Is well documented in all living beings, horses under stress also release cortisol, elevate blood pressure, breathing, and in prolonged cases the elevated flight response increases recovery time, predisposition to injury and severity of injury. Horses are expensive animals to keep and show. A little bit of foresight and planning year long can reduce their downtime, reduce suffering, and other expenses due to more severe sequelae and make for a better time with you. Its also not terribly time consuming and does not require much advance planning to de-stress using aromatherapy.
Methods – If you don't work with an equine massage therapist or chiropractor, don't worry. Check out our Reviews section for real world examples of owners that incorporate DIY elements like touch, and Equine Aromatherapy application to soft brushes to be creative in treating their horses to the benefits year round, not only for special occasions.
Caveats – Bellerophon products are fine for most horses. There are a few instances, however that your horse might not be suitable for treatment with essential oils topically- such as if they have an open wound, or for foals or pregnant/ lactating mares. Also, If your horse is on a cocktail of oral medicines by your vet's instruction or has recently undergone an operation, check with your vet around best ways to apply or hold off touching them with the oil until healed. Good news is- You may be able to use the olfactory elements to reduce their symptoms. These products are 100% for external use. We recommend using care with the bottles as they are made of glass. Many horses (maybe yours) absolutely LOVE their Bellerophon blends so much they WILL go after the bottle if you leave it on a nearby fence rung or within nose reach during a session. We recommend closing the bottle between applications and keeping it out of equine reach. A little goes a long way, at a few drops an a treatment each bottle can last 50- 100 sessions for your horse.
How to Use Bellerophon Oils- Invert the bottle gently a few times before each use. The composition of each blend includes various highest grade Equine specific essential oils with slightly different viscosities that can settle between treatments. This step ensures that each treatment will have consistent composition. The typical application is a few drops to the palm of your clean hands to warm the oil. These oils are better applied to your horse when it has been groomed and is free of mud, lose hairs etc. They work well as a polishing step and absorb without residue into their skin as well as having a calming effect on their mind. Bring your hands to their face a few inches away and let them to breathe in several times. Repeat each time you get any new oil on your hands. Can be used regularly. If your horse has sensitive skin, spot check and wait 24 hours. Do not apply oils on a hot sunny day when your horse will be put back into the sun after a treatment. If you have a horse with a serious health concern and have reservations, check with your vet as always.

But don't just take our word for it. Experts have long observed this effect, and while aromatherapy is used in both human and equine therapy, the types of essential oils used differ according to the expected use.
Bellerophon's products are scientifically designed to help along four categories:
Here are a few articles/videos that can help with understanding the science of equine aromatherapy:
In Ancient Greece Bellerophon was a mortal human who was sent to slay the demon Chimera- a mythical beast and soul stealer that terrorized the lands. The Chimera was part lion, part dragon, part goat and part snake and was undefeated. To achieve this task Bellerophon needed to first catch and then tame and finally ride the spirited winged horse Pegasus who outwitted all others that attempted to ride him. Together with the help of a golden bridle that Bellerophon received as a gift from the goddess Athena, Bellerophon and Pegasus rode out and killed the evil Chimera and restored balance and peace to the land. Bellerophon was the only mortal known to ever have tamed Pegasus and he was a celebrated hero. After his triumph, Bellerophon returned to the people and to the lands, and Pegasus who was mortal was immortalized by Zeus via a constellation in the stars. Bellerophon symbolizes the ability of mortals to transcend myth in relationship with the horse and to build a divine relationship and connection. He was not status quo- Bellerophon was exceptional and non-traditional, like Bellerophon Equestrian Aromatherapy products named in his honor.
Bellerophon Equestrian Aromatherapy products for the mindful horse and rider were created by a horse lover from Canada working with Equine Herbologists, and Equine Massage Therapists in Australia and the UK. The formulations contain all Grade A herbs that are formulated and balanced for equines and have been tested and validated over many generations of use. Our products focus on behaviour, performance improvement, better horse-owner relationships and specific health concerns for your horse. They can be administered topically, by diffusion, using an Equine scarf, or spray bottle mixed with warm water. Not for ingestion, use only as directed. Bellerophon essential oils are especially formulated for Your Equine.
Regular treatment strengthens the bond between horse and rider for better performance.
A mix of popular equine friendly Grade A Essential Oil extracts to calm your BFF’s mind & body. Our formulations fall into 3 categories- 1) Therapeutic Equine Aromatherapy- for various conditions such as hoof ailments, allergies, coughs/ colds, or cancer, 2) Performance Enhancement 3) Relationship building/ Emotional bonding horse and rider.
Keep in mind when envisioning the scents, that the products and herb blends are geared to healing in the Equine Olfactory senses and not necessarily to what is deemed esthetically pleasing to humankind. So Although many scents are nice, not all combinations would be natural choices for personal use on human bodies - though you could use them on humans without question.
