Can't really call it a home remedy... unless you have your own hives, but cold extracted honey - particularly Manuka honey - is awesome for wounds & anti bacterial care.

I'm not sure if this will help but I'll offer the idea anyway. Maybe someone can use it?

My horse colic's very easily. Therefore, I have started giving him one cup of Psyllium husk. Which is a product made from the outsides covering of the seeds. It contains a high amount of fiber, therefore helps to unblock and move things through the horses system faster.

Chingas, if your horse suffers colic because of eating on overgrazed sandy ground or such - so ingests a lot of sand with his food, then psyllum is an effective measure to reduce the symptom of this, but if the colic is due to other reasons - ulcers, bad feed/practices, hind gut acidosis, etc, that's not what he needs.

Not sure what you mean by home remedies exactly? Apple cider vinegar, Tea Tree oil, beeswax, honey, copper sulphate, salt, Epsom salts.... etc, etc. But you have to buy, not make all that, so do you consider they're under the banner?

Not sure if this counts but;
Dish soap.
It works wonders on my mares coat, especially if you get the moisturizing stuff that doesn't dry your hands out, but I've had nice luck with even the store brand. You can look too- in all her pictures she is soooo shiny, also because of a cup of corn oil a day ;)
Also, during the summer I like to buy the bulk Gatorade mixes, and give her one little scoop of it a day. Wouldn't be a good idea if your horse is sensitive to sugar, but its a tasty way to get some electrolytes into them. It was actually recommended to me by the vet xD

Buy honey from a local bee hive sources, It does wonders for pollen alergies. The honey has to be from the same area you live to work.
Don't confuse "natural" with safe or less toxic. Most things are "natural" arsenic, hemlock and poison ivy are natural.
