What do Aromaheel and Aroma-Mud contain?
Both Aromaheel and Aroma-Mud contain a unique blend of essential oils and herbal extracts specifically chosen for their soothing, antibacterial and barrier properties.
How often do I need to apply them?
Initially Aromaheel needs to be applied thickly once or twice a day to all scabs. After the first application either wipe away any excess first or apply more ointment over the top. Once the scabs have come off and the weeping has stopped you will be able to apply less and gently rub it in.
Aroma-Mud then needs to be applied around the areas of Aromaheel until the area is fully healed. Then if you continue to use Aroma-Mud as a preventative, dependent upon the severity of the conditions, an application every 1-2 days will provide complete protection against wet and mud conditions.
Do I need to wash my horses legs before reapplying?
No, we advise to avoid washing your horses legs as much as possible. Simply wipe off any mud or excess product before reapplying.
If you do wish to wash the legs at any point, we advise using an antibacterial shampoo such as our Itchy Horse Shampoo Bar and to ensure your horses legs are completely dry before applying Aromaheel or Aroma-Mud.
Could my horse be sensitive to Aromaheel or Aroma-Mud?
Aromaheel and Aroma-Mud are usually suitable for any horse however, it is possible for some horses to be allergic to even natural ingredients. We always advise performing a double patch test over 48 hours on a small area of normal skin (not on the legs) before first use.
