How can I make a homemade flea and tick bath?

Homemade Flea Bath

Does your dog have a flea and tick problem? If your dog is infested with fleas, your first course of action should be to get him in the tub. Drench him and scrub him down with a good flea and tick shampoo. Then, rinse him off completely and add a few drops of Lavender or Tea Tree oil to his coat.

Want to make an herbal flea dip? Steep two cups of fresh rosemary leaves in a couple pints of boiling water for thirty minutes. Next, strain the liquid, remove the leaves and add 8 additional pints of warm water. Pour the mixture over the dog and allow to dry—do not rinse.

The best way to get rid of fleas is to scrub the animal with dawn, then wrap them in in white towel and comb the fleas out with a flea brush. Wash them again with dawn and apply advantage to the back of the neck.

The best way to remove fleas is to bathe them with dawn and apply advantage and use a flea comb afterwards. But the tree oil is a very interesting way, thank you!
