A RECIPE TO HELP WITH TICKS – FLEAS – MOSQUITOS
Thanks, Nancy Swope – Follow her on Facebook
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups distilled white vinegar (ticks hate the smell and taste)
- 2 tbs. vegetable or almond oil (both contain sulfur- a natural tick repellent)
Mix these ingredients together. Add to a 4oz., glass spray bottle to dispense. (Can buy through Amazon)
Leave enough room to add 24 drops of essential oil. Add 24 drops of Young Living Purification, Peppermint OR any Citrus Essential Oil to the 4oz glass spray bottle with the vinegar solution. These essential oils all repel ticks. My choice would be Purification. It contains Citronella that Mosquitos hate. Another great addition can be Eucalyptus which is a tick repellent. Spray this solution onto the pets dry coat. Stay away from their eyes, nose, mouth and genitals. When outdoors for prolonged periods spray 2-3 times a day or for repeated visits outside, re spray.
This is great for people, too. Spray on clothes, skin, and hair before you go outdoors. Reapply every 4 hours.
-Here are some more Young Living insect repellent Essential Oils for humans and pets.
Thanks, Jen Crippen
Use these Young Living Essential to address these pests:
Fleas and Gnats: Idaho Tansy or Peppermint
Fleas on Dogs and Cats: put a drop of Purification into the palm of your hand add a drop of carrier oil and apply it to the spine or belly
Ticks: a drop of Purification or Peppermint right on the tick to release it from the skin. (I did this with Peppermint, it works). Treat the area with Thieves and then follow up with Animal Scents ointment.
Animal Scents ointment and Animal Scents shampoo are loaded with Young Living Essential Oils for added bug protection.
The Animal Scents Ointment is great for humans, too. Use it for cuts, scrapes, and bites. I have added Lavender and Copaiba to the ointment before putting it on an injury. It should be cleansed first with essential oils. Oregano or Tea Tree Essential Oils are great to use for cleansing.
If you happen to be a stung or get a mosquito bite apply Purification or Lavender to the area. Then apply the Animal Scents Ointment for added protection.
