Cut to Head:

‘I tried botanica after Kerry cut her head as I didn’t want it to scar as she’s only 4 and being grey, shows up scars easily. The cut took all the fur from her head and was bleeding. I was advised that Botanica cleansing wash and cream would be an excellent treatment for Kerry’s cut and she allowed me to bathe the cut with wash and then dress it with the cream. I did this twice a day and the hair was growing back within 2 weeks and not a sign of any cut on her head now. Any cut or abrasions and I reach for the botanica! I recommend it to anyone and the smell is great too and my hands after use were fabulously soft too.

Sweet Itch :

Sweet itch is an allergic skin disease. Certain horses are allergic to the saliva in the bite of a species of midge called Culicoides. This means that once a sensitive horse is bitten by a Culicoides Fly, it will have an allergic reaction at the site of the bite. This will cause a localised irritation whih the house will try and rub. Self-inflicted damage will occur as the horse itches himself.

We tried the Botanica Cleansing wash and Anti-Itch ceam on a horse that suffered from sweet itch year after year and here is what his owner had to say………
I have tried a number of different potions and lotions on Ardee with not much success, however when I tried Botanica I was pleasantly surprised to see that it actually worked and made a huge difference. I now use the cleansing wash as a preventative and am pleased to say that up to now we have not had any further issues with Ardees skin. Amazing wash and cream and I will be make sure I always have some in the cupboard.

Hi everyone, my name is Angela Eardley. On a recent visit to Hoys I was introduced to Sean Cooney from Botanica. We got into a conversation about my best horse ‘Love Me’. For all of you people that don’t know me, I show jump all over the country at amateur level but with some success and travel far and wide to most of the major shows.
4 weeks ago ‘Love Me’ had an accident and made quite a mess of her offside rear fetlock. I had been treating her with all the usual potions, lotions and anti-inflammatories with not much result as where it was kept splitting, bleeding and swelling.
Whilst speaking to Sean from Botanica I told him all about this and he suggested that I did a ‘tried and tested’ on his creams and washes. I could not believe the difference in just 1 week and all I did was wash twice a day then rub the cream in and you can see the difference.
I also started to wash all my other horses’ legs with the wash after exercise and none of them have had the sand rash off the arena since clipping. I found the wash a lot less harsh than a lot of others as it soap free.
It is definitely worth looking into Botanica as they do all sorts of different creams and lotions and after my experience with what I tried I will always keep it in stock. They also do face cream for humans so I think I am going to try that next….

Hi Sean,

We received an answer from Richard of Chester Zoo’s Elephant Department to my questions regarding Botanica wash and cream. They used the wash and cream 2 or 3 times a week on a tail of an elephant at the zoo over a period of a couple of months.
Rich’s e-mail to me is below with photos of the tail in question. We might want to talk after this mail to you as there could be a good application for your product but we need to talk about the direction we push with the wash & cream. I believe we have a winner after this evaluation and take it to the next level of evaluation and my business interest in your product, let’s talk, Alan.

Hi Alan,
Just wanted to give you an update on Jangoli’s tail since we have been using the Botanica wash and cream.
When we begun using the products there were two distinct areas we were targeting. At the base of the tail the skin had hardened around the original wound, much harder than just skin re-growth. There was no open wound in the area but the skin was quite tight and dry.  Approximately 10 inches further up the tail there was a small wound about 2-3cm diameter that was still creating small amounts of puss beneath the thin scab that was forming.  Healing of the wound appeared to be impeded by the skin hardening from 3 directions meaning that the area was unable to fully recover.
We began using the Botanica products as directed and with the same frequency as we were carrying out the usual hibi-scub was, every 2/3 days (Hibi-scrub wash was replaced by the Botanica wash).  It was quickly noticeable that both areas were softening up around the wounds encouraging new skin growth.

At the top wound after 3/4 applications the hardened skin surrounding the thin scab came away from the area revealing smooth, healthy pink tissue beneath.  It was at this point that we discussed whether using the cream was suitable as the area needed drying out.  We decided to stop creaming this wound and apply wonder dust instead.
The area at the base of the tail also became soft quite quick. So much so that a small area of the wounded base reopened into an un-scabbed area. We have now decided to stop using the cream on this area also and are wonder dusting to reseal the wound.

As we were not using the cream every day, it was clear that the product’s oils were remaining on the skin for long periods before naturally washing away. This therefore meaning that the tissue continues to soften whilst any residue of the cream is present.
There is no doubt that the cream is effective in softening skin but its oily nature means that it is perhaps best used seldom rather than often and on more basic tail care.  For any more serious uses for any wounds etc I believe that it is too good at its job (If this is possible!)
The wash is great, just as good as hibi-scrub for the purposes we required (…… and smells as nice as well)

Hope you are well

Rich

Perfect recovery achieved with Botanica Wash and Cream
I had a very sever case of sunburn on a pedigree cow. My vert had treated her and suggested keeping her in a dark shed. However multiple secondary infections and sores developed to the extent that I thought I might lose her.

A neighbour suggested Botanica as a possible treatment. I bathed the sores using Botanica Cleansing Wash and then massaged the Herbal Cream into the affected area. This appeared to have an immediate effect – every soothing and cooling. I repeated this treatment on a daily basis and to my amazement the soreness disappeared, her infections reduced in size, and then cleared completely. Subsequently she grew a full coat of hair and began to cycle normally.

I can only describe it as a prefect recovery thanks to the Botanica products.”

Hello Sir/Madame

My name is Jodie Richardon, I wanted to contact yourselves just to say how much I appreciate your product. I have two accident prone horses and wouldn’t be without a tub of botanica in my tack box.

I have used it numerous times for any small cuts, mud fever but recently my horse had scratched her tail right to the skin. I used the botanica wash and cream together for the first week and then the cream daily and the progression has been amazing. Please see the pictures enclosed, the first is when it occurred on the 31/08/2016 and the second is from today 15/09/2016. I think you will agree how well it has been healing in such a sort space

Thank you again just thought it would have been nice to show you evidence of the effectiveness of the botanica product.

Hi All I just wanted to say what an amazing product your cream and wash are. I recently bought a horse that arrived at my yard with severe, bleeding, smelly thrush. I spoke to Sean who said to use the wash neat which I did, it took about 3 days twice a day and it has healed – amazing. I also use the cream and wash in the bathroom for any skin conditions, from athlete’s foot to rashes or as a deodorant. The wash is a great cleanser too. It is known in our household as the magic cream! Thanks for an amazing product.

Last week Mark give me three Botanica Natural Healing Products samples – a Cleansing Wash, A Natural Herbal Cream and a 5 in 1 Grooming Spray. I read all the testimonials that came with the products and thought – Jack Needs this!!!.


Jack is my 10 year old Rottweiler and he has a wiry, dry coat with flaky skin and has very bad moulting. So on Tuesday night I sprayed the 5 in 1 on him and continued this twice a day until Sunday. Sunday afternoon I wet him with tap water and the poured a bucket of warm water and Botanica Cleansing wash over him. I then towel dried him, his coat is much softer, shiner with no flaky skin and so much easier to wire comb to remove the loose coat. He even smells better. I have been using the Botanica Herbal Cream as a hand cream and love it.

Dear Sean,

I am writing to tell you how pleased I am with the “Botanic Natural Herbal Cream and Wash” which I have used both on myself and my dogs. As a judge of Dachshunds and Gundog breeds, I am often asked to give an opinion on a product, but it is very rare that I find something that I can honestly recommend particularly for skin conditions. This water based “Botanica natural” product means that there are no chemicals necessary in any of the products and yet they all give excellent results. I have now, also, moved on to using the “Eternal Youth cream” on my face and neck and even at my age there can be seen a positive improvement.

I started applying your wash and cream on Saturday morning. I took a photo again on Sunday morning.
I was very surprised to see a marked improvement in the wound, and it had just been 21hrs since applying your product for the first time!!!!!

I am so happy with how Whisperer’s hocks have healed using only Botanica Cleansing Wash and Botanica Anti-Itch Cream [used for severe wounds].

Dear Sean,
I have to convey my apologies for not returning your call and getting in touch sooner but work has been hectic now that the Queen is in residence in the Castle.  I must say I really impressed with your products and after treating Jake, my dog, with the wash and anti-itch, his skin has cleared up a treat and no more problems.  So a big thank you.  The midgies are quite bad this year and seem to ‘home in’ for me, I have a bad reaction to the bites and have found that using the natural herbal cream has helped in the number of bites and in soothing the affected areas.
I have put through the products but the feedback is that they think it is more for animals, do you have any leaflets re ‘humans’?
Thank you again Sean and hope to speak to you soon.

Kind Regards

Hi there, Just a message to say how great your products are! My mare is a hairy cob and she is prone to mites. I’ve been using warm water to soften the scabs and clean the wounds and applying Botanica Natural cream afterwards. The difference in 5 days is amazing! I always use botanica for cuts and wounds because of its healing properties as well as a natural fly repellent. It also helps my hands too! Thank you for supplying this product and I will continue to use it!

Dear Sean,
We met last year when I purchased some of your Botanica products at the Three Counties Show in Malvern.
Since then I have used the Cleansing Wash, Herbal Skin Cream and Spray on a regular basis for all my own animals (and husband!) but specifically for my client’s dogs who come in to be groomed and are suffering from skin irritations. A high percentage of these are Westies and all too often the routine prescription to deal with these involves steroidal cream and tablets.
I keep a tub of Anti Itch Cream to give as samples for my customers to use on their dogs and they always contact me to say how marvellous it is and where can they buy some!
A lady with Charlie, an elderly German Shepherd who used to chew his pads until they bled, phoned to say that after many months on steroid treatments, after five days of using the wash and applying the anti itch cream, he had slept through the night without a nibble.
Many other dogs who are prone to pad irritation from grass seed in the autumn or gritted roads in colder weather have also benefited from their little sample pots.
I shall certainly continue to promote these fantastic products.

Kind regards
Sue

Hi Sean,

As requested an update on the Botanica herbal cream use here at the zoo, I spoke with all the keepers involved in applying the herbal cream to our pachyderms [large mammal with thick skin e.g. elephant rhino.]and they are very happy with the improvement in the rhino’s, we found that as the weather was getting colder their skin was looking dry and flaking however since we start using the wash and moisturizer herbal cream there has been a significant improvement with no dry or flaking skin reported and a softness and fresh appearance on the new skin. We continue to use the wash and herbal moisturizer on our elephant family particularly on their feet prior to a pedicure it softens the cuticles making the cutting and filing of hard skin much easier we also use it to encourage skin softness on the base of their tails, so just a short update Sean to let you know we are very happy with the wash and herbal cream and have recommended it to many other zoo staff that have come to visit us here in Dublin, all the best for now and keep in touch.

Kind regards.

As a greyhound trainer I use a lot of Botanica products. I have been training greyhounds for many years and can honestly say that Botanica Natural Herbal Skin cream is the most effective wound healing cream I have ever used.

Greyhounds pick up a lot of injuries during training and racing including cuts, scratches and bites. If any of my dogs get a cut I immediately wash the area with Botanica Wash and then apply a generous amount of Botanica Natural Herbal Skin cream. I find this helps clean out the wound and allows for healing to quickly start. No matter how bad the wound is, with daily application, it heals amazingly quickly. The results have to be seen to be believed. Botanica Natural Herbal Skin cream has lessened the amount of time my dogs have to spend out of training. Cuts heal quicker thus allowing the dog to return to the track in a shorter time. As it is a natural product there are no worries about prohibited substances being given to the dog.
When racing on sand surfaces, greyhounds often suffer from what is called ‘Sand Toe’. This is where sand from the track gets lodged around the nail bed causing inflammation if not removed. If left unattended, this condition worsens causing pain, redness and swelling of the cuticle. If I have a dog that is susceptible to sand toe, I wash his feet in warm water and Botanica Wash when I get home from the track. This gently removes the sand and cleans the feet. You can see the results on your own hands after soaking the dog’s feet. If required, I wash the feet again the following morning and apply some Healing cream to take away any soreness.
I have also found Botanica useful in taking down swelling caused by track leg. Application of the cream following cold hosing reduces inflammation.
I recommend Botanica to all my friends. Seeing is believing. Once you start using Botanica, you will never use another cream again.
