A smidge off topic, but this is a blend I use for a flea collar for my dog!

Take a bandana (that has been washed) and soak it in the following mixture:

teaspoon alcohol (vodka, brandy, etc.)
1 drop Cedarwood
1 drop Lavender
1 drop Citronella
1 drop Thyme
Mix with 4 garlic capsules (break open and add to the above mixture)
