It's the spray that I have been handling for the last week applying it to a dozen horses. I bought it at the store last weekend because the flies were biting the horses terribly making them stomp continuously. I've been having a slight head ache all week and feel sluggish/tired.
Today I found this recipe for fly spray on the web. It's without pesticides.
I had all the ingredients except for the Eucalyptus oil.
1 cup Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil
2 cups vinegar
1 tbs. Eucalyptus oil (found in health food stores-I didn't have)
2 Tbsp Dawn dish washing soap
I put these ingredients in a quart spray bottle and filled it almost to the top with water.
Optional: few tablespoons of citronella oil.
Shake spray bottle well before spraying on horse, human or dog!
I only used a small squirt (a tablespoon full) of skin so soft because I just had a trial sized bottle. I sprayed the horse at my house and my dog. Hopefully it will make the animals restful and my headache go away.
