Homemade Essential Oil Fly Spray for Horses Recipe
Make sure to use organic raw apple cider ‘with the mother’. My recommended brand of raw apple cider vinegar is Braggs 100% pure raw apple cider vinegar. Do not use the synthetic red store-bought apple cider vinegar.
This homemade essential oil fly spray might not smell good (since it contains garlic oil and neem oil) but it does work and that’s much better than buying those chemical-filled toxic fly sprays right?!
What you need:
- 1 cup raw apple cider vinegar
- 20 drops geranium oil
- 10 drops garlic oil
- 2 tbsp neem oil
- 2 cups distilled water
- 32 oz spray bottle
- Simply fill a 16 oz spray bottle with 1 cup raw apple cider vinegar and 2 cups filtered water. You can also use filtered water.
- Now add 20 drops geranium essential oil, 10 drops garlic oil and 2 tbsp neem oil.
- Shake the spray bottle well.
- To use, lightly mist the spray on your horse. Do not spray on your horse’s eyes, nose, ears or mouth! When applying this spray around the eyes, don’t spray directly on that area – just use a sponge or spray on a small washcloth and dab on the area. You can also use a fly mask for keeping pesky flies out of your horse’s ears and eyes.
