Natural/holistic flea & tick prevention

I'm talking prevention, not treatment.

I've started looking into essential oils and natural sprays. Any one have some guidance or suggestions? I refuse to put FrontLine or any similar chemicals on our pup.

She will be 9 weeks old when we bring her home next week. We live in a subdivision in Wisconsin.

Advice??

Thank! I'm more looking for a product recommendation. The natural mom and pop store in town referred me to this product:http://www.alzoo-vet.com/2012-11-19-09-21-40

Any experience or thoughts? Looks to be pretty oily but effective from reviews online.

Great information but I'my still not seeing a preventative spray - or the like.

Ugh. Perhaps I need to buy all the oils and mix a batch myself?
