1 tablespoon fresh rosemary OR 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 pint bottled or tap water
Note: You can often find fresh rosemary in the grocery store, even off season.
Blend all ingredients well in the blender. Strain liquid using cheesecloth or a tea-leaves strainer (a regular strainer will let too many large pieces through, which will clog up the spray bottle)
Pour mixture into saucepan and head over low heat for 20 minutes. Strain liquid once again and put into a liquid spray bottle once cooled.
To use: spray on dogs, rubbing into coat (you do not need to rinse it off). You can also spray dog’s bedding and other favorite places. Be careful around the dog’s eyes, as it will bother them (and it will go from being a fun thing since they are being petted and rubbed, to a thing where they will run and hide when they see the spray bottle!)
Note: Due to the citrus, this flea remedy should not be used on cats.
