2 in 1 Pooch Shampoo


100g Castille Liquid Soap
30g Coconut Oil
50g Glycerin
1 tsp Xanthan Gum
200g Water
½ tsp Citric Acid
1 tsp Preserver

*Essential oils* Optional


  • In the small glass beaker, add Castille liquid soap and Coconut oil. Melt together under gentle heat.
  • In another small beaker, add the Xanthan Gum and Glycerin. Mix together with the back of a spoon until smooth paste forms.
  • Add Water, citric acid and Xanthan gum/glycerin mix to a bigger glass beaker (400g). Mix for a few seconds using a hand blender
  • If you are adding essential oils, add them to the castle and coconut mix, making sure it has cooled down again.
  • Add the castile mix to the water mix. Blend with a hand blender at low speed for a few seconds to make sure mixture is smooth. Do not mix for too long or too fast as it will cause bubbles.
  • Pack into bottles with a pump

Side Note:

  • I made this for my Jack Russel who has very sensitive skin. The coconut oil and glycerin give the skin good conditioning while cleaning
  • Only use ½ tsp of citric acid. Dogs skin has a higher pH than humans skin, so the shampoo does not need as much citric acid as a standard hair shampoo
  • Add Essential oils for extra care. Tea tree oil and eucalytptus oil are good for repelling flies and fleas
  • Use less essential oil than you would for your own products, at least half
