Our Calendula (Marigold) flowers for horses and other animals can be used topically for minor wounds, skin irritations, cuts and grazes. It is the supreme skin herb and is used extensively throughout the world to support the skin and skin health. Fresh Calendula leaves and flowers can be used to make both tinctures and oils and are used in homeopathic preparations. We use Calendular flowers in many of our topical and internal supplements for horses, pets, poultry and birds.
Marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis)
*please note: we do not include feeding instructions on the packaging or include a scoop in the bag or tub. This is due to the consistency of straight herbs eg roots are more dense than leaves or flowers, and they can be given to a variety of species. For further research on using straight herbs for animals there are some good books available including Hilary Self's "A Modern Horse Herbal".
If you have any concerns about your animal's health please contact your vet immediately. If you have any queries about using this product, or if your animal is pregnant, please contact our Helpline 0800 052 3672 (Freephone) or email email@example.com
Now that my grey horse is getting older and may be more prone to lumps and bumps, I give him Calendula to help his skin and keep it in top condition. I use it in conjunction with Equimmune to support his immune system and skin as much as possible. The Calendula flowers smell lovely - this is a great product which is easy to add to a feed and one which I thoroughly recommend.
