Rosemary Flea Wash
Using a Rosemary Wash as a Flea Repellant
Rosemary is a woody perennial herb used for centuries as both a culinaryherb and a medicinal plant. Rosemary has some slight antiseptic properties, too. You can brew it into a tea or wash that is applied to your pet's coat to ward off fleas.
It's important to try to rid your dog of as many fleas as possible before using a rosemary flea repellant and any other herbal treatments. Give your pet a good bath, and wash any bedding or other flea-infested items.
How to Make a Rosemary Wash

Rosemary, a natural flea repellant, can be made into a rinse water wash for your dog. This will repel fleas while leaving your pet's coat silky, glossy, and smelling beautiful.
To make a rosemary wash, take two pints of water and bring to a boil.
Add two cups of fresh rosemary leaves and keep it boiling for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, turn off the heat and allow the water to cool. Strain out the leaves and save the water. You can throw away the leaves.
Pour the cooled water into a glass container with a lid. Only use it when it is completely cool, and store excess in the refrigerator.

Using a Rosemary Wash
Using a rosemary wash is easy, especially if you're already bathing your dog.
First, give your pet a bath using your favorite shampoo. Rinse the dog thoroughly and always avoid getting soap and water into his ears and eyes.
Once the dog is rinsed, pour the cool rosemary water over the animal, making sure to completely cover areas where fleas like to congregate, such as the base of the tail.
Do not rinse out the rosemary infused water; just let it dry naturally.
Apply again when necessary.
