DIY: Natural Flea & Tick Control

Flea and and tick season is upon us in full force!

If you’re like me, you choose to keep you pets safe and use all natural, chemical and pesticide free, safe, effective alternatives. How do I know these recipes work? I’ve used them on my own pets.

In addition to these all natural recipes, I recommend adding a couple drops of essential oils; lemon grass, peppermint, lavender and clove to your Buddha Dog collars monthly or as needed. I always add fresh drop right before a hike.

* For the recipes that call for essential oils – use only 100% pure organic, therapeutic grade essential oils

Witch Hazel and Essential Oils Spray (for dogs only)

  • Fill an 8 once spray bottle with distilled or boiled (cooled) water;
  • Add enough witch hazel to almost fill the balance of the spray bottle;
  • Add essential oils:
    • 10 drops of clove essential oil (if your dog is pregnant substitute use eucalyptus essential oil instead);
    • 10 drops of  rosemary essential oil ;
    • 10 drops of citrus (lemon or lemon grass, orange or grapefruit) essential oil .
  • Shake well
  • Spritz your dog’s fur;
    •  Don’t soak your dog’s or cat’s fur with this spray;
    • Just mist your dog or cat with the spray;
    • The scent of the essential oils repels the insects

Rosemary Spray – Specifically for Fleas (for cats and dogs)

  • Steep 1/8 cup of fresh rosemary in 16 ounces of boiling water for 30 minutes;
  • Allow the resulting infusion to cool;
  • Strain the liquid, discard the rosemary;
  • Pour the liquid into a spray bottle;
  • Shake well;
  • Spritz your dog’s fur.

Caution when spraying near your dogs eyes!

To apply to you pets face:

  • Spray the palm of your hand with the solution;
  • Rub your hands gently over your pets nose, around eyes, behind their ears, etc.

Diatomaceous Earth  (for dogs and cats)

Use ONLY food grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE)*

It is soft siliceous solid composed of skeletons of small single-celled prehistoric aquatic plants known as diatoms. It has many uses, including natural pest control for pets, pest control for home, garden and farming. In its natural form it is organic, non-toxic and safe to use.

DE kills fleas, ticks, lice and other pests on dogs, cats and other animals within 72 hours. It is known as a mechanical insecticide. All natural, it kills by physical action, not chemical, by puncturing the insect’s exoskeleton and absorbing the moisture in their bodies. It causes the bugs to dehydrate and die and can be very effective.

Rub the DE into your dog’s or cat’s fur.

DE soaks up moisture, so leaving DE on your companion animals skin for a prolonged time can dry-out his, her skin;

Dust your lawn, gardens and pet beds.

DE is also a great way for ridding the body of internal parasites

2 Million Dogs – Puppy Up Walk November 3rd

A cause very close to our hearts… April 11, 2012 I lost my beloved Henry to Lymphoma.

Buddha Dog will proudly be a sponsor for 2 Million Dogs on November 3 for the Baltimore Puppy Up walk – Team Laya and Blake. “It began with a promise to raise awareness of canine cancer one mile, one city, and one person at a time.” http://www.kintera.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1085294

RESTORE & VITALITY

BUDDHA DOG Restore and Vitality Powders and Gel are a natural clay product consisting of 100% USP Kaolin Clay found naturally all over the world. After over 30 years of research, a method was discovered to energize and regenerate the body through the infusion of high frequency sound waves. These inaudible sound waves produce a special signal that helps trillions of cells within the body come into harmony. This harmonious tone seems to have a miraculous effect upon organizing all human, plant and animal DNA. This was a lost ancient technology that was used by Native Americans as well as many other cultures around the world.

After a lengthy process of exposure to these sound waves, the clay has a natural ability to harness this energy and hold it indefinitely. When taken orally, it initiates a multi-stage effect through out the entire body. Its activity eliminates and destroys unhealthy cells and activates the rebuilding of healthy ones. It acts as a cleansing agent eliminating all noxious substances. Toxins are attracted and bound to our clay and become subject to immediate elimination while healing energy is delivered to the body where it’s needed. Vibrational exposure/ sound frequencies in this clay dislodges congestion and blocked energy flow and have the power to interrupt destructive events within the body that could normally lead to many degenerative diseases.  Restore & Vitality balance and enhance the body’s own natural energy.

In recent years experts have reported regarding clinical application that it produces improved circulation, enhanced sleep regulation, increased cell activity, enhanced metabolism, strengthened immune system and improved wound healing. Also, it has been noted to enhance the natural healing capability and immunity of the body without any side effect or drugs.

Make Restore and Vitality part of you and your pets daily routine.

*BUDDHA DOG Restore & Vitality products are not intended to diagnose or cure, they simply provide the body with a signal so that it can heal itself.

BENEFITS OF HEMP

Many of you may not know just how great hemp is.

Organic hemp is a great choice when looking for a natural dog collar and other pet products. Pet owners are becoming more aware and wanting to raise their pets holistically, free of chemicals and toxins. Buying pet products made of organic hemp is a great way to offer your companion a healthy lifestyle. Added benefit…by using hemp we are protecting the environment!

Buddha Dog wants only the best for our pets and our planet! GO HEMP!

SOLSTICE

BD celebrated the summer solstice by heading to the beach. The smell of the sea air and sand between our toes and paws, is there anything better? Feeling inspired and rejuvenated to head back in to the studio and create. How does cotton chambray sound, in a spectrum of sun bleached colors?

RADIATING LOVE & GRATITUDE

Welcome, we’re thrilled your here! It’s been a very busy few weeks at BD with the arrival of our newest family member and the launch of our website featuring our very first Spring/Summer collection. We are so grateful for everyone’s support and we look forward to bringing you many wonderful products in the near future to fully immerse yourself in the BD lifestyle.
