Doggy Shampoo -- Weekend Recipe

Our German Shorthair, Cadi, was an outside dog.  All summer she stayed outside in her doggy condo day and night.  When she got older, however, we decided that being outside in the winter months, especially at night was too much so winter came and she moved indoors for the evenings with us.  That meant that a special treatment was needed to deal with her doggy B.O. and her outdoor friends.  This shampoo did the trick.  It smells nice and the essentials oils repeal fleas and ticks.

Fall Doggy Shampoo
  • 1 quart liquid shampoo, any type (I use baby shampoo)
  • 2 drops peppermint oil
  • 2 drops lemon oil
  • 2 drops rosemary oil
  • 2 drops lavender oil
  • 2 drops lemon grass oil
  • 2 drop pennyroyal oil (if you can get it)
Mix all together, using amounts listed. Too much of a good thing can irritate a dog's skin. (Be careful when you use essential oils. Ingested, they are highly toxic so make sure they are well mixed into the soap.)
