At at recent event, I asked which oils might assist my horse to recover from a deadly form of equine virus (EMH). I was directed to Tulsi and Niaouli. I combined a few drops of each on my palms and allowed my horse to inhale the oils. She could not get enough and insisted to take deep inhalations for 30 minutes. She prefered Tulsi. By the next day, her virus symptoms had improved to the point of near wellness. No more catheter, no more wobbles, no more IV. I am not saying this was all due to the florals, but I believed they truely helped. I loved and benefited from them as well.
