Tins from The Herbal Horse

I know I haven't been posting like I hoped I would, but I had so much to catch up on especially now that I've got another dog-sitting job... for the next month. It was good to get back to work and I'm glad I finally got a chance to work with the B man... he's kind of a mess right now and we have a lot of work to do. Example? He stood, head up, body shaking, and ears foward for the farrier today. This horse has not even moved for over a year. This is like... Old School Brantley. Ugh... oh well. I did it before, I can do it again.

Anyway! Since I have a moment I would like to say that I received my Giveaway from The Owl Approves and the Herbal Horse who you can find HERE. If you get the chance you should really try her stuff.

First off... the tins? The design? Absolutely adorable. And when I opened the package I wasn't overwhelmed by the scent. It was subtle but comforting if any of that makes sense. (I'm one of those girls who can't walk into a Yankee Candle or Bath & Body Works without getting a headache... or even wanting puke.) 

I right away popped them all open and they each have their own distinct scent.

Less is more I say. And these were perfect.

Obviously I automatically took the Quick Heal and rubbed it all over my bite wound. I then grabbed the Be Calm and took a whiff... It smelt like pure comfort and had a head-clearing affect. I stuffed it in my pocket and headed to the barn.

We had an interesting work out... as I said, we've got a lot to work on but we'll get there. After the work out and finally getting him to "join up" with me, I popped open the Be Calm tin.

Can I just say, Brantley was ALL over me. His nose was going and he was pushing into my chest with his head. I rubbed a small amount on the outside of his muzzle next to his nostrils. He took one big breath in and began to chew as he let it out. Wish I grabbed it for my farrier appointment.

I will definitely be keeping these in my tack trunk.

I also received a tin of Healthy Hair and Muscle Soothe which I have yet to try but I'm pretty confident in what the results will be.

Hope you all get the chance to visit Helen's shop!

EDIT: I forgot to add that all day today I've been rubbing the Heal Quick on the hole in my arm and it's already less irritated, swollen, and dry. Plus... it smells great. Yes... I made people at work smell my arm. I'm impressed.

ooh yay, I wanted to try there stuff but was worried it was too smelly. I don't even use scented detergent, it will drive me nuts.

I'm totally with you on that. My Mom sells the "Essential Oils" which is like Avon/Tupperware and I can't walk into her house with her A) shoving it my face or B) getting a migraine. I was worried about it but since it was a Giveaway, I had to try. Now it's a tack box must have. :)
