Is Your Dog Shampoo Harming Your Dog?
One common ingredient most dog soaps and shampoos have is glycerin, although it helps moisturize the skin it does not lather so much. If you want to make dog shampoo that lathers well then try using liquid dish soap as a substitute for glycerin. If your dog has sensitive skin it would be better to opt for an unscented all-natural liquid dish soap.
Some of the items you may need are Mixing bowl (medium size), liquid dish soap, aloe vera gel, plastic squeeze bottle, apple cider vinegar, citronella oil, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil and cedar oil. For more details click on the link below.
Combine two cups of water with a quarter cup apple cider vinegar in a plastic bottle.
Add a quarter cup citronella oil to the mixture and shake the bottle to combine the ingredients.
Add 2 tablespoons each peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil and cedar oil. These essential oils will help to repel fleas while also moisturizing your dog’s coat.
Squeeze in 1 teaspoon all-natural liquid dish soap if you want your shampoo to lather. If you simply want to kill and repel fleas, however, you can omit this ingredient.
Shake the bottle to combine the ingredients before using the shampoo. Use this shampoo only if you see fleas on your dog, because overuse of this or any shampoo can dry out your dog’s skin and cause irritation.
