Categories: Seasonings
Yield: 1 Recipe

---------------------------------CAT BLEND---------------------------------
2 oz Dried pennyroyal
1 oz Dried catnip
1 oz Chamomile
3 dr Peppermint oil

---------------------------------DOG BLEND---------------------------------
2 oz Dried pennyroyal
1 oz Dried thyme
1 oz Dried wormwood
3 dr Pennyroyal oil

Note: Each ounce of dried herbs is equal to about 2 cups.

Use whole or cut herbs. This mixture can be refreshed by adding fresh oil
from time to time.

Make small sachets for small, tidy pets, or stuff the whole amount into a
large denim pillow for larger, itchier animal friends. Pennyroyal is
especially effective as a flea repellent.

[Karen's note: The photo in the magazine shows a gingham bag and a
flower-print bag. Both have the top edges pinked, and are tied with
