Make Your Own Natural Flea Repellent - 2008 update




Natural Flea Repellent Formula



3 ounces distilled water
 1 ounce witch hazel
 6 drops la
vender essential oil
 3 drops tea tree essential oil
 3 drops citronella essential oil

 Place essential oils together in a glass spray bottle. Shake well. To
 really blend the aromas, allow the oils to sit together in the
 bottle for a week.

 Add the distilled water and witch hazel. Shake to ensure the oils are
 fully incorporated.

  Do not spray around your PON's face and avoid the eye area completely. Apply every two hours when outside your home.




Flea spray mixture

  • 2 drops of cedarwood, lemongrass, rose geranium
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vodka
  • 1 cup of dried peppermint, eucalyptus, bay leaf herbs
  • 1- 2 cups of water
Pour the essential oils and vodka in a closed container,and shake well. After the mixture is blended, add apple cider vinegar.

Boil 2-4 cups of water and set aside. Add your dried herbs in the water and let it simmer for 30 minutes. Once the mixture is cool, drain and apply. This mixture must be kept refrigerated because it
goes rancid quite quickly.

Comments from owners:


"Very easy to get rid of fleas with diatomaceous earth. You can get it in the garden centers or order it online. To treat your carpets just sprinkle it over them and leave it for 7 days and then vacuum up."  Wisconsin owner
" I have a 7 year old and she has suffered with hot spots and has lost quite a bit of her fur. The fleas at my house were taking over. Since trying the Apple Cider Vinegar, our lives have become better. No more fleas ! Her fur has started to grow back. It has been fabulous!!!"   California owner



Please note:

Insect repellents using plant oils such as citronella, soybean, coconut, and
geranium "provided little if any protection," according to  Consumer Reports
(2005). Apple cider vinegar was not mentioned in the Consumer Report. However European sources have confirmed the effective used of apple cider vinegar for flea control. To be sure of complete protection, please spray often (every few hours) and  add a small amount of apple cider vinegar to your PON'S drinking water on a regular basis.
