Ticks are gaining more bad press as culprits for Lyme Disease, so it’s important to take precautions to avoid them.
Here’s two great ways:
- Carry a lint roller with you in your vehicle and when you’ve finished your walk simply do a roll over your clothing. It’s surprising how many actually land on you when you’re out in the woods.
- Spray your clothes with peppermint essential oils and / or use essential peppermint oil diluted with jojoba oil rubbed onto your skin. A slight tingling feeling is normal and shouldn’t present any problems. Peppermint (scent) naturally deters ticks, black flies and mosquitoes.
- Prevention is way better than dealing with Lyme Disease. Looking for more help avoiding bugs, email me at WeChangeLives@shaw.ca and I’ll be happy to send you some fun solutions.
