Formulated by Dr. Bob Goldstein, our Nature's Protection™ Flea & Tick Herbal Bug Spray is infused with a natural blend of aromatic herbs and essential oils that have a fresh, minty fragrance. The preventative powder and minty scent of these gentle oils are non-offensive to people and dogs, but loathed by fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. Our spray is great for hikes, long walks, romps on the beach, boating, or simply lazy days in the yard. We suggest spraying the paws, underbelly, and gently mist the back and neck, daily. You should reapply if your dog swims. Shake well before use to activate the oils. The spray is safe for people too, especially kids, if used as directed.
Made by our friends in France.
The bug spray is not intended for cats, but can be used on cats. Cats do not like to be sprayed; they do not like the "pshit" noise that the spray makes, and they do not like their fur to be covered by the spray. The recommendation we make saying “not intended for cats” is not linked to the formulation. If a cat accepts to be sprayed, then there is no problem using the spray.
Active ingredients in Spray: Cedarwood oil 1%, Peppermint oil 1%
Inert Ingredients: Glycerin, Isopropyl, Alcohol, Sodium Ricinoleate, Water.
Made with only naturally occurring flea and tick repellents:
Virginia Cedarwood Oil – Known to be repellent to fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, but completely non-toxic to animals and people. It’s considered to have antiseptic, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties and to be beneficial for the skin and coat.
Peppermint Oil* - Medicinal, relieves stress, repels insects, and has a natural minty scent.
*Any essential oil, in rare cases, may cause an allergic reaction. However, the oils we use in our Nature’s Protection™ products are at such low levels that the risk of any potential reactions are further eliminated. For cat parents: Cats don’t possess the enzymes glucuronyl transferase and therefore their liver requires more time to eliminate phenolic compounds (which are found in some essential oils) and in medications such as aspirin or acetaminophen. Neither peppermint oil nor Virginia cedarwood oil contain these compounds. Contact your veterinarian for more information.
