Gentle dog shampoo

About as pure a shampoo as you can get, this recipe is detergent-free; in addition, the healing properties of Aloe Vera gel helps to sooth skin irritations.
Makes 2 cups of shampoo

2 c water
2 Tbsp aloe vera gel
2 tsp liquid castile soap
1 tsp vegetable oil or glycerin
Combine all ingredients in a jar. Shake to blend. Get the pet's coat wet, pour on the shampoo a few tablespoons at a time, lathering as you go. Work the shampoo in with your hands. Rinse thoroughly.  Towel them dry.
I add 15 drops peppermint essential oil for fleas.
