Naturally Deter Pests and Kill Fleas on Your Dog With Our USDA Organic Dog Shampoo

naturally kill fleas with our organic dog shampoo

And It is the time of year I turn on the "once a week baths" protocol!

With so many of our neighbors using herbicides in their yard and fleas coming out to prey we find that bathing once a week helps to keep everything in balance. 

Luckily, in the 4-Legger pack we have 3 dogs so we get to use 3 of our shampoos that excel at naturally killing fleas without using any toxic chemicals.

If we had 6 dogs in our pack we could also use our organic lemongrass with aloe dog shampooand our organic lemongrass with hemp dog shampoo!

We started with Bailey who got a bath in our Cedar, Peppermint and Eucalyptus Conditioning Organic Dog Shampoo. It has organic guar gum added so it is a little thicker but leaves Bailey with a soft and silky coat. It smells AMAZING with hints of peppermint and a rich cedar overtone. If you are looking for a cedar dog shampoo, this won't disappoint! 

Then we moved to Piper who got a bath in our USDA Organic Neem Dog Shampoo with Sweet Orange. The subtle orange perfectly balanced with the neem to naturally keep her skin healthy and wash away pollen and any environmental toxins we picked up while on our walk. Neem also excels at naturally killing fleas while reducing skin irritation for naturally healthy skin. 

Finally, it was Tobie's turn with a bath in our USDA Organic Tea Tree Shampoo with Peppermint. The bright peppermint balances the tea tree to naturally get rid of fleas and help to keep yeast at bay. 

At the end of the bath Tobie got a spritz of our USDA Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioning Rinse. This stuff is seriously amazing. It has a hint of vinegar smell blended with lemongrass, sweet orange, ylang ylang, thyme, rosehip, sage leaf, and bilberry leaf making it a pleasant and quick rinse! This is a great rinse for dogs who need their coat tamed, have fleas or even yeast. It is a versatile rinse that is NOW available in a new 16 oz bottle!!!  

Everyone out of the tub, towel dried and they were off with the post bath zoomies! 

Finally I got everyone to come back and pose for a quick picture! 

Can you tell we love our products? We really do! Mainly because we know we have eliminated a significant source of toxins from their lives. We just wish we had known all of this before Henry Clay got sick from cancer but now that we DO know better, we can do better by our precious pups.  Henry Clay would approve!

With so many varieties it is hard to choose which one to bathe the pups in but with flea season here, we knew we had to share our flea killing favorites! 

Later this evening we'll give everyone a misting spray of our new EVICT NEAT pet safe essential oil blend from animalEO!

In the morning we'll apply EVICT RTU to their legs before they take their first potty break and re-apply as needed.

It’s all about layering exposures to natural ingredients to build a hedge of protection around our dogs without using harmful chemicals. You can too!
