Over the last 20 years the Rooibos and Chamomile Infused Oil has really taken off. This 100% natural product has proved incredibly effective on itchy skins throughout South Africa. The process of creating the product involves an infusion of the complete dried flowers and tea leaves in the oil, the result of which is also a by-product of pure Rooibos and Chamomile which still retains 60% or more of the good nutrients (sold separately as the “Rooibos Crunch”). Amazingly enough, animals seem to enjoy this slightly sludgy mix just as it is – a few teaspoons over their food adds interest and dogs will lap it up.
The next obvious step was to create an edible product which is easy to give to our animal friends, hence the birth of “ROOIBOS healthy biscuits for dogs”. These delicious small treats are hand baked only with whole wheat flour, oats, honey and eggs. The combination results in a small crunchy biscuit with the distinct flavour of Rooibos, Chamomile and honey. Even the fussiest dogs seem to love them. They sense the goodness.
Many horse lovers were buying the dog treats to feed to their horses as there were few biscuit-like treats available and none with purely natural ingredients. The Rooibos Treat recipe was adapted to exclude eggs specifically for the Rooibos Horse Treats. The treats are also a larger size than the dog treats which makes them more amenable to horses and more easily breakable to their human keepers.
Available in pack sizes; 500g and 1Kg. The biscuits are around 40mm in diameter and 4mm thick.
The biscuits are made with only the best ingredients. Recyclable packaging and badger-friendly honey ensure that the product is ethically sound. They are also meat free, as this is not a natural component of any equine diet.
“ROOIBOS Horse Treats” are very much a premium product because of their healthy ingredients and natural goodness. The same delicious recipe, egg-free, in a larger size, perfect for your horse.
A natural mould inhibitor is used which is an edible plant-based substance that negates the need for preservatives. The shelf life is guaranteed for 6 months, and as long as the biscuits are kept in an airtight container, will actually last much longer.
