Homemade Soap for Dogs

September 24th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Our dogs are family members – yours probably are, too. We want them to have the same benefits of natural handmade soap as we get. So we experimented and came up with some ingredients for ‘Fido’ that leaves his coat shiny, healthy and repels fleas. Oh yeah, and it also makes him smell wonderful!

Essential Oils for Pet Shampoo

Eucalyptus – this is an essential oil that has tremendous medicinal qualities. It’s a natural flea repellent and soothes  irritated skin. It’s also got anti-fungal properties in it. Use 0.5 oz in your soap mixture in a batch that makes 40 oz. of soap.

Pennyroyal – another essential oil that repels fleas and smells good. Use 0.5 oz in your soap mixture in a batch that makes 40 oz. of soap.

Citronella – this essential oil is used in outdoor candles to keep mosquitoes away. Use 0.5 oz in your soap mixture in a batch that makes 40 oz. of soap.

Cedar – we all know about the properties of cedar chests and how it repels moths. It works for fleas, too, and has a very aromatic smell. Use 0.5 oz in your soap mixture in a batch that makes 40 oz. of soap.

Use these 4 essential oils in your dog’s shampoo and you’ll be happy to have him jump into bed with you every night. His fur will be clean, shiny and smell great! (If you’re brave, you can also use it on your cat.)
