e outdoors "annoyance free" with this DIY Natural Outdoor Spray for Dogs.This natural blend allows pups to run free & not be bothered with bites or buzzes.Summer time. It’s when the sun shines, the weather gets warmer, and your  pups can finally go outside in New York and roll their backs in the grass.  This lovely season also brings an army of mosquitoes, black flies, and ticks.   YUK!   Boo!

Dexter, my dog, loves hiking and running in the woods whenever possible.  One of the worst things in the world though is when he is SO uncomfortable when he gets swarmed with all kinds of flying critters. I HATE to see this!  I ant him to be enjoying the outdoors without things buzzing around his head or body.  This DIY All Natural Outdoor Spray for Dogs forms an annoyance free bubble around him so that he can concentrate on the things he loves best. That would be hiking, slogging through muddy puddles, and laying in the sun all day long like a beached whale. Now he can do this safely and we can all relax! 🙂

Your pup can enjoy the outdoors “annoyance free” with this DIY Natural Outdoor Spray for Dogs. This special all natural blend allows dogs to run free and not to be bothered with bites or buzzes.  The tings that I put on Dexter’s skin is very important to me.  I want to keep him as synthetic-chemical free as possible. Using this DIY Natural Outdoor Spray for Dogs keeps everyone happy and unchewed!

Here’s what you need to make 2-3 oz:

***** I ONLY use Young Living Essential Oils, especially when using them with Dexter.  They are the highest quality, PURE, cold-pressed or steam distilled (meaning NO chemicals are used in their production like most store-bought ones), and SAFE.  Using SAFE oils with dogs is SO important because they metabolize things differently than people. PLEASE DON’T USE ANY ESSENTIAL OILS THAT YOUR DOG CAN INGEST UNLESS YOU KNOW THAT THEY ARE CHEMICAL FREE!!!!!   Young Living Essential Oils go through STRICT testing and monitoring procedures to insure their purity and content.  They are a Start to Seed company which means that you can trace the lots of oils back to the very fields they were grown on, therefore their production process as well.  Click HERE to order Young Living Essential Oils.

Here’s why this all works:

  • Jojoba or sweet almond oil, and olive oil are all carrier oils  that allow the spray to coat the skin and fur in a fine mist.
  • Lavender, Geranium, and Purification Essential Oils are not liked by many bugs. Purification Essential Oil is a special Young Living blend that include citronella. Citronella has been proven to repel annoying insects.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a spray bottle and shake very well to combine.
  2. Spray generously on your dog’s fur and under side, obviously avoiding eyes, nose, and sensitive areas.

  1. The mosquitoes are so bad by me this year despite multiple spraying. This is a great idea to keep your pet as comfortable as you yourself would want to be.

  2. I love this homemade spray for dogs made with essential oils ! I am a true believer that essential oils are the most effective and healthiest repellent available. It is also important to note that there are essential oils that are toxic to dogs :-). Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  3. Ummmm, will someone look at me funny if I use this spray on myself! lol. I sounds so great and I love anything with lavender!!
