Natural Dog Soap Bars

Pet Soap For Our Little Buddies!
3 oz. Olive Oil (*I infused mine with flaxseed first and oatmeal, which helps with itchy skin)
3 oz. Coconut Oil (76 degree)
3 oz. Palm Oil
2 oz. Rice Bran
1 oz. Castor Oil
4 oz. Water
1.8 oz. Lye
0.17oz. Peppermint Essential Oil
0.17oz. Lemongrass Essential Oil
0.07oz Eucalyptus Essential Oil

(Note: you may use whichever essential oils you deem therapeautic or pleasing.  A few other good choices might be lavender or citronella.  You can also add a bit of glycerine for luster, shine, and softness)

Combine oils, then add lyed water solution to oils, stir til trace.  Put into fun molds, such as those shaped like dogs bones!

This idea came from a YouTube video by Soaping101.  Great stuff there!  I'll be making this one for my pup shown above.
