This is one ointment that doesn't smell so amazing, but trust me, after a few applications you won't mind once you see the results. I discovered Neem Oil when I had my Friesian Eclipse, I had never had a horse with such bad itch, I had tried all the usual remedies with no success and then someone suggested Neem Oil. I have never looked back. Combined with Citronella, Coconut oil, Rosemary, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, BPE Repel and Repair provides your itchy horse with everything it it needs to both repel the midgies and repair the skin, not often you find a product that does both. Those who have dealt with the dreaded itch will know that its not just the bites that are the problem, but the dry irritated skin as well.

Rugging is highly recommended for itchy horses.

BPE Repel and Repair ointment contains the following active ingredients;
Neem Oil - Is one of those super oils that has not just one but numerous uses for both horses and humans. Neem Oil helps stop insects biting, deeply moisturises and soothes the skin, and encourages rapid hair re-growth. Neem Oil will soften and remove scabs such as those resulting from rain scald or greasy heal, tackle itching and encourage hair re-growth.
Neem seeds also contain a few chemicals that have sulphur. This is where the characteristic smell to the neem oil comes from. Neem oil and many of its constituents have been successfully used against a wide range of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Due to its unique composition it has an almost magical effect on chronic skin conditions.
Neem Oil should not be used in pregnant mares. Or if pregnant yourself, wear gloves. Neem oil has the potential to effect hormones.
Citronella - The powerfully intense, smooth and lemony aroma of Citronella is often associated with insect repellent, but the benefits of Citronella, extend far beyond this. The 100% pure Citronella Java Essential Oil used in this ointment is regarded as being of a higher quality than common citronella oils, the antiseptic properties within Citronella Oil also makes it a great addition for both repelling and repairing.
Beeswax - The anti-inflammatory properties of beeswax encourage the healing of wounds. It is also protective, helping form a barrier between the skin and the environment without clogging pores. It is high in vitamin A, which has been found to support cell reconstruction and health. Beeswax has been found to help soothe and facilitate the healing of abrasions. It prevents harmful bacteria from entering the body through chapped and broken skin and it provides the skin with a layer of protection against external irritants. It's great for treating scrapes, minor cuts, minor wounds, and burns, among other abrasions.
Coconut Oil - Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is an EXTRA Virgin oil that is not refined, deodorized or bleached, and is Hexane free. It is an excellent skin moisturizer and softener, and is known as one of nature's best remedies for treating dry skin. It can also reduce inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds. The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties that can help protect the skin from harmful bacteria.
Coconut oil helps bolster the skin's protective barrier layer, trapping moisture inside and keeping skin supple and hydrated. It has anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for wounds and injuries and it also Increases collagen production to assist in healing and the reduction of scars.
Vitamin E - is not a single vitamin, but rather a group of fat-soluble vitamins with antioxidant effects. It can assist in speeding up healing and improve the cosmetic outcome of wounds and scars. Vitamin E has been shown to have great moisturising properties for the skin that can help reduce itchiness.
Aloe Vera - is renowned for its many beneficial properties and has been used for treating skin complaints since ancient times. Aloe Vera is soothing to burns, stings, rashes and other skin irritations. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Aloe Vera is also noted for its effectiveness in reducing pain and swelling. Its nourishing, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties also make Aloe Vera a great natural treatment for itchy skin and dry hair.
Rosemary - is used for helping to encourage hair growth, remedy dandruff and dry skin and slow down greying in horses and humans. It can also be very soothing. Rosemary has been shown to be effective in reducing inflammation, killing bacteria and help to increase circulation and provide warmth to the skin and underlying muscles. As rosemary essential oil is a strong astringent, it’s great for tightening sagging skin. It can also help reduce swelling.
