Natural flea and tick powder is a powder that can be used to kill fleas and other insects as well once it comes in contact with them. The best part about this powder is that it is cheaper than most of the commercial products and it is equally and sometimes more effective than the commercialized products.
To make this powder you will need the following ingredients:
- Arrowroot powder
- Food grade diatomaceous earth
- Neem powder
- Peppermint essential oil
- Powder duster
- Eucalyptus essential oil
- Citronella essential oil
- Diatomaceous Earth
Follow these instructions carefully:
Mix three parts of neem powder with three parts of diatomaceous earth and three parts of arrowroot powder. What’s good about the use of arrowroot is the fact that you can use this blend as many times as you want without causing any irritations to the skin of your pet.
Once done, add 30 drops of citronella, peppermint, and eucalyptus oil. Make sure to mix everything very well.
Now put the obtained powder in a powder duster and start distributing the powder into your pet’s fur and make sure not to accidentally apply the blend on your pet’s face because it can cause irritation. For safety reasons, use this method outdoors. Once you’ve distributed the powder on your pet’s fur, massage it even deeper using your hands and repeat as much as you need.
