Hate those pesty ticks and more so because they get on your best fur buddy? Here’s a great way to rid of them.
1 cup of water to a spray bottle,
2 cups of distilled white vinegar. (ticks hate the smell and taste of vinegar, and will be easily be repelled by this ingredient alone.
2 spoonfuls of vegetable or almond oil (both contain sulfur, another natural tick repellent).
(To make a repellent that will also deter fleas, mix in a few spoonfuls of lemon juice, citrus oil, or peppermint oil, any of which will repel ticks and fleas while also creating a nicely scented repellent. Spray onto the pet’s dry coat, staying away from sensitive areas including eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals. When outdoors for an extended period, spray this solution on two to three times per day.)
For you and your family:
2 cups distilled white vinegar and 1 cup of water. (In a spray bottle)
**To make a scented solution so you do not smell like bitter vinegar all day, add 20 drops of your favorite essential oil.
Eucalyptus oil is a calm, soothing scent that also works as a tick repellent, while peppermint and citrus oils give off a strong crisp scent that also repel ticks.
After mixing the solution, spray onto clothing, skin, and hair before going outdoors. Reapply every four hours to keep ticks at bay, and examine your skin and hair when back inside to make sure no ticks are on the body.
