Homemade flea repellent for your home
Remember when my doggy got under a flea attack? I decided to take a natural approach instead of a “heavy duty” commercial solution, mainly because I love my doggy as much as I love my family. Since I would never expose my family to chemicals when there’s a natural, healthier solution, I thought the same should apply to our dog too. So I made this natural flea repellent.
But for that to work at full capacity I had to apply sort of the same method to my house. Fleas love carpets and since doggy boy likes to spend a great amount of time on the carpets around the house instead of running wild in the backyard there were fleas everywhere. Luckily we don’t have so many carpets so the cleaning wasn’t such a burden.
Do you need a homemade flea repellent for your home too? I totally recommend using this powder which will not put your family at risk and will have great, immediate results (well…within 24 hours). I used Borax, Baking soda, Salt and lemon essential oils from Young Living. Borax and baking soda will kill the adult fleas, the salt will dry up the eggs and the essential oils will make your house smell absolutely divine! Plus if you use lemon or lavender scents, these are natural flea repellents so any possible unwanted visitors will stay away from your house.
I sprinkled this powder on all carpets in the house and left it to work for 24 hours. Meanwhile I applied the flea repellent on my dog so the fleas wouldn’t have any chance of survival. After 24 hours, I vacuumed, threw the sack away, cleaned the furniture and sprayed some of the natural flea repellent I used for the dog around the house. We got rid of the fleas because we didn’t have so many, we caught it on time but if you are not as lucky, you may need to repeat the process at regular intervals.
