5 Simple ways to use Thieves™ at the barn.....
Thieves™ Essential Oil Blend form Young Living™ is one of my go tos at the barn. With the essential oil powerhouses of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary, ya can't go wrong! 

Here are 5 of my favorite ways I use it at the barn:

#1 Get rid of the gunk hoof spray
Add 30 drops to a 16 oz. spray bottle, add 2 TBS apple cider vinegar, (glass or stainless steel preferred, if you use plastic, use a high quality, chemical resistant plastic such as PET, as essential oils degrade plastic)  fill up with water, shake well before each use, spray on bottom of hooves after picking out. 

#2 Defunk your brushes 
Add 10 drops to a TBS of salt in a 5 gallon bucket, fill with warm water, let the salts dissolve and soak  your brushes/combs for an hour or 2.

#3 Immune Boost
Add 1-5 drops of Thieves Vitality™ to your horses grain ration or hay cube once per day. If you do a weekly mash, that's a perfect opportunity as well. 

#4 Mouth Wellness
Dilute in coconut oil and rub on gums once per week. I like to add a good size dollop of coconut oil to my palm, add a drop, swirl it around, and then rub on gums. 

#5 Cleanse the air by diffusing
If you have electricity, run your ultrasonic diffuser in the tack room or aisles. If not, add a drop or 2 to wooden clothespins and clip in areas, or add to cotton balls and place in strategic areas (out of reach of your horses-tho!) Add a few drops to the cardboard roll in the toilet paper in the bathroom for the freshest smelling restroom around!
