Please note: These are just the usual herbs used for this condition. I do not have bottles sitting on shelves with this recipe. I prepare each treatment from scratch for each individual for that time, using only what is best suited to that individual's unique requirement and using seasonal and freshly made herbal extracts where I can. I also often split the treatment into 2 or 3 for specific times of day where that can make a difference.


The aim of this herbal treatment is to both relieve pain and support the horse’s body in dealing with what’s causing the pain. The anti-inflammatory pain relieving herbs we use are the ones we’ve found with high vitality and working for most at this time.

We’ve also supported the nervous system in this mix. Pain is a nervous signal and a nerve that’s traumatized or over-heated or too cold is still going to send a pain signal no matter what has improved around it. A pain-killer tonic therefore needs the nerves to be supported if it is going to give wholesome relief from pain. The Bach Flowers help with the psychosomatic causes of the pain.

The anti-inflammatory herbs in the Herbal Painkiller tonic usually are:
St. John’s Wort, Jaborandi, Gauva, Meadowsweet, Mistletoe, Passionflower

The Bach Flowers we add most often are:
Honeysuckle, Vine, Walnut, Rescue Remedy

Jaborandi – Pilocarpus Jaborandi

Why Jaborandi  is in the Herbal Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer Tonic
Jaborandi is a tree of the rain forest. One of the first things a person feels when they step into a rain forest is a sort of lift in spirits and stimulation of all the glands – you perspire a little more, you feel a little more springy and gradually you find your vision clearer, your walking and breathing easier. This wholesome stimulation of the glands and subsequent increase in healing action wherever it is needed, is what Jaborandi is in this tonic for.


Gauva – Pisidium Guavaja

Why Guava is in the Herbal Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer Tonic
Inflammation is the body’s way of cordoning off an area to have it heal some injury or kill off some infection. Guava, a tropical tree, it has a combination of properties that supports the body in fighting the infection that the inflammation is all about, while soothing ulcerated areas and stimulating healing. It has a freshening effect because of its high vital energy and that is one thing every person or animal fighting an inflammation could use.


St. John’s Wort – Hypericum Perforatum

Why Hypericum  is in the Herbal Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer Tonic
St. John’s Wort or Hypericum Perforatum is a beautiful wild flower that works to relieve pain by making the nervous system calm down. It makes the body feel cushioned and comfy. We ought not to use it unless we’re also actually supporting the body in dealing with what’s causing the inflammation. Since we’re definitely doing that in a big way with the other herbs, we can afford some nervous calm and comfort.


Meadowsweet – Filipendula Ulmaria

Why Meadowsweet is in the Herbal Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer Tonic
Meadowsweet is what was had as ‘tea’ before Camellia Sinensis, which we know as the tea plant today, became popular. Its sweet homey comforting fragrance works as much to calm and clarify as its physical properties which work on the mucosal linings of the body balancing and soothing. It supplies vital energy in a form that the body can work with easily and affects tucked away areas of the nervous system relaxing places we didn’t know were taut and tense. It makes a big contribution to pain relief for all these reasons.


Mistletoe – Viscum Album

Why Mistletoe is in the Herbal Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer Tonic
Mistletoe or Viscum Album is an amazing immunity booster and vitality tonic. It is in this tonic is for its unique ability to balance body temperature. An over-heated body in pain has to be cooled down to experience relief; a tight cold body needs to be warmed to experience pain relief. Mistletoe, with all its other virtues does this one thing really well too – it balances body temperature. When you’re dealing with chronic pain, bringing body temperature to a stable warmth that supports healing goes a long way in lessening the pain and supporting overall vitality so you can heal faster and get on with life.


Passionflower – Passiflora Incarnata

Why Passionflower is in the Herbal Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Killer Tonic
Passionflower or Passiflora is used in this tonic for its ability to rehabilitate a tired body from adrenal and nervous exhaustion. Pain is demanding, inflammation is demanding, and replenishment and recovery is required at regular intervals. Passionflower helps the vital energy supplied by the other herbs in this tonic to go right through the system in a thorough fashion, instead of a spiked erratic manner. It relaxes the nerve endings and supports restfulness and calm.


The Bach Flowers we add most often are:


How Bach Flower Honeysuckle supports natural healing
Sunshiny afternoons and honeysuckle go together. The scent of the honeysuckle affects the psyche in pleasant soft ways. A comforter, a bringer of peace, a reminder of the loveliness in the world for those who believe their share of good times are all over. This flower will make you want to dream again and a little by little inspires you to look forward too.



How Bach Flower Vine supports natural healing
The Vine flower looks very much like our body’s nerve networks. Sensitive, fine and perfect. For people who feel somewhere deep down they aren’t as perfect as they ought to be, and are going crazy, almost killing themselves, trying to make everything and everyone around as perfect as possible too, this flower with its calm assurance inspires relief and rest.



How Bach Flower Walnut supports natural healing
The Walnut flower might be small, but it is well padded and sturdy. It inspires those with the tendency to forget priorities with the focus to stick with what they’re doing till they’ve finished it, to focus on quality and substance, to be content with what matters instead of being overly concerned about the opinions and ideas of others.
