Yes! And the fleas die instantly. I make a flea spray that consists of essential oils that works beautifully. Here's my recipe:

1/2 cup witch hazel
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
12 drops of Lemon Tea Tree (kills fleas and ticks)
4 drops of Eucalyptus (Flea Repellant)
4 drops of Cedarwood (Flea Repellant, Skin and Coat Conditioner)
10 drops of Lavender (anti-bacterial, anti-itch, and calming. This is the best oil to use for about all common animal ailments. It is a great first aid oil soothing to skin irritations, such as rashes and hot spots.)

*Palo Santo is also an excellent essential oil. One drop kills ticks dead. My Boxer had a blood-filled tick latched on to him and my husband wanted to pluck it out. I suggested we try the Palo Santo. We put one drop on the tick and it died and fell off our dog. My husband was blown away. 0=)


Another option for the recipe above is to replace the Lemon Tea Tree and Eucalyptus with 10 drops of Palo Santo instead.

Here's to flea-free pets!!
