So i'm totally excited! I got my sign i ordered from Ebay today that says A House Is Not A Home Without A German Shepherd. Well then my OTHER package came that has my first order of Essential Oils i ordered! I'm totally excited. I'm tired of spending money on products that say they repel and kill fleas and ticks and various other bugs and Riley having allergic reactions to it. I swear this dog is basically allergic to EVERY flea and tick product and i'm always looking for natural ways to handle bugs and such. Riley is severely allergic to fleas. So much so, he usually ends up wearing the cone of shame all summer because he's a magnet for fleas and chews all the fur he can get to off himself, especially at the base of his tail. Cant afford to continually take him to the vet because he's ripped himself to peices. Well i have a whole army of plans. Essential Oils, natural remedies and natural insect deterents. I'm excited. the dogs will be wearing lemongrass oil on their collars and i plan to invest in eucalytus leaves to put under the furniture along with some eucalyptus oils and ceder chips. I intend on planting what i can in maryland to repel fleas/ticks from our yard. and best part.... Riley isnt allergic to any of it!!!!! I'm excited to do this. I prefer more natural remedies but until recently i didnt know you could do it for your pets. Totally excited! Sorry. had to share. If anyone has any other natural tips for flea repellents and such i'd be happy to hear them!
