Deter those ticks

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.
