Sometimes we want to use natural products to protect our horses from pesky insects, and the best ingredients are plant-based and surprisingly easy to find.

Citriodiol is the most effective natural insect repellent in the world and conveniently comes from the oil of the lemon scented gum, a native Australian eucalypt. This is the key ingredient in Carr & Day & Martin’s Natural Insect Repellent Spray, which is water-based and contains only ingredients approved by the HSE, the British organisation responsible for workplace health and safety.

Natural Insect Repellent Spray comes in the revolutionary new Equimist bottle, which sprays a fine, even and virtually silent application to your horse’s coat. It even works upside-down!

Rosemary is more than just a delicious flavouring for a roast lamb dinner! The essential oil of this common garden herb is another popular natural insect repellent and is an important ingredient in ePro’s Premium Glow Shampoo. Rosemary also stimulates the circulation, and makes hair grow faster and stronger, which is every horse owner’s dream … so pull out a sponge and start lathering!

For a final insect-repelling rinse, try this easy, home-made recipe: steep rosemary leaves and lemons in boiling water for 24 hours, strain and then either pour over the coat or transfer to a spray bottle to use a couple of times a day. This simple conditioner also adds a lovely, gentle shine.
