usually used diluted with carrier oils, such as coconut, fractionated coconut, olive, sunflower, or vegetable oil for topical applications.  For additional information on carrier oils.
  4. Never use in the eye, inside the nose, or ear canal.
  5. Just because a horse is a large animal does not mean you use more oils.  Essential oils are extremely concentrated.
  6. Please make sure essential oils are used properly with instructions being followed.
  7. Discontinue using an oil if you or your horse has a reaction (skin, respiratory, stomach).
  8. Consult a professional trained in essential oil use if you or the animal is pregnant.
  9. Note: If a horse turns their head away from an essential oil when you let them sniff it, they are showing you they do not prefer that oil.
