THE GENTLE BARN SPOTLIGHTS GENTLE BALM FOR ANIMALS July 08 2016

BlackWing Farms Joins The Gentle 52 Program to Help Support Nationally Expanding Foundation. 

Santa Clarita, CA (July 10, 2016) – The Gentle Barn continues to attract cutting edge innovators and the most socially responsible businesses in the country to their Gentle 52 Program.  The Gentle 52 program was established by Jay Wiener, co-Founder of The Gentle Barn, to promote Corporate Social Responsibility and highlight companies, during special events and public tours, that are committed to offering lasting solutions that help improve the world. The newest sponsor to join the class of 2016, BlackWing Farms, is a 15 year old company and long time Gentle Barn sponsor that specializes in developing flower-based balms and sprays that help calm and improve animal behavior, especially in stressful situations.

As a dedicated animal sanctuary, home to more than 300 animals in three states, The Gentle Barn is often faced with managing situations after a rescue or during the rehabilitation process, when an animal’s behavior is unpredictable due to stress.  The simple and easy application of the Gentle Balm helps to soothe the animal’s temperament and improves the animal’s general wellbeing.

“The Gentle Balm is basically aromatherapy for animals,” says Ellie Laks, Founder of The Gentle Barn. “Animals have a much greater sense of smell than humans do.   Whether we’re sheep shearing or trimming hooves or bringing in an animal from a rescue, once the balm is introduced to the area with the animal, we see an immediate effect.  The animal is less afraid and more receptive to accept our help.”

BlackWing Farms, maker of essential balms and sprays that are safe and effective for dogs, cats, horses and 21 other types of animals, is committed to providing products that correct problematic behaviors, attitudes, emotions and barriers to learning through all-natural, plant-based remedies.  The Gentle Balm is made from olive oil, candelilia wax, vitamin E, and lavender essential oil. Together these ingredients provide an atmospheric aromatherapy-like supplement effective for animal use and safe around humans.  Tried and tested, BlackWing Farms’ balms are perfect for Animal Rescue Services, Animal Shelters and Sanctuaries, Veterinarians, Animal Dentists, Trainers, Groomers, pet owners, kennels and barns.  To learn more about BlackWing Farms’ products, please watch this short video:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmifIxnzNnM.

“We are so excited to sponsor The Gentle Barn Gentle 52 program and help raise awareness of how to treat animals with compassion,” explains Meg Harrison, Founder of BlackWing Farms.  “It is very important to contribute to the global movement towards a better world.  I strongly believe in social responsibility and urge other entrepreneurs and businesses to support The Gentle Barn’s mission.”
