Ask The Dog Guide: Specifics On Natural Flea Prevention

June 19th, 2008 by Dan

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?

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.
