Herbal wash for dogs

Herbal wash for dogs
Make a herbal extraction from any of the following insecticidal herbs, which all grow easily in your garden – rosemary, lavender, southernwood, lemon verbena, catnip, basil, lemon grass, citronella pelargonium.
• Half fill a clean plastic bucket with any of these herbs (either singly or in combination) cut up roughly, and fill the bucket with very hot water.
• Cover with a lid and allow to draw for 1-2 hours, or overnight. Strain the herbal water and use it when washing or rinsing the dog.
• Dogs enjoy the natural smells of herbs, and soon realise that this special water soothes their skin. It is strangely pleasant to have a herbal-smelling dog at your side!
