Udderly Fresh Lavender Dryer Sachets & Dog Shampoo Soap Review

I have a really nice company to tell you about today called Udderly Fresh Soaps and I really love what they have done with some of their incredible products. I was sent their Lavender Dryer Sachets and their Dog Shampoo for Charlie to try!

You are gonna love each and every one of these products and even the ones I did not get to try because if they are as good as these products, then they have to be pretty darn superb themselves!

Above is the Lavender Dryer Sachets. They are amazing! I know that you know that I love the scent of lavender and any time I can get it in my laundry, I will jump at the chance. This made our towels especially smell the best ever. I love coming out of a nice hot shower and being wrapped up in a towel with my favorite scent! Smells clean and fresh!

Just 2 quick steps and you are done!

*For best results, simply squeeze sachet before placing in the dryer.
*Sachets will last 6-10 dryer cycles depending on length and temperature of dryer.
If you love the scent of lavender, then you will love that they can also be used anywhere else that you might want that fresh, clean smell!  Lavender Dryer Sachet are also great for putting in drawers, cars, closets, or anywhere a fresh fragrance is needed.
Awhile back I got to review their Laundry Soap also so I wanted to tell you about that also. 

Now, I am not sure which one I got since it just says Udderly Fresh Laundry Soap and they have 3 scents, plain, lavender and orange. I am suspecting I might have gotten plain because you could definitely smell lavender but because all of my other products except the lip balm are lavender and the scent from the soap and lotion bar are very pronounced, it's hard to tell but I believe it's plain, which is fine. I don't think Mike would like lavender smelling uniforms anyway!

Here are the reason's they gave for you to switch over to natural laundry soaps:
•All Natural Ingredients: Our Laundry Soap is made with all natural ingredients that are good for your skin and the environmentally. It's also been tested and proven to clean as good or better than the leading laundry soap brand.  
•Great for all washers: Our natural laundry detergent is safe and works great for all washing machines including; front loading, top loading, and High efficiency machines. •Safe for septic systems: Our handmade laundry detergent is 100% biodegradable and will not harm your drains or septic system.  
•Super concentrated: It takes less than 2 tbsp per regular load and our package will clean 32 large loads of wash. If you own a high effeciency machine you need only use a pinch therefore easily giving you nearly 90 washings.  
•Multi-purpose cleaner: Many people are using our laundry soap as a multi-purpose cleaner for their floors, upholstery, carpets bathrooms and kitchen too.  
•Good for the environment: Because our laundry soap is made from all natural ingredients, it's good for the environment. We also offer refills so you can keep the tub and use it over and over again.  
•Custom Scents: Our natural laundry Detergent comes unscented but can be scented with lavender or orange pure essential oils.  
•Affordable: Our 100% natural laundry soap is very affordable and quite comparable in price to the typical name brand laundry soaps.
Laundry Soap Ingredients: Olive, Coconut, Palm, Goat Milk, Sodium Hydroxide, Grape seed oil, Sodium Borate, Sodium Carbonate.

Doesn't sound like there is alot of chemicals in their soaps, does it? I am gonna give this some serious thoughts and if you have noticed, I have been leaning more and more towards the natural and homemade products as time has gone by.

I am trying an experiment to see if I can get rid of some of my health issues, especially the Fibromyalgia and some of the other milder health issues that might benefit from being away from so many chemicals, so if you have noticed and wondered what was going on, well, that was it and I will continue to seek out natural and homemade items so if you know of someone or a company that you think I need to review, please let me know.

I am on a quest to see if we can solve some serious health issues and it takes a town to raise the children. Remember that old saying, so let's apply that to finding some answers to chemicals in our products.

Here is one last reason why you should give Udderly Fresh a chance on their Laundry Soap:

Why You Should Stop Using Name Brand Laundry Detergents!
Typical laundry detergents contain harsh and harmful chemicals and fragrances that attach to your cloths during the wash leaving an invisible chemical residue on your cloths.  
The problem is that the harsh chemicals in typical laundry detergents stay in your cloths even after they are washed, rinsed and dried.  
These chemicals are then absorbed into your skin causing short and long term skin problems including: rashes, dry itchy skin, eczema, and other skin irritations in children and adults alike.  
Also, studies show that some of the chemicals in typical name brand laundry soaps have been proven to contain slow acting poisons that are likely to cause cancer later in life.
I loved the Dog Shampoo that we were sent to try! Charlie has the awfullest allergies and we can only keep them at bay by giving him a very short buzz haircut and remember, he is suppose to be a Yorkie! Look at these pics! This was before his haircut when he had a normal length for a Yorkie.

This is before the buzz cut and now here is after the buzz cut:

Charlie is feeling much better and has he got some energy! This little fella is like a whirlwind of activity since his hair was all taken off! He feels like a new man and does not bite, chew or mangle his hair and cause sores from the constant scratching. Not to mention the Vet bills and shots and other meds that were piling up! 

So, we did what one Pet site told us to do and that was cut his hair off as short as we could, and I will be darned if it all went away! I wonder if it is man who made these dogs to look this way, not their natural look. Or something has changed over the years in how we feed them, treat them or something because the Vet said it is becoming an epidemic seeing dogs in all the time with the same problems that Charlie had.

He is safely off all of his allergy and itching medicines and is spry as a young man should be. So, my next step is using one of these natural soaps and see what happens. What do you think? Here is what Udderly Fresh's pet soap looks like:

Here is what they say about their Pet Soap:
We have the best dog shampoo, guaranteed!  
•All natural dog shampoo: Our dog shampoo is made with all natural ingredients including fresh goat milk, natural herbs from the garden and pure essential oils that clean and condition its coat, leaving your dog with a long lasting freshness you will surly love.

•Protection against fleas and ticks: Our dog shampoo will help provide natural protection against fleas ticks mosquitoes and other insects.  
•Keep your dog smelling cleaner longer: The natural ingredients in our dog shampoo will cleans your dogs coat and leave it smelling fresh and clean longer than typical dog shampoos thus allowing you to have a much cleaner and fresher smelling dog between those dreaded bath times.  
•Bath your dog fast and easy: Bathing your dog is easy and fast with our natural dog shampoo bar. You will have more control over the entire dog bathing experience without a bottle that you have to open and close while trying to control your dog.
Here is some other info on the dog shampoo bar:

The bottom line: Our dog shampoo will leave your dog cleaner and smelling fresher longer between baths than other dog shampoos on the market today.
Directions: Simply wet your dog down and rub their coat with the shampoo bar until you produce a rich lather. Next, work the soap into your dogs coat with your hands and rinse your dog well. Finally, rub your dog dry with a towel and give your dog a big hug. It’s that easy.
Give your four-legged companion a little TLC and try a Doggie Shampoo Bar today. We know you’ll both love it!

This Shampoo Bar was totally awesome! Charlie's itching is under control and his coat is a lot smoother and shinier! I love that all the ingredients in this shampoo bar are all natural so nothing can hurt him. I think you will agree that having no chemicals in any product is a good thing and that less is better in a lot of products that we use on our pets and for ourselves!
Here is what I found out about Udderly Fresh by digging around:
What started out as a need for a healthy alternative to baby formula grew into an exciting partnership and adventure in natural skin care. Udderly Fresh was started by one great friendship and two minds that think alike…most of the time.  
Bonnie and Charise finally stopped talking about the possibilities of sharing their knowledge of goat’s milk and goat milk products, and created Udderly Fresh so people like you can enjoy the benefits of goats milk, herbs, essential oils, and high quality oils in prodducts such as soap, shampoo, lotion, laundry soap and even insect repellent.

What an interesting concept. I've never used goatsmilk cosmetic or bath products but your review makes me want to order some.

I'm definitely going to go to their site. I really love Lavender and the smell of Almond Oil. Your review has certainly convinced me to check out their products. My favorite ice cream growing up was the orange Dreamsicle. :) So I'm definitely sold on the Lip Balm. lol

Such a cute puppy! I miss having one so much. I'd love to try the Laundry Soap. I love that it is all natural. One of my new years goals is to switch all my body products to all natural. Your site is so helpful for that!

Udderly Smooth has some great products, but I thinkmy favoriteis the lavender soap

Mer said...

The doggy buzz cut is adorable and I'd love to hear how the pet shampoo works out for you. I'm trying to switch over to natural products for myself, and why leave out my beloved pets?

Melissa S said...

Your dog is adorable, our dog has been having a lot of skin problems also, the pet shampoo sounds intriguing. I have been using natural laundry soap for a few weeks now that is scented with natural oils, but I think I would like to try an unscented one.

Tammy Allgood-Hemmerling said...

I really need to try these products because I suffer from chronic migraines and insomnia! Maybe this would help!


Gala said...

When I was young my grandma had a farm and she would wash her hair in goats milk straight from the goat. She swore by it.

Orange Lip Love sounds like something I need and would love. I could almost smell the fragrances of these products already. I love new and natural products like these. (Charlie is adorable)
