Seaweed (fucus vesiculosus) Absolute Essential Oil
Obtained by steam distillation of the whole plant (bladderwrack seaweed) in France, it is dark greeny-brown and like all absolutes is thick & viscous.
High in iodine, seaweed has been used for centuries to help thyroid-related problems. It is also an excellent source of other minerals & nutrients (many more than are found in land plants) and has been chosen for numerous issues, especially those where there are toxins present – laminitis, wounds, abscesses, allergic reactions (especially to vaccines), cancer, colic, immune problems, liver issues (liver being the main organ of detoxification) and degenerative diseases.
Often a horse with laminitis or hoof abscesses will benefit from seaweed absolute applied to the coronary band or hoof wall, also dead sea mineral mud.
