If you have reached this page, it means you have a tick problem or want to protect your dogs from the pesky parasites.
Nothing can be further than the truth, that it is difficult to get rid of them because of how they multiply and able to survive in extreme situations.
Did you know that ticks can lived up to 3 months to 3 years! That is why prevention is the best way to go to keep them away.
Here is a great natural prevention shared by a group of doggies & kitties activist at Planet Paws:
Here’s the recipe:
- 10 drops of cedar oil
- 10 drops of clove oil
- 10 drops of geranium oil
It is just that easy. We did it ourselves and we really find it very effective. There was a time when our pet hotel had some ticks and for months they linger. Once we had this cocktail of essential oils and try it, they are GONE!
Where do you buy the oils? Here’s how:
With the above recipe, you can easily make it more by using the same ratio, which is 1 part cedar oil, 1 part clove oil and 1 part geranium oil.
Example – 10ml cedar oil, 10ml clove oil, 10ml geranium oil
How to apply ?
Once you have mixed all the ingredients together, you can apply 2-3 drops on your dog’s clothing or collar.
You can also use an essential oil electric burner. We usually add a few drops into the water in the essential oil burner.
Hope this homemade remedy works for you!
