Mineral & Clay Poultices are highly beneficial in the treatment of skin hypersensitivity reactions in horses. Have you seen how elephants & rhinos bathe in clay mud baths to protect themselves from insect bites & the sun?

Quick & easy to make at home, this simple treatment can assist in the rapid treatment of hives or insect bite reactions.

Combining mineral clays into a poultice assists in decreasing inflammation in the skin, soothing the itch, and drawing out toxins, debris & excess fluid. Concurrently the poultice nourishes the skin with minerals, improves circulation & calms inflammation.

Combining clays from different origins enhances the beneficial effects. These effects are enhanced even further with the addition of medicinal herbs offering antibacterial & anti-inflammatory properties.

Treat the horse daily until resolved. Consider following with our Dermatitis Balm for further treatment of skin conditions.
