Soothing dry shampoo for dogs

This recipe includes colloidal oatmeal which is soothing for itchy, dry skin. It is also moisturizing without being oily.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/3 cup colloidal oatmeal
  • 5-10 drops essential oil of your choice (lavender, rosemary, citrus ect.)
  • 1 empty spice jar

Instructions

  1. Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, stirring slowly.

  2. Using a funnel, transfer into a spice jar. 

  3. Sprinkle into the fur, let sit for a few minutes and then brush through.

Recipe Notes

This is a great alternative to the Easy as 1,2,3 recipe.  For a dog with allergies or sensitive skin, colloidal oatmeal is soothing and moisturizing.

Arrowroot has similar properties to cornstarch. 

You can make your own colloidal oatmeal by buying organic oats at the grocery store (not instant) and then grinding them in a food processor or grinder into a very fine powder.
