Homemade Flea Spray
I’m excited to provide you a chemical free option for a Homemade Flea Spray recipe for dogs! As the warmer weather creeps up, we tend to worry about our furry four legged family members! What worries me even more is the chemicals found in most of the store bought products for fleas and ticks! Meet my little guy! His name is Poohbear! He’s 3 years old! My little sweetie pie is only 5 pounds so I can just imagine that some of those chemicals could be deadly to him.
Essential oils can be expensive, especially when purchased at your local Whole Foods stores. I have found some of my best deals on Amazon.
Flea Repellent Mist Spray: Spray this on your pet after a bath after they are completely dry.
Collar Soak: You can also soak their collar in this solution. Do this about once a month.
Directions: Mix all ingredients and then add it to a spray bottle. Avoid spraying the dogs eyes! My little guy doesn’t like to be sprayed at all so I spray it on my hand and pet him with it! Works great!
(You could use just one of these oils and it would work but they are more effective when you combine them. I wanted to mention this just in case you have part of the ingredients but not all)
TIP: Make sure you are using 100% Pure Essential Oils and NOT the fragrance oils. The 100% pure oils will give you more bang for your buck because they are stronger, more effective and proven medicinal properties!.
Already have fleas? Mix equal parts of baking soda and salt. Sprinkle this mixture onto your carpet and let it set for a least a day, preferable two days. Vacuum it up! Voila! Be sure the carpet is NOT wet because the baking soda will leave a white residue stain.
Yard tips: Create a barrier around your house by laying Cedar Wood chips!
