One of the biggest things we’ve heard at the Market this year is, “Got anything for ticks?” They’re pretty horrendous this year around here. I myself have had at least 8-9. ? We’ve been testing out an new essential oil blend we’ve put together for ticks. We’re calling it “Ticked Off Blend”. It’s made with Cedarwood, Lemon Eucalyptus, Lemongrass essential oils in a small bit of castor oil so it’ll stay on the skin longer. I’ve been using it everyday for a week now and so far it seems to work. No ticks for the last week! Yay! I’m a happy camper, let me tell you!
Been using it on our dog (who’s really a Guinea Pig and doesn’t realize it). And the only time she’s had a tick in the last week was when I forgot to put it on her when letting her outside.
So, yep, I’d say it’s a success. The key is to put it on your dog and yourself every time you let them out. And don’t worry…it smells really good. Kinda woodsy, lemony, citronella-y all rolled into one.
In the same vein we’ve created a Flea & Tick Spray as well as a Flea & Tick Shampoo Bar for dogs. Add a fleabane pillow to your dogs bedding area and you should be good to go for flea and tick season this year. ?
We’ll be at the market tomorrow starting at 8a until 11:30a. Stop in and see us! ?
