However, our dog soap has been tested on humans.” They lived.


We love a company with a sense of humor. (And, yes, they make soap for dogs.) Essential Journeys also makes soy candles, bath salts and more. Visit The products are also sold in some retail stores, and you can check for one near you on the website.
