Do you have cats or dogs? If you answered yes, then you know all to well the nuisance of fleas and ticks that can carry and transfer bacteria and disease such as Lyme disease.
At Blossom, we love pets, so we want to make sure they stay protected, ticks and fleas free.
But what’s the best way to protect our precious pet from nasty pests like fleas and ticks without putting toxic chemicals all over ?
We hate chemicals. So we are making our own safe, non toxic flea/tics repellents and collars. Most of retail products, high-priced and full of chemical are no more effective than a simple homemade solution.
Homemade Flea & Tick Repellant spray:
So you will need to fill a spray bottle with:– 1 cup of water
– 4 drops of essential oils
(we used lavender essential oil)
– Shake well and spritz your dog’s fur
– 1/4 cup of apple cider Vinegar Spray your pet periodically. .
Homemade Flea & Tick Repellant Collar:
You can also make a flea/tick collar by rubbing a few drops of essential oils to your pet’s collar or with a decorative bandana. We used lavender oil on a bandana.
You can also use eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, citronella or geranium. Lavender Essential Oil and Tea Tree Oil Spray are for dogs only. Cats are more sensitive to essential oils since they metabolize the oils differently.
Don’t they look Happy? 🙂
