Homemade Dog Deodorant for your Smelly Pooch - Rachel Teodoro

Homemade Dog Deodorant for your Smelly Pooch

Smelly dog spray, doggie deodorant, call it whatever you want, but I'm calling it our new favorite thing. Our sweet Sophie smells. Part of it is because of her long luxurious locks and the other part is deferred maintenance. If you were reading along last week and saw my random ramblings, you would see that I mentioned how her grooming costs more than a trip for me to the fancy salon. It's not easy to give a bath to an aging overweight dog, so we needed to find something that would help with her smell. I've been trying things for ages, but I finally think I found something that works. Not only that, it's not filled like alcohol the way some of the store-bought sprays are. This is all natural and conditioning, something you both will love.

You will need:


Spray bottle {I get mine at the dollar store}
16 ounces of water
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
10-12 drops of lavender oil
15 drops of tea tree oil

Mix everything together in your spray bottle and give it a shake. 

You'll find that the coconut oil will be good for conditioning, the lavender is a good calming and anti-itch agent and the tea tree oil will repel fleas and acts as a natural deodorant. 

Essential oils can be harmful to your dog if they aren't diluted properly. Make sure you use plenty of water and cover their eyes and face when spraying your homemade dog deodorant.

This spray is safe to be used daily on your smelly pup. Just follow the precautions I listed above.
