What is TerraShield (Repellent Blend)?
This unique blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Thyme, Cedarwood, and Peppermint essential oils is a newer formula that is even more effective at pest prevention. You know the culprits…fleas, ticks, mosquitos, and flies…it is that time of year again!
The blend is already diluted in sesame seed oil so it is perfectly safe to use on people and large animals. Because of the Citronella, Peppermint, and Thyme, I do recommend further dilution for smaller animals like dogs and cats.
How to use TerraShield Repellent Blend with animals:
TerraShield can be diffused, or applied topically – Not for internal use.
For horses, cattle, sheep, and goats, use topically undiluted every 6-8 hours as needed or try this fly spray recipe.
For dogs over 25 lbs., put a few drops on your hands and rub down your dog prior to going outdoors. Or you can create a spray with 50% TerraShield and 50% carrier oil or filtered water (Shake before applying).
For dogs under 25 lbs., dilute 50% with carrier oil and then use 1-2 drops in your hands to rub down dog prior to going outdoors.
For cats, diffusion is preferred. For natural pest repellant, you can also try Cedarwood Essential Oil diluted to 1%.
The new formula is the labeled “Repellent Blend”. The older formula will say “Outdoor Blend” and is still a great option pest control.
