Anti-flea products can be SO harmful for your home and family … Think of how your kids love to rub and cuddle your pets!! So, I’m sharing my weekly flea solutions for my two lovely pets at home. These DIYs are so easy, and SO healthy, because I’m using natural ingredients and essential oils to do all the heavy lifting!!

Ingredients for Flea Shampoo

Directions for Flea Shampoo

  1. Combine all ingredients and transfer to a pump plastic bottle.
  2. Recommended use: wash dog with this once a week during flea season.

Ingredients for Flea Spray

Directions for Flea Spray

  1. Combine all ingredients in an 8 oz. spray bottle and store in a cool dark place.
  2.  TO USE: Safe for dogs 12 weeks and older. Shake well before each use. Lightly spray dogs entire coat until damp, but not dripping. Brush through. Repeat if necessary. Do not spray on the face.

Directions for Flea Collar

  1. Make your own flea collar by taking an average collar and adding 10 drops of essential oil mixed with 2 tablespoons of veggie oil. Some great flea-repelling essential oil options include cinnamon, rosemary, wormwood, clove, peppermint, and cedar wood.
  2. Allow the collar to dry and then place it on your pet.
  3. It’s time to re-dose your pet’s collar when you no longer note the scent, generally every two weeks or so.

  1. I read somewhere that lavender and cedar wood are toxic to our pets but I really don’t want to use flea meds or flea collars!!
