Flea Spray

  • 20mls Neem Oil to
  • One litre water
  • 7 drops Lavender Oil
  • 7 drops Mint [or mint leaves]
  • 7 drops Lemon Oil.
  • 7 drops Blue Mink and Macaranga

Combine all ingredients. Shake well before use.

Either use a spray bottle or wipe on fur with a cloth soaked in solution

Insect Repellant

  • 2 handful  Wormwood
  • 1 handful Rue
  • ½ handful Rosemary

Powder dry herbs and place in jar. Fill with Safflower Oil [Olive] plus 1tsp Apple Cider Vinegar.

Place in sunlight, shake twice daily. Do not remove Herbs. This takes about a month to mature [less for Australia and in summer]

Into 3.5 ounces (100ml) of this mix, add ½  teaspoon Eucalyptus + 1tsp Oil and seven drops Crisis Calm and Macaranga.

Shake bottle well. Moisten a piece of cloth, pour oil onto this. Wipe on fur, may be repeated every five hours if needed.

Borax

This is another inexpensive and useful treatment for home and sleeping places and most supermarkets sell it.

For inside use, put into a shaker bottle and sprinkle all over carpets, leave for as long as possible an hour or two would be great, then vacuum and burn the bag.

Outside, you need to damp down the area first; this brings fleas to the surface. then sprinkle on powder, after a couple of hours damp down again with seven drops of Lomandra added to water to  clear toxicity, and stop powder residue from blowing away.

Cedar Wood

Fleas and insects hate cedar wood, you can mix seven drops in atomizer bottle with 100 ml water and seven drops Lomandra.

Spray your animal’s bedding and let dry.  Or make up larger quantities to spray around their kennel or sleeping places.

This mix can be sprayed around the skirting boards and edge of carpets for inside.

Inside in my cupboards, pantry, under furniture etc, I keep the little wooden balls and put on new oil when they have no more smell.

Diatomaceous Earth

This is a fine powder used in swimming pool filters. The ground-up coral acts to eat the wax coating off the fleas and they can’t jump, when they can’t jump they can’t breed.

It is great to sprinkle on carpets and floors leave for a couple of hours, then vacuum and burn vacuum bag if possible.

Use outdoors the same way as Borax (above), but with Lomandra, but wear a mask when initially sprinkling as it is so fine it could irritate airways.
