    Default Minty Smelling Thing?

    Sorry for the vague title, but in my barn I always smell something minty. I know has to be some sort of liquid that somebody is using on their horse. I have smelt it at a lot of different barns. Could it be a liniment? Somebody said possibly winter green rubbing alcohol?

    I know it's a weird question but it's going to bug me if I don't find out.

    Thank you

    Oil of wintergreen is in many liniments.

    I have some spearmint Absorbine gel somewhere. It made my hands go red and swell up so I stopped using it...

    I LOVE Refreshmint! I think I love using the liniments more for the great smell than any belief they actually do anything, lol.
