Natural Flea Shampoo for Dog Recipe

Save

Natural flea shampoos are not only safer for pets since they do not contain harmful chemicals, they are also less expensive to make. Most ingredients may be on hand in the home and can be combined quickly to make shampoo when you need it and can be stored for several months.

Castile and Vinegar Shampoo

Things You'll Need

  • Castile soap
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Hot water
  • Bowl
  • Empty shampoo bottle

Step 1

Pour 4 cups of hot water into a bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of liquid castile soap to the water and stir. If only solid castile soap is available, grate 3 tablespoons and add to the water. Stir until there are no solids bits of soap left.

Step 2

Pour 1 cup of apple cider vinegar into the bowl and stir until it is well-blended. White vinegar may be substituted if necessary.

Step 3

Pour the soap mixture into an empty, clean shampoo bottle. Shake the bottle vigorously before each use.

Step 4

Use to shampoo your dog weekly or as needed if you find fleas on your dog. Store in the closed bottle out of direct sunlight.

Castile and Olive Oil Recipe

Things You'll Need

  • Distilled water
  • Liquid castile soap
  • Olive oil
  • Essential oils
  • Empty shampoo bottle

Step 1

Pour half a cup of distilled water into a empty, clean shampoo bottle. Add 1/3 cup of liquid castile soap and shake vigorously to combine.

Step 2

Pour a teaspoon of olive oil into the bottle. Add in 20 drops of essential oil. Scents that aid in repelling fleas include peppermint, rosemary and lavender.

Step 3

Shake bottle until all ingredients are completely blended. Before each use, shake the bottle again in case of separation. Bathe with this shampoo whenever you see signs of fleas, or weekly to prevent infestation.

Step 4

Store the shampoo in a cabinet or any area out of direct sunlight for up to six months. Only a small amount is needed since castile soap lathers well.

Tip

  • Combing your dog after bathing will help remove dead fleas and eggs.
