Rosemary Oil

Hello all!

Once again, I will be doing this post in bullets, as it is faster, and I have a senior project proposal to finish tonight! :)

  • First of all, this oil should be diluted well before use; it is very strong.
  • Carole Faith recommends that it not be used on pregnant mares or other horses that may have high blood pressure.
Aside from that, it can be used as...

  • Fly repellent mixes.
  • To treat lice.
  • A circulatory stimulant - it combats water retention, sluggish circulation, toxin buildup, and rheumatism.
  • To treat respiratory tract problems.
  • It blends well with lavender.
  • It's helps aid the immune system.
  • Promotes general health and well-being.
  • Aids concentration.
  • Combats mental fatigue.
  • Relieves conditions from nervous dispositions.
  • Antiseptic.
  • Hepatic (aids the liver)
  • Tonic
  • Benefits the stomach
  • Eliminates toxins by promoting sweating
  • Pain relief
  • Prevents buildup of microbial infections
  • Massage - increases localized circulation and warms the muscles
This oil is fairly inexpensive in comparison to others.

As usual, these facts are all taken from Carole Faith's Essential Oils for Horses, which can be found for sale on Amazon.com and has a lot of helpful information about using aromatherapy with horses besides just the properties of many different oils.
