Peppermint Summer Protection

The flagship product that started it all!  When I could not find a non-toxic spray to protect my horses from flies and mosquitoes, I decided to create one myself.  As a certified aromatherapist, I had the training and knowledge of the power of plants and the amazing qualities in the compounds of aromatherapy.  So after a lot of experimenting on me and my family, I settled on a formula to try on my horses and I was amazed at the reaction.   I let them smell the product first.  They both seemed to enjoy the fragrance.  When I sprayed it on them, they relaxed.  I watched them through out the day and noticed that they were not bothered by flies.

This product is perfect for horse owners who are seeking a chem free lifestyle for their horse and their self.  What ever you spray on your horses, you are also being exposed to many of the toxic ingredients that can be found in many fly sprays.

Best Practices

  • spray generously all over the horses body
  • brush into the coat to get to the skin where the summer time pest like to bite
  • spray on legs and use a soft brush or  spray on a paper towel and wipe on the legs
  • For the head, spray on a towel and wipe all over the face avoiding coming too close to eye area.
  • You can smear a little of The Balm around the eye area for extra protection

Some things to remember when working with plant based  fly products

  • They last about 6 to 8 hours depending on application and amount and environment
  • They are not chemical based and will not perform at a chemical level. The benefits of nontoxic formulas out weigh the performance of using chemical based products
  • Flies may appear to “lite” on the horse however will likely not bite as the essential oil blend is not attractive to them.
  • I usually spray morning and evening for protection of all kinds of summer time pests.

    I have an Arab gelding who is allergic to most fly sprays. Not only does he NOT have any reaction to this product, it’s the only fly spray that he’ll stand still for, while I spray!

    I highly recommend it!!!

    My order arrived promptly. The spray works great and smells heavenly! I will say, however, that the shipping box was WAY oversized for this item.

  8. Robin (verified owner)

    Shipping was FAST! and packed well – no leaks. Only used one time and the flies seemed to stay away. My only complaint is that I could not get the bottle to spray it only came out in a stream – could be operator error?

    • Sherie Vermeer (store manager)

      HI Robin, the best way to get a wider spray is to turn the nozzle sprayer all the way off and then just barely turn to the right. Barely open is the widest stream. Hopefully this will solve the problem, if not let me know.

    The smell of this is so much better than the poisons in other insect sprays. No, it doesn’t last a long time but I’m good with that. I feel much better about putting this product on my horse than stronger sprays. It’s better for me too because I’m not breathing in poisonous stuff or getting it on me or my clothing.

    Since using Equi-Spa products, I and all my horses are completely spoiled and have absolutely no desire to use any other companies products. My horses have spoken and they all agree, Equi-Spa rocks!!!
