Directions for use
Doggie Salt Soak is suitable on it’s own as a gentle cleanser to replace shampoo.
Dissolve 1/2 cup – 1 cup of Doggie Salt Soak in a bath or tub of warm water. DO NOT LET YOUR DOG DRINK THE WATER AS EPSOM SALT CAN CAUSE STOMACH UPSETS AND DIARRHEA IF INGESTED. Soak your dog in the water for 10-15 mins. Pour all over body avoiding face and eyes. Do NOT rinse clean with freshwater – Doggie Salt Soak is intended as a leave-in product.
For really dirty dogs, Doggie Salt Soak can be used in conjunction with our Neem oil Doggie ‘Poo Shampoo Bar but be sure to thoroughly rinse all the suds from your dogs skin.
The Benefits of Epsom Salt for Dogs
Epsom salt is a naturally occurring mineral compound consisting of magnesium and sulfate. It’s uses are wide and varied as a natural remedy in beauty, the garden and around the house. Magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin to provide the benefits to the body. Magnesium is crucial to all cell function in the body and regulates the other essential minerals such as calcium, potassium and sodium. Just as humans need magnesium, so do dogs to keep them functioning at their optimum – it is the second most needed mineral in the body after potassium. Magnesium helps muscles and the heart and the nervous system to function properly. That is why an epsom salt bath can do wonders to ease and relax the muscles and nerves after a long hard and stressful day. Magnesium deficiency symptoms include irregular heart rates, high blood pressure, seizures, bone pain, nervousness, irritability, depression and muscle spasms. Magnesium can also be obtained through food, but sometimes digestive problems or other conditions may prevent maximum absorption. An average dog needs 150mg of magnesium every day to stay healthy.
Sea Salt for Healthy Skin
Sea salt is loaded with essential minerals and can cleanse and heal the skin of inflammation, dryness and bacterial and fungal infections. Swimming in the sea is not only fun but actually really good for the health of your dog. Our Salt Soak may ease the itchiness and irritation caused from skin allergies and rashes.
Oatmeal is a tried and true ingredient for help with sensitive skin issues such as redness, itchiness, inflammation and dryness. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and can create a protective skin barrier to hold in moisture in the skin and prevent dryness and itchiness.
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated coconut oil is readily absorbed by the skin and will leave it feeling soft and moisturised.
Dog-safe Blend of Essential Oils
Our essential oils have been blended and safely diluted for use on your dogs skin. Lavender essential oil is gentle, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory whilst promoting a calming effect on your dog. Cedarwood essential oil is known to repel insects and also is good for relieving dry and inflamed skin. Lemongrass essential oil is another insect repellent with antimicrobial properties.
