your own flea collars for dogs & cats
Select a nylon
heavy-duty collar for your dog in the correct size. Nylon
and other fabric types will absorb the mixture. You can use
this as your dog's every day collar as well.
Chose one of the
following essential oils which repel fleas: rosemary, rose
geranium or citronella. Be sure to use only 100% pure essential
Use one drop of
the essential oil of your choice on the collar each week.
You can use up to two drops, but as some dogs are more sensitive
to oils than others, start using one drop only until you gauge
your pet's reaction.
If you are using
for ticks as well, rose geranium is the best choice.
Cat flea collars:
If you are making a flea collar for a cat, do not use
citronella, only use rose geranium or rosemary.
