There are a lot of anti-flea products in the market but these usually contain strange and harmful chemicals that could have potential side effects. Luckily, we have friends from everydayroots.com who can help us get rid of fleas naturally.

 

Flea collar

One remedy to a flea breakout is making a flea collar for your dog. This is one of the most convenient remedies as you wouldn’t have to reapply it every now and then. Just add 3 to 5 drops of cedar oil or lavender oil to 3 tablespoons of water. Use an eye dropper and apply 5 drops of the solution to a bandana or to your dog’s collar. Make him wear it and apply another 5 drops once a week.

 

Flea comb

This one is a more ruthless way to combat fleas. Boil a pot of water and add freshly sliced lemons to it. Turn off the heat and let it steep overnight. Dip a comb or brush to it the next day and run it through the dog’s hair. Sponges do a fine job especially for dog breeds with shorter fur.

 

Flea spray

If the fleas are still around after all those, you can now bombard them with a flea spray. Mix half cup of vinegar, half cup of apple cider, 1 quart of fresh water, 3 drops of lavender or cedar oil. Fill a decent spray bottle with the solution and spray it on your dog and his bedding for better results.
