Just this past week, we’ve had to pick a few ticks off of some of our adorably furry clients. I received this awesome recipe for an all natural tick spray preventative from Dogs Naturally and wanted to make sure to share with you all.

Blend together:

1 tsp vegetable glycerin
½ oz grain alcohol or vodka
1 tsp sulfated castor oil
10 drops grapefruit seed extract
7 oz distilled or spring water
2 drops geranium essential oil
2 drops rosewood essential oil
3 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops myrrh essential oil
2 drops opoponax essential oil
1 drop bay leaf essential oil

This will make 8 oz of spray. Store in a dark or opaque glass spritz bottle. Spray and apply to your dog using your hands before walks in long grass or wooded areas.

This spray will also deter fleas and other flying annoying pests while you’re out an about enjoying our warm summer weather.
