The Birth of Rio’s Balm

Rio’s Relief Balm and Rio’s Relief Oil were created with love to help my beautiful horse Rio with his severe arthritis. I adopted him through the holistic horse rescue I was running at the time. Rio was 14 when I adopted him, and by the age of 18 his arthritis and past injuries had taken their toll on him. Sadly, I was on the verge of helping him cross over. Thankfully, the balm and oil changed everything!!

Within a week, Rio went from barely being able to walk, to trotting around the field with his herd buddies! To me – it was a miracle! After seeing his great results, we started using it on all the horses at the rescue. That was the “Birth of the Balm” back in 2011. Rio managed to reach the age of 28 before he crossed the rainbow bridge in 2021. Thanks to the balm and oil, I was blessed to have him in my life for 10 more wonderful years.

Inflammation comes in all shapes and sizes. After seeing what the balm and oil did for Rio, all the volunteers at the rescue wanted to start using it for their own health issues. BT Naturals products have had great results with many different health issues. We have numerous testimonials from people about that are our products for everything from an ear ache, to eczema, to arthritis. In fact, since its inception, BT Naturals products have been used effectively on humans, horses, ponies, donkeys, dogs, cats and even saved the lives of a couple of calves. Our product line is now sold exclusively through NRG Plus.
