Natural Flea and Tick Collars for Our Pets

petsWe love our furry friends and this is the time of year that they are inundated with pesky fleas and ticks. Not only are ticks and fleas a nuisance for our dogs and cats, ticks also carry lyme disease. How can we get rid of these insects without subjecting our pets to harsh chemical drops and wearing chemically laden collars? There is a natural remedy and my cousin found one on the internet..

Natural Dog Flea and Tick Spray

Mix together:
8oz purified water
3 TBSP apple cider Vinegar
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops cedar wood essential oil
10 drops citronella essential oil
10 drops peppermint essential oil
After you mix solution, soak your pet’s collar in the solution. While the collar is soaking, wash and dry your pet or take them to the groomer. Let the collar air dry then place the collar on their neck. Spray the remaining solution on your pet. Do this once a month for best results.
