Mud Bath for dogs! Mineral Mud can help your dogs skin.


What is Mud Bath and where is it from?

Here at Peanut and Pickle, we hand harvest our Muds from the Austrian Alps, where for millennia the glacial snows have thawed and flowed down the mountain bringing a gift from nature. These Muds are finely ground mineral dust, rich in quartz and mica which imparts its beneficial minerals when applied to the skin. They can be used to remove dead coat, draw out impurities and remove dead skin cells.

Minerals in the mud

Mica - Improves the feel of the skin
Bentonite - A natural detoxing aid for the skin. Incredibly effective in breaking down excess sebum on the skin which can cause skin irritation.
Silica/Quartz - These minerals help rejuvenate the skin by moisturising and absorbing excess oil and sebum

Mud For Shedding
The mud helps moisturise the coat making for easier undercoat removal. During the massage process, the loosened coat will latch on to the mud and have easier removal when rinsing.

Mud For Sensitive Skin

Our mud is amazing for calming inflamed skin. Using natural healing powers found in quartz and bentonite clay, it soothes and rejuvenates the skin. For maximum effect, apply onto dry coat and leave for 20 minutes. This will help break down excess sebum and reduce itchiness.

How to use for shedding

Step 1. Time to get muddy

Apply generous layer to dogs coat (Preferably a dry coat for maximum effect however can be applied on a wet coat to make it more spreadable), making sure to cover the extra hairy areas.

Step 2. Time to let it dry

Massage into the coat for 5 minuets working from the neck to tail following the flow of the coat. Use a brush to massage into skin and to help remove excess loose coat. Let the Mud soak into the skin and coat.

Step 3. Time to Shampoo

Fill jug or mixing bottle with diluted shampoo.

For shampoo i recommend the Lavender, but don't worry if you don't like lavender then we have plenty to choice from in our shampoo range click here to go to it.

Use a shower puff or mitten to massage the diluted shampoo over the mud on the dry coat. This will help deep clean and the friction from the shower puff will help remove extra hair that needs to shed.

(This can be skipped by using a hydrobath straight onto the coat. Once the whole dog has lathered shampoo rinse and then shampoo again like normal.

How to Use for Sensitive Skin!

Step 1.

Apply generous layer to dogs skin/coat, making sure to cover the inflamed areas.

Step 2.

Leave the mud to soak into the skin and work its magic. Don't massage, let the minerals absorb into the skin and the clay to absorb the excess sebum. For best affects leave for 20 mins.

Step 3.

Rinse and shampoo twice. Use our antibacterial shampoo for extra itchy pooches. The rosemary oil within the shampoo also aids in the break down of unwanted bacteria and soothes the skin.

Step 4.
Ensure dog has been fully dried after. Leaving a wet coat can irritate the skin more.
