    That sounds amazing, is it pet friendly? I tend to keep rosemary or peppermint oil mixed in with the straw so the bugs stay away from my Labradors.

    • Good morning and forgive me for taking so long in replying to your question. I rub fennel on my pup and cats. And they have no problem with any pests. In fact, since I have been doing that I haven’t seen one flea on them. As far as this recipe goes, there is nothing that is poisonous to pets. But due to the vodka in the recipe, I wouldn’t use it on my pets. I would be scared I would get the alcohol in their eyes. Also I know my small pup’s skin is sensitive, so the vodka would cause a skin rash on her. You have to remember that animal’s skin is much more sensitive than our. Now if you wanted to fixed some up in a breathable bottle and put next to your pets’ beds, that might be a safer way to go. But my general rule for as my pets goes, if it has alcohol in it, I don’t even think about putting it on them. I hope this helps you out. Again, forgive me for taking so long to respond to your question.
