It’s that time of year again! Creepy-crawlies everywhere! While there is NO perfect way to protect yourself from ticks and insects, ticks are particularly difficult to avoid since commercial repellents (like DEET) don’t work well. We suggest using essential oils to help deter ticks and while there are many recipes that may be helpful, we added one below for guidance. We suggest that you try different combinations of oils since there is no perfect science in keeping ticks away. Be aware: this is to be use on CLOTHING, NOT directly on your skin!!!
