This DIY dog detangler spray is so easy to make! It contains all natural ingredients that detangle and freshen your dog too. An added bonus: it will save you money too! Win-win!!

Our family dog is a Malti-poo. And if you know anything about them, you know they have ALOT of hair! And it grows long quick (thank you Maltese daddy) and it can be crazy curly sometimes (thank you Poodle mama). It only takes a few weeks, and it’s out of control – we call her Floofy for a reason. She also likes to run, roll, and dig in the yard – let’s just say her hair gets messy in a flash! I have been using this dog detangler spray on her since we got her. It works amazingly – and leaves her coat soft and smelling fresh too. Are you ready learn how to make your own dog detangler spray at home? Let’s get started! 

Supplies Needed:

  • 1 ounce of Young Living* conditioner of choice (choose the one that makes the most sense for your dog’s coat. For my dog Lilly, I chose Lavender Volume but there are also Copaiba Vanilla Moisturizing or Lavender Mint Clarifying to choose from! One of these bottles will make 8 of this DIY dog detangler spray – making this bottle about $4 once you add in the essential oils! So much cheaper than the store-bought stuff AND no hidden toxins!!)
  • Lavender* essential oil
  • Rosemary* essential oil
  • Cedarwood* essential oil
  • Geranium* essential oil
  • 7 ounces of filtered or distilled water
  • 8 ounce glass spray bottle

*Please note: I can only recommend the use of Young Living conditioner and essential oils in this DIY. Young Living essential oils are the only essential oils that I would feel confident using around and on my pets, thanks to their Seed to Seal process.
