Does your dog sometimes itch or have the occasional hot spot?

Most dogs will have fleas at some stage in their lifetime, regardless of whether they are taking Frontline or any other flea medication. Chances are that you’ve discovered these little critters and have just about tried everything. Here’s what I’ve discovered. An instant flea relief organic shampoo. Rooibos tea and Castille organic soap. Although dipping your furry friend in luke warm Rooibos tea as a final rinse will deter any future fleas, the combination of the Castille soap with grapeseed oil and the Rooibos tea is tremendously effective, and does help.

Rooibos Tea

Rooibos is made from an African Bush, and not a tea leaf, so it is naturally decaffeinated. It has low tannin levels compared to other teas, and contains phenolic compounds including flavonones and dihydrochakones.  Rooibos also assists with nervous tension, allergies and digestive problems in dogs.It is used for dermatological problems in both humans and animals.

Used as a natural skin cleanser for dogs and an anti- itch dip, this tea is easy to use, as well as being one hundred percent biodegradable and organic.

Small dog  organic homemade flea dip. For large dogs double up on ingredients.

  • 3 drops coconut oil will give a bubbly lather .
