Vervain 900g

Helps to support the nervous system and promote calmness.

Works well with chamomile for a herbal blend that is legal in all competition rules and a good alternative to Herbal Calm for the competition horse. Please see Herbal Calm Compete.

As with all calmers, it is important to also consider all factors affecting a horses behaviour, such as hard feed, turnout, pain, fit of tack etc.

Feeding Guidelines: Feed 20-30g per day

Feeding as an Infusion

Many herbs, including Vervain, can be fed in their dried form, but this may mean that it sometimes takes a while for full benefits to be seen.

There is a way to speed up the effect! By simply making an infusion with the herb, the active constituents are made more readily available and are more easily absorbed by the horse.

Ideally, add a ½ litre/pint of boiling water to the herbs to be given that day. When cooled, the whole infusion (including the herbs) can be used to dampen down the horses feed. If access to a kettle is not practical, soaking overnight in cold water will also help to release the active constituents.
