Tick season is coming up, which means it’s a great time to prepare some natural tick repellent, so here’s a super simple recipe:

Rose Geranium essential oil.

That’s it!

I haven’t tried it yet, but I read it works well, so I’m am going to order some Rose Geranium ASAP because I love hiking in the woods, but I do not like ticks.

From what I’ve read, all you have to do is add few dabs where ticks are likely to hitch a ride and they’ll be repelled before they climb aboard.

Want something that covers a bit more surface area?

Tick Repellent Spray

  • 1 glass or metal spray bottle
  • 1 tablespoon vodka or witch hazel
  • 40 drops Rose Geranium essential oil
  • ⅓ cup distilled water

Shake it well before you use it.

Want a great video of how to make it? I reat about this tick repellent over on Primally Inspired.

P.S. I’ve recently fallen in love with Edens Garden–the company, the essential oils, the brand. Check them out: Edens Garden
