Calming nervous horses

Horses are very sensitive to essential oils. Just letting them smell lavender out of the bottle or your hand can help them to relax and settle. When traveling with green horses or nervous horses, I've let the horse smell it, and if they like it - I rub a couple drops with a carrier oil on their chest.

It doesn't last too long, and so for longer trips or events it will need reapplication.
