Thieves essential oil blend was given its name because of a small group of thieves that used these oils to protect themselves from getting sick as they robbed the dead and dying during the plagues of 14th century Europe. This blend of oils is shown to be antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. It is highly effective when used at the onset of candida, thrush, and flu symptoms. It is used for abscesses, hoof rot, thrush, skin fungus, infections, ringworm, and laminitis. Weber State University studies have shown that, when diffused, Thieves kills 99.96% of microbes in as little as 12 minutes. Thieves Toothpaste, with added Thieves essential oil, makes a wonderful poultice for scratches, rain rot, and thrush.
Horses respond exceptionally well to essential oils. Although they are large, they often will respond greatly to even smaller amounts of essential oils. A common belief amongst animal lovers and animal professionals is that in the wild, all animals roam and find plants that contain beneficial essential oils that they need. Chewing and stripping bark from trees, rolling in certain plants, eating grass and leaves, smelling plants while grazing, and even wandering through certain aromatic plants all expose an animal to nature's wonderful plant oils. Even domesticated animals, such as cats and dogs, often eat grass as a way to soothe an upset stomach, and / or to make themselves vomit to rid themselves of whatever is upsetting their system.
