Stanky Dog! A Lavender Treat for Your Favorite Stanky Dog!

Well, it was a nice enough evening to test Stanky Dog again on my, umm, really stanky dogs!
My stanky Beau!

Labs. Yeah, ya gotta love 'em. We have 3 here at Turkey Creek Lavender Farm. They love the water so it's not an issue to hose them down every day. The thing about labs is, their skin can dry out. Especially in the unending drought we're having here in southwest Oklahoma. And they have floppy ears, so I have to wipe them out if they're in the water alot. Otherwise they get stanky ears, too!

Tonight I tested Stanky Dog on Beau and Sukie. Stanky Dog has all kids of essential oils creapin' critters don't like, including lavender essential oil. Yep, good thing I have a lavender farm. Both fleas and tics don't take to lavender. And with 4 dogs...well, it could be an issue. Stanky Dog has several other essential oils in it that are safe for dogs besides lavender essential oil. Citronella, orange, lemongrass, ground oatmeal...it's much like our Oh, Bug Off! Bug Beater Soap.

I determined it's not quite where I want it to be. Needs just a little something else, so we'll keep tweaking it. The good thing is our Stanky Dog spray and Stanky Dog soap can be used by humanoids as well. Yep, we test it on ourselves, too. It did have a nice lather. Not too fluffy. I hate using anything that takes forever to get out of their coat. I formulated this with almond oil so it would be moisturizing for their fur and skin. Occasionally they sneak into the pool, and the chlorine is very drying.

So, back to the shop. Almost there, but thanks for being patient. Maybe by the time the snow flies I'll be satisfied!

On another note, I found this shopping basket at an estate sale. Thought it'd come in handy for shows and such. My youngest son was with me. He just shook his head and asked why I didn't buy the cane, too! "Har, har, very funny, son!" (Seriously, there was a cane hanging on it.) A little spray paint, a cute liner...

Don't forget to follow the link to "like" our Facebook page and share it with your friends. Remember, at 300 "likes" we'll give away the Happy Hippy Gift Set of original Hippie Chow granola, Hippie Joy Soap, and a Hippie Joy Bath Bomb all wrapped up in a bandana that doubles as a do-rag for you, or your dog! Makes a nice lavender gift basket for your favorite lavender lovin' hippie sort...

I just finished a bunch of these cute little garden markers, so guess I'll throw one in. Seems appropriate. Be cool for spearing olives and pickles, too!

Does anyone remember the cheerful guy who said "Far Out!" all the time? Big hint, I was dying to live in the Rocky Mountains! : )

Peace out.

Giveaway at 300!

Giveaways. I like 'em. You like 'em.

However, I'm not one to have a giveaway just because.

On second thought, I guess I am one to have a giveaway just because.

Just because I appreciate all the fans and followers of Turkey Creek Lavender.

Just because I want to let you know how much each of you mean to me.

Just because I think you'll really dig our products.

Just because I like round numbers.

Just because I believe in supporting small business.

Just because I love Hippie Chow. (Peace. Love. Granola. Nice!) You can go like their FB page, too!

And, well...just because.

So, in the spirit of the moment, once we reach 300 likes on our Facebook page, we will have a giveaway. So hop over and like us. Send your friends. Send your relatives. Send your dog.

The lucky winner will get a bar of Hippie Joy, a Hippie Joy bath bomb, a bag of original Hippie Chow, all wrapped up in your own do rag. Just in case you don't have one.

If you're not a bandana wearin' hippie, that's okay, too. You can use it as a napkin. Or in your bread basket. Think you won't like Hippie Joy? My Mom is 75 and she loves it. And she's not a hippie. Well, maybe a hippie at heart...

Hippie Joy is our signature blend of Lavender, and Patchouli essential oils, plus emollient Hemp Seed Oil. All natural, nothing artificial. Made in small batches. By me. Here on the farm.

So, on the day we reach 300 likes, I will have you leave a comment and enter you in the giveaway. The sooner we get there, the better for you. I think we're at 237 likes right now, so not too far to go.



Even Sukie and Sarge wear a lavender filled bandana. They're very cool dogs.

Thanks again for sharin' the love!
