How to make an Herbal Flea Spray for your dog or cat

1 cup water
4-6 drops tea tree oil
4-6 drops essential oil of lavender
Simply mix all of the ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle. Spray a little on your dog or cat when you let them outdoors and again when they come back into the house. Be sure to keep the spray away from their eyes. You can also spray their bedding to keep fleas away.
Tip: Rosemary is another herb frequently used to deter fleas. You can substitute the lavender with essential oil of rosemary to increase the flea-deterrent element of this flea spray.
Warnings: Always make sure to dilute the tea tree oil before using on your pets. Use less for cats or smaller dogs. If you have any concerns, consult your vet before using.
