Spring brings a volley of things....longer days filled with sunshine, gardens bursting with colorful flowers, and unfortunately, parasites like fleas, ticks and mosquitos!
When working in the yard, you are suppose to wear insect repellants to protect you from parasites. Without knowing it you can carry a flea or tick in your home on your clothing and expose your indoor pets to these pesky parasites!
Here is a natural non-toxic remedy that I have found that works well, smells good and no side effects! You can use this formula on you and your pets for outdoor activities, the only draw back is that the formula is water based, so depending on your activity level and body chemistry it may have to be applied often.
In a spray bottle add:
8oz of water
8 drops of lavender oil
8 drops of tea tree oil
shake well before each application, and use as often as you like! It repels fleas, ticks, bees and mosquitos!
Have a great summer!
