Healthy and Safe Alternatives

Conventional medicine, dictates the use of pharmaceutical drugs and chemicals that have proven harmful and/or fatal to many  unsuspecting pets and pet owners.  New Beginnings encourages the use of natural products for the control of fleas and ticks.


Help Your Pet Fight Fleas Effectively

Pets who scratch more often may be experiencing a flea infestation. To treat fleas in pets, you can try using specially formulated natural and organic shampoos. Just make sure to use cold water when rinsing the shampoo. Warm or hot water can exacerbate itching, while cold water can help in alleviating inflammation. These natural treatment methods can also work for either your dog or cat.

Rosemary Flea Dip
Take 2 cups of fresh rosemary sprigs, boil them in water for half an hour and strain the liquid. Add the resulting mixture to 1 gallon of water.
Once the solution is warm but not too hot, pour the water on an infested dog and let it air dry.

Lavender Essential Oil
Place a few drops of the oil at the back of your dog’s neck and at the base of the tail to control a flea infestation.

A checklist for what to consider in the ultimate flea, tick, and mosquito deterrent and removal:

  • Has NO synthetic chemicals
  • Contains ingredients formulated by nature
  • Is available without a prescription and can be used daily
  • Has a pleasant odor but is designed to create an undesirable scent to pests
  • Needs to be fit for use on pet bedding and does not stain fur.



Three flea and tick repellents for safe and effective protection. All three repellent products were designed to be used either individually or together, depending on where you live and your pet’s exposure to pests.

1. Flea & Tick Defense
This product is comprised of natural Brazilian oils and ingredients. It's not the individual elements that make Flea & Tick Defense so effective, it's the expert blending and balancing of the Brazilian oils with the pure water.

  • Lemongrass oil – When formulated into a spray for pets, promotes a shiny, healthy coat, and helps repel fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
  • Cinnamon oil – A versatile essential oil widely used in the household. It is an effective environmentally-friendly ingredient that helps deter mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and other pests from attacking your dog or cat.
  • Sesame oil – A rich, almost odorless oil derived from tiny sesame seeds. When combined with other essential oils, it helps protect against pests and promotes the health of your pet's skin and coat.
  • Castor oil – Castor oil has been used for years by veterinarians. When combined with other oils, helps to repel a variety of pests.
  • Purified water – Only the purest water is used to help blend and properly balance the unique formula of essential oils.

2. Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent
The ONLY acceptable spot on repellant. This product differs from Flea & Tick Defense in that it provides longer term protection. Each dose lasts one month, so you don’t have to keep re-applying it. It also offers an option for sensitive dogs that don’t like to be sprayed with anything.
This product is also an alternative for people with pets that swim or go out in the rain often, since Flea & Tick Defense has to be reapplied if your pet gets wet.

Spot on Topical Herbal Repellent uses three effective ingredients.
  • Geraniol – The essential oil derived from geraniums (a flower), geraniol is an effective plant-based mosquito repellent.
  • Wintergreen Oil – This oil is usually obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of the wintergreen plants, and is used for many things including to help relieve discomfort and pain, as well as to help repel insects.
  • Almond Oil – Used as a “carrier oil” that the essential oils are mixed with, almond oil is good for the skin and makes a great emollient.

3. Herbal Repellent Collar
Offering the longest term option available, the Herbal Repellent Collar is for large dogs, small dogs and puppies, and cats and kittens.
This product has a special blend of oils that allows it to work for up to 4 months – without using any potentially harmful chemicals.
It’s water-resistant so pets can swim with it on, and you don’t have to worry about reapplying it afterward.
What makes this product so unique is the way it is manufactured…The active ingredients are a part of the collar itself, not something that’s applied to just the outside of the collar. This allows the repellent to be diffused over a long period of time.

4. Efficient Tick Removel Tick Stick
For those occassions a tick needs to be removed, we recommend the Tick Stick.

Ticks bore into your pet's skin using backward-pointing spikes that can make safely removing them difficult. If you try to remove a tick by squeezing it and pulling it out, this could cause the tick to secrete more saliva into your pet and pieces of the tick's rostrum could remain embedded in your pet's skin.

The Tick Stick allows you to actually hold the tick (without compressing it) and remove it by using a twisting, rather than a pulling motion.

Why is the twisting motion so important? Ticks anchors its rostrum into your pet with backward-facing spikes. So, if you try to pull it out, the spikes work against you locking the tick ever tighter in place. And if you continue to exert more pulling pressure on the tick, the rostrum could break... potentially leaving tick body parts in your pet's skin.

The twisting motion allowed by the Tick Stick takes advantage of the tick's rostrum structure. As you twist, the spikes bend into the axis of rotation, making it easier to remove the tick.

The Natural Power of Cedar Oil
Organic, therapeutic-grade cedar oil is the active ingredient in Wondercide Flea & Tick Control for Pets + Home and Yard + Garden. Cedar oil has been used for centuries to manage pests – think Grandma’s cedar chest! Cedar is a sustainable, naturally occurring, renewable resource, and Wondercide’s cedar oil is produced by steam distillation with a proprietary fractionating process that renders it phenol-free.
Cedar oil affects octopamine, a compound that is essential to life for pheromone-driven “bad bugs” like fleas and ticks. Octopamine is responsible for regulating heart rate, movement and behavior in pests. It’s essential for life. Cedar oil blocks the octopamine neurotransmitter receptors in pests, causing them to be repelled from the area. When contacted with the cedar oil in Wondercide's Flea & Tick Control products, pests suffocate and die.
Mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and beneficial insects are not affected by cedar oil because they do not have octopamine neurotransmitters, and that's why this powerful pest-killing solution is so safe for pets and families.
