I used to be the girl who spent $30 on horse spray because I didn’t want any annoying buggers to land on my horse…ever! It wasn’t till I bought my mare Honey that I started thinking about making my own. I had always thought she was super allergic to flies but when her allergy test came back it said one of the big allergens was the spray I was using 😲🐴
All this time I was trying to help her and I was actually making it worse! I had no idea how many skin irritants and toxins were in the sprays I had been purchasing. After that allergy test I started making my own. The recipe has changed a lot over the years. It started as a spray to just keep annoying buggers away and it has turned into something I use for basically everything. Skin funk, hoof funk, cleaning, immune support….the list goes on!
The best part is I can spray myself with it too! This spray is like total goodness in a bottle and my horse smells amazing 😍
Here’s The Recipe:
2 3/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 tbs Thieves Cleaner (completely plant-based and non-toxic)
15 Drops Basil Essential Oil
15 Drops Thyme Essential Oil
15 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
15 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
Combine ingredients in an 18oz spray bottle and enjoy! For a 32oz sprayer simply double the recipe.

It’s important to note that the quality of essential oils and apple cider vinegar makes a huge difference. One of the things I’ve changed over the years is the essential oils I’m using. I only use one brand and the reason is the purity – click here for more info. I used to use oils from the health food store thinking they were 100% pure, but when I switched to a better company I noticed I had to use a lot less oil and I noticed the benefits in a big way because there were no sneaky additives (formaldehyde is natural, so those bottles labeled 100% pure or natural can have a lot of sneaky ingredients in them).
