Let Bug Guard bring the natural protection of catnip, eucalyptus, citronella and six additional oils to your skin. This undiluted blend of oils is completely safe and nontoxic for you and your dogs. Don’t let the threat of bug-carried disease keep you from the health benefits of nature—avoid DEET and rely on the power of pure essential oils.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus citriodora), Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus), Clove Bud (Eugenia caryophyllata), Catnip (Nepeta cataria), Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana), Patchouli (Pogostemom cablin), Spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansi), Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) and Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens).
Fleas and ticks are irritating and can also be unhealthy for your pet. Unfortunately, so are many pesticides used to repel them. Chemicals in over-the-counter flea and tick repellents can cause skin irritation, hair loss, kidney damage, or even death. Essential oils distilled from plants are a natural and safe way to keep pests at bay.
Make a Spritzer to use on your dog
In a spray bottle add 5-6 drops of Bug Guard to 1 ounce of water the smaller your dog is use less Bug Guard per ounce of water. Once you have your spritzer, you can use this by gently spraying it onto your dog’s coat, legs, tummy and back. Rub it in well and apply it as necessary. Do not use any of the essential oils on your dogs face or around nose, ears and eyes. Respect the sensitive nose he/she has and go easy when using aromatic substances such as essential oils.
Add a few drops of the Bug Guard to your dog’s collar. The scent should last several days, but you will need to reapply the oil when it fades.
