Moroccan Rhassoul Mud Baths for Your Dog
What is a mud bath? Is it better than a shampoo bath? What are the benefits of a mud bath? Is the bathing process different? These are all common questions that we have encountered when telling our clients about the beauty of a mud bath for their dogs.
Normally you try to keep your dog out of the mud, especially inside your home!
A mud bath simply put is the same concept as shampoo but using mud instead. Believe it or not using Rhassoul mud on your dog has many benefits…. more so than using regular shampoo. We are not encouraging you to have your dog roll around outside in the mud when it’s raining. That’s not what we are saying. We are however, saying that you should start giving your dogs a Ghassoul mud bath when the opportunity arises.
Mud has many benefits for your dog. It can soothe irritations by removing dead irritated skin. It can soothe hot spots. The Rhassoul mud applied to your dogs coat during the bath can help moisturize the skin and remove dandruff. This is very beneficial in the winter when the air is drier. ghassoul Mud baths have also been known to help diminish the pain of arthritis.
Rhassoul baths can also help with flea control.
Why Moroccan Rhassoul Mud?
This mud helps maintain skin and coat health while fortifying fleas.
Rhassoul contains tiny granules of dirt and clay mixed together with water. When massaging mud onto your dog’s skin, tiny granules of dirt remove dead and dry skin, which leaves soft skin behind. Once your dog’s skin is exfoliated, newer skin can be treated and conditioned with oils and moisturizers.
If your dog has dry and flaky skin, choose a Moroccan Rhassoul Mud bath containing moisturizers that will soften your dog’s skin without leaving a greasy residue behind. Exfoliating and moisturizing your dog’s skin regularly (once a month) is an excellent idea, especially if living in a dry climate or during shedding season.

How to Give Your Dog a Moroccan Rhassoul Mud Bath at Home?
Keep It Simple
Keep ingredients to a minimum. Start with a basic but high-quality Rhassoul mud. There’s no need to find a product labeled for use on dogs. Human products are much more closely regulated for safety, so it is better, and usually cheaper, to buy the Rhassoul mud you would use for yourself. Just avoid anything that has extra properties (e.g., “purifying,” “beauty” or “exfoliating”) that might indicate other additives.
Add something specific for your dog, also a human-grade supplement. Aloe vera is great for itchy or burned skin. Coconut oil will help soften rough skin and increase coat shine. Ground oats can help exfoliate, soothe irritations and soften skin. Mashed avocado will also moisturize, soothe and remove buildup on skin and coat. Adjust the amounts for the consistency. You want it to go on easily, spread well and still rinse thoroughly. Check with your vet if you have any questions about the ingredient you want to use and for what reason.
Using the Bath
Give your dog a gentle bath with your mud mixture. You can apply to dry or damp coat. Slather on gently, avoiding eye and genital areas. Massage it in well all the way to the paw pads and rinse with lukewarm or cool water. (Since you’re not using soap or other drying agents, it is not imperative to remove every trace.) Pat dry with a soft towel.
Mud baths are different than shampoos in that mud baths are made especially for your dog’s skin. Once your dog is in the tub, wet his coat thoroughly and then apply mud bath onto your dog’s skin. Once your dog is covered with Moroccan Rhassoul Mud bath, slowly massage the product onto your dog’s skin, applying light pressure. Massaging is key to giving your dog a mud bath. The light circular or linear finger movement that occurs during massages pushes and pulls mud particles against your dog’s skin, which causes exfoliation.
Now, it’s time to rinse your dog. Using lukewarm water, start rinsing your dog from head to tail. Keep rinsing until the water running off your dog is clear. If you still feel a light residue in your dog’s coat, you can wash your dog with a mild shampoo.
After rinsing your dog’s skin and coat completely, it’s best to blow-dry his coat. When blow-drying your dog, use the least amount of heat possible and keep the dryer moving. Never dry one spot of your dog’s coat, as it can burn his skin. As you’re drying your dog, you’ll notice his skin looking clear and flake-free and his coat amazing.
Applying this mud once a week to your dog’s coat will certainly help with your fight against fleas.
