Ask The Dog Guide: Specifics On Natural Flea Prevention

June 19th, 2008 by Dan

Question:
Hi! I read your blog about Natural Flea and Tick Preventive and I had a doubt. When you say “Add the following: 10 drops of tea tree oil, 1 tsp. of powdered pennyroyal (or 10 drops of the oil)” i should add the both or just one? And another question, is the amount of water important?

Answer:
Thanks for your interest in trying this recipe! You should use both the tea tree oil and then *either* the powdered pennyroyal OR the oil – not both. As far as the water goes – we use what fits in a spray bottle – the range can be anywhere between 16 – 24 oz.
