This horse presented with a large number of fingerprint sized areas of hair loss and scurf all over his forehead and underneath his forelock. These were sore and itchy, though to have been caused by a reaction to fly bites.
Ear Balm was rubbed into the area on a daily basis, which the horse seemed to visibly enjoy.
Within 4 days the itchiness had subsided and the hair had completely grown back.

The owner tried baby oil, Sudocreme, neem oil and summer fly cream with no improvement.
Ear Balm was recommended by a friend and was applied twice a day to the ears. Irritation seemed to subside immediately and Sokkul no longer felt the need to rub them.
Within 2.5 weeks the skin was healed and within 5 weeks the hair had completely regrown.
“Ear Balm was amazing and I shall definitely use it again and recommend it!”
Yes, the balm can be used anywhere apart from very close to the eyes to soften and soothe skin.
Ear Balm usually provides relief from irritation for between 24 and 48 hours.
The ingredients in Ear Balm have an average SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of around 5 so it should reduce the chances of sun burn.
We recommend not. We do not know of any other species being intolerant to any of the ingredients, but as Ear Balm is formulated for horses reactions to its ingredients in other animals have not been studied.
Ear Balm contains nut oils (shea) so it should be kept out of contact with anyone who has nut allergies. With any products containing essential oils we recommend doing a patch test prior to more extensive application on skin.
Yes, as long as you don’t have specific allergies to essential oils or nut butters.
Spot check on a small area of skin before use and do not use if a reaction is shown. Rub a small amount onto visible areas of the ear and face. Do not get any in deeper parts of the ear. Re-apply as required.
