Making Carpet & Upholstery Flea Powder

You’ll need:

1 cup either powdered salt, Borax or Diatomaceous Earth

20 drops of essential oils

bowl

airtight container

Process:

Pour powder into a bowl being careful not to inhale. If using salt, you’ll have to grind it first. I use a  coffee grinder.

Add 20 drops off various essential oils. The best oils for flea treatments are lemon, rosemary, citronella, cedar, peppermint and geranium.

Mix well

Pour into an airtight container. Something with a shaker top would work well.

To use:

Sprinkle lightly all over carpet ,on and under furniture and cushions, in areas where pets lay and in pet beds.

Leave overnight.

Vacuum.

You can leave it longer in places like behind furniture and under cushions that are not accessible to people, kids and small pets.

*As with all powders, be careful not to inhale while mixing and pouring.
