The Many Benefits of the “King of Oils”


Often called the “king of oils, ” Frankincense is an amazing oil that should be in every farm and home.  Topical and internal uses provide modern health benefits while, aromatically, it promotes feelings of peace and overall wellness .

Some of the benefits of Frankincense Essential Oil are:

1. Aids with minor wounds from cuts, scrapes, and burns. For even greater benefit, apply Lavender essential oil first then layer Frankincense on top.

2. Neurological support. — Frankincense is probably the best oil I know of for neurological support. It helps with the function of the central nervous system in particular. Whether it’s helping with clarity of thinking, or balancing the emotions, frankincense has a lot of benefits to offer. Extremely soothing.

3. Helps to reduces and fade scars. Just combine 2-3 drops of frankincense oil with coconut oil, and directly apply it on your skin.

4. Fosters a strong immune system. Massage a few drops into the balls of your feet daily to boost your immune system. You can also diffuse it throughout your home or in your bedroom at night.

5. Reduces stress and anxious feelings. Diffuse with complimentary oils to promote peace in your home and stable.  One can also simply massage a drop or two in some carrier oil onto the back of the neck. For horses it can be applied to the poll.

6. Frankincense affects Hormones and Memory helping to balance them and improve the memory.

7.  Mix a few drops of the Frankincense with a carrier oil (like coconut) and apply to your skin. You can also add a drop of Frank to your daily moisturizer.

8. Head tension. Frankincense can be used to relieve conditions where pain and tension are present – apply behind the ears or to the temples or even on the back of the neck.

9. Congestion. Put up to six drops in a sink or bowl filled with very hot water then bend over the sink with a towel draped over your head to contain the steam. Breathe in the vapors for at least five minutes, adding more hot water as needed. Be careful not to scald yourself; the water should be hot, not boiling. One can add some melaleuca, peppermint and oregano to the mix, also. VERY STRONG … use with care.

Mutual or Fearful Respect?


Mutual respect or fearful respect? Which is it for you; for your horse?

When teaching children we try to have patience and be clear in our instructions. We keep our voices soft, our eyes, soft and our hearts compassionate.

When teaching horses we see alot of bats, whips, flags, chasing round and round, angry faces, incongruent body languages … all in the name of ‘natural horsemanship’.

Let me tell you what happens when you’re trying to ‘train’ a horse using forceful equipment and language … (meaning mind body and heart language)

Horses are meant to remember every single flight or fight moment … that is, whatever cause them to feel as if they need to flee, jump away, startle away – they remember.


That’s just simply the way their survival system is formed.

We humans are much the same.

PTSD = Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

This occurs from those momentary flight or fight events.

Every flight or fight event for the horse is woven into the tapestry of the brain … forever.

This response actually triggers a chain response in the brain and body.

It’s a ‘whole body’ response.

Never forgotten.

When a horse apparently ‘succumbs’ to a scary thing and ‘submits’ to the human causing the scary thing, the horse embeds a PTSD moment into his brain .. forever. And now, forever, he’ll try to avoid that PTSD moment, in some manner, out of fear.

Because the horse submits some say now the horse is ‘respectful’ or some say now the horse is ‘desensitized’.

But somewhere, sometime, somehow down the line, the horse will have a PTSD recurrance moment that is unconsciously connected directly to the initial ‘training’ moments that cause the PTSD in the first place.

This is not ‘respect’ when a horse responds to a harsh cue with, what seemingly appears to be, a ‘correct response’.

This is fear based reaction.
This becomes a classically conditioned response of fear.

A horse moves out of the human’s way as a response to being swatted on the face or neck with a hard, rubber bat. A horse swings its butt around to face the human to avoid being kicked in the hindquarters or whipped. The horse moves sideways to avoid the sting of a crop on its side. The horse goes into the trailer to avoid the ‘punishment’ of not going into the trailer.

The list goes on.

The horse is ‘obeying commands’ but not out of respect.

He’s “obeying” out of fear. He is AVOIDING pain, discomfort, fear.

PTSD is a funny thing .. for humans and for horses. It can rear its ugly head with a totally uncontrollable response and do so ‘out of nowhere’.

Not something anyone wants when riding or working around horses.

Horses that TRULY respect the human will try like crazy to avoid stepping on the human, running the human over … and will try like crazy to please the human; to get the ‘right’ answer. The horse will be bright and alert and happily engaged with the human as he is with a friend of his own kind. He will try to figure out what is being asked and willingly stay with the human to find out the answer.

Just like humans, horses want to feel ‘good’. They will repeat behaviors and try to recreate situations that made them feel good in the past.

Positive reinforcement goes a long, long way in teaching children AND horses …

Being *rewarded* for a “correct” response vs. being “punished” for the “wrong” response.

Is that how we teach our children?

Is that how you teach your horse?

If you’d like to learn more about positive reinforcement and how to create and develop a life-long lasting PARTNERSHIP with your horse, simply ask me.

I will help you. I will help your horse and together, as a team, we’ll make it happen.

Would you like a stronger connection with your horse?

Do you have a horse that suffers from PTSD from a former situation and you’re not sure how to handle it?

Do you have a phobic horse? i.e. claustrophobic, won’t load on trailer, scared of flags, whips, buggies, doesn’t want to be touched, won’t allow hooves to be handled, head shy, ear shy, what-have-you?

I’ve worked and studied with some of the best horsemanship masters and lived with horses of all ages, breeds, and disciplines for over 50 years.

13 Things Good Horsemen Don’t Do …

Gwen and J.C.’s Bubba 1998

Inspired from … “13 things mentally strong people don’t do” …


1. They don’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves. …

A good horseman is so focused on the horse there’s no room to feel sorry for ones self.

2. They don’t give away their power. …

A good horseman shares the ‘power’ with the horse.

3. They don’t shy away from change. …

A good horseman is afraid to change things up when something isn’t ‘working’.

4. They don’t focus on things they can’t control. …

Good horsemanship just simply isn’t anything about control.

5. They don’t worry about pleasing everyone. …

A good horseman worries only about pleasing his horse.

6. They don’t fear taking calculated risks. …

A good horseman encourages his horse to take what may seem like a ‘risk’ and helps him through the scary spots.

7. They don’t dwell on the past. …

Horses don’t … so why should the horseman? A good horseman stays in the moment .. with the horse.

8. They don’t make the same mistakes over and over. …

Nope … good horsemen learn from their own mistakes.

9. They don’t resent other people’s success. …

Neither do good Leaders and Friends. Both of which a good horseman strives to be with his horse.

10. They don’t give up after the first failure.

No such thing as a failure except the failure to learn from something that goes awry.

11. They don’t fear alone time.

Alone time is sometimes the very best time with the horse!

12. They don’t feel the world owes them anything. …

and a good horseman doesn’t feel his horse owes him anything either. In fact, the good horseman feel he owes his horse his very best!

13. They don’t expect immediate results. …

Relationships take time; Partnerships even longer time to nourish, cherish, develop … A good horseman ALWAYS takes the time the HORSE needs.



Both 11 X 17 LAMINATED.  ESSENTIAL OILS 1-sided.  HOMEOPATHIC 2-sided with normal TPR chart and Emergency Herbs and Oils as well as Remedies for Acute Situations.

Principles of Natural Healing

The Principles of Natural Healing
as noted in “The Nature of Animal Healing” by Dr. Marty Goldstein

  1. Disease is an absence of health, and vice versa: health is an absence of disease. But health was here first!
  2. Disease is a process used by nature in an attempt to get itself healthy.
  3. Degenerative disease is not caused by nature. It is an aberration of nature (caused mostly by – in my opinion – man).
  4. Cancer is nothing more than a severe aberration of nature manifested in and by the body.
  5. Sickness is an excuse to get healthy.
  6. Don’t mess with Mother Nature!
  7. the mechanism for healing is already built into all individuals. Healing therefore occurs most rapidly when we realign with the natural laws governing that mechanism.
  8. Pure health is spontaneous healing.
  9. The immune system functions maximally and at peak efficiency in its totally unaltered state.
  10. The degree to which we have to work toward health is directly proportional to the amount we have messed it up in the first place. Health is simple; disease brings in complexity.
  11. Generally, it’s not what you put into the body that restores health; rather it’s what you let the body eliminate.
  12. Physically, health isn’t everything, but without it, everything is nothing.
  13. Food, including the necessary vitamins and minerals, was intended not to improve, but rather to maintain, the body. Therefore the need for treatment reflects the degree to which the individual has strayed from nature.
  14. The body does not have to degenerate or age nearly as quickly as we presume. Each body cell has the ability to replicate itself 100 percent, and the process should continue for longer than we currently expect if we minimize deleterious effects on the cellular structure. It is only what we choose to do to the body, both consciously and unconsciously, that leads to the premature aging we experience.
  15. Genetic predispositions to disease are only predispositions, and do not have to manifest if health is maintained. Once a genetically predisposed disease condition appears clinically, it can be reversed, although with more difficulty, as a course toward health is taken.
  16. Nature and the being itself are the true healers. The practitioner, in the guise of being the healer, is truly the guide. Or: Physician, heal thyself!
  17. Nature uses disease to establish balance. Only when our bodies are out of balance are we subject to disease, and if we can just endure the natural healing process, the disease will soon abate, having restored us to the balance that is optimal health!

About Dr. Goldstein: Dr. Goldstein is a graduate of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and runs a renowned clinic in South Salem, NY.

In his practice, Dr. Goldstein has had extraordinary success treating cancer and leukemia. He believes that the best way to cure an animal who is ill is to help the animal cure itself. We are not the true healers of our pets –THEY are. By treating the root of the problem instead of its symptoms, holistic medicine enables our pets to regain and maintain their own health.
