Reviews of 1999 edition:
Horse Scents, appropriately titled, is not just about aromatherapy – it is also about horse sense. It goes beyond the realm of basic aromatherapy to include other important facets of natural health and well-being.
Catherine states, “Our use of essential oils and herbs for natural healing and health are based on centuries of trials, and the beneficial results have been consistently reinforced over time. In Europe, scientific evaluations of the constituents of essential oils and herbs have confirmed the qualities that natural therapists have known and used for so long.”
Horse Scents introduces the reader to the idea of using these well-established and proven practices to help maintain the horse at optimum health and aid its recovery in times of physical and emotional ill health. This book gives the reader a warm welcome to the world of aromatherapy and natural care. Catherine’s personable approach to the reader is as refreshing as the subject matter. Information is presented in a way that allows the reader to fully appreciate and understand the obvious and the subtle benefits of aromatherapy. It awakens one to the opportunities aromatherapy provides to gently create a bond with the horse.
Horse Scents leaves the reader with not only an abundance of practical, useful information on equine aromatherapy, but also a deeper understanding of the human/horse relationship. The reader will gain an unforgettable appreciation for aromatherapy and its innumerable benefits. The Natural Horse Magazine http://www.naturalhorse.com
This is truly a unique book. There is very little written to date on how to use essential oils with animals, particularly horses. Ms. Bird does a wonderful job of keeping the book light and easy to absorb, while making the information ways to apply to horses. Ms. Bird begins the book by explaining what aromatherapy is, why and how to use it with your horse. She portrays delightful case histories of some of her clients, which gives the reader a way to relate to the applications of Essential Oils.
The mainstay of the book is dedicated to a very extensive list of essential oils and why and when they should be used for the horse. There are many ways to incorporate the use of essential oils, ranging from massage liniments to clays, all of which are outlined by Ms. Bird.
Ms. Bird spends time explaining the different massage techniques that can be incorporated with aromatherapy. She does not exclude other forms of alternative therapies that can tie in with the use of Essential Oils.The Holistic Horse http://www.holistichorse.com,
