                       Dog Soap

This soap is a bit special, we humans can use it, there is nothing in it that will do us any damage, quite the opposite! It would actually be great if you are going anywhere tropical and you want to ward off any unpleasant creatures that may nip or bite!  It is made from Olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, rapeseed oil and castor oil. It is a very bubbly soap which is great for bathing fido! The best bits come in the form of the extras added just for you pooch, these are Vitamin E for a lovely shiny coat, aloe vera gel and jojoba oil to sooth their delicate skin, neem oil which is an excellent moisturizing oil and contains various compounds that have insecticidal and medicinal properties. Then come the essential oils blended to ward of fleas, ticks and bugs in general, these are; eucalyptus, peppermint, citronella, lavender,lemongrass, tea tree and cedarwood. 

So it is jam packed with great oils and essential oils and it smells great! Your pampered pooch will love you for it!!
