Does Your Dog Sometimes Itch or Have The Occasional Hot Spot?
Rooibos tea is a great way to provide your pups with the health benefits of antioxidants and other beneficial compounds. It can help boost their immune system, reduce inflammation, promote healthy digestion, and even assist in weight loss. In this blog, we’re going to discuss how to use Rooibos tea on your pup’s skin and fur.
One of the most common uses for Rooibos tea is to create a homemade shampoo or rinse that can be used on your pup’s fur. To do this, steep a few tea bags in hot water and allow them to cool before using them as a final rinse after you’ve bathed your pet. You can add a few drops of essential oils such as lavender or chamomile to help further soothe their skin.
Most dogs will have fleas at some stage in their lifetime, regardless of whether they take Frontline or any other flea medication. So here’s what I’ve discovered.

Although dipping your furry friend in lukewarm Rooibos tea as a final rinse will deter any future fleas, the combination of the Castille soap with grapeseed oil and the Rooibos tea is tremendously effective and does help.
Rooibos tea for dogs
Rooibos is made from an African Bush and not a tea leaf, so it is naturally decaffeinated. It has low tannin levels compared to other teas and contains phenolic compounds, including flavanones and dihydrochalcones. Rooibos also assists with nervous tension, allergies, and digestive problems in dogs and is used for dermatological issues in humans and animals.
