Thanks for checking out my cubit. I do have a recipe for ticks but I have not actually tried it myself but have been told it is extremely effective.
This is it:
Make up a synergistic blend of 10 drops lavender, 10 thyme and 10 eucalyptus in a small bottle
What you can do with that is few things. Before you go outside you can put approx. 8 drops of the above recipe in bowl of water and wash your exposed areas with the blend. Or you could add the drops to a small spray bottle of water and spritz yourself. I think I would prefer the latter because then I would also spray my clothing at the same time.
I would take the time to make the above blend and have it ready for when I need it. The oils are always much more effective when they are put into a synergistic blend because they are able to work with another and become even more powerful than when alone.
Also remember that if you do notice a tick with its swollen body attached to your skin, never pull it out. Evidently you can put a drop of thyme oil onto it and it will fall off and then follow with one drop of lavender every five minutes up to a total of ten to avoid infection and it will reduce the pain and swelling.
I hope this helps and let me know how it works,
