The essential oil of lemongrass is stimulating and invigorating. It is considered an excellent physical tonic and boosts the immune system, which helps recovery from an illness. It also has great anti-bacterial properties, and has the added bonus of acting as a natural insect repellant. Combined with Calendula, its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties work beautifully for the skin while keeping the pesky critters away.

What makes the Rosie & Friends line so special? The line is unique for many reasons. It is considered a therapeutic line versus just a spa line. There are no artificial ingredients, no artificial dyes, colors, fragrance, preservatives, sulfates, parabens, petroleum and of course no animal testing. They are friendly to your dog as well as the environment.
Why SLS free and what is SLS? SLS is short for Sodium Laurel Sulfate a harsh cleansing chemical that is also found in many industrial strength cleaners. It is the agent that causes our soaps to have all of those extra bubbles. The truth is it is not needed in animal shampoos. Their furs can be cleaned equally well without the harsh chemicals, and when a dog is already itching from allergies or other skin issues, it is just one more thing that can cause them to be irritated. So keeping the shampoo pure with as few additives as possible allows for the dog to get the most from the other beneficial oils and ingredients.
How do I use the shampoo and conditioner? The products are meant to be used as treatments so spending a little extra time in the process gives the product a chance to do its thing. For example while using the conditioner, massage it into the coat until the product has a chance to reach the skin. Work it in so the skin gets the benefit of the oils. Your dog will appreciate the massage as well. The key is allowing the oils to penetrate the irritated areas.
What if my dog has no skin issues? Why use the products? The natural shampoos and conditioner will keep your dog’s skin and coat healthy. So many commercial products use artificial ingredients including Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and fragrance which actually cause skin irritation. Dogs really do have sensitive skin and appreciate the natural products.
