Non-Toxic Homemade Dog Shampoo
I like to prepare this shampoo in two ways: a spray and a traditional thicker shampoo. It’s nice to have the spray handy if you want to do a quick rinse outside with the hose but I prefer a thicker version when we wash our pups for a good scrub down in the tub!

Directions for the Spray on Shampoo (quick rinse):
In your container, combine the water, 1 Tablespoon baby shampoo, and 3 drops of the essential oil.
Place the funnel in the top of your spray bottle and pour the contents into the spray bottle.
Be sure to shake the bottle before each use. Best used right after it’s made.
Great for doing a quick bath where you don’t want to get the dog too sudsy.
It will take away the stink and is great for only a quick rinse.
Directions for Normal Shampoo:
Pour your Burt’s Bees shampoo (entire bottle) into the pourable container.
Place around 15 drops lavender essential oil in the container as well. If you want something stronger scented, use peppermint but only do about 10 drops if using the peppermint.
If you would like to combine scents, be aware if you are using any hot oils. Hot oils you will want to use less of. Hot oils shouldn’t exceed 10 drops per bottle of shampoo whether you’re combining or not.
Other oils, use 15 drops (that should be the total drops of all oils used when added together).
Mix with a spoon, gently.
You can attempt to use your funnel at this point but I have found it’s easiest to simply pour it back into the bottle straight from the container.
Just be sure to hold it above the container so the stream of shampoo is small enough to fit in the top of the bottle nicely!
