Here are a few articles/videos that can help with understanding the benefits 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.

Our products focus on behaviour, performance improvement, better horse-owner relationships and specific health concerns for your horse.

Bellerophon essential oils are especially formulated for Your Equine.

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.
