DIY Dog Soap with Moisturizing Oatmeal, Tea Tree Oil and Lavender
*Keep away from eyes. As with most dog shampoos do not use on their face. A washcloth with clear water is best for cleansing your dogs face. this soap can be used on dogs or people but NOT on other pets such as cats as they may ingest some of the essential oils.
This soap is so easy to make using a melt and pour soap base, oatmeal and essential oils. The packaging is a snap too using supplies from Papermart:
You will need:
Glycerin soap base
Tea Tree Oul
Microwaveable glass measuring cup
Silicone candy mold or soap mold
Microwave (or you can use a pan of water on the stove)
Muslin drawstring bags:
Unstrung Merchandise tags:
Stamps (paw prints, dog themed)
Ink (waterproof brown)
Brown acrylic paint and sponge brush
Chop up 1/2 lb of soap base and place in a glass measuring cup. Melt the soap per package instructions. You can do this in the microwave or on the stove in a pan of water. Stir in 1/2 cup of oatmeal. Then add 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil. The tea tree oil is an antiseptic and a natural insect repellent making this soap perfect for dogs of people who love to be outside. Tea tree oil can smell strong so to soften the scent you can add a few drops of lavender oil if you wish. Spoon the mixture into candy of soap molds and leave to cool and harden about 1 hour.
Pop out the soap and wrap with plastic wrap. Package in hand stamped muslin bags. Attach a tag that says what kind of soap it is. This will prevent someone thinking it is a dog treat.
I hope you enjoyed making DIY Dog soap with moisturizing oatmeal, tea tree oil and lavender! Happy Crafting!
