View Full Version : Fleas
Not sure it this is the right area but I am looking for an essential oil or natural product to put on my dd to keep fleas off.
I would really like something I could dab on the ankles without spraying her legs.
Not to sure what you could use on her that wouldnt react or hurt her..
But my old boss who lived on a farm always swore by adding a heap of Garlic to his dogs food.(he cooked their food,never bought it)..(not sure if you have animals who are being eaten also)
They were pretty scruffy dogs and i never saw a flea or noticed them sratch..:thumbsup:
Would a normal mozzie repelant do the job?
My Sister did tell me that tea tree oil helped her with sandfly bites..??
a lady at daycare told me to give dd vitamin B. i am going to check with a pharmasist tomorrow as she keeps getting bitten by fleas and lately mossies have had a good munch too.
Citronella oil - but becareful on bubs skin, or teatree oil
What are the fleas on? Cat or dog - wouldn't you also need to treat your pet too?
I have been having terrible troubles with the same thing!! :(
We have a cat and a dog, both of which have been "frontlined" within the last 2 weeks (and they both get HEAPS of garlic) and I believe neither animal currently has the little buggers! :)
HOWEVER - the eggs can lie dormant in carpet, or dirt for up to 7 YEARS!!! When they get disturbed, they "wake up" and presto you have a flea problem!! :(
Poor Miss M must taste terribly sweet, coz she's being bitten often! I don't believe there is anything you can use on their skin - unfortunately! But I have found a few creams that help to stop the itch! :) "Mediquatro" seems good, and also "solosite" has been recommended to me.
Miss M's skin is ultra sensitive, and once bitten she can't leave the bites alone! :( She looks like she's got chicken pox - poor bugger!
I don't think I have helped much - sorry!
yeah my poor dd looks like that too:thumbsdown:
the best cream we found to clear it up quick and stop the itch is "soov". it has numbing properties so it helps by numbing the area so it won't itch for a while.
