Natural Flea and Insect Spray for Dogs


This flea and bug spray for dogs is formulated with a range of natural insect repellents, using peppermint as a base.

Peppermint
(Mentha piperita) is a widely recognized natural insect repellant and deodorant, with the added benefit of being soothing to irritated or itching skin. Decoctions (or teas) like the Peppermint one used in this product are an easy and effective way of imparting the benefits of natural herbs to grooming products.

This formula also incorporates a synergistic combination of essential oils chosen for their insect repelling, deodorizing, and anti-bacterial properties.
