Pull an old piece of towel, or other thick material down over a steel bristle brush until it is about 1 inch from the base, depending on the length of your pets coat. Prepare an bowl of warm water and mix 6 drops of the following oils
- or pine
- or lavender
- or 2 drops each
Brushing will collect the fleas and eggs in the material, which should be rinsed out thoroughly several times during the brushing.
If infestation is serious, put the essential oils directly on the material first, rub the material together to disperse, and rinse with plain warm water.
