Why are we making all natural tick spray?
Warmer weather means more time outdoors- not only for us, but for our furry family members as well!
Prevention is key when it comes to protecting ourselves and our pets from the pests that accompany our family members. More and more we hear about tick bites leading to Lyme Disease, so we really need to be diligent about safety measures during times spent outside.
An easy, homemade solution to fending off Ticks is this simple spray made with essential oils and witch hazel. It’s a great natural alternative to the store bought options and is generally safe for both people and pets– just be sure to check with a physician or your veterinarian before using, and be cautious when dealing directly with pure essential oils!
