Choosing the proper horse oil to treat conditions like sunburn, insects, etc. is essential for helping maintain comfort. Oils are designed to relieve itching and help horses heal from painful insect bites and other irritants. Applying this oil to areas of irritation and hair loss can improve healing time and soothe the horse’s sensitive skin. Balms to relieve itching can shorten healing time as they reduce the horse’s natural desire to rub the sore area.
Restoring balance to the roots of the horse’s coat and improving healthy skin can reduce the effects of rubbing which can lead to hair loss. Soothing lotion can help bring comfort to the horse and return its skin to the proper biological balance. Adding a spray-on or lotion based balsam to your gooming routine can prevent irritation or heal wounds and rough patches.
