Natural Fly Repellent For Horses

RIDINGMAGAZINE.COM

New product keeps flies and mosquitoes away.

"Ann Rogers wasn’t happy with the fly sprays she would bring home from the feed store. Her Tennessee Walker was very sensitive to fly bites and the fly spray irritated him even more. Her Andalusians were especially itchy and allergic to fly bites. She had been using essential oils for her horses for other benefits such as lavender’s calming effect and realized that a blend of essential oils could also be a natural and effective fly and insect repellent.

Essential oils come from plants, trees and flowers and have a built-in natural protection from bugs. Ann's special proprietary essential oil bug spray is made with lavender, cedarwood, eucalyptus, sandalwood, orange blossom, white fir, coconut and rose flower. These oils are a natural repellent, but they also ease stress, soothe anxiety, relax muscles, treat dry skin, improve mood, encourage circulation, condition skin and coat, relieve itching and minimize scarring. The spray is good for about six hours and great for both horse and rider.

A former analyst for the City of San Diego, Ann has been busy building her new business and has BB’s FlyAway Spray in several San Diego County feed stores including Carter’s and Jamul Feed. She currently has 2 oz., 8oz. and 32 oz. bottles, plus eye roller balls for around the eyes. Future all natural bug repellents are in development."
