Spa Eau Naturel

Today, we had a Spa. Mommy made a natural dip which consists of citrus, lemon grass, sea salt & of course water. Mommy used to put on Spot On for us often but nowadays, she rather use something that's natural & safer like this Citrus dip.

Orange peels, lemon juice & lemon peels, lemon grass & sea salt all boiled together.

Mommy poured the dip the last after we're all scrubbed clean.

Chloe enjoyed it very much...

Oh no! Oranges & lemons grew on her!!! Even her tongue turned into an orange peel! I knew it was a bad idea from the start.

Look what grew on her head!

Oh no! Not me too!!!

This home remedy is very good to repel ticks, fleas & even mosquitoes. The sea salt benefits those who have skin problems, dry skin, allergies & eczema like Chloe & Faith often have. The orange peels have its own natural oil which you will notice floating on the surface of the water after boiling them. Lemon has a very strong citrus smell & so does the lemon grass. The lemon juice conditions the coat. You don't even have to apply conditioner! This dip does the job. We smell so fresh now! We say, two paws up for this dip! You guys must try this out but be sure not to drink any of it okay? Because Chloe did & this is what she said...

Mom says she will have to keep that in mind when she starts bathing me this summer, for now I get to go to a spa but come summer she will be doing it herself. =)

Thanks for sharing! I should try this for my skin issues and aller-gees!

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Ooh...that sounds like a do-able and nice-smelling repellent! I'll be sure to get Mom to try it for me, since the ticks are getting heavy this time around. Mom hates the tick bath thingy that she had to give me every now and then, but had no idea what else to do...most things she find are quite hard to find here. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Thanks for sharing the formula with us girls... Hopefully mom will try it out on us (she does not like oranges, so she's thinking what she should do with the fruit after removing the peel!)

Big licks to you

Niamh said...

I am not crazy about baths and dips of any kind, even if it smells of citrus. I am sure that it is very good for you thought. Hope Chloe lost the oranges and lemons!

Your friend,

Ashley said...

Wow! That sounds like a great idea! And you were so good to pose for those silly pictures too! Way to go =)

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Amber,
That's a really good dip! Too bad more owners don't try this for their pets instead of buying chemical stuff. We like your new header, very cool! The photo of Chloe with the lemons on her head makes her look like a young male deer just growing his antlers, hehehehe! They call them Button Bucks. Have a great week.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Amber-Mae, did you have a normal wash, and then have the spa as a conditioner afterwards? I'd like to try it for Penny but I don't quite understand how it all works.

Oh ya, my mummy asked what kinda (or brand) of sea salt that your mummy use for your spa??

I've got very dry skin too...

Many lurve to you, chloe and faith
