This natural rinse can aid in decreasing skin surface bacteria, healing sores, and give soothing relief from itchy skin. The rinse is applied after the shampoo has been rinsed out, as a final step to the dog’s bath.

Some have seen great results using this rinse recipe on their dog. e.g. going from raw itchy skin to wonderfully normal skin, within a couple of months. Where prior to using this soothing lavender enhanced rinse, daily doses of oral steroid were required.

The idea is to use medical intervention to treat acute conditions and allow the body to heal on its own at the same time.

This rinse is not just for dogs. If you have dandruff or itchy scalp – Try Rose’s natural rinse. You most likely have all the ingredients right in your pantry.

Rose’s Rinse

3 table spoons white vinegar

2 cups warm water

1 camomile tea bag or 1 tablespoon dried camomile flowers in tea ball.

1 table spoon lavender dried flower buds.

1 cup boiling water to steep the dried flowers

Let the dried flowers steep for about ½ hour.

If you did not use tea ball, strain out dried flowers.

Mix the tea solution with the vinegar, and remaining warm water. Cool to room temperature.

Pour onto the dogs coat do not rinse. Vinegar smell will dissipate as the dog drys.

It works great on humans too… Enjoy!

Feel free to share your experience with Rose’s Rinse.
