Vinegar of the Four Thieves
I have a dog, and I'm not looking forward to flea season. When the weather gets warm, they come out in force. This year, in addition to regular dog-washing, vacuuming, and personal hygiene, I'm going to try the Vinegar of the Four Thieves. The options for doggie flea control all seem pretty toxic, and this looks like an all-natural pest control that has gotten good reviews. I'll be using it on both myself and the dog.
Equal amounts of rosemary, sage, wormwood, peppermint, lavender and garlic are steeped in vinegar for two weeks. That's it! I'll let you know how it goes.
