My mare develops a strong head flick in the spring & summer. Giving her the Sneeze Free formula every day cuts her symptoms down considerably.

My horse (a 24 year old mare) has always suffered from stiff joints. I have been feeding her Brookby Herbs' Free Mover and she's now running around like a two year old. She's a quite a different horse altogether - even the Vet can't believe the difference. I swear by it.

I have been feeding Brookby Herbs Echinacea Organic Plus and the Herbal Health blend to my Grand Prix show jumpers for the last two years and I have been most impressed with the results. We used Echinacea Organic Plus for respiratory problems and found a remarkable improvement in the horses health. It also appeared to build the immunity to the many bugs that are now prevalent amongst horses. I am now a convert to natural products, especially Echinacea Organic Plus and I would strongly recommend the use of Brookby Herbs' products.

The Benefits of Lavender

The lavender plant has long held many healing properties. Not only is the plant fragrant but also very useful in home remedies that offer relief from many types of ailments for people as well as animals. When we think of lavender, typically we think of perfumes, soaps, and lotions. In addition to its soothing smell, lavender also offers real health benefits and relief for animals and people. In various different forms, lavender has been known to treat respiratory issues, improve the circulation of blood, relieve pain and been used as a disinfectant for the skin, coat, and scalp. The soothing scent offers a calming property thought to reduce anxiety and nervousness. 

Growing Lavender

To grow, lavender requires warm conditions and full sun with moist soil. Very cold weather or very wet soil will result in the loss of the plant. The good news is that once the plant is strong and well established, it becomes very hearty and can grow in many conditions. The plant grows best in tight spaces that are moist but not damp and in pots or spaces that allow for root growth and air flow. If you do not have the luxury of a consistent climate all year round, planting lavender outside during the warm months and moving it inside in the cooler months allows you to have it all year round. Growing lavender in pots indoors allows for more consistent climate control and a better long-term result. Compact variety seeds are the best for indoor planting.
