“EcoLicious Products Are Dream Come True”:Testimonial from Melissa

We love to hear from you.  Here’s a testimonial from our customer Melissa.

“I would consider myself a bit of a horse grooming junkie, and Ecolicious is an absolute dream come true!! All the products are not only safe for my mare but smell fantastic. I must say my absolute favorite product in the line is Glossy Gloss Coat Enhancing Tonic, it gives the perfect shine and finishing touch. Not only is it a must have in my show box for that extra shine, it’s also in my daily grooming kit!! Thank you Ecolicious for your commitment to making safe products for our equine friends!!”

Sincerely,

Melissa Johnston

Snow & Winter Hoof Care

Snow & Winter Hoof Care

As you probably notice, your horse’s hooves grow at a significantly slower rate in the winter and start to accelerate again with longer days and more sunlight. This may mean saving on farrier and scheduling regular work further apart, but it’s a double edged sword. Cracks and any other hoof defects take much longer to clear up.

Hooves & Snow : The Good Part

Freezing temperatures are not friendly environment for bacteria and fungus. Get your leg up on thrush problems and treat regularly to make sure your horse’s hooves are ready for the oh-soo-thrush-prone spring season.

Hooves & Snow : The Bad Part

Is your horse walking on snowballs? Wet snow tightly packed in the hoof (especially shod ones) can cause tripping, pain and may lead to injury. You may consider pulling your horses shoes off for the winter. It will decrease the chance of “snow-balling” and give the hooves some time to regenerate. If your horse requires to be shod at all times, ask your farrier to apply anti-snowball pads. You can try Pam cooking spray on the bottom of the hoof as a short term solution.


TIP: For healthy hooves try our Hoof Therapy Therapeutic Hoof Serum. It  moisturizes dry, cracked hoofs, softens hardened frogs, treats contracted heels and protects against the elements. Organic Hemp, Wheat Germ, Apricot Kernel and Olive Oil are rich in the essential fatty acids vital for healthy hoof growth.

EcoLicious Product Spotlight – Moisture Maniac Detangling Infusion

 

If a spray on detangler is part of your regular grooming routine, you got to try our EcoLicious Moisture Maniac Detangling Infusion. It’s packed with 100% natural and naturally derived ingredients that condition and detangle your horse’s mane and tail without drying it out. Panthenol & Silk Powder derived from pure Silk Worm Cocoon help restore natural luminosity, retain moisture and nourish your horse’s mane & tail hair. Certified Organic Hemp Oil & Sunflower Seed Oil softens and smoothes while protecting fragile hair from breakage and the reflective properties of Silk Powder act as a natural sunscreen. It’s silicone free. Why? Even though silicone is used in majority of mane & tail products on the market, it does in fact damage hair in a long term. It clogs pores, thus prevents hair from breathing and without any oxygen, the hair cannot regenerate.

Did I mention that it smells heavenly?  Essential Oil of Sweet Orange is known in both equine and human aromatherapy for its mood uplifting properties and it also makes a great conditioner.  Warning : Horses love the scent and might try to eat the bottle, so keep an eye on it. And don’t worry! It won’t attract bugs – unlike us and our horses, the bugs don’t dig citrus scents.

Like all our products – Moisture Maniac is packaged in 100% recycled plastic and the bottle can be recycled once you’re done with it.

And now you can try Moisture Maniac Detangling Infusion for FREE (retail value $22.95), if your order $50 or more. Flat shipping fee $15 anywhere in the US and Canada. Promo code: frMM11. Promo offer will expire on February 8th, 2011.
