Horse Skin Fungus can be
Prevented and Treated Naturally with Essential Oils

Horse skin fungus actually can be attributed to more skin problems than any other condition in the world of horses according to a Veterinarian at the University of California. And it is no wonder because they literally exist everywhere!

Fungi and yeast actually live off of decomposing or dead tissue so it is important to keep fungi in check whether it is in our digestive tract or on our horse’s leg!

Are there different types of Horse Skin Fungus?

There are really two fungal skin conditions that give us the most trouble with horses: Ringworm and Grunges. There are many other skin conditions such as horse scratches that resemble fungus so make sure you read through all the horse skin conditions sections for more information.

What is Ringworm?

Ringworm or Dermatophytois is very common and is not caused by a worm as the name may suggest! It starts as hair loss in a small localized area in a circular like fashion. And there is a red ring at the margin. The skin is scabby and can be raw as well.

Because it can spread easily and is contagious it is very important to not share saddle pads, blankets, grooming equipment or towels. As a matter of fact, even humans can pick it up, so you will want to use gloves when you can.

What Essential Oils do we use for Horse Skin Fungus?

Essential oils (therapeutic grade) are excellent for any kind of fungal infection, skin or otherwise. And can be used to treat Ringworm. They will help eliminate the fungal infection and promote healing as well.

The best oils to use for this condition are:

• Melaleuca ericifolia Essential Oil • Tea Tree or Melaleuca alternifolia Essential Oil

• Geranium Essential Oil

• Lavender Essential Oil

• Rosemary Essential Oil

• Lemongrass Essential Oil

• Rosewood Essential Oil

• Melrose Essential Oil

• Ortho Ease Massage Oil

• Thieves Antiseptic Spray Oil


For dilutions use the information on this website or check the distributor’s recommendation on the label. Also for carrier or base oils (for dilution), check the horse liniment section on what you can use.

How do we Treat Horse Skin Fungus?

Here are some tips for treating skin fungus:

• Make sure you clip as much of the hair away as possible. Sorry, all the horses feathers have to go! If you can I suggest, keeping the legs clipped up to knee in hot and humid areas.

Home remedies for scabies

Here are a few home remedy treatments I found online:
* boil the skins of a half-dozen onions for 15 to 30 minutes in a quart of water. Let the liquid cool, then apply it liberally all over your body. (Save the peeled onions to use in cooking.)
* Make a strong tea of either rosemary or tansy by brewing 1 tablespoon of dried herb to 1 cup of water. Steep for at least 20 minutes, strain and cool. Wash the affected area with the herbal infusion as often as 3 times a day, most importantly at bedtime.
* To treat the rash from scabies apply generously to the affected area before bedtime

    I was exposed to mono on Sunday and know there is nothing I can do to prevent or heal it. However, I would like to start fighting it now so that maybe I will have a less severe case, and it will last less time total. I w …verity of mono? What do you suggest taking? Also what level of severity should I be expecting? I've heard everything from people saying they couldn't move for a month to people saying they didn't even notice they had it.

    • The very best thing you can do is maximizing vitD levels. Many researchers claim that optimized vitamin D levels are more effective than a flu shot in preventing viral infections.

      I would recommend having yo … ng/ml (125 nmol/L), the body uses up vitamin D as fast as you can make it, or take it, indicating chronic substrate starvation—not a good thing. 25(OH)D levels should be between 50–80 ng/ml (125–200 nmol/L), year-round.

  • Avatar Miss Primrose I am having a mild acne and I need some help?
    Aug 25, 2012 by Miss Primrose | Posted in Other - Skin & Body

    I have Dry skin and may be due to hormonal imbalance or climatic changes, I am having a mild acne.

    But before it gets worse I want to take care of it either by using skincare products or home remedies.. ( Ho …ys I am using Fair And Lovely MultiVitamin Cream because it is not that greasy and does not makes my skin feel oily.

    Suggestions are needed so that I can take care of my skin properly. =)


    • In my opinion you should use anti acne skin care product, but you can also concentrate on other things you do every day that contribute to acne, like lack of sleep, dehydration, unhealthy food, too much stress. If you have any of those try correcting them and you will see an improvement in short period of time.
