Are Fleas the bane of your existence. Is your furbaby displaying all the classic signs that they may have a problem.
The itching and scratching can be as distressing for you as it is for them! The last thing you want to turn to is nasty chemicals that may inflame the situation. We have found some gentler solutions including this DIY Flea Collar made with essential oils.
Before we get into the process, one of the things we found in our travels that was of huge interest to us were these Amber Therapy Collars. We stumbled across them on Etsy.
They are another natural remedy. We have seen those Amber Teething Bracelets for babies but now collars are available for pets.
For years, Baltic Amber has been used as a natural curative. As natural tree resin, Baltic Amber repels parasites 2 ways.
1. Aromatic Repellent: Friction between the collar and the fur produce a resinous aroma, which parasites perceive as a threat.
2. Electrostatic repellent: static electricity is generated due to the friction caused between the amber collar the fur, and in turn, parasites receive a shock and fall off.
We have had people around the world let us know that our collars have helped their pet naturally with skin conditions, calming anxious behavior, arthritis, smelly breath, and post-operative pain and inflammation. You can get yours here
