This DIY natural horse shampoo recipe is one of my favorites to have on hand. I use it for my horses, dogs, kids, and my own hair with great results. I love all the natural horse products on the market today, but not always the price tag! In my experience, this recipe works just as well as the $30+ per liter brands and is super easy to make.
The main ingredient in the top natural shampoos is usually a coconut based soap, and for this recipe, I always use Dr. Bronners Organic Liquid Castile Soap. In my experience, it’s by far the best in quality and price. In a pinch, you can use it straight from the bottle, but the addition of oils, glycerin, witch hazel and essential oils really gives it an extra boost (it can also be too drying on its own). Since I have lots of essential oils I usually go for the unscented option, but you can also choose one with it already added (Tea Tree is awesome!) to save a step.
