My partner and I moved into our new home last year and all was okay but this year we have had a few fleas in the house which we are shocked at so I will definitely be trying this out, I also love the DIY container it is in, fantastic idea, I will be making one of these as well! )

I bought a flea repellant shampoo for my furry companions but it didn't seem to work as efficiently as I thought and it cost a fortune. I probably need to clean their room too because fleas live everywhere but i am gladly going to try this homemade recipe.

I am really interested in knowing the effectiveness of this product. It does not matter what product I apply to my fur babies it causes some sort of irritation. The length of time the fleas are absent does not justify the side effects that they experience.

My Mam has two terriers but her Snow White terrier seems to pick up fleas much faster than any other dog out there, they just seem to love matter what my Mam uses she seems to get fleas nearly weekly! I can't wait to give her this recipe and see if it works she is currently spending a small fortune on shop bought products so touch wood this works!

As my oldest fur baby ages, almost any harsh chemical causes skin problems. I am always fighting the good fight to keep the fleas out and this seems like a great addition the the mix. Thank you for the recipe. My husband will love the fragrance, and the fact there will be no fleas.

Flea repellent is so unbelievably expensive, so it's great that there's a cheaper alternative! I also hate the way they smell, and it sounds like this treatment actually has a nice scent.

I will definitely have to try this recipe for flea repellent. I have used several in the past with little luck. I want to try this one and see how it works. Last year, the natural remedies seemed to work so much better, so I want to be prepared for this summer early.

Great repellent flea recipe and natural and I love the idea of adding a essential oil with it for smell or added benifits. I use Advantax right now because it works but do not like putting it on any dog let alone Roscoe but if we do not he gets covered with fleas. My son used a commercial flea repellent and his dogs started acting funny so he immediately gave them baths so I hate using them. I will pass this on to my son for his dogs because right now he takes them to vet for treatments. One question though. Is borax safe if dogs lick their fur or chew on paws? Greattutorial and inexpensive products.
