    Mud Season in Maine- Time for our Seaweed Rich Dog Shampoo

    Mud Season in Maine- Time for our Seaweed Rich Dog Shampoo

    Early spring is so lovely in Maine.  At night you can hear the peepers.  During the day, long muddy walks with your favorite pooch.

    Our dog shampoo is designed to be pet and owner friendly.

    Honestly, both our rescue dogs don't care for baths.  Tuffy, I can understand, she's not sure about water. But Saff?  That dog loves water.   She's famous for her "duck dive". That's when Saff sticks her entire head under the water.  Since Saff does the "duck dive" at the beach in sea water she should love our shampoo which is rich in Maine seaweed.  Our nourishing seaweed dog shampoo is great for itchy, irritated, dry patches.  

    Our dog shampoo is designed to be pet and owner friendly.

    We designed our dog shampoo bar so that you can easily wash your dog with one hand and with just one bar!!!  Use the Dog Shampoo Bar just as you would a bar of soap.  Run the bar once down your dog's back and then rub.  Dulse & Rugosa’s Dog Shampoo Bar makes lots of moisturizing lather that is packed full of nourishing oils to leave your dog's fur feeling and looking great.  We have also incorporated Neem Oil into our bar for its amazing insect fighting properties which will leave your pooch looking and smelling great!


     Our Dog Shampoo is lightly scented with pet friendly essential oils. 


    Rose hip and Oarweed Tea, Saponified Oils of Coconut, Rosehip infused Olive, Calendula infused Sweet Almond, Rosehip infused Castor, Neem, and Rosehip Oil, Essential Oils of Cypress, Cedarwood, Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavender,and Tea Tree.

    Exfoliate for Balance and Beauty

    Whenever I feel stressed, tired or overwhelmed I like to give myself the treat of a deep detoxing exfoliation.  Besides getting rid of dead skin, feeling super clean and refreshed taking the time to exfoliate helps restore my balance.

    Dulse and Rugosa scrubs contain nourishing Maine seaweed.

    I started using scrubs as a way to feel better after stressful events.  If I have a tough appointment or meeting I look forward to giving myself a gentle replenishing facial at the end of the day.  We originally designed our Island Face Scrub to help with breakouts.  But I discovered the gentle mix of Maine roses and seaweeds helps restore my balance. It might be because seaweeds contain trace minerals and vitamins that need to be replenished after a stressful event.  I think it also helps to take a few minutes devoted to myself.  We have a trial size Island Face Scrub for only $5.00 which used once a week will last for about a month- a little seaweed goes a long way!

    Dulse and Rugosa gentle seaweed rich face scrub.

    Traveling is another great time to add scrubs into your routine.  There is so much going on when you travel especially by plane.  When I'm off my regular routine I struggle with staying balanced.  I find it's easy for me to get dehydrated especially as it is hard to travel with my favorite Lavender tea.  Healthy eating can also be tricky.  By the time I get to my destination I feel downright yucky and a full body scrub is just what I need.  Our blend of hand harvested Maine seaweeds and lovely flower petals leave me feeling happy.

    Dulse and Rugosa's Gardner's Scrub has bits of our cleansing seaweed rich soap.


    Our scrubs are hand mixed with simple, effective ingredients.  Seaweed to help draw out toxins and keep your skin hydrated.  Salt or sugar to slough away dead skin and smooth rough patches and hand picked flower petals for beauty and scent.

    Dulse and Rugosa scrubs are hand mixed with Maine island grown flowers and seaweeds.


    If you haven't exfoliated in awhile, now is the time.  Celebrate the end of winter and the arrival of spring by detoxing and replenishing with one of our nourishing scrubs.

    The Sweet Life in Maine

    The Sweet Life in Maine

    It's sugar season In Maine.  I love driving and spotting buckets hanging from trees.  An added bonus is it's a sure sign of spring.

    Collecting sap in Maine

    Maple syrup is quite versatile.  I love it baked with winter squash and curry powder.  But by far my favorite way to eat maple syrup is with pancakes.  Pancakes are our favorite breakfast out on Gotts Island.  Saff, the wonder dog always get the first one- the gridle is usually not hot enough.  The last couple of batches are saved for snacking.  Cold pancakes taste great with peanut butter or jam. 

    There are so many great pancake recipes.  I like to use a mix of grains, buckwheat, cornmeal, whole wheat, oats.  If you use 2 cups of flour, try 1 cup white flour and 1 cup a mix of grains.  I love cornmeal and island blueberries.  Grated apples and buckwheat.  Another great trick is to separate your eggs and beat the whites gently.  You are not looking for a stiff meringue.  Fold the whites in right before adding any fruit.  This makes a super fluffy pancakes.  Yum- can't wait for coffee and pancakes.

    What's your favorite way to use maple syrup?
