Soap for dogs
The recipe for this soap is the same one I use for washing human hair but in solid form. The size is 45gms. The ingredients are as follows:
Aqua, Glycerine, Sorbitol, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Laurate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Oleate, Sodium Myristate, Sodium Chloride, Cocus Nucifera Oil, Glyceryl Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Thiosulphate, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium Iminodisuccinate, C 12 –18 Fatty Acid, Tetrasodium Etidronate.
I have used four different fragrances in these soaps which help to keep the dog’s coat clean (of course) and to help prevent fleas, flies and other annoying insects. Some fragrances have insecticidal and antibacterial properties which help keep the dog’s skin free from irritating problems. They are as follows:
- EUCALYPTUS ESSENTIAL OIL
It is a natural antiseptic with antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties making it highly
effective in treating wounds, minor cuts, acne, boils, insect bites, skin infections and helps to stimulate hair follicles by stimulating blood vessels to constrict. This in turn gets more blood flow to the follicles and encourages healthy hair development. Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Greek, and other European styles of medicine have incorporated it into the treatment of a range of conditions for thousands. Eucalyptus is an effective insect repellent and insecticide. In 1948, the United States officially registered eucalyptus oil as an insecticide and miticide, for killing mites and ticks. It could also be a viable option for use in eco-friendly products to control houseflies.
