Natural Flea and Tick Control For Dogs And Cats

FLEA AND TICK SEASON …
c
hemicals injected into your pets blood stream compromise with their vital organs, including the liver, kidney and thyroid. Recent research suggests that the toxic effects lead to a 25% reduction in life expectancy in those animals treated, and inevitably to a painful and premature death. Pets treated with such toxins also experience nausea, nervous disorders, sleeplessness, flaky skin, scabs and other uncomfortable effects created by a compromised immune system. Holistic veterinarians and other pet professionals suggest using an all natural flea prevention product. For those holistic followers the following recipes can be wonderful remedies. Since they are all natural, they will only help repel fleas, ticks and flies etc. and must be applied more frequently as well.

Dried peppermint, eucalyptus, bay leaf herbs, marjoram, eucalyptus, rosemary, sage, clove buds.

Crush your botanicals well and fill a muslin bag or use it in the cedar chip mixture of your dogs bed. The muslin bags can be placed near your dogs bedding area.

Tick Spritzer Blend

  • 2 drops of Lavender, Basil, Lemon, Opoponax, Eucalyptus
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vodka
  • 1 cup of dried marjoram, eucalyptus, rosemary
  • 2 cups of water

Flea Spritzer Blend

  • 2 drops of cedarwood, lemongrass, rose geranium
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vodka
  • 1 cup of dried peppermint, eucalyptus, bay leaf herbs
  • 1- 2 cups of water
  • Add the essential oils and vodka in a bottle, tighten the lid and shake well. Once the mixture blended (should turn white), add apple cider vinegar. If you have some herbs mentioned above you can make an herbal tea to use in your spritzer.
    Boil 2-4 cups of water and remove from heat. Add your dried herbs in the water and let is simmer for 30 minutes. Once cool, drain and use instead of plain water in your spritzer. If you are using an herbal tea, this mixture must be kept in the refrigerator as the herbal teas have the tendency to go bad faster.Once you have your spritzer you can use this by gently spraying it in to your dogs coat, legs, tummy and back. Rub it in well and apply it as necessary. Do not use any of the essential oils on your dogs face or around nose, ears and eyes. Respect the sensitive nose he/she has and go easy when using aromatic substances such as essential oils.

Good luck and stay flea & tick free!
