Herbs and herbal blends

At Equimins, we’re big fans of herbs. A look at our website and product range will show just how much we like them through the dried herbs, herbal liquid tinctures and other supplements containing herbs that we produce. In this blog, we’re highlighting a few herbal products that we do, and also a number of more ‘conventional’ supplements that contain herbs too.

Dried herbs…

MintMint has been used for centuries as a way to help support the digestive system, and also makes a great appetite stimulant.

Milk Thistle can be used to help support the liver and cleansing.

Dried herbal blend…

Liquid herbal tinctures…

Devil's Claw LiquidDevil’s Claw Liquid is available as a liquid herbal tincture made using the African herb Harpagophytum procumbens. It can be used to help the nutritional maintenance of joints and bones, to help maintain suppleness and ease of movement. Due to its presentation and the way it’s made, our Devil’s Claw Liquid is concentrated, so 1L will last the average horse for around a month.
