Looking for a natural tick repellent? Oil of Rose Geranium is sworn to be effective by a number of people….
In reaearching the topic, I also found Garlic (eat some Italian food…Mange!) and Tea Tree Oil to be natural bug and tock repellents…..
Tea Tree Oil is a natural bacteriacide and fungicide, and if you have a tick on you they recommend putting a few drops of the oil on the tick, and it will in short order fall off, keep putting a couple drops of the oil on the bite for about 5 days to speed healing of the would as well….
Good luck with these nasty bastards!
