This is Becca and AnnahMarie.
Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on Organic Solutions To Keep Fleas Away.
Keeping them out:
The irritating itching and scratching seems boundless when there is a flea bite. Cut these pests out at the source!
Aside from the exquisite scent, Lavender works as a splendid flea repellent. This amazing spice can be used to treat acne, sunburns, stiff joints, and headaches/migraines just to name a few!
Believe it or not, flea actually detest the smell of Lavender! We at Organic Gurlz Gardens practice placing some fresh sprigs around were our dogs favorite sleeping spot inside the house is.
This makes fleas, well, flee!
With all the flea-fighting powers this herb has, citronella has earned its right to be on the list.
Growing up to 6 feet tall, citronella is the herb to choose to kick out those annoying fleas. Just place a little plant on the windowsill of the kitchen or bedroom or near a carpeted area. Fleas love to lay eggs in a “shielded” zone. (If you’re looking for citronella, make sure you select a variety such as winterianus; some other citronella varieties won’t have the same effect. Some aren’t even the real thing – they’re just citronella-scented!)
We at Organic Gurlz Gardens believe every family deserves true, organic plants. With us, the standard is set and unwavering as the quality of our soil, compost, and not to negate our raised garden beds!
Despite the name, this plant isn’t royal; nor does it bear pennies.
A lesser known herb, the pennyroyal may hold the golden key to deterring fleas when used properly.
Although many stand by using the pennyroyal to deter pests, there is a catch.
In recent studies on the active ingredient in the species of pennyroyal, it is not the wisest move to use the herb internally (for animals or humans).
**We at OGG recommend “Proceeding with caution” when dealing with the pennyroyal plant. **
These herbs are some of the best to use for preventing those troublesome fleas from existing on your pet or in your home!
Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
