What we Do!
Whitethorn Herbals is the online shop of Whitethorn Equine Health supplying herbal supplies for horses and dogs. Through our online and onsite herbal courses, we teach dog and horse owners how they can use herbs, essential oils and other plant extracts to help their animals restore and maintain health. We are based in Sligo which is in the North West of Ireland.
When an animal is using its sense of smell to identify medicinal compounds within a plant extract the chemical composition of the plant extract must be as pure and as true as possible to the original plant. In other words, it must not be mixed or diluted with fillers and ideally should be of a certified organic standard.
Having worked with animals and plant extracts for over 12 years we understand the importance of using only therapeutic grade – using anything less just doesn’t cut it and can be detrimental to your animals health. Aromatherapy oils are not suitable for this work.
We source our materials wherever possible from the growers themselves. When this is not an option our preference is to purchase from certified organic suppliers as well as those certified as being within the Fair Trade scheme.
We purchase sustainable over non-sustainable products and pursue a reduced carbon footprint policy wherever we can at Whitethorn Farm (including a 1200 tree forest recently planted) – not because it’s ‘fashionable’, but because we strongly believe that we have a duty of care to planet earth and our children and our children's children, that will inherit her.
