Hi Nayana, I have a friend who has just moved herself and her 3 horses out to Australia. They arrived a week ago, having been in quarantine, various transporters, airplanes, holding place, then finally transported to their new home. They are a bit stressed, not surprisingly. What would be your first go to oils to help them? She is trying to find a practitioner to help, but hasn’t found any there. I recommended she contact you, which she may do, but maybe meanwhile you have a little advice I could pass on? Thanks
Hi Lesley, moving horses is a huge thing, as I know from experience. Essential oils to help settle them include cedarwood Himalaya (cedrus deodara), geranium (pelargonium graveolens), violet leaf absolute (viola odorata). But as usual, which one is best and which others can support will depend on character. I always add herbs for immune support and probiotics and other supplements, such as glutamine, to help rebalance the biome which inevitably will be thrown completely off by the travel and new environment. It takes at least 6 months for horses to settle after moving like that, and in that period they will need extra immune support. I do distance sessions if she wants further consultation with me.
