I have been pondering over a new soap bar for a few years and finally decided to make it today...what else better to do on a cold day right?
The bar is primarily for dogs...to repel/kill fleas and mosquitoes. It is a bar form which will be easier for you to get the soap exactly where you want it without it running right off as in liquid soaps. I have used Lard, Coconut Oil & Sunflower Oil for this bar. This combination will make for a hard, bubbly, conditioning soap bar.
In addition, I have used the following essential oils to assist in killing/repelling pests:
Citronella, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Cedarwood and just a touch of Sandalwood & Tea Tree Oils. Of course the bar also contains raw goat milk.
I plan to start offering this soap in January, so if anyone is interested, look for it on my website.
I am still thinking of a catchy name! Suggestions are welcome.
