Why your pet needs Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Oil Blend
The newest addition to our popular Herbal Defense line, this concentrated insect repellent oil blend uses the natural power of Neem Oil, Citronella, Lavender, Cedar, and other essential oils to keep annoying insect pests away from your dog. Although pesticide sprays and squeeze-on products are one quick-fix solution, for most of us, the risks of using these toxic chemicals on and around our human and animal loved ones are just not worth it. Our all natural repellent oil is 100% DEET and pesticide free, with a scent that people love, but biting insects can’t stand.
Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Oil keeps mosquitoes and biting flies off your pet's vulnerable ears, saving days of scratching and discomfort from itchy bites. It will deter ticks and reduce your risk of picking up those disease carrying hitchhikers on your daily walk or when out for a hike. And of course, this natural repellent works great to protect your dog for a trip to the dog park, doggy day care, training class, etc., to minimize the chances of bringing home fleas, the worst insect enemy of all.
Our Herbal Defense Oil also works well as part of a holistic flea prevention or treatment plan. If you are preparing for flea season or already involved in a battle with fleas, please see our article, The Natural Approach to Flea Control, for helpful tips and suggestions. We've also grouped our natural flea remedies into convenient kits based on the severity of your flea situation to save you time and money in gathering your weapons to win the war on fleas, safely and naturally.

Why Go Natural?
Toxic chemical pesticides have been known to cause immediate health crises in some dogs and cats, and perhaps worse, these chemicals can circulate and accumulate in our pets' bodies, doing unseen damage to vital organs that may go undetected for years. And then there is the damage these chemical residues can do to our children, ourselves, and the environment.
Pesticides used in the home and yard leave residue in our systems, too, and many pesticide residues end up in our water supply, with their lingering presence detectable in soil and water samples for many years, and perhaps indefinitely. Current research findings suggest that beyond their immediate toxic impact on natural ecosystems, many chemical residues break down into compounds that mimic hormones and may wreak havoc on wildlife populations that are exposed to them.
In many parts of the country, insect pests like fleas are becoming immune to the pesticides being used against them, creating "super pests" that become even tougher to eradicate and require even more toxic solutions to kill them. Using natural products to keep insects away prevents this problem.
Our Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense products are a natural line of insect repellent products that are non-toxic, and safe to use for dogs, cats*, and humans. These top quality natural insect repellants use herbal ingredients to safely and effectively make your pets less attractive to insect parasites, without the dangerous effects of those toxic chemical products. Herbal Defense and our other natural products for protection from mosquitoes, fleas and ticks give you peace of mind, as well as great results.
*Please note that Herbal Defense Oil is for use with dogs only, as it contains concentrated essential oils that can be toxic to cats. We suggest Herbal Defense Spray
for use with cats.
When fighting fleas, especially a severe infestation, it is always more effective to approach the problem from more than one angle. Here are some other strategies that you may want to consider along with Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Oil:
- Only Natural Pet All-in-One Flea Remedy is the one solution to rid your dogs, cats, carpet, furniture, and pet bedding of any annoying insects.
- Consider our Herbal Defense Shampoo and Conditioner to keep your pet's coat clean and soft, while repelling insect parasites.
- If you have an outdoor cat, consider using our Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray, an alternative to Herbal Defense Oil that is safe for use on cats.
- Many people find our Brewer's Yeast & Garlic tabs to be helpful in making their pets less attractive to fleas.
- The quality of your pet's food is an important determinant in their ability to fight fleas. A poor diet means a weaker immune system and greater attractiveness to fleas. If you are not feeding your pet a high quality, natural food, you might want to consider changing. Any of the brands sold at Only Natural Pet Store for dogs and for cats would qualify as high quality and natural.
In general the difficulty and length of time required to win a battle against a flea infestation depends on the severity of the problem and the environment in which you live.
