Pawsitively Flea-Free: A Natural Solution for Your Dog's Comfort

By Sarah’s Village

To create a natural flea repellent for dogs, you can make a simple solution using essential oils. Here's a recipe:


- 1 cup of water

- 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

- 5 drops of lavender essential oil

- 5 drops of cedarwood essential oil

- 5 drops of citronella essential oil


1. Mix the water and apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle.

2. Add the drops of lavender, cedarwood, and citronella essential oils to the mixture.

3. Shake the bottle well to ensure the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

4. Spray the solution onto your dog's fur, avoiding the eyes, nose, and mouth.

5. Gently massage the solution into your dog's coat, focusing on areas where fleas are likely to hide, such as behind the ears and around the neck.

6. Repeat this process as needed, especially before your dog goes outside or to areas where fleas are prevalent.

This natural flea repellent can help keep fleas at bay and leave your dog smelling fresh. However, it's essential to monitor your dog for any adverse reactions, and if irritation occurs, discontinue use immediately. Additionally, consult with your veterinarian before using essential oils on your pets, especially if your dog has any underlying health conditions or is pregnant.
