Is there any bugs more repulsive than fleas? All the diseases they carry…Gag!

Lavender mix: Here’s what you’ll need:
Spray bottle with a good mister (you don’t want one that only squirts)
Large lemon, sliced
1-bunch fresh lavender, or 1 Tblsp. dried
2-Cups of water
2-Tblsp. of Non-alcoholic Witch Hazel
Place all of your ingredients in the pot EXCEPT the Witch Hazel.
As a distilled astringent, you do not want to add the Witch Hazel because the heat will break down the benefits of the product. We’ll leave this out until the end.
Heat the pot over medium to medium-high heat and let simmer for roughly 30 minutes, or until you see the water begin to turn a light purple from the lavender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
After your repellent has cooled down to room temp (or at least cool enough that it won’t melt your bottle), pour your repellent through a fine-meshed strainer. You can discard the lavender and lemon remnants in the trash. Now that you have your strained infusion, you can pour in your Witch Hazel and give a good stir to combine.
Take your funnel and pour the mixture into your spray bottle. To add a little flair to your spray, insert a sprig of fresh rosemary or lavender into the bottle. Spray pet down.
It is good to keep in mind that this is a repellent only. It will not kill the fleas on your pet and is best used after you have given your pet a serious bath with a good scrub.
The bath will kill any fleas already on your pet, and the spray will repel any new fleas trying to attach themselves to your pets fresh, clean fur.

Baking Soda and Salt for Rugs and carpets:
Mix baking soda and salt together and sprinkle it all over your rugs, carpets, and floors and use it just like any other powder you would typically. Ratio doesn’t matter as long as its an equal ratio that can cover the entire desired area.
Apple Cider Vinger:
Apple cider vinegar must always be diluted when it is used externally for your cat. A typical dilution is 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup pure water (spring or distilled.) To use it topically, put the solution in a jar or a spray bottle. Avoid getting this solution into your cat’s eyes.
Dosage for Apple Cider Vinegar for Cats
Weight of Cat Amount of Apple Cider Vinegar
15-20 pounds 1/2 teaspoon
7-14 pounds 1/4 teaspoon
4-6 pounds 1/8 teaspoon
Under 4 pounds 5 drops
Alternately, you can add apple cider vinegar to your cats drinking water. Add 1/2 – 1 teaspoon to a cup of water. If your cat does not like this, try adding a pinch of baking soda to the water with the apple cider vinegar. The baking soda will reduce the acidity of the vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar is used internally for cats with bladder problems, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, allergies, asthma, and to repel fleas and other parasites.
