Natural Tick And Flea Repellent

 Many pet owners are struggling with tick flea infestations in their home and yard for that matter.  The best way to avoid this is to use a natural tick and flea repellent for dogs like the ones that are available online or from local pet stores. We don’t just want the best for our dogs but also the safest. A lot of owners don’t know what to get in tick and flea repellents. And some are worried about the chemicals used in over-the-counter tick and flea repellents. Some owners resort to natural tick and flea repellent for dogs. But just because something is labeled as “natural” doesn’t mean it’s good for you or your pet. This article will discuss the homemade flea spray that you can make right at home.

Natural Tick And Flea Repellent

Natural Tick And Flea Repellent

Ticks and fleas can be a big problem for dogs and cats, especially during the spring and summer months. One of the best ways to protect your pets is a natural flea repellent.

The following recipe makes about 12 ounces of homemade tick-and-flea spray that you can use on your dog or cat as needed:

  • 1/4 cup cedar chips
  • 3 tbsp dried lavender flowers (lavandula angustifolia)
  • 1/4 cup citronella essential oil (cymbopogon nardus)

Essential Oils For Flea Repellent

Lavender oil is another essential oil that has been shown to have repellent properties. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, lavender oil was found to have a “significant repellent activity” when tested in the lab. Cedarwood and thyme are also known to repel fleas, so it’s worth experimenting with all of these oils if you want to make your own natural flea repellent spray.

Essential oil flea sprays are safe for pets, but be sure to test them first in order to make sure they don’t cause any allergic reactions or irritations. If you’re looking for a quick fix rather than making your own natural flea repellent spray (or just want something more convenient), there are plenty of commercial options available at most pet stores that use essential oils like lavender and eucalyptus as their active ingredients.

Making Your Own Natural Flea Repellent Spray

  • Combine a few drops of essential oils with a carrier oil. Some common carriers are coconut, olive, or jojoba oil. If you’re looking for a natural flea repellent spray that will also repel mosquitoes and ticks, try mixing equal parts lavender, citronella and cedarwood essential oils with the carrier oil.
  • Apply the mixture to your dog’s collar so that it can be absorbed through his skin when he wears it throughout the day. Be careful to not get any of the mixture into your dog’s eyes or nose as this may cause irritation. If you have sensitive skin yourself, test out how long you can handle keeping the mixtures on your arm before washing thoroughly with soap and water if necessary (you can also apply some beeswax to help seal in moisture if needed).
  • Avoid using peppermint essential oil in favor of spearmint; peppermint is too strong for sensitive dogs’ noses while spearmint smells similar enough without causing harm!

DIY Natural Flea Spray (For Your Home)


  • Distilled water (1 cup)
  • Hydrogen peroxide (10% solution, 1/2 cup)
  • Spray bottle with cap

DIY Natural Flea Collar

To make your own natural flea collar, you’ll need:

  • A wide-width fabric ribbon (about 1/2 inch)
  • Essential oils (you can use eucalyptus or cedarwood)

The number of drops of essential oil will vary depending on the size of your collar and how strong you want the scent to be. Use caution when mixing oils; only add a few drops at first, then test how strong it smells. Once you’ve found a good balance between scent and effectiveness, fill up the entire inside of your collar with oil.
