They aren’t joking when the first thing that pops up on their site is “Welcome to your new favorite soap!” After just one use you will fall in love. I did… I now use Carolina Castile Soap for everything. Hand washing, showering, hair washing and house cleaning. It not only smells wonderful it works great, no matter what you use it for you will wonder where it’s been your whole life. The lemon is my favorite. But they are all just as good, I just love the lemon smell.


Before I begin, do you wonder what Castile soap is?

What Is Castile Soap?

Learn about the versatility of this soap made from organic oils

The history of Castile Soap originates from the Castile Region of Spain. Castile Soap started off to mean strictly a soap made from Olive Oil. Castile Soap has evolved to refer to any soap made from the saponification of vegetable oils. You will notice that although all of our Castile Soaps contain olive oil, they also all contain coconut and any combination of other vegetable oils. Coconut oil gives soap a nice bubbly lather and is great for cleaning. We add in other oils for conditioning purpose and to give our soap body. We especially love to use cocoa butter in our soap. All of our soaps contain either mostly or all organic oils.

    I clean homes for a living and only use natural cleaners, nothing already mixed up. My clients all love that when i’m done their house smells clean, not like chemicals.
    I mix 1 cup of Carolina Castile Soap with 32oz water in a spray bottle for all cleaning situations, counters, stove, sinks, toilets, showers, dusted surfaces and more. When done everything is sparkling clean and smells great, this is where the lemon becomes my favorite. I love lemon scent and so do my clients. It leaves their home smells crisp and clean like a slice of summer. I steam clean floors with just water, otherwise I would use this same mixture on floors. I have at my own home and love the results.

As you will see below Molly is sound asleep after her Bedtime Bones and Tales for the Tail End of a Wintery Day book. I read her a few pages before she fell asleep. We have three dogs, Molly, Jacky and Maddie. All three usually sleep pretty good, minus if they hear of smell something outside. I always get them ready for bed by putting Jacky in her pj’s and the other two snuggled under the covers in their bed at the foot of my bed. Jacky doesn’t like to be covered that’s why she wears pj’s. Now all 3 get a Bedtime Bone before bed and a few spritz of Eau de Bedtime Canine Calming Spray on their bed.

They have been sleeping like babies and the spray smells amazing!


Eau de Bedtime is amazing… I even think it helps me sleep better. I love the calming scent and I think my doggies do too. Maddie always snuggles down into the blankets after I spritz it on them. It’s super cute… Just a few pumps is all it takes to help your pups sleep better at night.

I love that it’s a blend of all natural essential oils ~ Chamomile, Lavender, Citrus & Patchouli together this smell is amazing, I think i’ve said that 2-3 times now but it really is a great scent for bedtime. It’s also Eco Friendly and Made in the USA. I only buy pet products Made in the USA. You can purchase this spray as a one time thing for on a monthly subscription ~ that saves you a few dollars. This and all the Bedtime4Dogs items would make great dog stocking stuffers for your pups or loved ones pups.


Tales for the Tail End of a Wintery Day Bedtime Stories 4 Humans and Their Dogs Winter Edition is such a cute book. It’s a book of short stories for Winter about things you would share with your dogs. They might not understand what your saying but they will enjoy the attention and time you spend reading to them. Mine are so cute they lay there watching me read out loud turning their heads so slowly with each word like they are taking it all in and understanding every word I say. It’s adorable.
The book is even dedicated to an adorable dog named Koszi =) I very much enjoyed Tales for the Tail End of a Wintery Day for myself and my dogs. I’ve read it all but I continue to read it again just a page or two each night to them after they are snuggled in bed. It helps me sleep too. After the relaxing reading, wonderful Eau de Bedtime smell and the sweetness of my dogs laying at the foot of our bed I am nice and relaxed and ready for a good night’s sleep.

The book can also be purchased alone or as a subscribe and save offer.

Great pup stocking stuffer idea.


Bedtime bones® are an organic, chamomile bedtime treat for your dog (Yes, chamomile affects your dog the same way it affects you). The package is made from recycled materials made with wind power. Small dog bones are packaged one for every day of the month, plus a little extra to share.

I do have one request for Bedtime Bones…. they make a soft option for dogs with sensitive teeth. My poor little Maddie was a rescue dog and has hardly any teeth and the ones she does have can’t really handle harder bones. I had to break up her Bedtime Bone and give it to her in pieces. If there was a soft-chewy version I think that would be great. Otherwise EXCELLENT product that works great, the girls have never slept better. On weekends we now notice they sleep in later then us, it’s so cute.

Bedtime Bones come packaged in a cute box, a month’s supply for one pup plus a few extra to share =) so sweet and sharing we did with a client of mine that has a new pup that was having sleeping issues. You can a bulk box too if you have lots of pups like me and both of course can be purchased as a one time thing or as a discounted subscription. Again great stocking stuffers for your pets or loved ones pets.

Big plus look at this ingredients list: all organic-rye flour, oat bran, brown eggs, canola, chamomile, honey  maybe they should make a human version too =) lol these ingredients sound yummy and I know to my dogs they are, they eat them right up. I love when products for my dogs are made with such great organic ingredients.

IVS ~ International Veterinary Sciences sells these easy to use Pet Wipes, perfect for baths on the go, accidents, butt wipes and paw cleaning. My boyfriend is a dog groomer and he keeps a thing of the Tushee Wipes at his station, just in case he has a dog that has an accident as the client is there to pick their pet up. He said they are fast and easy, work great and remove odors. You can also use them on paws, ears and eyes. Perfect for dogs that get eye goo.


Tushee Wipes are Thick perforated & heavy duty wipes that can be used daily. Perfect for dogs, cats and other small animals. They leave your pets fresh and clean.

Tushee wipes are thick and perforated so do an incredible job in cleaning those difficult places down under without having to take a bath!! Can also be used to clean paws, eyes, and ears. They work incredibly well on other small animals such as Rabbits and Ferrets..completely safe and effective!

Tushee wipes are formulated with effective cleaners that remove bacteria and odors from your pets skin. Quick Bath wipes contain Vitamins A & E and Aloe Vera which promotes an overall healthy skin and coat while leaving your pet clean and shiny. Quick Bath wipes are pH neutral and alcohol-free.


Quick Bath Wipes are perfect for a “quick bath” these are perfect for on the go, we take our dogs hiking with us a lot and sometimes they get into messy situations, dirt, mud, flower dander, even cobwebs and I don’t want those things in my car. The quick bath wipes are perfect for a quick wipe down before entering the car. Perfect for dirty paws too.

10 wipes per bag… you can choose a bag for small, medium or large dogs. The smalls is perfect for our little girls.

Quick Bath Cat Wipes, perfect for dirty cats. We have two cats, one big orange kitty that loves to play in the rain, snow, dirt anything the dogs get into he is right behind them. He gets regular tub baths because of this, but sometimes it’s just easier to use a Quick Bath Cat Wipe on him. Our other cat Katy is an older short haired black cat, we no longer give her a tub bath, we can tell it’s too much for her being as old as she is. So the Quick Bath Cat Wipes come in handy. About once a month I wipe her down and trim her nails. She smells great afterwards, has shiny fur and feels so soft. She doesn’t even mind me wiping her down in fact I think she actually enjoys it.
