Smelly pooch? No need for an expensive trip to the groomers when you can make your own all-natural shampoo scented with fresh rosemary and essential oils. Here's how:


2 cups water

1 sprig rosemary

1 tsp. to 1 tbsp. (depending on dog size) melted coconut oil

1/2 cup Dr. Bronner's baby mild soap

4 drops lavender essential oil

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar


Bring water to boil, add rosemary spring, and then remove from heat.

Allow rosemary to steep until water has reached room temperature and then remove rosemary.

In a bowl or container, mix together rest of ingredients.

Combine rosemary water with soapy concoction in a bottle.

Shake well before use!

Protip: When lathering up your pup, be sure to avoid their ears, eyes, and noses!
