DIY Flea & Tick Spray (for your Dog)
Everyone wants to protect their pup from nasty pests that can bite, sting, and cause disease. Luckily, there are natural options for fighting ticks, fleas, and even mosquitoes to keep your dog safe while exploring the great outdoors. It’s super easy to create your own non-toxic bug spray that is safe for Fido.
About the Ingredients:
The acidic taste and smell of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is very unappealing to insects, while Neem Oil is a powerful natural bug repellent deterring mosquitoes, mites and parasites. Cedarwood Essential Oil not only repels ticks and fleas but kills them as well with its anti-parasitic molecules. Rose Geranium Essential Oil has shown in studies to be just as effective as store bought chemical repellent to keep ticks away. Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil is a great natural mosquito repellent.
How to Make:
Into your bottle, add the Essential Oils, Neem Oil, and Apple Cider Vinegar. Swirl to mix and add in the alcohol, then swirl again. Lastly, pour in your water and close the top tightly. To use, shake gently then mist the dog (avoiding face) before going outside. Re-apply every hour or so.
