Today I'm trying something I've been wanting to try for a while - Doggie Shampoo Bars!
I picked this particular recipe from Soaping 101, because the olive oil is infused with flax seeds and oatmeal, which sounded really nice (even for us humans!). Be sure you research your fragrance and essential oils (and any other additives) before using them to make sure they are pet safe. This is the recipe I used:
After stirring it in, I heated it gently for 1 hour (if I was using a larger amount of oil in the bigger crockpot, I would have heated it on low for 2 hours), then I turned off the crockpot and let it sit, covered, overnight. This is what it looked like after 24 hours:
I then strained the oil through a coffee filter, the fine mesh did an excellent job of removing the pulp:
I poured my soaps into the mold and texturized the tops:
Here they are all in the mold:
And the video....hope you enjoy! :D
