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.

This young five year old boy‘s case is relayed by his mother and we won’t use his name because of his age.

Apparently he is very clever young man, reading, doing grade two, maths and many other things well beyond his age group. A problem has become apparent since starting Prep: that he is different and he doesn’t want to be. He displays this by’ hanging out’ only with the kids that want to play and do nothing else. He has become very serious and not interested in anything.

Arrangements had been made for him to be tested as a ‘gifted child’ and he refused to do the work, playing dumb. Mum has been quite distressed with the situation as well.

I thought to try Milkweed and Pink Shamrock to see what it would trigger in him. On the next visit there had been a remarkable change in the young man as related by his mum of him ‘rolling around the floor laughing hysterically at apparently nothing’. A visit to the Circus with his father had much the same thing happening, to the extent that the patrons were hysterically laughing at his hysterical laughter.

For the next lot of essences I decided to go with Pink Shamrock again and added Macaranga and Milkweed. There has been given a bottle of Crisis Calm for sharing by the family.

Mum is considering trying to make arrangements for another assessment of his abilities.

His mother and father are also taking essences so they can all work through this together. It is a very rewarding process when the whole family decides to give it a go.
