Essential Oils

For those interested in Essential Oils (and even our equine friends) check out this great study completed at Michigan State University.  The study tested the ability of lavender aromatherapy to decrease equine heart and respiratory rates following induced acute stress and as a result enhance recovery from the stress.  It was concluded that 15 minutes of aromatherapy with lavender essential oil did reduce the heart rate in horses.  Science is beginning to support essential oils as an effective alternative medicine!
