Mud rash / Mud Fever is a horrible issue to have to deal with in our horses. Here at the hub we recommend to scrub the legs with warm water and a wash such as the Botanica Cleansing Wash. Work it into a lather and then leave on for 10-15 minutes to allow contact time for the anti-bac to kill the bacteria. Sometimes you need to soak the leg to loosen the scabs. The legs must be dried after cleaning the scabs off, some use a dry towel or a hair dryer if the horse will allow. Repeat at least twice a day, or whenever the horse is exposed to muddy conditions.
- Do not bandage as this promotes moistness.
- Healing creams & Barrier creams can be applied after cleaning and drying the legs. Barrier creams can also be used as a preventative to reduce or prevent mud rash. We recommend the Botanica Natural Herbal Cream.

So . . . Why do we recommend Botanica’s natural herbal creams, washes and sprays for topical application, what makes them sooo good:
Botanica International’s natural and non-toxic preparations are prepared using a range of powerful plants provided by nature. The products are for external use and contain combinations of Aloe Vear, Comfrey, Oil of Lavender (natural insect repellent) and Tea Tree oil (natural antiseptic), all of which have proven results. These natural ingredients are contained in a special cream base with moisturising agents.
Botanica Products have been tested and confirmed to contain no prohibitive substances by the LCH in France.
Botanica International Ltd was established in 2005 to cater for the growing awareness of natural products and to utilize the wonders of Nature’s Healing Energy.
The Herbal range contains a combination of natural ingredients, all of which have proven beneficial properties. Botanica’s Herbal system works to promote healthy cell growth and complete recovery without scarring.
Traditionally we would look for a cream to form a barrier on a cut, but in fact a heavy thick cream can slow down the healing process on two levels. It can hold dirt around the affected area and it can prevent infection from getting out!
Botanica’s wash cleanses the area and helps to remove any dirt or scabbing which may have formed. This part of the process is vital as it keeps the affected area open and draining, to allow any infection that may be present to drain out.
The wash is followed by Botanica’s Herbal Cream which is readily absorbed into the skin. It activates the healthy cells and the powerful combination of the herbal and the soothing properties of the natural oils get to work on a swift, complete recovery.
Daily washings and cream application will reduce the affected area while continuing to liberate any infection.
