How was everyone’s Easter?  We had such a great day spending time at one of our favorite churches, eating and hanging out with our family and loving the BEAUTIFUL weather!  It could not have been a prettier day!  Everyone seemed to be having such a great time.  Except our dog Veda… she still may have been holding a grudge against me.

Our dog hates having baths.  It is one of her least favorite past times.  Knowing that she would be spending time with family over Easter I knew she needed a bath.  We ran out of shampoo after her last bath so I decided just to make my own DIY natural dog shampoo!  I have seen many different recipes floating around the interweb, but I ran across this one and thought I’d give it a try!

  2. This is cool! and it is much cheaper compared to buying a shampoo on your local store. I may have to try this. 

  3. This worked so well! It made all three of my dogs so clean and white and soft! All three of my dogs have patches of white fur on them and this made their white spots so bright .. I did tweak the recipe a bit — I used seventh generation dish soap and added a few drops of lavender esstental oil and a couple tablespoons of coconut oil. Thank you! 

    • Thanks for sharing with us, Rachel — we’re so glad your sweet pups are so fresh and clean! :D
