Organic Dog Shampoo Featured Ingredient: Lemongrass

Organic Dog Shampoo Featured Ingredient: Lemongrass

You either love the scent of lemongrass or you hate it; but, there is no denying the analgesic (pain relieving), antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties of this amazing plant! We LOVE the rejuvenating scent in our aloe and lemongrass dog shampoo!

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon schoenanthus) has many other names such as:

  • West Indian Lemongrass  - which identifies where it is grown
  • Fever grass - as it has been used to lower fevers, treat colds, headaches, stomachaches, and muscle pain
  • Camel's hay - yes it is a great food source for camels

    Why We Love Lemongrass

    Lemongrass is a natural deodorizing agent so it can take away some of those "you rolled in what?" moments. 

    The natural antibacterial and antifungal properties make it ideal for dogs with skin issues - especially dogs with oilier skin. It works by clearing away bacteria, dirt, pollution that clog up pores while the phytonutrients work to improve blood circulation to the skin.  

    With analgesic, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties as well as a rejuvenating scent, lemongrass contains phytonutrients that improve blood circulation, which in turn can help relieve muscle pain.

    Extraction: Steam distilled

    For those of you who want to get your geek on, Lemongrass is a tall perennial plant of the Poaceae grass family which grows in subtropical climates. It grows in clumps with sharp bright green leaves. 

    Lemongrass is considered hypoallergenic, safe and non-toxic, non-irritating, non-carcinogenic, and is on the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) list maintained by the US Food and Drug Administration. While it rarely causes a reaction, as with all natural ingredients, there is a slight potential for your dog to be allergic to lemongrass - just like one of the humans @ 4-Legger who is allergic to Lilium candidum flowers -  common lilies!
