Natural Flea Remedies

By Lowchen's of Australia

In one day, a single flea can bite your dog more than 200 times. During that same day, the flea can consume more than its body weight of your pet's blood. And before it's through, a female flea can lay hundreds of eggs on your pet, ensuring that its work will be carried on by generations to come.

Citrus Repellent

Cut a lemon into quarters and place in a pint jug. Cover the lemon with boiling water and let it steep overnight. Next day you have a flea repellent that you can use in a spray bottle. Spray all over your dog remembering especially behind the ears and around the head generally (careful of eyes), around the base of the tail (once again keep away from delicate bits) and under your dog's 'armpits'.

Aromatherapy repellent: Using 10 ml. of sweet almond oil as your base, add 10 drops of lavender and 5 drops of cedarwood. Shake well and use 1 or 2 drops spread over the skin at least twice a week to keep the fleas away.

A flea collar can be made by rubbing a few drops of one of the following into an ordinary webbing or rope collar or even a doggy bandanna: eucalyptus oil, Tea Tree Oil, citronella, lavender or geranium. Don't forget to do this weekly.

Homemade Tropical Treatment

For the dogs (use it when you go out once a day or if in the woods, more often).

Use a glycerine base and to it add, lemongrass oil, grapeseed oil, eucalyptus oil, citronella oil, and a capsule or two of Vitamin E for preservation. All the ingredients can be obtained at the Health Food Store locally. Works on fleas, ticks, chiggers and black flies.
