Essential oils that naturally repel flees and ticks

The more I am researching toxic chemicals, the more reluctant I am to use them, even for flees and ticks. It seems that every time I give my dog Hailey her monthly maintenance for flees and ticks, she is very docile for a couple of days, if my dog is reacting this way, what are sprays doing to humans. So, I have done some investigating. I will be trying this with our pooch this season, and will keep you all informed as to how well it works. Here is the article that I found, and I hope you find it beneficial for you. If you try it, please comment on your results!

Fleas and ticks are irritating but can also be unhealthy for your pet. Unfortunately, so are many pesticides used to repel them. Chemicals in over-the-counter flea and tick repellents can cause skin irritation, hair loss, kidney damage, or even death. Essential oils squeezed from plants are natural and safe for keeping pests at bay. Always ask your veterinarian before using essential oils on your dog. Oils should never be used on cats.

Lemongrass
  • The Essential Oils Desk Reference lists lemongrass as one essential oil that helps repel fleas and ticks. Its anti-parasitic properties keep parasites away from your dog. Lemongrass is also used to treat bacteria and fungal infections. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, aids in digestion, improves circulation, and promotes strong ligaments. To repel fleas and ticks with lemongrass, add a few drops of the oil to your dog's collar. The scent should last several days, but you will need to reapply the oil when it fades.


       Tea Tree
  •  Tea tree is another essential oil that repels parasites including fleas and ticks. Tea tree oil can also help eliminate worms and fungal infections such as ringworm. Tea tree oil is an antiseptic and can help combat viral infections. It can also help prevent tooth and gum disease. Mix a few drops of tea tree with water and spray your dog daily to keep away ticks and fleas. 


    Cinnamon
    • Cinnamon essential oil was used for medicinal purposes as early as A.D. 78, according to the Essential Oils Desk Reference. It is especially useful in repelling parasites such as ticks, but it can also help viral and fungal infections, stimulate circulation, and treat cardiovascular disease. If you find ticks on your dog, apply cinnamon essential oil to the end of a cotton swab and touch the swab to each tick for a few seconds. The tick will back out of your dog, allowing you to remove it. Don't try to pull a tick off of your dog before it has removed its head. The head can break away from the tick and cause infection.
