The flea and tick season is upon us now. Did you know that there is a natural way to help control these tiny pests?
I know there are many toxic products on the market either through your vet or in pet stores. Yes, they do work. Its a toxic chemical your applying to your pets skin. As we know, the skin is the largest organ on the body. Its absorbed quicky into their system. They recommend that you wash your hands immediatly after applying to your pet. That alone tells you something.
Ways to avoid a flea infestation is to avoid walking in deep over grown areas in parks or use a natural replellant, through diet and of course a commercial product. I personally do not use any commercial toxic products on any of my pets.
One product that I create using Essential oils of Tea Tree , Rosemary, Sage, Cedarwood, Peppermint, Sweet Orange, Eucalyptus, Citronella, Pine Needle has been very effective. I spray myself and my fur babies before heading outside to the park. It smells wonderful and my pets are quite used to our routine of applying this spray before we head to the park.
