06 August 2014 | By

collarThere are many options for flea and tick control available on the market, and among the most popular is the flea collar. Unfortunately, some of them contain chemicals that you definitely wouldn’t want in your home–much less wrapped around your beloved pooch’s neck!

With that in mind, the best option is to create your own flea and tick collar. You’ll save yourself some money, and it’s super easy, too!


Here’s what you’ll need:

-collar (preferably made with any kind of absorbent material)
-any of the following essential oils: lavender, lemon, pennyroyal, lemongrass, or eucalyptus
-eye dropper

Just apply a few drops of essential oil to the collar, and let dry.

And you’re done! You can also add a couple of drops into a spray bottle filled with water and spritz some of the mixture around the areas your dog frequents to keep the fleas and ticks away.
