I wanted to name this post, Damn Flies Fly Spray! I do hate flies, I don't even like them near my compost pile and the misery they can cause animals is criminal. It's been such a warm winter in Wyoming, that the flies are emerging early but I'm ready for them, with an organic solution that conditions, repels, heals and sanitizes! I'm going to love showing you how to put your therapeutic quality essential oils to work on your urban or rural homestead.
- Pour out 1 cup of the ACV, set aside in another container. Add the essential oils directly to the 32 oz bottle of organic apple cider vinegar and then add the witch hazel. Shake well before each use.
- Dampen a bandana or clean cloth with warm water and wring out well. Spray the concoction directly on a folded cloth until saturated and wipe down legs, belly and face, wiping carefully around the eyes and ears. Reapply as needed.
- Do not spray near the eyes.
When you are in control of what you're putting on your animals you're going to be better equipped to know what they're reacting to should there be a reaction. Most insect or fly repellent products today for animals have no labeling requirements and it can be a more than a challenge to find out what all the ingredients are in a product. Last but not least, I chose CW Lavender and CW Rosemary for my Animal Friendly Fly Spray for the obvious reasons; anti-fungal skin care, healing and soothing of bites along with their natural repellent properties especially when used together. Let's be smart, let's be safe and let's be prepared for P E S T season! Make your own!
