Herbal Flea Collars

by Helen Berge

Herbal flea collars are always appreciated as cold weather arrives and the animals are indoors more often.
There are two different methods you can try in making your own herbal flea collars for your pets.

The first is to use a length of cotton lamp wick (available in most hardware stores) that has been saturated in insect-repellent herbal oils.

Using a cloth measuring tape, measure the diameter your cat or dog's neck, remembering to allow room for a Velcro closure.
