Our little family dog, Jessie, has a continual itch and scratch. She has a bath and half an hour later she is back to scratching her little body. We have tried changing her diet, rinsing her in lavender/cedarwood solution, and yet it has continued. Then, I heard about someone who used as neem oil solution on her dog to help with a skin condition, and it worked very well. So I made a neem soap and washed her in that. It worked fantastically. she needs to be bathed in it once a week, but what a relief this has been for her. This is how to make it:-
Cut into pieces, 100g pure glycerine soap and place into a glass jug or other suitable container. Place the jug into a pot of hot water and melt over a medium heat.
Once the soap is melted, add 10ml moisturising oil. I added palm oil. Mix until all melted. Remove from heat.
Add 5ml Neem oil (Organic and cold pressed). Mix well to ensure all ingredients are well blended.
Pour into a mold and allow it to set.
When the soap has cooled and hardened, it is light brown in colour. It does not foam a lot, but the results are very good.
One happy little Jessie.
