Totally Natural Cures, Like Grandma’s, Shared

I just love this website: Wendyl’s Green Goddess. It is full of recipes for green products for whatever ails you or your animals. New Zealander Wendyl and her family have created and tested many recipes and developed all the products that are advertised on her website, but what I love is that she doesn’t keep her recipes to herself – she shares them so you know exactly what’s in it.

Recipes are created from easily obtainable ingredients like baking soda, borax, soda ash, oxygen bleach and double strength white vinegar, which means you can make your own, or if time is a challenge, buy directly from the Green Goddess website knowing that what you are buying really is ‘green’.


I took especial note of this recent recipe to keep your cat flea-free:

100 g Brewer’s Yeast
30 g garlic powder
(not garlic salt!)
1 Tbs bran
1 Tbs wheatgerm

Whizz together in a food processor and feed 1 tsp per day per cat. I (Wendyl) just throw about half a cup in with a box of biscuits and give it a good shake up.

I plan to try it on our little hunter, Beau. He’s a bit of a fussy eater but loves gravy so it won’t be hard to mix it into his food. I’ll let you know how we go.
