We rely on essential oils for various purposes.
One of the primary uses of essential oils is as fly repellents.
We use a range of oils, including Lavender, Citronella, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Lemon Balm, Peppermint, Spearmint, Rosemary, Pine Needles, Oregano, and many more. These oils help create a natural barrier against flies, ensuring our donkeys can enjoy a peaceful and comfortable environment.
In addition to fly repellents, essential oils also serve medicinal purposes for our donkeys.
Our team is well-versed in the benefits and applications of these oils, and we carefully select the appropriate ones for specific conditions.
Whether it’s soothing lavender for relaxation, antiseptic tea tree for wound care, or invigorating eucalyptus for respiratory support, we prioritise the well-being of our donkeys.
If you’d like more information about the essential oils we use and their specific benefits, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Sandy, our knowledgeable Sanctuary Manager.
