Natural Flea Recipe

Ingredients Required: Eucalyptus Oil & Wintergreen Oil

This is the natural way of eliminating these unwanted fleas from your home and sleeping place of your pet. It has a natural aroma that is not harmful to humans, pets, or children.

Use ľ tsp. of Eucalyptus Oil in a 8-10 ounce spray pump bottle. Fill with water. Put the pump on a fine mist. Spray your house with the mist. Spray the carpet, furniture, car, petís beds everywhere. Fleas hate the aroma and run for the door. 

Do this 3 times a week. It leaves a fine mist that dries almost instantly. Your home will have a very fresh scent. Spraying your pet is also a great idea. It doesnít hurt them and it helps keep fleas away. Do this recipe all year, but especially do this routine in the summer months when fleas are at there peak. Vacuuming is also important for picking up eggs.

Eucalyptus Leaves are also great for placing around the base boards of your house. You can put them under the bed, behind your hutch, behind doors, under the couch. They have a mild scent that stays fresh for 6 months or longer. This along with the Eucalyptus Oil gives added protection. You can buy the leaves from a crafts store that has the flower arrangements for Flower Design, or if you're near a Eucalyptus Tree just snip off some cuttings from the branches.

Use ľ tsp of Wintergreen Oil in a 8-10 ounce spray pump bottle. Fill with water. Put the pump on a fine mist. Spray your house with the fine mist. Spray the carpet, furniture, etc. Basically do the same as above, but on this oil you do this recipe  ONCE every 3 months. The easiest time to remember is the first of the month. This oil kills the eggs. Before they become hatched and become adults and lay more eggs.
