Rain Rot

The natural cure to get rid of Rain Rot

Essential Oils Combat Rain Rot

In a clean, empty spray bottle, (mine is 28oz.) mix together:

  1. 1/2 cup of any healthy, natural "carrier" oil. I used light olive oil. *I love coconut oil but only in warm months as the coconut oil coagulates in cool temperatures and will stop up your bottle. But in the summer, use it! It's wonderful!)

  2. 1 cup of vinegar (either white or apple cider vinegar will work)

  3. 40 drops of 100% pure Citronella essential oil

  4. 40 drops of 100% pure Lavender essential oil

  5. 40 drops of 100% pure Eucalyptus essential oil

  6. 20 drops of 100% pure Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil (can substitute Lemongrass oil)

  7. Fill the bottle the rest of the way up with water and shake well.

Shake well each time before applying it to your horse and since the oil will quickly separate, it's best to shake periodically while using it, to keep it well mixed.
