Cold process soap recipe for a dog shampoo bar
Do you have a recipe for making a dog shampoo bar? I would like a recipe that would help get rid of doggy odor and help control fleas. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
You can pretty much use any basic cold process soap recipe for a dog shampoo. My Basic Vegetable Oil Soap with Castor Oil would be a good choice...it's the fourth recipe down on my Basic Homemade Soap Recipes
Try adding to your soap a combination of some of the following oils to form a nice blend that will both deodorize and help to repel fleas.
The following essential oils are good to use for insect repelling:
Cedarwood, Lavender, Bergamot, Basil, Catnip, Cinnamon Leaf, Clove Bud, Geranium, Lemon, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Pine, Rosemary and Sandalwood.
These are good for deodorizing:
Benzoin, Bergamot, Clary Sage, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Lavender, Lemongrass, Lime, Neroli, Patchouli, Petitgrain, Pine and Rosewood.
